We're committed to unrivaled customer service, outstanding surgical results, and a deep passion for helping patients feel more beautiful. We are a unique, young, all female practice with engaging ideas about the role of culture in life and business.
Our practice is deliberately built around five cultural principles — transparency, flat hive-management, service, consensus, and performance.
Slackers don't last long in our practice, nor do people who aren't comfortable with accountability, flexibility, self-improvement, teamwork, and a little whittling away of the ego. As a group, we're committed to striving for 100% patient satisfaction 100% of the time.
We feel that positivity improves productivity and satisfaction in the workplace, which increases well being and reduces stress in all environments. Community is important to us. We care for each other in our family here, and the result is that our group is more than just a collection of individuals.
