    Eshima, Dr. Issa

    I am a sixty-two year old woman who as recently as four years ago never thought would have a face-lift. People have always said I looked ten years younger than I actually was. Then, over the past three years I started to develop the telltale signs of aging: jowls and a crinkly- skinned neck. Though my skin laxity was mild compared to others my age and my husband continued to think I was beautiful it really bothered me. When I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror, I saw a dour looking woman even though I felt happy on the inside. I had become very self-conscious wearing turtle-neck sweaters which seemed to accentuate the loose skin around my lower face and neck. I began to think I just might have plastic surgery to correct what I didn���t like seeing. So began my thoughtful approach to finding a plastic surgeon I could entrust my face to. For me, the doctor I would choose would have to be a seasoned surgeon with impeccable credentials, a highly ethical practitioner whose surgical results I found beautiful on someone I knew and in the before and after photographs of other patients. Moreover, the reviews of past patients would have to be excellent. My search led me to the office of Dr. Issa Eshima.

    It has now been four months since my surgery. I feel fortunate to have had Dr. Eshima as my plastic surgeon. He blends the highest level of surgical skill with an artistic eye to restore beauty and balance to a face and neck that had sagged with advancing age. Dr. Eshima, I feel, is conservative in his approach. He listened attentively to my concerns and he discussed viable surgical and non-surgical options. He did bring my attention to a feature that was out of esthetic balance and which I was unaware of. When I came to Dr. Eshima I was fixated on my sagging jowls and neck. I thought my eyes looked a little dull, but I never considered that plastic surgery could brighten their look. Thankfully, Dr. Eshima brought to my attention that one eyebrow was lower than the other and that by raising that one to match the height of the other and removing the excess skin on my eyelids he could achieve a more open and brighter look for my eyes. Due to my inherent trust of Dr. Eshima I agreed to have these procedures done and I couldn���t be happier with the results. On the other hand, I thought my skin could benefit from a chemical peel and Dr. Eshima didn���t concur. He doesn���t do procedures which won���t in his estimation enhance one���s beauty. I respect him for his honesty and high ethical standards. Dr. Eshima is tops in enhancing one���s beauty while achieving very natural results. I look like myself but with brighter looking eyes and a jaw line and neck that look twenty years younger.

    What I have found interesting are the responses of friends and acquaintances. One month after my surgery people I ran into were commenting on how beautiful my skin looked. Two months after my surgery a friend who I hadn���t seen in months and who didn���t know that I had a face-lift looked at me and said, ��� you look great���. She is an artist and actress with a keen eye for beauty. The most poignant response was by a very close friend whose eyes teared and said ���you look so beautiful, like you did twenty years ago���. I think the most humorous response is by another friend who is an artist and photographer who thinks the change he sees in me is from a change in make-up. He said I look so much more beautiful with softer colors. The response that has surprised me the most is that people outside of my close circle of friends seem more open and friendly. I can only attribute this to the renewed kinder expression on my face which really matches who I am on the inside.

    I could go on and on about Dr. Eshima���s lovely office and caring office staff, his loving and skilled post-surgical nurses, and excellent anesthesiologist who I felt was top-notch, but I���ll let those of you who find your way to Dr. Eshima���s office discover this on your own.

    I just want to thank Dr. Eshima for a more beautiful me. I have only tears of gratitude for you.

    Kushnir, Dr. Nataliya
    She is great. She listens to you. She takes you to those who really listen. She goes all your problems one by one. She really looks hard for what the problem is and solutions to your problems. She is taking care of my allergies. Availability is absolutely fantastic. Office is wonderful.

    Wells, Dr. Stephen R
    Office staff is really wonderful, very nice facilities. Dr. Wells is thorough, explains procedures well and is very kind. He is very busy so getting an appointment can take a while (non-emergency), but you can easily get in to see one of the para-professionals. Short wait time.

    We like it. It is easy to make appointments. We can get an appointment the next day if we need it. They are inexpensive. It is a big company and they have a lot of services. Everything that we need is available and it is local.

    Blackhawk Medical Group
    Plan ahead if this is your first visit for a physical  It's getting very difficult to find good primary care physicians.  Needed to get in quickly so I saw a P.A.  I know it's a tough job, and I was in a bit of a panic but I think the P.A. was trying to assure me
    my problem was not serious, and it came across condescending.  Besides that, very happy with this office.

    Mount Diablo Podiatry
    Dr. Shea is a very good doctor. However, his assistants do much of the preparation and post-operational work and don't do a great job. They don't listen, aren't friendly, and aren't very knowledgeable. Once, his assistants caused a blister by the way they bandaged my foot. On a second appointment, I had to push for no latex and explain to them that I was allergic. However, they used latex anyway. They did remove the latex bandage, but had I not notice, they would have left it. The office is also worn and out-of-date. I will never go to Dr. Shea because of his assistants. Again, I am not dissatisfied with Dr. Shea but with his assistants.

    Wharton, Dr. Kurt R
    The surgery went as expected, but I developed a common complication in the weeks that followed. While I was anxious and ready for him to “fix” the issue, he calmly assured me that I would heal naturally-which I did. The fact that a surgeon was willing to wait and see me almost daily-including weekends (for no charge) spoke volumes about his dedication to the health and wellbeing of his patients.   I am very happy with Dr. Wharton, the result of my surgery. His office staff was friendly and attentive, and I highly recommend him.

    Linfoot, Dr. Peter A
    He is fabulous and has a great office. He is a general practitioner doctor and he also specializes in endocrine disease and diabetes and that is why I am going to him. He is an MD PhD, so he is very smart and up-to-date on everything. He has a very advanced office and it is computerized. He has patients records all computerized for all 9 yard and it is classic. The people are very warm and friendly. I never had a problem getting an appointment with him, but the first time I had to wait about 6 weeks to get an appointment. I have never had a long wait when I went in for my appointment, if it was morning or afternoon. He is wonderful and he really is.

    Wharton, Dr. Kurt R
    I first met him in the emergency room when I had treatments for an emergency procedure. He is a great surgeon who has a very good bedside manner. I switched to him as my chief gynecologist after that experience. His staff is fantastic as well. His nurses and office staff are very friendly and very thorough. They are a pleasure to work with. The facilities are great. The office is really nice and up to date.

    Gary, Dr. E Pat
    She is a wonderful doctor. I was referred to her by another doctor. She is so down-home in her approach. She is very detailed in whatever happens to be the problem. The whole office makes me feel very warm and taken care of.
