I think most of these comments speak for themselves, but I’ve added photos in some instances, in case you’re curious!  The photos are good for showing how I do just as much or as little surgery as a doll or animal’s person wants. For more recent comments, please to the hospital home page.  For many more before and after photos, and patient stories, please check out my tumblr blog.
