Horrible Rude Office staff

"She doesn't take other people work" don't call here if you are referred here. I was by Dr Linfield, and was turned away for even a consultation because she doesn't take other peoples work. The receptionist was extremely rude.

Great Experience

Went to Dr. Anain for a Mommy Makeover. Had a full tummy tuck and Breast Augmentation. The office staff was very friendly and helpful. Dr. Anain gave great advice and help me through the size selection. I had no idea and she gave me a range to choose from. I am very happy with the results.

Dr Shirley Anain is a very talented and compassionate doctor and an incredibly kind person!!! She has treated me in the past and recently my young child over the past year to remove a fairly large birthmark and we couldn't be happier with the results!!! I highly recommend this doctor and would not think of going to anyone else!!!

Incompetent and unprofessional

I had numerous lacerations to my face that required stitches, 2 areas were in my beard. The ER doctor discharge papers stated to have the stitches removed by a plastic surgeon in 5 to 6 days. My PCP recommended Anain. I called her office and was told she would be happy to see me. I went at the scheduled time and was in the room waiting for her, with her PA already there. Anain walks in and sees me for a total of maybe 45 seconds. In a cocky tone she asks why I came to see her for this, why didn't I go back to the ER (remember, she said she would be happy to see me). She interrogates me on this a few times. In a belligerent tone she tells me she can not get the stitches out of the 2 areas in my beard, I will need to shave first. This makes no sense as if I shave I will cut the tops of all the stitches. She tells me her PA will take out the stitches not surrounded by hair, then she leaves. As mentioned, she gave me less than a minute. I ask her PA how to shave without cutting the stitches. The PA of course does not know, because there is no answer. I ask the PA to ask Anain. She goes to ask her but comes back and tells me she can’t, as she is already with another patient. I had to make last second plans to see a competent doctor to have the remaining stitches out in an appropriate time (the weekend was nearing and the stitches needed to come out). I work with a number of doctors, PA's, and have talked to 3 other plastic surgeons since this encounter. Everyone is blown away by the fact that a plastic surgeon found it impossible to take stitches out of a hairy area, as this happens on a daily basis in this field and people are not shaved down every time they are stitched up. Horrible attitude, no time given, and incompetent.
