I have already recommended Dr Thimmappa to a friend of mine that also had a double mastectomy and implant surgery. She had issues with her implants and I highly recommended Dr Thimmappa to her. She has an appointment next week.


She is such a wonderful Physician. I have nothing but praise and admiration for her.


All very good..


Dr. Thimmappa was excellent!! I love having her as my plastic surgeon!!


I like & trust *Dr. Thimmappa and I have told other women and my oncologist that she took the very best care of me.


Another EXCELLENT surgical and post-op experience! I highly recommend you-- Thank you, Dr Thimmappa & staff!!!


like I said , always good


*Dr. Thimmappa was very kind to me & especially attentive to my daughter (she was with me for surgery).


Dr. Thimmappa is always very thorough in explanations. She is patient during consultation and does not make the patient feel as if she is in a rush to get to the next patient. She encourages questions be asked to enable her to clarify any concerns of the patient. Furthermore, she provided additional information for my review. Excellent provider!!!


graceful and caring md who is very concerned with patient needs. Excellent surgeon


This was my first visit with provide. Right away she made me feel @ ease & comfortable.


*Dr. Thimmappa is awesome. I have complete confidence in her and feel extremely grateful to be in her care.




Dr. T is a wonderful and thorough. She is the best! I really trust her.


Great experience from beginning to end...


I was a little nervous about the procedure but after speaking with the Physician, I'm completely confident in her and my prognosis. I'm very happy that I chose this doctor.


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


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


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.


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.


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.


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


Dr. Thommappa was wonderful. She was very thorough in her explanations to me. She takes her time and even changed my appointment time for me to accommodate scans that I needed to have completed. The staff has been great as well.


*Dr. Thimmappa is a very good doctor who listen to her patience.


She was wonderful.
