Hi Dr. Cohen:
I wanted to thank you for several things regarding my breast reduction surgery, but I'll focus on four items of special import:
First, the attention you paid to my concern about anesthetic side effects was both reassuring and targeted, with wonderful results. I can't tell you how many times I was told by anesthesiologists that I wouldn't have side effects from whatever combination of drugs they were using to put me under for prior, non-elective surgeries. That was my only hesitation in doing the breast reduction surgery. I now have a protocol for my upcoming colonoscopy and how neat is that? Pretty neat. Thank you and Dr. Curtis for that. Your collective actions have made a lasting impact.
Second, your front-to-back office process is top notch. From the administrative paperwork to the actual procedure itself and back around to the follow-up, it was easy to navigate through. Your system works – the administration, the anesthesiologist, the nurse(s) and the accompanying information/communication made it quite easy to prepare for and comply with the surgery requirement. Thank you for having an efficient process. It made my job as a patient very easy.
Third, thank you for your referral to Dr. Liu after the pathology results from my breast tissue warranted further examination. I really appreciate the fact that you took the time to not only read the path report but to follow that up with a recommendation to your colleague. I'm on a routine follow-up schedule with Dr. Liu now, and in fact will have my breast MRI next week.
Fourth, and most importantly, you really are quite an artist and I was glad to be part of the 'artistry in action.' Your gentle-mannered approach and a genuine smile when you see the results, speaks volumes of artistic pride. You are a dedicated, kind-hearted soul, Dr. Cohen – it informs your work product, and I am more than pleased with the results of my surgery. Thank you!
Do you know what it's like to reclaim one's posture after years of leaning forward for a lifetime to accommodate large breasts?
Do you know the delight of not having puddles of sweat under one's breasts in the AZ heat?
Do you know the joy of burning one's underwire bras once and for all after years of mammary confinement? (I know, I know -that's a bit dramatic ... but you get the visual).
In the absence of wearing at-shirt that says "Breasts by Cohen," I will take to the internet to sing your praises. I wanted to wait six months before I did that so I could speak 'with authority' on the whole process. You passed, dude, you passed! And you are very special indeed because I do not write recommendations for service providers. You are one of the few people I've encountered in my life that are truly excellent in what they do. So, yes, I'll write a recommendation.
In closing, remember what seems like a L-O-N-G time ago I said you not only walk on water but you walk on Perrier and you mentioned that your preference was Pellegrino? Well, you earned your Pellegrino dude, and here it is! Don't drink it all in one sitting!
Thank you again for being the kind of physician that should be the standard in your profession. If I ever choose to do any other body modification, I will be back. So hurry up and take the 'after' photos so I can go back into this Arizona heat and marvel at the fact that my breasts don't sweat on this 100+ degree day!
