Dr. Frederick T. Work

Board Certified Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon
I enjoy plastic surgery because it gives me the opportunity to make life changing differences in my patients’ lives. Working with each patient, discovering what their goals are, and helping them achieve those goals is the most rewarding aspect of being a surgeon.
