Reviews

"Dr. Chan is an amazing doctor. I first met him 9 yrs ago when I had breast cancer in left breast that required a mastectomy. He was working in the burn unit at BAMC at that time. At every appt, he answered every question I had (and I had a lot), never rushing me, always explaining everything every clearly. Professional, caring, compassionate, with a great bedside manner at the hospital. He did a tram-flap reconstruction and it went smoothly and w/o issues. Follow up was regular and always with the greatest concern for me. I found Dr. Chan again in July of this year when I was diagnosed with breast cancer in my rt breast. He did a needle expansion reconstruction this time. Again, no problems, follow up was like clockwork. He's at STARS now and the staff there are amazing. I couldn't offer a higher recommendation for Dr. Chan and STARS. If I ever need any type of plastic surgery in the future, he's the only doctor I will see."

"Dr Gronet is excellent in all aspects of professionalism. I came to Dr. Gronet as a kidney transplant recipient, in need of a panniculectomy. Dr. Gronet was diligent about checking my health before he would even consider doing surgery. He made me feel extremely confident in his abilities; he wasn't just willing to take money from me. The thoroughness of this Dr. throughout the whole process is much appreciated. Thank you Dr. Gronet for treating me with respect, for offering me the BEST options in my situation, thank you for the bedside manner, and for giving me a chance to reach my goals! You are appreciated."
