It is a great thing for patients to get to know the staff that will be taking care of them. Most physicians’ offices have a core staff that you will see on your visits. With a surgeons practice, their are office staff and operating room staff. When you have surgery, you may only meet the surgical staff for a few seconds, often medicated and ready to go to sleep under anesthesia. It would be a great thing if you can come be familiarized with staff members who will meet you pre operatively, assist with your surgery, and care for you post op0eratively. You would get to know, trust, and feel secure with these individuals. These associates would be there for your entire experience!!
Michael S. Beckenstein, M.D. a Birmingham plastic surgeon has a unique staff that has the ability to be there for your entire experience with his practice. He has uniquely trained and certified associates that you will see during your comprehensive consultation process, they will be there in the operating room for you, and will see you after your surgery. They will be involved in your entire experience! Most surgeons do not have staff members that can work in the operating room and care for you as well. They use the hospital staff that has no emotional ties to you. Dr. Beckenstein’s certified surgical first assistants are unique to the state of Alabama and Alabama plastic surgeons. You will meet them during your initial visit and develop a special bond with them. This will give you an incredible sense of security when you go to the operating room where it is filled with new faces. Our familiar faces will make you more relaxed entering surgery.
