How likely are you to recommend Dr. Machado?

(Select your rating)
I am so thankful that I went with Dr. Machado as my surgeon. She has been there for me the entire journey I have taken. Three years after my surgery and she is still there for me as she is all of her patients. The aftercare she gives with her program is a lifelong program not just a few months after. She is as invested in your success as you will be. I see others have said she is rude but that is a personal opinion on their part. She wont sugar coat things and watch you fail, she is going to be honest with you and tell you how it is and stand there supporting you in your success. I will take her and her style over other surgeons who don't give the level of care or have the interest in the quality of the product we use. She gave me a chance at a life I have counted out and my primary physician told me I wouldn't have.
