Stepping Out Of The Background
Changing From Outside In
Deserving To Feel Beautiful
Plastic Surgery is sometimes viewed as purely cosmetic. However, it can also affect your health in a positive way. Take this patient testimony as an example.
"Dr. Amspacher treated my mother for cancer of the leg, which I want to say, he was wonderful to her. I truly appreciated him and his staff. While I was sitting in her room and the doctor came in, my mother introduced him and I. He shook my hand, looked away and quickly looked back at me and said, 'That looks to be possible basal cell on your nose, and if you don't make an appointment with me, I would hope you make it with someone to get that looked at.'
I live 350 miles from my mother and his office, but I made an appointment when I got home, and sure enough, it was cancer! My doctor took five spots off me that day, and I will see her every six months from now on. So thank you, Dr. Amspacher!"
About Dr. Amspacher
"Dr. Amspacher did my reconstruction almost four years ago. I adored him and his nursing team. He left for a family vacation two weeks after surgery, personally took time to call me during his vacation to address a couple of concerns instead of having an on call doctor do it. He goes above and beyond for his patients and does amazing, meticulous work!"
"Over the top thrilled with the results. Much better than I ever imagined. I had a breast reduction and the staff, the appointments (and promptness of all) including the hospital experience exceeded my expectations."
"Dr. Amspacher and his team were absolutely amazing. From my consultation to my post operation check ups, I felt very informed, comfortable and that I was in very good hands. I was always able to contact the office and get right in if I had any questions."
"Absolutely great!! Very professional, informative and very caring. Makes you feel like you are his only patient. Reviews everything with you and makes sure he understands what you are wanting. Very relaxing clinic – I highly recommend to anyone ... they truly care about "you" as a person."
"I don't hand out 5-star ratings very often, but Dr. A and his staff deserve it. Dr. A is an amazingly gifted surgeon with the best bedside manner. His staff is also great with putting me at ease and answering all my questions."
