I am really pleased that I chose Dr. Bachelor for my foray into facial plastic surgery. Choosing a surgeon felt like a huge decision because it was a. something I’d wanted to do forever and b. it’s on my face (and you’re awake during the procedure), so it was really important to me to find someone that I felt was both highly skilled at the procedure and that I was comfortable with in terms of bedside manner and general demeanor. Since we are technically still in a pandemic, diligence with regard to Covid procedures was also important to me.
My dad is a retired physician and part of what I like about Dr. Bachelor is he reminds me of my dad! He seems genuinely kind, and I felt comfortable bringing up any and all questions during my consultation and pre-operative appointments. I also feel like I got straightforward answers to those questions, which made me feel confident in choosing Dr. Bachelor. I felt like he was/is genuinely interested in working on my case and does not see me as just another dollar sign. I have never felt any pressure or had someone try to upsell me at this practice.
I also appreciate the staff at both locations and have found them friendly and helpful in the relatively short time I’ve been a patient at this practice. Also, THANK YOU in general to this practice for the amount of communication I’ve received as a patient, both regarding my surgery and just in terms of simple stuff like scheduling/appointment reminders. Getting a “happy healing” card signed by the doctor and his team a few days after my procedure was another little thing that stood out to me.
The procedure was pretty straightforward and it’s obvious Dr. Bachelor and his team have it down to a science. I never expected to feel as comfortable sedated but awake on an operating table with someone doing scary stuff just millimeters from my eyeball as I did on the day of my blepharoplasty. Today was my first post-operative appointment, but even immediately upon being discharged after surgery, I could tell I had received excellent care. Dr. Bachelor bet I wouldn’t need any Rx pain meds, and he was right – I haven’t even taken a Tylenol post-op. With each day of healing I’m more excited about my results.
This is a long way of saying I feel cared for at this practice and am really glad I chose Dr. Bachelor to perform my lower blepharoplasty. I would certainly recommend anyone considering this procedure see him for a consultation.
