About the Practice

Practice Philosophy

Dedication to Excellence
The art of cosmetic surgery is rapidly changing and evolving. Each year, new innovations and techniques develop and become available to our patients after they have been shown to be safe and effective. It is the dedication to our profession, our patients and our own integrity that fuel our desire to remain at the forefront of this specialty, and enable us to present them to you with pleasure.

Dr. Francis is focused on providing you with the most up to date procedures and technology available to enhance your appearance and self-image. "Quality of Care," your care, is paramount in our practice and we are quite proud of our achievements in this realm. Our entire staff is dedicated to treating you as an individual with your own special needs. This concept of a Boutique Practice offers special attention to each patient because we cater to a select number patients. This allows us to devote more time to you. Our reputation of quality patient care is well earned. Each and every staff member, including our physician, is readily accessible to your questions and concerns.
You will first experience Dr. Francis's warmth and expertise as you enter the office, a beautiful location just off Park Avenue. The location and design offer a serene and very private experience. Our outpatient operating suite is a state of the art surgery center.

Dr. Francis is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He specializes in aesthetic surgery of the breast, body, and face. Dr. Francis and his staff are dedicated to providing the very best surgical care possible to their patients.

We look forward to meeting you in the near future.
