Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.

Reconstructive breast surgery

I don't think he has a clue. After seeing him every 2nweeks for almost a year with unacceptable results, I had to see another plastic surgeon to REMOVE the implant and redo the surgery he did. I had constant internal bleeding that he said " some people have this". I was told by the other Doctor that that is not true. Not a competent doctor

Poor experience

I agree with the two reviews that mentioned Dr. Dobke's anger and defensiveness. In the beginning he seemed fine and told me if there was anything I was unhappy about within a year after my surgery he would fix it no problem and I was given a quote for how much the revision would cost. Well the problems began when I spoke with him about wanting a revision surgery because I didn't think I had a good result from the first one. He was angry, dismissive and defensive. He actually had the nerve to tell me that all he had promised was to make me look "a little better" . I'm sorry but I don't believe anyone shells out 10K merely to look a "little" bit better. I've seen plenty of surgerys like mine from other doctors and they seem to make their patients look great. When we as patients are paying a great deal of money, we have a right to expect a good job to be done. Dr. Dobke tried to make me feel that my complaint was all in my head but I was insistent he address my issue. I don't know how he got to be head of plastic surgery because I don't think he's that good and he certainly does not know how to listen to his patients. I have never experienced a doctor with such anger before and in my opinion it's very unprofessional to engage in such a poor manner. As the other reviewer mentioned, Dr. Dobke also kept cutting me off while I was trying to talk. I would never recommend him to anyone.
