I chose Dr. Phan to perform my surgery after consulting with several other surgeons in town, and I’m so glad I did. The results were just what I was hoping for.
With the initial (free) consultation, he spent over an hour explaining every detail of what he recommended for me and why. I had 2 more visits prior to my procedure to ask more questions. I never felt rushed and was entirely comfortable after his explanations.
His superb training, experience, and board certification were also important factors in my decision.
His office and operating room are immaculate. I had very tolerable pain after my abdominoplasty, because he inserts a pain pump at the time of the procedure. This delivers non-narcotic pain medication, minimizing the need for opioid medications after the surgery.
I was pleased he offers total IV sedation rather then general anesthesia. This reduces the risks associated with anesthesia.
He was very attentive after the surgery, communicating with me daily, even when he was not on island.
In all, I felt completely cared for from beginning to end. Not only by Dr. Phan, but also by his incredibly friendly and helpful office staff (particularly Amber).
Dr. Phan is a highly skilled, detail-oriented, and caring surgeon. Hawaii is so lucky to have him!
