Philip N. Bushnick, M.D., F.A.C.S.

 Philosophy

 

As a cosmetic and plastic surgeon since 1983, specializing in both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, the most valuable information I have learned is to listen, and to understand my patients. Your wishes, your input, your questions are what will allow me to fulfill and surpass your expectations.

The most important patient to me is You. When you are calling, or in our office, or when you are in the operating room to have your surgery, I put your concerns, your safety, your privacy and your interests first at all times. In addition to consistently achieving beautiful, natural results, we want you to heal and recover quickly and to also look and feel your best. This is done using the latest technology and procedures.

We feel that all of our patients we will see for a long-term professional relationship, and we make ourselves available to you at any time that you need us. I am available to speak to you 24/7 through my office or answering service.

When you choose me to perform your surgical procedure, we understand that this is a private issue and your privacy is respected. We maintain that confidentiality at all times. When you leave my office I hope that you will feel that you have met a doctor you can trust and talk to.
