I was diagnosed with skin cancer on my back and was referred to Dr. P by my surgeon. He closed my incision so my scarring on my back would be minimal. Dr P did A phenomenal job at closing the incision with minimmal scarring. We chose to a skin flap and not a skin graft and I'm so glad I listened to his advice. His staff is awesome about answering any questions you have and will make time to see you if needed. I will use Dr P in the future if ever needed again and appreciated his professionalism
The staff is courteous and the procedure was quick., I am happy with the results! Recovery time for my chests soreness went by pretty quick as well. At first I was unsure about getting the surgery to remove my gynecomestia , but I was reassured by staff as well as the doctors credentials. I would definitelly recommend this doctor if you are getting a procedure like mine.
