This Specific Doctor! - I view the choice for a plastic surgeon in 3 areas. Reputation; manner; results. I was walking in with a face that had been treated with Botox in such a way that, to me, I looked grotesque. I could smile on one side and the other side of my mouth was paralyzed by the fact that Botox took effect on one side but not on the other. The Botox had been administered by another doctor in another state. To say I was nervous about doing anything else at all was an understatement. I remember Dr. Graham saying to me, when I was considering a lower-priced dermatologist to address my face, "Think about it; it's your face." Good words. I did think about it and I did proceed with Dr. Graham. I had known numerous people who had seen him for successful surgeries, and many of them could afford to go to any doctor in the world. They chose Dr. Graham. He took the time with me, explained, reassured and scheduled me in a time frame for which I could be in town. He was very well recommended and has an unusually admirable reputation. That is what initially got me there. His manner was kind and sweet yet also had a touch of confidence and conviction that he could help me that sort of made me pay special attention to the level of expertise and care I was about to receive.That brings us to the results. No one but a few close friends know I had this surgery. Yet everyone says how great I look, that life must be treating me well, that I seem so happy and content these days. Dr. Graham created the perfect look with a gentle touch, with not too much but very much enough for significant improvement and for rolling back the clock. I am 64. Most people guess that I'm in my early to mid-40's. Maybe that's just being polite but the fact that these compliments come from such diverse individuals and on the heels of this surgery must be more than coincidental.I must compliment, too, the staff at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center. Helpful, polite, kind, caring, reassuring....they are extremely supportive and no question seems to mundane or silly for them to answer. They are prompt at returning a phone call and bend over backwards to make scheduling work. The office feels good. It is comfortable, tasteful, clean, nurturing, peaceful.I would go to Dr. Braun Graham again. Plastic surgery is not inexpensive but we don't get another body to live in. Not only would I recommend his work to others, I would return to his care myself knowing I was in the best hands possible. I say this, too, because I have had previous procedures and while I have interacted with some very good physicians and surgeons, I believe Dr. Graham is at the very top of the list in the qualities I value.
"Excellent" is the best word to describe Dr. Derby and his entire staff. He is a communicator, explaining my healing process as it progresses, to a healthy level, I might add. I am comfortable with Dr. Derby and observe the "Excellent" teamwork built between him and his nurses. The administrative staff is also attentive to appointment arrangements, billing, and when on the phone, are "MAGIC." That is, Making A Good Impression on the Customer. I appreciate the quality of care I receive.
The doctor listened to me, explained the procedures, manipulated my face with his fingers to approximate results of the procedures, and the fee was provided and discussed with the patient coordinator before I left.I had also attended the seminar prior to my consult. It provided much needed background knowledge.
Dr. Derby repaired the upper tip of my nose that was scraped away by Moh's surgery. I was concerned about the wound repair surgery and how it would affect my appearance. Dr. Derby was extremely caring throughout the surgery and healing process. He made me feel that I was his most important patient. His skilled hands repaired a nose that looked better than before. I am very thankful to Dr. Derby and with full confidence, I would recommend him to anyone. I was fortunate to experience his talent.
Expectations Exceeded by Doctor Brian M. Derby MD - Doctor Brian M. Derby is by far an amazing person and surgeon! This doctor single handedly surpassed any other doctor I have ever seen! His medical expertise made me feel VERY comfortable. Doctor D works out of Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center. Personally calling three other competitors, this wonderful and amazing staff got me in the DAY I called there. Two days later, moved around their own schedule to accommodate what I asked for! What doctor can you say will do that for you? Will go above and beyond with you? What doctor, let alone plastic surgeon will make you feel like more than a paycheck? That's Doctor Derby!!! None of my questions were unanswered. I wanted some big sexy tits, and I got them. I'm so greatful that he didn't have to cut into my nipples, as that was my worst fear. I mean, I got some SEXY tittys! These babies are perky! My incisions are very small, and the scar cream is making them almost unnoticeable. When he pulled off my price tags (medical tape), I was on top of the world! This doctor is one heck of an awesome guy! His staff is wonderful. He has hands of gold! I have never laughed so hard in a doctors office before. If you want great bedside manner, a fun experience, someone who will follow up and be there for you, and a comfortable experience.... this is it! What are you waiting for? My under the muscle D sized boobs were the best Christmas present ever! CALL THIS GUY! It was such a good time, I can't wait to go back and see them! SRQ plastic surgery and their staff ROCKS! <3 - - The only regret I have is not doing it sooner! I wanted this for FIVE years! I started off with pancake flaps. In the end, I have amazing knockers. After two children, I was very worried if I could be fixed with out having a lift done. Never did I ever want to be cut around my nipple. I got EXACTLY what I wanted!!! Out of any purchase I have made in my life, this certainly surpasses any single thing I have ever bought. What the heck was I waiting for? One day I just got the crazy urge. "This is my week, I want this now. I'm going to find a local doctor that can make his happen." After calling three doctor's offices.... I was in!!!
