Surgery reviews in Torrance

    The surgery itself seemed to go well. It's right in the middle of my back. Usually they cut out an oval shaped wedge (more skin than necessary) and stitch the edges.  

    Dr McKissock had a better technique that removed only the exact amount of skin necessary; it leaves a 'question mark' type scar (tough to explain in text).  

    Dr McKissock was very informative, answered all of my questions (even a few unrelated to the surgery), and was a genuine pleasure to work with.  

    The sample was biopsied and they got it all!  

    I would highly recommend him for any other such surgery. I haven't had any actual plastic surgery (other than this skin removal) but he seemed very knowledgeable and I would recommend him for this too.

  • She is an excellent doctor. She is a caring, sensitive, very communicative surgeon. She is extraordinarily smart. She knows the latest practices and processes. She is brilliant and patient oriented. She understands what you are going through. She is an extremely competent, professional surgeon.

  • We were referred to the South Bay Surgeons by my son's primary physician who had very good dealings with two of their surgeons in the past. The first doctor my son saw explained that he felt the bump on his back was benign but should be removed. An appointment was set up for, what we thought, was the removal, but we discovered when we arrived that a new doctor was assigned to my son's case who spent less than 5 minutes with my son to say it should be removed. I objected to being charged for a consultation when another doctor had established that the procedure could have been done that day, and all this doctor did was look and say it should be removed. They would not send information to my son's primary physician until his office made repeated phone requests, including the doctor himself calling. The appointment for the removal was delayed because they told me they had to get my insurance company's approval to use a surgery center instead of a hospital, which they claim they had gotten. Turns out, my insurance did not consider the surgery center a preferred provider, and I was left with 94% responsibility for the surgery center bill where we would have been covered if the hospital was used. I wouldn't trust their estimates and would suggest verifying with insurance companies before getting any services from them. My complaints to their billing department were met with non-compassion and an attitude that they are right and the customer needs to deal with it. I will never allow my family to use their services again.
