Our plastic surgery center was founded in 2015 by our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Z, and has been growing at a rapid pace ever since. Over the past three years, Dr. Z has personally met with all of our patients at their initial consultation and guided them along their entire plastic surgery journey. However, as our practice began to grow and Dr. Z’s schedule began to fill up (sometimes his consultation schedule can be scheduled 2-3 weeks out), we realized we had to offer our patients another option to get achieve their dream results without having to wait.
Another Consultation Option: Frances Leonardo
Queue our lovely Patient Care Coordinator and Surgical Tech, Frances Leonardo, opening her schedule to start accepting new patients alongside Dr. Z! Our surgeon still accepts consultations for those that feel strongly about meeting their surgeon at the first consult, but Frances is able to accommodate patients that need to get in sooner and feel comfortable meeting Dr. Z at pre-op.
So, who is Frances Leonardo and why did our plastic surgeon feel she was qualified enough to start handling our patients during their initial consult? That’s easy – learn a bit more about Frances and the perks of booking with her:
About Our Patient Care Coordinator/Surgical Tech
Our bilingual Patient Care Coordinator & Surgical Tech plays an integral role in each of our patient's journey at HZ Plastic Surgery. Not only can she perform consultations by providing helpful information and care, but she also provides Dr. Z with the necessary assistance in the operating room. Frances is truly adored by our patients and strongly believes in providing a comfortable experience from start to finish.
Perks of Booking A Consultation With Frances Leonardo:
You can book your consultation with Frances and visit our office as soon as tomorrow (Dr. Z is typically booked 2-3 weeks out due to his demanding schedule).
She’s worked alongside plastic surgeons for years gaining the necessary experience to perform in-depth consults.
Frances is also Dr. Z’s surgical tech - she assists with all of our surgical procedures in the operating room. Any questions you would ask our plastic surgeon, Frances is easily able to answer as she is assisting with surgery every step of the way.
