This month, Dr. Shenker writes about our Aesthetic Nurse Injector Majid! Get to know Majid, and learn about why he’s so beloved by patients and staff. Have you ever had the unusual experience of meeting someone for the first time and feeling like you have known them forever?    I have. I first met Majid, the Cosmetic Surgery Clinic’s injectables specialist and Beauty Nurse® back in the early autumn of 2017.  We had our first job interview at a local coffee shop near my house.

To our Patients, Wow, it feels great to reopen our clinic! Although things definitely aren’t back to “normal,” we’re glad we can take the next steps in opening our doors again for our plastic surgery patients from London, Kitchener, and Waterloo, ON.

You can tell a lot about a person by the way they peel an orange.

I was recently savouring a well-earned café mocha in a ski chalet in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, watching a grizzled old skier eat an orange. He was wrinkled, weather-beaten, and he looked wiley enough to easily wrestle a bear.  After removing his helmet, ski jacket and mittens, He opened a beautiful wood handled pocket knife, produced a ripe orange from a pocket of his jacket, and set to work.
