Amazing Suregon, Staff, and Process

I had some obstacles with my breasts due to benign fiber-adenomas and was unsure if that would affect the process. Dr. Colen assured me that this would not be a problem. It started with my phone call to make my consultation appt. in which I spoke to Maria, who was the FRIENDLIEST nurse I have ever dealt with- I knew it would be a positive experience. I then went for my consultation, booked my surgery, and now have the MOST natural breasts I could ever hope for! Dr. Colen and her staff described every step of the process to a t. Truly the best!

Cancer patient distraught over need for mastectomy

Dr Colen is an outstanding, highly skilled plastic surgeon. She used the latest techniques to achieve the best possible results for me. She takes time to explain the procedures and what to expect afterward during recovery. She is thoughtful, caring and professional. Her staff is also a very great part of her entire group of medical professionals. If you have to go through a terrible experience such as breast reconstruction due to cancer, Dr Colen is a great surgeon to have by your side.
