I joined Sono Bello in 2016 as a part time surgeon, while I was running my own private practice in Sugar Land, Texas. I committed myself to do Liposuction under local anesthesia 2 days a week and work in my practice 4 days a week. As years passed and my experience and relationship with this company got stronger, I realized I was happier the days I was at Sono Bello. I was exhausted from dealing with the headaches that comes with running your own medical practice. I realized I was working to keep the office open, not to benefit myself or my family. I wanted more from life than my name on my office door – I wanted freedom. Finally, on July 2021, I decided to close my office and dedicate my full attention to working full time at Sono Bello.

Now, with my private practice closed, I find myself doing more surgeries a week, traveling more, being happier overall and having more spare time to pursue my hobbies. I don’t work weekends anymore and I am not on call for any hospital, ever! I no longer worry about payroll, rent or how to pay the laser machine. Financially, I make more money a month that I ever made in my own practice, without the hassle and the worries.

More important than that, every time I’ve needed help or support from Sono Bello, I’ve got it. I feel they’ve “got my back” and they will be there in the future if I need them to stand up for me.

Joining Sono Bello was the most difficult and also the best decision I’ve ever made in my life. It actually, gave me my life back.
