Terrible bedside manner

I have never met a doctor with a worse bedside manner than Dr. Andres. I was referred to him by my breast surgeon after learning I had breast cancer. I was given the option of lumpectomy followed by radiation vs. double mastectomy with immediate reconstruction by my breast surgeon. Though I was leaning towards double mastectomy, I was hoping to talk through the pros and cons of each from a cosmetic perspective with Dr. Andres. At my consult he showed no empathy for my personal situation, or willingness to talk through the surgical options. Apparently he doesn't expect anyone to have any questions when they come into his office. Instead he referred me back to my breast surgeon for answers. I found his communication style to be short, cold and defensive. I have since relayed the encounter with my breast surgeon's office and will be seeking a new plastic surgeon.

Breast Revision post douboe masectomy and previous reconstruction

I can't say enough great things about Dr Andres. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012 and had a double mastectomy in early 2013. I was 42 years young at the time and felt even younger. Reconstruction was important to me, as was a good result. Reconstruction did not go well for me the first couple of tries with a different surgeon. My consult with Dr Andres changed everything. He is a quite man that listens to what you have to say. He does not judge or make you feel unreasonable for wanting to look and feel sexy/attractive again. He also does not make promises that you will be perfect but does promise that he will do his absolute best for you!! I am soo happy with my outcome, it was so much better than I thought possible. I can wear a bathing suit and fill out a tee shirt and I look and feel attractive. Like I said I can't say enough great things about Dr Andres. He is an absolute artist!!

Breast Cancer Survivor

I will be forever grateful for Dr. Andres and his staff. He did my reconstructive surgery after my double mastectomy. In such a stressful situation in my life he made things just a little bit easier. He cared about me as a person and my cancer journey. His bedside manner is exceptional and I would refer him to anyone battling breast cancer.

2 TIme Breast Cancer Survivor

After my 1st battle with cancer, I was left with significant tissue damage from radiation treatment. The damage made it tricky to do reconstruction, but Dr. Andres did a wonderful job. I couldn't be happier with the results. The friendliness and support from Dr. Andres and his staff made my journey a little less stressful. They understand and have compassion for their patients who are dealing with this horrific disease.

Two Stars

Dr Andres is a talented surgeon. However he and his office are not good at explaining procedures. His assistant suggested I have a larger implant on one side because I was concave on that side. But that created a breast that was one size larger than the other and concave. In addition, she placed the tattoo of my areola asymmetrical with my natural areola.
