I was a little nervous about a couple things and had a few questions but Dr. Furnas explained everything in complete detail and made me feel a lot more comfortable about my decision. I did not feel pressured into to making a decision on the spot, which was nice. They really made sure I had all the information I needed. Lon Tran was very kind & informative as well and helped me during the consultation. I am very excited to see the results after surgery!! :)"
