I had a revision surgery with HKB. I really enjoyed my experience with the entire staff. My surgeon, Dr. Bharti, was professional, compassionate, helpful, and an extremely talented plastic surgeon doctor. He answered all of my questions regarding my surgery and after care. My patient care coordinator, Jordan, was lovely to work with, and Kim and Stacey, my nurses were extremely helpful. All the nurses were so caring. I would choose them among many other options in North Carolina – I travelled from Raleigh for my procedure. Thank you HKB for providing excellent service!!
