What’s In A Name?
Over twenty five years ago I left the Mayo Clinic to join Dr. Dempsey in Tucson. At that time, the practice was known as The Plastic Surgery Institute of Southern Arizona. Just over a year after I joined the practice, Dr. Dempsey was tragically killed in an airplane accident.
After the loss of Dr. Dempsey, it seemed silly to have an “Institute” of just one person, myself. This was a time of tremendous growth and evolution for our practice, and part of the change revolved around what we would call ourselves. We continued to ask each other, “What makes people come to us?” and “What do our patients expect from us?” Ultimately, it came down to patients wanting us to be as perfect as we can be. Although it might outwardly appear arrogant, it was not meant to be, and the name Perfection Plastic Surgery came to be.
