In turn, perhaps the most important decision you will ever make as a patient is who to trust with your procedure.

My number one rule is "to look for a doctor that I need, more than a doctor who will need me". This is the reason I chose and now highly recommend Dr. Eric. Even if you are still in the process of deciding, at least try to contact him. I've read and researched hundreds o articles and reviews about fat transfer, rhino and breast augmentation. I made inquiries and talked to most doctors here in WhatClinic & only Dr Eric understand my needs as a patient. He was always an email or text away since day 1 that we chatted about my goals up until I have decided to go through the procedure. I'm now 1 month after operation. Literally until now he never left any of my text/enquiries unanswered. Unlike most doctors who just leave their patient queries and post operation care to a nurse, (I know this because I had rhino done and the experience was horrible) - that's why I had to have it revised by Dr Eric who is always hands on and even took his time cleaning my stitches. He was always honest, professional and comfortable to do deal with. He would tell me the things that can be done, the limitations and he would provide options/suggestions. He never sugarcoats just to make money. Just real business and care for the patient, no bullshit and I am massively satisfied with the results - all look natural as if I didn't have plastic surgery. He's done all 3 procedures right at the first time - quality at a lower cost.
I had all 3 procedures done in just 1 day.I went home right away after waking up in the recovery room. No bleeding, no bruising just slight pain and swelling. After 6 days im able to go back to work and nobody ever noticed I had surgery. I have more great things to say about my experience, the list goes on and on but there is no more space here.

I been thinking for many years to have my breasts done. Just like many Asians, I am not gifted with a big ones. Until my husband and I decided to have it done. The big question is who and where. Since Phils is my home country and I know how good doctors are in the Philippines, we decided to go for the doctors who are well know to the celebrities. we started emailing with the help of my husband. we emailed a lot and it was only Dr. Eric who gave us a very quick but detailed information. we went over to his website and read the testimonies. we exchanged emails about our inquiries, and we finally decided to travel just for the breast Augmentation and scar revision. a week prior to the surgery, he gave me all the instructions what needs to be done, what not to eat and stuff like that to prepare for the surgery. The following day after our arrival, I had all my pre op labs and since it was all ok, we proceed to the surgery on that same day.
I had a very nice experience with Dr. Eric and even my husband was very pleased on how he assisted and handled me. He's very hands on to his patients and explain every detail that you need to know, even his anaesthesiologist was very detailed in explaining the things to be expected after surgery and they all made me calm inside the OR with all their jokes and soft music.
After the surgery, I experienced discomfort, which is expected but just for a day. The following afternoon after surgery, I managed to walked around the mall for early ambulation. I had a wonderful and satisfied experience with Dr. Eric and I'm planning to have my nose done next year if God's willing.
I would totally recommend him...Two Thumbs up Doc Eric!!!
