About

Jeffrey Rockmore, MD

Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon

"I think the primary reason a patient chooses a plastic surgeon is a personal connection they develop. It's important for a patient to know that a surgeon truly hears, understands, and can fulfill his or her aesthetic vision. I strive to develop this understanding during the initial conversation, taking the time to listen to my patients' concerns and working with them to establish a plan that meets their individual needs. Hopefully, during this time, they get a sense of who I am and leave feeling confident in choosing me as their surgeon."

Why Board Certified Matters

When a doctor is “board certified,” it means that he or she has completed a rigorous round of written and oral exams. It is legal for doctors from a variety of medical fields to perform plastic surgery, however many of these surgeons have not gone through plastic surgery residency and have not qualified for certification. Choosing a board certified plastic surgeon is an assurance that they have received specific training in reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgery, have had specific skills and ability critically evaluated, and their expert approach to multiple reconstructive and cosmetic challenges is confirmed.

 

Dr. Rockmore is certified by both The American Board of Plastic Surgery and The American Board of Surgery.
