Dr. Pavone is amazing. He guided me through and performed my prophylactic bilateral mastectomy with trans flap in ... which had good outcomes and has since treated me on several occasions for reconstructive needs. He has done the same for ... who had breast cancer. Our family is grateful for his expert skill and caring manner.

No Rating Given
Since I was somewhat predisposed against having reconstruction, I felt he didn't really want to be there to discuss with me. He talked really fast and showed me pictures from his phone to explain before & after, but seemed like he wanted to brushed over the long term Issues.
No Rating Given
*Dr. Pavone is the FIRST physician (plastic surgeon that does diep.) to show empathy and acknowledge BIL. He is the ONLY position to ask for breast implant registration card. I can't say enough about his outstanding care and compassion he is way beyond a 5 star. He recognizes issue with implants unlike other physicians.
