A note from Dr. Reid:

Skill and compassion go hand in hand when providing exceptional patient care. As a plastic surgery professional, I stay up to date on the latest advancements in plastic surgery in order to provide the most current treatment options for my patients. As a doctor, I recognize that my patients are unique individuals who have placed a great deal of trust in me and my team. That is just one reason why I value each and every patient relationship. When a patient comes in for a consultation, I evaluate if a patient is a good candidate for the procedure they are considering, then educate and advise them on expectations and realistic results.
