All the people who work with Dr. Ragagopal are always so friendly and make me feel comfortable. Thank you! I've had plenty of very pleasant experiences at the office, and the doctor is great.
I would have liked a little more communication around my Ultherapy. For some reason I did not know, for instance, that it would be an hour while the facial numbing set in, and then another hour while I spoke with the nurse about some of my concerns and we waited while I took an Ativan. By this time the painkillers I took beforehand at home had worn off. The paperwork and consent form I filled out upon arrival should have been looked at and my questions addressed BEFORE proceeding with the facial numbing and the long wait -- this way we could have saved an hour. And I would have liked to know beforehand that as an immunosuppressed person I might not see much result from the procedure (which I went ahead with anyway, having come that far).
Aside from that, Ultherapy went fine despite the discomfort. They are honest about the level of pain you'll experience, and that I appreciate. Nurse Gaya was gentle and patient -- she did a great job.
