Not recommended. I had an appointment and was forced to wait for SEVERAL hours and was never told that I could go out and get anything to eat and come back. They made billing errors which I had to dispute. Was forced to take off all of my clothes for hand surgery and my things were moved while I was getting it done. When I came back my jewelry was missing. It eventually reappeared. My hand looks somewhat deformed. Horrible.
Went to see him about breast reconstruction after radiation. I was only six weeks out from radiation and he had said it was ok to proceed. He never read any of my medical record that I had given to him. After ending up in the hospital from complications from the surgery I was seen by another plastic surgeon who said that he should never of done the procedure with being so close to radiation and with my medical conditions. I am now left with chronic pain, disfigurement and wounds that will not heal. All of these are going to take addition surgeries in hopes to at least alleviate some of the damage.
After years of surgeries, supposedly to keep correcting a breast problem, I finally went to 2 other TOP plastic surgeons, and both asked, Why did he do that? I've never heard of that procedure....well I figured it out..they give a professional discount so they can charge you more the next time...it's all about the MONEY!! Well I must say I saw another Dr in 2013 and my breast surgery and never had another problem or surgery.
The only thing this Dr and his wife care about is MONEY, MONEY AND MORE MONEY. After seeing a few other plastic surgeons to fix problems that I endoured after being operated on by Dr Collini, I've come to the conclusion that he leaves things flawed so that you come back to get it fixed and he can charge you more money. Especially when you hear from other Dr's why did he do that and I've never heard of that procedure. Find a GOOD DR.
Dr. Collini changed my life. I was referred by my family physician for a breast reduction due to years of chronic back/neck/shoulder pain and headaches. It took about 3 weeks from my consultation to be in a operating room. The staff is absolutely a blessing! Such nice people who do there jobs so well and go above and beyond with their professionalism, friendliness, and they get things done as fast as possible. I am 3 weeks post op and I have not had any back pain what's so ever! My breasts are still healing but they look amazing. I could not have imagined a better outcome. I see the dr once a week for follow ups and the staff is so accommodating, I have never felt like a number, they have made this journey perfect for me. I recommend this surgeon 100%! I can not say enough good things about Dr.Collini and his entire staff.
