Over the next few months, Dr. Shenker will be profiling members of the TCSC staff team and the incredible roles they play in the day to day operations of the clinic.    It’s not just any nurse that would put her finger in a belly button for me. It takes a special nurse to do that… Most of the patients who walk out of the Cosmetic Surgery Clinic after their successful operation take the time to thank the recovery room nurse who took care of them after the operation.
