Dr. Mistry’s approach with patients is informative and supportive
"I bring a woman's perspective to the challenge of creating and maintaining a natural and attractive appearance. It's my job to balance what can be done with what should be done. A good patient-physician relationship is critical for a good surgical experience and outcome. Taking the time to get to know my patients, and letting them get to know me, is important. You cannot delegate building that relationship to an assistant or a videotape."
Dr Mistry has been Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery since 1996 and is a proud member of the American Society of Plastic Surgery.
Choosing a qualified surgeon to perform your plastic surgery can seem difficult, as many medical doctors perform plastic surgery procedures, yet are neither specifically trained nor certified in plastic surgery. Surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) are specifically trained to perform plastic surgery procedures. The ABPS is the only board approved by the American Board of Medical Specialties to certify medical doctors in the specialty of plastic surgery of the face and body. Many practitioners of cosmetic surgery use the term "board certified". Careful and discriminating patients are sure to ask "Board certified by which board?". A variety of "Boards" exist, some with minimal educational requirements for certification.
In order to become Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons a medical doctor must:
- Graduate from an accredited Medical School
- Complete three years or more of General Surgery residency training*
- Complete two years of Plastic Surgery residency training*
- Complete comprehensive written and oral examinations
- Recertify by written exam every 10 years
- Hold a valid medical license in the state where he/she practices
*Residency training must be done in programs accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
Only Board Certified Plastic Surgeons are invited to become members of the American Society of Plastic Surgery. The Society further requires members only to operate in accredited medical facilities, adhere to a strict code of ethics and fulfill continuing medical education requirements.
