I had 3 procedures (muscle repair, tummy tuck and lipo) done by Dr. Vivek Bansal recently and I had a really great experience both with Dr. Bansal himself and his entire staff at Elite MD Spa.
My initial visit was a free consultation to ask about a lot of different procedures — I had a lot of questions and was unsure what I should do for me. Dr. Bansal took his time with me during my visit. He went over all of my questions and discussed what he felt would be best for me. I had all these ideas to do a lot of of work and he recommended only what was necessary (fixing my tummy after having kids). He didn’t rush me, he didn’t talk me into anything. By this point I had spoken to a few doctors and he was actually the first to only recommend what I should get — and encouraged me to workout afterwards and sculpt the rest of my body through diet and exercise.
I went home and thought it over about what I should do, when, etc. After some weeks of thinking, I called again for some more questions and decided to go for it. They kept in close contact with me up until my surgery. One week before my procedures, I was scared and in panic mode. They have a patient care coordinator named Candy — she’s super friendly, very informative and smart and totally put me at ease. I didn’t even tell her I was scared — she could see I was and was very sweet to me. For me, that was exactly what I needed.
The day of surgery came – I checked into the surgery center and Dr. Bansal was there shortly after to greet me after I was checked in and all of the prepping was underway. Just seeing him and having him talk to me made me feel better — because by that point, I was a big bundle of nerves! As always, he went over exactly what was going to happen that day, what to expect, etc.
Now, weeks after my procedure, I could not be happier with the results. Dr. Bansal and his staff was very informative of the procedures, what to expect beforehand, afterwards and all of the quirks that come with it including some potential side-effects. Everything I have felt post-op was completely expected — nothing feels weird, everything looks great and I couldn’t be happier with my results.
I have read some of the other posts here and am sorry they had bad experiences here with this doctor. Basically, I was happy with my doctor, I love the aftercare with this office – they always have made time for me and I appreciate when Dr. Bansal discouraged me from a procedure I didn’t need. To me, that is a sign of a good doctor when he opts for good old fashioned diet and exercise rather than encouraging me to do a procedure so he can make a quick buck.
