Dr. Dick's work is fantastic. I had a face and neck lift and I couldn't be happier. My face and neck look entirely natural but more healthy and of course, younger. I have a co-worker (who didn't know that I had a facelift) who said I looked wonderful and that I had a "glow" about me! She couldn't guess that I had the facelift but thought I looked fantastic, which is evidence of an awesome result. ...

I have been having this procedure done now for a few years by Dr. Olsen. I have seen amazing results. Numbing is done so the procedure goes very smoothly. Including those annoying wrinkles and even brown spots. The results improve more and more over the next few months. But the biggest asset going there is that they welcome you and provide a very warm and caring environment. They are 100% honest a...

Before I talk about Dr. Olsen, I MUST first express high marks on the staff. Upon walking through the front entrance, Shelly greets you with smiles, warmth and if you're lucky, a hug as well. Dr. Olsen comes out and welcomes you and (yes, yet ANOTHER hug) and escorts you back to the examining room. She emits such loving warmth I cannot even begin to express with mere words. The procedures she does...

I have spider veins and his wife, Dr. Shirley Olsen, used a laser. She truly is an angel in disguise. She is amazing with her skills and equally with her care and bedside manners. Words cannot express what she does.

Every visit starts with checking in with Shelly, who is very friendly and helpful. Dr. D's nurse, Ellie, then escorts you to a waiting room. She has been with Dr. Dick since the beginning and knows everything. We have good conversations about kids, and aging gracefully. After Dr. Dick performs his artistry, you check out with Caroline, who has a delightful British accent and a delightfully dry sen...

The initial consultation went well. I was initially put off by the $150 consultation fee, especially given that this was a surgery completely covered by my insurance. However, after it was explained that this fee covered all future office visit charges, should I move forward with the surgery, I was persuaded to pay this amount out of pocket. I was also told any remaining balance would be refunded to me once the follow up care was complete (I received no refund, but had many follow up visits without ever being billed). Dr. Dick seemed very confident that I would meet the insurance requirement for the reduction (there is a minimum amount of tissue that needs to be removed for it to be classified as and quot;medicaland quot; vs. and quot;cosmeticand quot;). We met in his office, where he took notes about our conversation and pictures for the insurance company. A few weeks later I was denied the procedure by my insurance company. This was extremely upsetting (my condition was painful), but I figured it was just a stereotypical denial of services by the big bad insurance company machine. I did not receive any information fro Dr. Dick's office regarding a refund (although it was not made clear if one would be received if my claim was denied). Fast forward approximately 5 months, when I received a call from the office out of the blue asking if I was still interested in the surgery. It turned out the office person in charge of submitting claims to insurance companies was failing to submit all the required documentation, which is why I was denied. They offered to resubmit the claim correctly, which I agreed to. This was frustrating, in terms of the undo stress it caused in being initially denied, but I appreciated them rechecking the file after the issue with their staff was discovered. I was told the woman responsible was fired. Once the claim was accepted, my boyfriend and I met with Dr. Dick again. This is where things took a turn. He was very insistent that my bf also view the before and after pictures of the breast reductions, even though he tried to pass. That 1st pre-op visit he told me he could not have me just select a new cup size for various reasons, but that there would be no trouble keeping me at a comfortable, but smaller size. He also mentioned that the reduced size would be good, because once I could see my gut, I'd be more motivated to lose it. This was humiliating and unprofessional. He brought up my weight in a purely cosmetic and, I felt, crude way. This was particularly uncomfortable given that I was topless at the time for the examination. The next visit a few weeks later, he made the same joke. This time told me he couldn't guarantee how much of the breast tissue I'd be able to keep given the insurance guidelines. Based on that conversation I became very worried that I'd be going from a HH cup to an A or B, which is not what I wanted. He told me there was no way to tell, however, until the surgery. The Dr. also began prepping me for what to expect and how long my recovery would be. I can not stress enough how ill-prepared I was for what to expect. I have never had any surgery before in my adult life and I explained that. I told him I was nervous about the level of pain I would be in after the surgery. He told me not to worry because when I woke up, I would be drugged, numb, and perfectly comfortable in a warm air blanket. This. was. not. the. case. But more on that in a minute. The day of surgery I was not allowed to eat or drink anything after midnight. They scheduled me for a 10am appointment. This was then pushed to 11am, which I only found out when I called myself to confirm. Once I arrived, I got into the proper attire and waited.. and waited.. and waited. The surgery was a couple hours late to begin and then ran twice the amount of time we were told (3 hours instead of 1.5). I arrived for my appointment around 9am. I didn't leave the surgery center until 7pm. No food. No liquid. Not even water. In addition, when he finally showed up to prep me to go into the surgery, he took one look at me and asked me what cup size I wanted to be. That was it. Had I know this was coming, I would have given it some serious thought, instead of spending so much time preparing for the worst. I picked a cup size and he roughly hit that size (again, I never expected it to be exact). I just couldn't believe he had given me every possible answer about why that wouldn't be possible only to ask me to pick my cup size 5 minutes before I went under. Also, although there may have been a point were I was awake but don't remember it after surgery, my first conscious memory is of waking up in extreme pain. My bf and his mother (who waited all day there for me) were actually very concerned about me. I remember at some point the nurse telling me I could not have any more pain killers, and then I had to get dressed and leave (they don't do overnight stays for these surgeries, although they absolutely should have, in my opinion). My recovery took a couple weeks longer than the 3 weeks I was told. I will say anytime I had a question or concern, Dr. Dick was willing to see me. And he would fit me in between other appointments if necessary, which was helpful. This probably accounts for the complete lack of timeliness for his appointments, so I can forgive the consistent tardiness. When I went in for him to trim my stitches on 2 or 3 occasions as i healed, he was rough and unapologetic, as was his nurse (at first). At one point when I yelled a bit in pain the nurse indignantly told me this wasn't her first time. To which I reminded her it was actually, my first time having that done. She lightened up a bit after that. Overall, Dr. Dick has some of the worse bed side manner I've ever encountered. I felt I had to constantly prepare myself for him to be condescending, offensive, or both. (Side note: his initials actually spell and quot;GODand quot; which is not all subtly used on his logo.) His office staff, however, is wonderful, and helped alleviate some of the stress my follow up visits generated. That all being said, Dr. Dick admittedly is a very talented surgeon. I was told by random people I encountered preparing for and recovering from the surgery what great work he did. And I am happy with the end results, although I felt the process to getting here was much more emotionally taxing than it needed to be. Also, Dr. Dick's responsiveness to calls with questions or concerns was better than I could have hoped for. He provided me and my bf with his cell phone number which he encouraged us to use at any time, day or night, if we needed to. In the event he did not answer, he would return the call within the hour. I'm just glad I won't need to spend time with him quite as regularly anymore.

Post-op: After surgery I was in less pain than I had imagined. I had my mom(since I live by myself) stay with me the first 3 days to help out. On the 3rd day, I went back to his office so he could see me again and how I was progressing. Everything looked great. The anesthesia was lingering and I was feeling nauseous. By midnight that night, I was vomiting and had a migraine headache. I knew I was most likely severely dehydrated but called him and left a voice mail on his cell phone. He called me back immediately, in the middle of the night, and we talked for about 5 minutes on my symptoms and what I should do. I went to the ER to get fluids and by the next afternoon was doing much better. I was extremely impressed that when he said to call him on his cell phone at any time of day or night, that he answered and wanted to make sure he could help anyway he could. Day 8: Today I had an appointment, showed up 45 minutes early and they saw me immediately, since they knew I had such a long drive and the weather was bad. I apologized for calling him at midnight and he said he expected me to feel comfortable calling at anytime day or night if I had a question or concern and he was glad I had called. He said everything looks great and I agree completely. The ends of my stiches were trimmed and we talked about the changes over the next few months I'll experience since one was a tuberous breast. (honestly I can't even tell a difference between the 2 breasts, they look so good already!) I am so thrilled with the outcome and would recommend him to anyone. He was very thorough and straightforward about everything. His bedside manner is wonderful too! He did have a consult fee and the surgery was slightly higher in cost than many of the other doctors, but I honestly feel you get what you pay for. They whole experience so far as been great and I love my look already and it's only been 8 days!!

Description of Work
I must first start by saying Dr. Gregory Dick, his office manager Caroline and his other office staff are amazing! They made the whole process very easy, stress-free and accommodating. An example of this is, I have a 3-hour drive round trip when I go to his office and they work with my very difficult schedule. Plus he gives all his patients his cell phone number. Consult: The day of my consult, which I was able to get within 2 weeks of calling for one, was great. His office is very discreet and well put together. It felt like they wanted to make the whole process of plastic surgery a luxurious experience. I was the only patient there and Dr. Dick spent over an hour and a half answering all my questions. He went in very specific detail about the procedure and what he suggested would need to happen since one of my breasts was a tuberous breast. I tried on sizers, but he would not disclose the size I liked. He believes that often times people get stuck on the number and not necessarily about what looks best. He is known and prides himself on natural looking implants. I never did find out what size I went with until after the surgery. After talking with Dr. Dick I met with his office manager, Caroline, to discuss financing, cost, etc. She was amazing! I left the consultation positive I was going to go with him for my surgery, but decided to go to the other consult I had scheduled to see what the other doctor had to say, etc. Within 2 weeks of my consult with Dr. Dick, I scheduled my surgery for June 5, 2013. Pre-op: I met with Dr. Dick one more time before my surgery to discuss sizing again, any concerns etc. and to go over the pre-op instructions. The office staff and him were once again very accommodating and pleasant. I also was able to email his office manager Caroline any other questions or concerns I had. (Being a Type-A personality and a worrier, Caroline was a true blessing on easing my worries!)
