Khawaja Ali Hassan, M.D., F.A.C.S.

“When it comes to patient care, the most important thing is to always be available for the patient. Always being available to answer any questions pre or post operation.”

Dr Khawaja Ali Hassan | Cosmetic Surgeon | Woodbury NYDedication to the craft and a deep concern for the peace of mind of his patients has made Dr. Hassan one of the field’s most successful cosmetic surgeons for over 20 years. “We always maintain a high level of creativity relative to what is happening in the field at this time,” says Dr. Hassan. “You must always stay with the times to maintain creativity. If you’re not coming up with your own new procedure, you have to keep up with all the new procedures that are coming out. Going to seminars, watching the latest DVDs and videotapes…keeping abreast of what is out there.”

Being there, always, for every patient, is of vital importance to Dr. Hassan, as well as creating an overall atmosphere of comfort. “When a patient comes to the office, everyone on my staff is very friendly. Our office atmosphere is very cozy. I’m with the patient before surgery and right up until they go to sleep. When they wake up, I’m right next to them. And then, when they enter the recovery room…there’s always a nurse who interacts one on one with the patient. I’m also always there for them in person until they go home, and then I make myself available to them whenever they need me.”
