EXPERT Q&A

Q: Why is it so important to spend time with patients?

What our experts say:

One of my patients told me, “If something is not right, do it again until it is perfect.” I cannot rush into the room and inject someone. The extra time you spend in the operating room or office will save time and distress after the procedure and patients appreciate that. You can’t take shortcuts because the results will not be good. You must be sure everything is done right, otherwise do not quit.
