What to expect at the practice of Dr. Harry Marshak
Welcome to the practice of Harry Marshak, M.D., a board-certified plastic surgeon, whose office is located at 421 N. Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, California.

Your personal consultation is an opportunity for us to share information about the plastic surgery you're considering. As far as I'm concerned, you have as much to tell me as I have to tell you.

Start thinking about the questions you have on the procedures you're considering. I recommend writing your questions down and bringing them with you to your consultation.

Some patients come in with a friend. If there's someone you feel comfortable coming into the consultation with you, a husband, mother, girlfriend or whatever, you should bring him or her. Sometimes a confidant will ask questions you might forget to ask.

What are your goals for plastic surgery?
You and I will sit down and chat for whatever length of time we need to go over theory, what you're looking for, what's bothering you, what you expect from plastic surgery. I'll take a complete medical history before we start talking about any plastic surgery procedures. I need to know your story.

How does the
procedure work?
Next, I will go over the technical aspects of the procedure you're interested in. I'm a firm believer in educating my patients. You should understand what you're getting into.
Which procedure would work best?
Dr Harry Marshak, F.A.C.S.
Sometimes the procedure you have in mind may not be the one I think will produce the look you want, and I need to offer alternatives. For example, if you come in wanting liposuction, I might say, "What you really need to get the results you want is a tummy tuck." Or if you want your upper eyelids done, I might say, "I can see we should consider doing a brow lift." As you may already know, the choice of the plastic surgeon is the most important step to achieving the excellent results you want for your appearance. Tremendous amounts of work, time and study are necessary for a plastic surgeon to develop the skills in the care you receive. It requires a total of about 11 years of highly specialized training after college to meet the many requirements for board certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Moreover, above and beyond the qualifications and advanced degrees, you must find someone with whom you can easily communicate so that trust, comfort and the utmost confidence are maintained.
About Plastic Surgery
Dr Harry Marshak, F.A.C.S.
Plastic surgery is partially the art and science of restoring the form and function to people, to make them whole again after traumas like anomalies of birth, burns, accidents or cancer. The other part of the profession is also dedicated to changing body parts that function well enough but lack an aesthetic or pleasing appearance. When that appearance is surgically rejuvenated, it leads to an improved self-image and more confidence for the patient.
Office Staff and Appointments
Our staff is here to serve you, make you as comfortable as possible and answer all your questions.

By keeping in close touch with Dr. Marshak, emergencies can almost always be avoided. A qualified physician is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year long by calling our regular office telephone. If your medical problem is an extreme emergency, call 911 or go immediately to the nearest hospital emergency room.
Telephone Calls, Office Visits and Prescriptions
Dr Harry Marshak, F.A.C.S.
Other than emergencies, routine calls are answered by our nurses. That allows the doctor to spend uninterrupted time with the patients who have scheduled appointments. Moreover, it is generally not possible to perform a consultation or make a diagnosis over the telephone and is certainly not possible to examine a patient or practice the best medicine over the telephone.
Dr. Marshak is on staff at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center (the main hospital I use) in Los Angeles, Coast Plaza Doctor's Hospital in Norwalk, Mission Community Hospital in Panorama City, and TriCity Regional Medical Center in Hawaiian Gardens.
