Dr. Reitter discusses his Sono Bello fellowship

David R. Reitter, M.D.
Dr. Reitter is a board-certified general surgeon with 21 years of surgery and endoscopy experience. He recently completed the Sono Bello Aesthetic Fellowship in 2021. He feels the opportunity was the right move to reinvigorate his career.

“After working to serve the healthcare needs of the communities I have lived and worked in, I found the multiple administrative roadblocks and hurdles of the insurance and government-based system to be stifling and suffocating to what I needed to feel like I was still “making a difference”.

"I was burning out and knew that I needed a change to bring energy and joy back into my career. I began to look at options and found Sono Bello with their strong company track record and vision for growth to be very refreshing. Having finished this very rigorous fellowship with one of the most tenured surgeons in the company, I feel renewed vigor in my career. Fostering new skills and techniques is part of what we do as surgeons and this experience has given me a new lease on my career. One on one patient experiences, helping clients to achieve their best self physically and emotionally, is a career I find very rewarding.”

Dr. Plaskon is a board-certified general surgeon with 20 years of experience. He recently completed the Sono Bello Aesthetic Fellowship in 2020. He believes this opportunity helped him achieve his goal of a more fulfilling career.

“I was no longer feeling rewarded in my career as a general surgeon. After my time as a fellow, I felt confident with my skills and prepared to immediately provide liposuction services. Now, I get to focus on what I do best, customizing procedures to ensure positive results for the patient every time.”
