Gynecomastia Surgeons are Rated
Trying to find the right gynecomastia surgeon can be a daunting experience. All surgeons claim they are experts on their websites, and, of course, that is to be expected. So how do men find the right gynecomastia surgeon for their male breast reduction procedure?
Men are understandably embarrassed by their man boobs and don’t usually share their condition with others, in fact, most have spent many years trying to hide their chests. So asking for a referral most likely is not going to happen!
Read the Reviews
Miguel Delgado, M.D. suggests that men look for reviews on the internet written by men who have gone through the surgery. There are many sites that offer unbiased opinions directly from the patients.
Some of these sites are:
There are many more out there, so do your homework and see what other patients have to say about the surgeons you are considering. Remember though, no one is perfect, and most doctors may have one or two bad reviews, do not let that be your deciding factor. Look at the overall reviews for a good indication of the qualifications of the surgeon. Some patients have unrealistic expectations and are never satisfied.
Reviews can give you a plethora amount of information before you even set foot in the doctor’s office. Patients give ratings such as:
1. Ease of making appointments
2. Friendliness of the staff
3. Average wait time
4.Does the doctor answer all your questions?
5. Do you feel rushed?
6. Satisfaction of surgery results
7. Good follow up care
All of these points are very important and a big advantage in helping you choose your surgeon.
