San Diego Plastic Surgeon Employs "Passion 4 Performance" Approach

November 8, 2012 - SAN DIEGO, CA

Dr. Scott R. Miller, a board-certified San Diego plastic surgeon, operates his practice with a patient-focused philosophy. To emphasize this patient first prioritization, Dr. Miller has developed a 4-step methodology he terms the "Passion 4 Performance" (P4P) approach. With the number of practicing surgeons rising alongside increased patient demands, patients have more choice than ever in selecting a plastic surgeon. Dr. Miller, who first and foremost believes patients should choose a board-certified surgeon, uses his P4P approach to ensure his patients know their individual needs and safety are his top priorities.

The P4P approach, which recently received acclaim in an issue of San Diego's Fine Magazine, is broken down into four benchmarks for success:

  • Quality - give attention to the subtle details in revitalizing the patient's appearance
  • Integrity - perform in alignment with the agreed upon patient/surgeon goals, standards and values
  • Safety - prioritize patient's health and well-being as most important aspects of care
  • Service - deliver care for whole patient, including physical and emotional well-being

At his practice for San Diego plastic surgery, Dr. Miller believes that communication between patient and surgeon is essential to a successful procedure. Consultations should be utilized not only as a tool to educate prospective patients, but to discuss with patients their health history, surgical goals, and how, together, they can develop a plan that addresses the patients expectations. In addition, Dr. Miller discusses post-operative care with his patients in order to provide realistic ideas in regard to results and recovery time.

With his patient-centric P4P approach, Dr. Miller offers his patients honest and open communication designed to yield customized care. He says he recognizes that choosing a plastic surgeon is vital to the success of any surgery, and he urges people who are considering plastic surgery to spend time searching for the right surgeon, whether they are considering a nonsurgical procedure such as BOTOX® injections, or a more invasive procedure like breast augmentation, liposuction or a facelift.
