To provide the safest environment for our patients and based on recommendations from the CDC to minimize the spread of Coronavirus, we are asking all patients call our office before entering the facility. Once the doctor or nurse is ready to see you we will give you a call and escort you directly to your consultation room.
Dial in number is 210-692-1181 extension 0.
In addition to eliminating gatherings in our waiting rooms, we are also screening every individual before they enter our facility. Any person who is sick, or symptomatic staff, patients or visitors will be instructed to stay home. Appropriate plans for follow-up care will be made for symptomatic patients on a case-by-case basis.
We have also heightened our already vigilant cleaning and disinfecting procedures to ensure a healthy environment for our staff and patients.
We want our patients to know your safety and the safety of our staff is our top priority! To learn more about COVID-19 and steps we are taking to reduce the spread of this disease CLICK HERE.

After testing positive for the BRCA2 gene mutation, Emily chose to undergo prophylactic mastectomy with immediate DIEP flap breast reconstruction
Allison traveled from West Hampton, Georgia to San Antonio, Texas to undergo DIEP flap breast reconstruction. One week after surgery, she shares how she is feeling.
That's when I heard about another procedure called the DIEP flap. That stands for Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator. In this procedure very little - if any - muscle is removed. The perforating vessels, along with the overlying flesh, are removed - but the muscle is left in place. The recovery time is quicker, but the surgery is much more involved, and it takes a microsurgery expert to perform it.
Let me take this opportunity to "thank you" for giving me a new perspective on life. I never though I would be as happy as I am now after hearing the words "you have breast cancer."
Was I really going to this? What would I look like? Who voluntarily does this I thought to myself…. I do!! This is to save my life.
