“Dr. Durand did fantastic work on my breast augmentation. My first surgery so I was a little nervous & didn’t know exactly what to expect. The process was pretty quick and leading up to the surgery, they kept in contact. Even with the pandemic, it was seamless to adjust scheduling and the receptionists at the office were so helpful as well. Overall great experience, I’m glad I didn’t back out and I would certainly recommend Dr. D!”
