Meet Our Medical Staff
Discover the Palm Desert-Based Cosmetic Surgery Institute, Serving the Los Angeles Area
The medical staff at our cosmetic plastic surgery practice in Palm Desert—serving Rancho Mirage, Indian Wells, La Quinta, and the Los Angeles area beyond—is part of the foundation of our success at Cosmetic Surgery Institute. Each and every one of these healthcare professionals has been an industry leader in her own right. Through circumstance, timing, and good fortune, CSI has been able to attract this talented group of professionals and offer our patients the highest quality of care and compassion.
It is important for us to create an environment in which our patients feel comfortable with their provider, so they can confidently express their cosmetic goals and be sure they are being heard—and that a personalized plan is being developed just for them. We encourage everyone to get to know our hard-working and talented medical staff by reading about them here or contacting us for more information.
