Plastic Surgery Staff The Woodlands
Melissa Flory, Practice Manager
Melissa oversees the daily operations of the practice, and continues to find ways to implement the most efficient and effective way to run the office so that every process, from scheduling a consultation, to surgery and recovery, goes smoothly. She began her medical career over 11 years ago working in the medical center at Baylor College of Medicine. Since then, she has worked in Labor & Delivery, Med/Surg and in the Emergency Room at two large hospitals in The Woodlands area. Having seen how a body can be damaged due to pregnancy, weight gain/loss, breast cancer, as well as other circumstances, she feels very passionate about Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery. In addition, Melissa brings an energetic, positive personality to Gill Plastic Surgery.
“Every day brings new experiences, from forming a special bond with a breast cancer patient, putting their concerns at ease, to watching the transformation of a cosmetic surgery patient. We have a great team environment here.”
“Dr. Gill is the most compassionate, dedicated, and hard-working physician that anyone could hope for. His time spent with patients explaining things to them in terms that they can understand, and his diligent and extraordinary care of his pre and post-op patients is exemplary.”
Michele Kline, Patient Care Coordinator
Our new patients appreciate Michele’s patience and expertise during their consultations. She is always willing to answer any question and assists Dr. Gill in every step of the patient’s consultation and pre-operative journey. Michele offers over 5 years of experience in the dermatology and the skin care industry. Her unique approach to skin care helps patients take the guess work out of their skin care regimen. Michele develops a personalized long-term skin care plan for each of her patients to help them reveal their skin’s beauty potential. During a new patient’s consultation here at Gill Plastic Surgery, Michele puts any patient’s concern at ease, whether it be working with their schedule to book their surgery, answering their questions regarding financial planning, going over in detail their surgery/procedure quotes, hospital stay, or preparing breast reconstruction patients for their stages of recovery. She thoroughly enjoys working with each of her patients to help them achieve their aesthetic and pre-operative goals.
“At Gill Plastic Surgery, we strive to give each patient the ultimate experience and finest results. Dr. Gill cares deeply for each patient and makes it a priority to spend face to face time with his patients every step of the way. Our team values each individual’s experience as our own, as we aspire to meet their expectations and answer all of their questions. It’s such a joy to meet our patients and get to know them over the course of their journeys. In my personal experience I have come to appreciate how one’s outward appearance can impact their quality of life, and I understand how important it is to correct and restore oneself after unexpected changes in life have occurred.”
