Dr Vendemia and his staff are truly the gold (platinum?) standard for aesthetic surgery. He & his team are head and shoulders above any other doctor I have ever dealt with.
After 5 consultations on 2 coasts I was beginning to wonder if I would ever find a doctor that would understand my needs.
From our first meeting, Dr V made me feel comfortable and well informed and gave me honest, straight forward advice without any up-selling.
He simply listened to what I wanted and laid out my options.
What I truly appreciated in that first consultation was that he spoke to me like a peer and an equal, he did not talk down to me or brush over things in the condescending way that doctors often speak to patients.
I have a very crazy and unpredictable schedule. and Karin, his lovely patient coordinator, was able to move mountains to get me in for my initial surgery within a week.
My surgery was performed in the Center for Specialty Care, which I also highly recommend. Everything went well and again I was very impressed by Dr Vendemia & his team’s professionalism and manner.
A few weeks later, when I had to come in for a very last minute follow up due to the crazy NYC heat wave, Karin & Dr. Vendemia were somehow able to fit me into their packed schedule to accommodate an extremely important meeting I could not move. I could not believe they were able to do this for me.
As mentioned above, I had done quite alot of research into my procedure and met with several different surgeons. Yes, some were less expensive than Dr V, but not by much, and I am a firm believer that you get what you pay for. The dedicated follow up alone is worth it. You will not be ignored or left to navigate your healing alone after any procedure here.
I feel that Dr Vendemia’s offices alone say alot about the kind of practice he runs. It is sleek, modern, welcoming and impeccably clean without being stuffy, imposing or so posh that you feel like that is where all your money is going. (i had a few consults where i felt it was all style over substance.. )
Karin is extremely personable and professional and very available for any questions, comments or concerns. I have NEVER had the kind of responsiveness I received from Karin from any medical professional.
Karin is like 5 people in one really efficient person, she handles everything with such grace and calm.
If you are considering aesthetic surgery Dr Vendemia will, without a doubt, give you the absolute best value for your money, as well as the most beautiful result.
I am an extremely active person and an avid surfer, and am now free of the discomfort and pain that I had lived with for years before I came to Dr Vendemia.
Every time I get on my surfboard and feel no pain I will be sending a little mental thank you to the top notch team at MAS.
