To the OR with Dr. Abello, Orthopedics


Going to the OR today with Dr.  Sergio Abello, the Foot and Ankle surgeon I mentioned previously. He has six cases today, so it will be a full day. It’s several different procedures, so it should be pretty interesting – and a change from what I’ve been seeing for the last few weeks..

Met with Dr. Alfredo Hoyos, Plastic Surgeon yesterday – despite his over-the-top website, he seemed pretty down to earth. I’ll be going to the operating room with him at the Santa Barbara Surgical Center on Thursday. He’s actually a pretty interesting guy, and I am really interested in seeing the sculpting liposuction.

Tried to chase down Dr. Camilo Prieto and Dr. Alan Gonzalez yesterday. I heard Dr. Gonzalez is getting married this weekend – so I’ll give him a bit of a pass – I’m guessing his life is probably pretty hectic right now, (so we’ll come back to him later).

Stopped in at Dr. Prieto’s office, hoping to catch him, since my messages haven’t gotten a response – and got stuck leaving another message, but we’ll see if we get any response. I hate to give up – he’s one of the most popular plastic surgeons down here, and well advertised on the internet – so I think he should definitely be included.. But I can’t make people talk to me, so if I don’t get a response this time, I may have to reconsider.

Haven’t gotten anything booked for Saturday, but I am still working on it – I hate to miss any day when the ORs are running..

I apologize to all the great doctors who gave me their time and effort – but didn’t make it on the web page (don’t worry, they will be in the book!)
