I actually felt comfortable as I was pulling in to the parking lot of Dr. Tjelmeland's practice! The staff was all very friendly and outgoing in person and on the phone. I did not have to wait very long at all until the doctor and Cindy came in to discuss my particular wants/needs. He explained everything in a way that didn't seem foreign like some drs can do. He was great at answering any ??s I had w/o making me feel dumb for asking them. And u know he gets those same dang questions alllll the time. So it was nice that he took the time to make sure I understood what his opinion was and if I agreed. He took all kinds of measurements that neither of the other two drs I had consulted with did AND he told me the GREAT news that I only needed a mini TT unlike one of the others that said I needed all kinds of stuff done!! I left the consultation knowing that this guy was going to change my life. I went home and spoke with my husband... He had accompanied me to two other consults but was out of town this time. I told him that I had "found my surgeon" and I scheduled i think it was 4-5 weeks out. I couldn't believe it!! Cindy was awesome at informing me of what was going to happen the morning of surgery and what to do the night before all the things I needed. The nurse that walked me back was sooo sweet and had me laughing and comfortable right off the bat. The anesthesiologist (Dr. Malone) was the best anesthesiologist I have ever had (he was my 4th) and really helped me out post surgery when the pain meds weren't working bc of my pain condition. It's been about 6 weeks and I am scheduled to go in on Monday to see where I stand I recovery. All I can say is that I feel beautiful and I live the results so far! I cannot wait to see what it looks like in a year from now. I will definitely be spreading his name around!! And if I have the urge to get anything else nipped and tucked... Dr Tjemeland is the man I want in the OR!!
As a woman in her early 50's I wanted a fresher look and sleeker body. I did a lot of research and decided to have my procedures performed by Dr Tjemeland. As an RN and the wife of a physician I am very picky and have an inside track as to who is really good and who to stay away from. I have had liposuction, tummy tuck, micro laser, and will be having my old implants removed this month to down size a bit as well as a bit of liposuction to the lateral chest. I have never had anything other than excellent care and excellent results. I am so thankful for Dr Tjemeland and his staff.
Getting older is hard! I have never had anything but a great experience at Meridian Plastic Surgery Center. I have been a patient twice tummy and breasts) as well as sent a few friends for consultations and surgery. The office staff is professional, educated and just plain fun to talk and visit with. The office is quiet, private and very comfortable. The surgery area was clean and I never felt hurried or rushed. Dr. Tjelmeland was professional and very knowledgeable and he made me feel very comfortable. He answered all my questions. I had an opportunity to see another well known doctor in town, but the staff and professionalism just didn't match what I experienced at this office/surgery center. It was also very cool that the office and surgery center part were together in the same building so Dr. Tjelmeland was easily available. I will and have recommended this doctor and facility to all my family and friends.
I had consults with four plastic surgeons in Austin before having a facelift. I chose Dr. Parker after talking with his former surgical nurse who highly recommended him. I am extremely pleased with the results. Dr. Parker is a gifted surgeon who happens to be a perfectionist.
