Dr. Greenwald spends approximately 45 minutes with each new patient and personally exlains the risks and benefits of any proposed procedure. Computer imaging is performed when needed and can be a valuable patient education tool.
Staff & Facilities
Our private Ambulatory Plastic Surgery Facility is certified at the highest level by American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities. Accreditation is a voluntary mark of quality, and indicates that our facility is fully equipped with the latest systems for ensuring your safety during and after surgery. The APSF is a state-of-the-art, same-day surgery facility designed and engineered specifically for plastic surgery. Outstanding comfort, convenience, privacy and lower cost are among the advantages that the facility offers to our cosmetic surgery patients. For any procedure requiring more than a local anesthesia, anesthesia is provided by a board-certified anesthesiologist.
Computer imaging is available and is a valuable tool for both doctor and patient. The visual impact is beneficial for you and results in less pre-surgical anxiety. The imaging process makes it easier for you to convey your goals and expectations. It is an excellent communication tool and has added to the overall comfort level of my patients.
Skin Care Products
Payment for cosmetic procedures is due prior to surgery (financing is available). Dr. Greenwald participates with many insurance plans that cover selected reconstructive procedures.
