The visit the doctor was very nice. The follow up was horrible. I've been calling for months to get a time frame of recovery and where the procedure would take place with 9 phone calls and no response. I spoke tohis personal assistant, the scheduler and whoever they referred me and nothing. Not one returned phone call. Make another appointment. This is after MRIs and the ok for the operation. Not comfortable with an inefficient office.

I went in for a consult for lipo suction. I did not have to wait more than five minutes to see Dr. Brewer. He was very professional and friendly. He was very honest about what could and could not be done,which I appreciated. I have not had any procedures done yet but I am planning for mid July.
