Dr. Lori L. Cherup's Ratings
Hi Everyone on the Radiance Team. I had my procedure this past summer. I haven't been able to figure out how to write a proper review and that has been bothering me because I want everyone to know how awesome all of you are. My experience could not have been better beginning with the warm welcome I received from the receptionist. During my first consult and all my meeting with Cherub I was treated with patience and understanding, Dr Cherup explained to me, with total confidence, the procedures to be done. Dr Cherups' vast knowledge made me felt completely comfortable. The nurses, the OR staff and the recovery staff could not have been more compassionate. They made me feel like an old friend and made me laugh when they told me funny stories about how they used to fear plastic surgery as well. I want to formally thank Dr Cherup and her team at Radiance Plastic Surgery.
I am 47 years old and I had a breast augmentation seven years ago in Utah and I have never been happy with the results.. The left implant had always been bigger and it had always stayed high up on my chest and my implants had 480 cc of saline, they were to big for my body. So when my right implant deflated, I found Dr. Cherup, I was very scared to have this procedure done again since the first time was so painful and was worried about how they would look, I wanted both sides to look the same. Dr. Cherup reassured me that everything will be ok and I won't have the experience I had the first time. She explained to me what we needed to do and spent a lot of time with me and made me feel good about going forward with the procedure. Dr. Cherup took out both old implants and we agreed on smaller implants that would give me a more youthful appearance. She replaced both sides with 320 cc of saline and also performed a lift to remove some skin. I am now at one month after my surgery and very pleased and delighted with the results. Dr. Cherup is amazing, and her staff are wonderful.
My mother is battling a disease that scars and mars her, not only physically but psychologically. The stress and the uncertainty of her future weighs on her every day. Should not a disease sufferer walk into a physician's office and feel BETTER? Should not a woman speak to another with compassion and understanding, even outside of the medical sector? Instead, this physician was brash and offensive in addition to refusing her treatment. As a medical student, I understand there are many times when a physician must refuse- and typically, those refusals would be accompanied by sympathy and apology. Instead, my mother was essentially told her previous surgeon had done a horrible job- mind you, this surgery was on her FACE. Now, as a plastic surgeon, one could assume that she understands body insecurity. What on God's green earth could compel you to tell a sick woman that her face looks awful??? As a result of treating her illness??? Additionally, my mother left feeling very much like Dr. Cherup would not take her case because it was not cosmetic, and subsequently, she would see significantly less money. This deduction was made in one visit and made by an honest, perceptive woman with NO medical background. If one can perceive this business-like attitude, but it is not the case that she is greedy, it is my guess that she needs a significant attitude adjustment so her patients don't walk away feeling both offended and robbed.
As I write this, I'm imagining the snarky, back-handed response I will receive on this page, much as others complainants have (on other review sites). My simple response will be: First, DO NO HARM. Not physically, not psychologically, not emotionally. I am ever-so familiar with unruly and unrealistic patients. I am fully aware that doctors are not deities and cannot perform wonders. However, the one thing you CAN control as a physician is how you treat your patient at the bedside.
Saying "I'm surprised you're not dead!" provides a whole different experience than "You must be one tough cookie to have endured all of this and show up to my office with a smile!" or "What incredible perseverance, you really are something!" or "Girl, you must have an influential angel up there! You're just amazing!"
I can only hope that she soon remembers why she became a physician- to help, to inspire hope, and to heal. Though I do not wish it, perhaps one day, someone she loves will fall terribly ill and she will understand how much love and compassion they and their family require to get by.
I have absolutely no complaints regarding my recent surgery. The facility was clean and updated. The nurses were fantastic. My pre-op nurse took her time and explained everything she was doing. She made sure that I was comfortable and didnt need anything up until I went into the operating room. My post-op nurse was also amazinb. She made sure that my pain was controlled and she demenstrated the after care instructions until my family and I thoroughly understood what needed done. She cm made sure tgst we ere comfortable doing these tasks and we didn't have any questions. The day after surgery the nurses called to see how I was doing and make sure everything was ok. As for dr. Cherup, I have never in my life received better care from a doctor or her staff. Before the surgery, everything that was going to be done was explained to me so I knew exactly what to expect. Dr. Cherup called me the night of surgery to make sure everything was going well, and she called me the following day. I highly recommend dr. Cherup to anyone that may need her services.
Very displeased with the effects of her breast augmentation work. Went to her when I was 18 do get augmentation surgery. Now one breast is bigger than the other. She has a horrible demeanor as well. WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND HER! WILL NEVER ASK HER TO FIX WHAT SHE ALREADY DID BECAUSE I BET She would screw it up even more. Go to another plastic surgeon!
I WOULD NOT recommend going to Dr. Cherup for any surgery - even though I have only had one type of surgery from her, TWICE. --- Breast Augmentation? --- Not only do you feel extremely RUSHED during appt. My anxiousness and her "reassurance of perfection" screwed me over in the end because I wanted to get the surgery done ASAP. Not only was the wrong implant size put in of which I was told she thought the smaller looked better while I was under anesthesia, she realized I got upset and later stated it was because "it wouldn't fit" which is BS because she was so negative about having all this tissue and extra skin but yet she recommend a big implant and I even went smaller than what she told me to get.. But it couldn't fit? BS! Then I got a lift which was done incorrectly because she had stated she put the implant up higher which basically ruined the left. After spending around $8,000 cash I had to get surgery again 3 months later which cost me another $1,250! Did not fix my problem!!!!
Dr Cherup corrected a surgery previously done by dr hurwitz. She treated me with respect, was kind and confident she could help me. I continue to have regular follow up visits and am so pleased. Dr Cherup remembers me every visit, reviews the tx plan and progress. Takes time to discuss my concerns and and stands behind her work! Couldn't be happier. The staff members are all kind and knowledeable. I highly recommend her as a surgeon.
