Dr. Chris’s reputation is well deserved. She gave me an honest opinion about my outcome. She is very encouraging and caring.

In Memory of my Grandmother – Columbus, OH


I visited other PS in the Columbus area and felt Dr. Chris and her staff had the most sensitivity and interest in meeting my needs. Other places made me feels like I was at a “Barbie factory” and everyone looked like a model. At the Sullivan Centre, the staff and other patients in the waiting area appeared friendly and fit but not overly focused on body image. There was warmth and receptiveness to my questions. Post surgery the follow up support was there for my physical needs as well as emotional ones – as I wrapped my head around a new body with smaller breasts. My scarring is healing nicely and I can’t believe how the reduction has made me so much more comfortable, especially when exercising – It is like I can actually breathe more deeply without so much weight on my chest!
