After meeting with several Plastic Surgeon's in the Dallas area, I decided that I would have Dr. Hobar perform my Breast Reduction / Lift in July of 2010.
I like his bedside manner, as well as his comment about me wanting to "look the way i feel" on the inside.
My surgery went well, and my recovery went fairly well, until I ended up with what his nurse called "cellulitis" in my left breast. I was experiencing pain and raised veins radiating from my breasts down into the stomach area. When I went into the office and spoke about the discomfort, Dr. Hobar (as well as his Nurse) looked at me like I was an Alien.
I was extremely uncomfortable at the looks I was getting from both of them during the entire exam. They prescribed an antibiotic, and sent me home. I was back in the office probably 2 weeks later with the same pains that did not subside. Same thing.....a stare from Dr. Hobar, as well as his nurse (who in my opinion is very short, and rude).
Dr. Hobar told me that he was sorry, but what I was experiencing had nothing to do with the reduction. His nurse told me that they would call me for my "after" photo's in July of 2011, and that was the last time they would need to see me. That was it. I felt VERY MUCH alone, and like they were finished caring for me as a patient since the surgery was done.
The pain is gone, I have had no further complications, and I have also not heard from Dr. Hobar's office for my final appointment and photo's. I am VERY MUCH disappointed by the neglect, and feel like I was just a number.
I should have had a final visit with Dr. Hobar,as well as AFTER photo's taken. I have YET to receive a phone call,or even a LETTER to schedule that final appointment.
It is now September 2011, and I would not go back to his office at this point if they called.
This is a POOR EXAMPLE of how a Surgeon and his staff should treat a patient.
