I was referred to Dr. Pousti from a long time family friend who could not say enough great things about her personal experience with him and his staff. Upon my first visit to his La Mesa office, I was warmly received by his all female staff. Although I was unprepared to answer many of the questions asked as I was just recently seriously considering surgery, his staff was very patient and understanding. I received answers to questions I never even would have thought to ask! Dr. Pousti and his staff were very honest and respectful. I was able to see and hear other patient?s experiences in person without the doctor or staff in the room to ensure my comfort. I left his office after my first visit knowing he was going to be my doctor and I booked the surgery shortly after! My next visit was for my pre-op appointment and I became very nervous during the explanation of all the pre-op/post-op instructions. However, the minute Dr. Pousti walked in the room, I was put at ease. He has a very calming presence about him and a way to ensure you that he is going to be taking very good care of you. On the day of my surgery, my pre-op nurse was sweet, bubbly, and very gentle. Dr. Pousti came to talk to me before the surgery and told me not to worry as they have done thousands and thousands of these procedures. While I felt that was reassuring enough, he then said ?but today we will be doing our best?. If I had any reservations at that point, he blew them away! He left the pre-op room asking me what kind of music I liked and said he would see me in the OR. It was time! I kissed my boyfriend and walked to the OR with his nurse. I knew there was no turning back now! I got on the table and positioned myself. There were several women working fast to prep me and the room. Dr. Pousti must have seen my eyes wide and wandering. He came to the side of the bed, held my hand in his and rubbed my shoulder with his other. He said ?I?m right here, and I?ll be here the whole time?. I felt the anesthesia enter my IV, I looked up at Dr. Pousti and he said ?turn up that country music?, I remember smiling and I was out! I woke up in the recovery room, the nurse assisted me with my clothes and got me ready to go as she instructed my sister and boyfriend on my aftercare.
All post-op visits to Dr. Pousti?s office have been amazing! The staff called me every day for two weeks after my surgery to check on me! My recovery was quick and smooth. I am overwhelmingly pleased with my results! I feel as though Dr. Pousti knew EXACTLY what I wanted without me even having to thoroughly explain myself. He is a truly gifted person and the most humble, gentile doctor I have had the pleasure of meeting. His staff is professional, fun, sweet, honest, and genuine. I have referred him to many clients and friends of mine and I would encourage anyone and everyone to consult him prior to making a final decision on any surgery! Thank you Dr. Pousti and thank you to all the fabulous women you have as your staff!
