Dr. Thimmappa is an EXCELLENT physician--professional yet personable. I always look forward to my visits with her!!!

11/14/2017

Great doctor, she listens to my concerns & assures me of the right steps to take next.

11/1/2017

I came in for a cosmetic procedure that I had never experienced before. The doctor's demeanor and professionalism immediately put me at ease. I had total confidence in her ability and in the ultimate outcome of my treatment.

10/30/2017

I've already recommended Dr. Brinda and Wake Forest Plastic Surgery to all the girlfriends that have asked where I got my Botox. I really like my results.

10/29/2017

Dr. Thimmappa is excellent and I am very fortunate that I was referred to her by Dr. Wakefield. I could not have asked for better care and particularly in such a personally challenging time with my diagnosis of breast cancer. She explains the bilateral breast reconstruction process wonderfully, cognizant of the overwhelming nature of the procedure and, therefore, ensures knowledge is shared in stages. She never makes the patient feels rushed during appointments and patiently answers any questions. I had forgotten to ask a question during an appointment, emailed her in the evening and received a response 20 minutes later. Fabulous physician.

10/1/2017

Dr. Thimmappa has a wonderful bedside manner. She listens to me, answers me, listens to my husband and answers his questions.
