“The staff, and particularly Dr. Leppink, took as much time as was needed to explain my situation and what choices were available to me. I felt all the questions I had were thoroughly answered, and it was made clear that any further questions from me could be discussed in person. I am confident this is the right fit for me and plan to get on the schedule for early May.”* -Breast Implant Revision, 11/14/2019, Dr. Leppink
