  Plastic Surgeon Cincinnati | Dr. Lawrence C. Kurtzman, M.D.  

"Giving back to my local community and the worldwide community by devoting my time, knowledge and skills to help those in need is very rewarding. This experience has taught me the value of being a good listener and respecting the opinions of others. Being a good listener is important in understanding the individual needs of patients, and makes it easier to share with patients the many plastic surgery options available to them. I believe in giving patients as much information as possible so that they can make the right decisions about expectations and results. I would consider it a privilege to work with you and help you reach your appearance goals."

- Dr. Lawrence C. Kurtzman
