Hey la_angel, I don't know what to say to that. That's kinda what I am doing, by asking for past patient feedback. Other than this and checking the state board for license and malpractices, I really don't know how else to check credentials.
I definitely want to do this with a qualified surgeon and will travel if absolutely necessary, however I would love to stay in the state.
You saw his site, and it is more detailed than most sites I have visited. Admittedly, I have not been looking all that long. Maybe a few months now. I came across the usual suspects, such as Dr. T, Dr. N, and a few others, but to tell you the truth that's only about ten out of all the thousands out there practicing. So I'm not too surprised that you may not have heard of him. The site where I got his name from is "make me heal" dot com.
I think one of the problems with these forums is that you never really know the source of info. that you are getting, and much of it is contradictory. For all I know, people here are affiliated with a certain doctor or people on the other site are. I am just trying to gather as much info. from as many sources as possible before making a decision. I have spoken on the phone with someone I can only assume is a past patient as well as viewed pictures that people have sent me of their results.
However, I want to go with someone that has a great track record even if that does mean flying or paying a little extra. I want it done right. I'm sure if I spent enough time on this site I would come up with who is the surgeon of choice around here, but if you all can clue me in it would be greatly appreciated.
Just looking for the most qualified doc.
