I am so sorry to report my experience was completely odd, confusing, and uncomfortable. After months of researching Pacific Lipo, reading some pretty great reviews, watching videos, seeing the pictures, and sharing my excitement with friends, I am left feeling completely let down. I feel conflicted even writing this review. I have only ever written positive reviews, but hopefully it will save someone else a lot of time and disappointment. The consultation started and I was told by Rod how flat my stomach could be and that I was a great candidate for arm lipo. It was all pretty normal until I asked a question about recovery time, the numbing process, and going back to work. This is where everything changed. Rod said he believed I would be more comfortable with another doctor. I was really confused so I asked him to clarify if he was suggesting I go with someone else (because I asked about pain and the procedure??) and he confirmed yes. He ended to conversation abruptly and ended up opening the door and holding it open for me to exit before I had a chance to button the top of my jeans! I guess don't inquire about pain or process if you are at all interested in Pacific Lipo. I felt rushed out but was still wrapping my head around what just happened. On the way out Jasmine the receptionist reviewed my chart and again told me I could not receive treatment from Pacific Lipo. The whole process was about 10 minutes from his arrival to leaving the office. I would have liked to make that decision my own and maybe have been asked what my tolerance for pain is, but honestly I would not trust my body to anyone who has poor bedside manner or who is uncomfortable with an inquisitive patient. Again, I am truly sorry to not have good news to report! The whole thing was awkward, uncomfortable, and rushed.
