“To be in such capable hands is a true privilege. From the beginning to the end there is thoroughness, perfection, and not to forget kindness. Dr. Macadam is very personable and makes one feel comfortable. Even on a Sunday morning when I was concerned of a possible infection, I sent her an e mail, she requested a picture and responded very quickly to put my worries to bed.”
“I had a great experience working with Dr. Macadam. Everything went very smoothly prior to surgery, everything was very clear and she was very helpful with all my questions. The results turned out really well after the surgery (I had abdominoplasty) and she has also been very helpful through the recovery process. I would highly recommend her to others based on my experience.”
