Staff & Facilities
As a founder of ACPS—The SurgiCentre, a private AAAASF-certified operating room licensed by the Texas Department of Health, Dr. Patronella developed and mandated strict safety guidelines for the SurgiCentre. In addition he implemented patient care guidelines that are a reflection of his commitment to providing patients with specialized service, excellence in surgical techniques, and comprehensive care.
"It’s very important to me that patients feel comfortable from the moment they walk in my office until the time they are discharged from my surgical center. In my experience as a plastic surgeon, I’ve learned that there is no more comforting feeling for patients than to see familiar, friendly faces when they come into the office. It gives them an added degree of comfort and reassurance."
"In addition, it gives me an added level of reassurance that my philosophy of patient care will be carried out consistently for each patient that we see. I cherish my staff and am very proud that we’ve had such longevity—most have been with me for an average of 10 years or more."
"My staff is genuine, accommodating, warm, compassionate, and down-to-earth, just like my patients. They are women to whom my patients can relate. Your practice develops a personality, and that’s the personality I want. The rewarding opportunity to serve our patients, partnering with them to help them achieve their aesthetic goals and the confidence boost they gain as a result, is a commitment we share."
