I initially met Dr. Truong several years earlier wherein he created a dimple chin. I continue to get compliments from people about my chin. Although it is not genetics, I like how natural, as well as centered my dimpled chin is. As a surgeon, Dr. Truong is incredible. He is very thorough, centered, and focused during the surgical process. He has an incredible team that accompanies him during the surgical process. I always come away feeling as though Dr. Truong and his entire team listen to my concerns. As a plastic surgeon, he is patient, in tune to detail, and very kind. Recently, I went abroad and received a face-lift, cheek implants, and otoplasty from two plastic surgeons who are friends of mine. However, as I was on blood thinner shots for a congenital condition, I ran into complications, specifically hematoma on the right and left side of my neck. I decided to leave the country that I was in, and while in customs in Arizona, I contacted the office. I explained the procedures that I had, and asked that Dr. Truong follow my care, as I had left the country due to concerns. Although I had not spoken w/ he or his staff w/in 2 years, I felt that confident in reestablishing contact w/ him, and I am glad that I was able to do so. He got me into see him the following day, and I was in surgery to have the hematoma removed from my right and left side of my neck. As I was very overwhelmed due to leaving the country w/ sutures in my body, I was so comforted by Dr. Truong’s ability to explain the surgical procedure in a calm and concise manner. He surgically removed the hematoma, as well as the sutures a week later. I feel very blessed to have established a working relationship w/ him several years earlier. What I look for in a good plastic surgeon is someone who is calm and thorough. In retrospect, I regret not going to see him directly for the procedure(s) noted. However, 2 of my friends who are plastic surgeons abroad had graced me w/ what seemed like a wonderful gift. Although the gift was appreciated, you can never cut corner(s) when it comes to plastic surgery. Dr. Truong does not cut corners, and you will not be sorry you seek consultation and service from him. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Ethan Abercrombie at Ojai1963@comcast.net

Dr. Truong is amazing!! I am 25, but was bit by a dog in the face when I was five, so my lips have always been uneven and a huge source of insecurity for me. I received a Juvederm treatment for lip augmentation from Dr. Truong and couldn't be happier! I really feel the most secure about myself I've ever been. It's mind blowing what a fifteen minute procedure could do to my self esteem. Everything with Faces! has been a piece of cake, and so pleasant. The office staff is amazing - Jackie helped me through my appointments and was so fun and caring! She made me feel as though I was her new best friend! She listened, understood, joked, and made me feel comfortable and welcome. Dr. Truong is so calm and collected, yet knows exactly what he's doing. I wish he was my doctor for everything!! My experience couldn't be better! I will be going back for a permanent lip implant, and can't wait to have the pleasure of dealing with Jackie and Dr. Truong again. If you two are reading this, THANK YOU for everything. This was one of the best experiences of my life, and I regret only doing this now!

VA Central California Health Care System - U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs
Fresno, CA Veterans Hospital has a few surprises. The Good: some capable, caring doctors in spite of the institution being a "teaching hospital." Most volunteers/staff are helpful/patient. There is noticeable improvement in wait-time, the outdated adage "hurry up and wait" fast becoming outdated/unaccepted. Most areas appear clean and maintained. The Bad: specialist doctors tend to curry diligence apathetically; wait-times are often 1-2 hours long with limited access (1 day a week) to the doctor. Some hospital areas are ridiculously ill-kept--Emergency, for example, manned by some staff that seem uninterested in patients. "Lack of funding" was mentioned. Many departments, aside from Women's Primary Care, seem to feel women veterans' health concerns are frivolous and treat them as such. Opthomologists versus optometrists should be made available. Some positive changes, some negative habits, but an okay hospital if patients start demanding better.

I've been going to VAMC Fresno for 14 years, and every area of the Hospital is very professional. However they are swamped with patients and it takes to long for services.

Tips & Advices
This depends on the center. Some may allow brief visits by family members. Patients should ask about visiting rules before inviting people to stop by.
No. Patients should arrange for someone to drive them home and stay with them for 24 hours following the procedure.
This depends on the procedure. Most centers ask that patients arrive one to two  hours before the procedure begins. Following the procedure, the patient will stay at the center until fully recovered from being sedated. This may take between one and three  hours. After that, if the patient isn't experiencing abnormal pain, he or she may leave.
Different states have different rules regarding requirements for surgery centers. However, ASCs are required to be certified as a Medicare and/or Medicaid Ambulatory Surgery Center supplier before they enter into an agreement with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
The most common types of procedures conducted at surgery centers are:
  • Gastrointestinal
  • Ophthalmology
  • Orthopedics
  • Pain management
Some of the most common procedures include:
  • Cataract surgery
  • Colonoscopy
  • Pain injections
