“Feeling good about one’s self is important,” he said. “It’s the fundamental fuel of well-being. I believe that delighting the eye promotes health of the mind and body. I strive to achieve natural, beautiful results and treat my patients with honesty, respect, and care. I never lose sight of the importance of safety, quality, commitment, experience, and attention to detail.”
Today, Dr. D is part of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the John Staige Davis Society of Plastic Surgery in Maryland. Each established, elite organization holds accomplished plastic surgeons to the highest standard for safety and quality care.
