Why Plastic Surgery in Portland, Maine?
Dr. Connolly joined Plastic + Hand Surgical Associates in 2016. Coming from the Midwest, Dr. Connolly didn’t grow up near the ocean or mountains and thinks it’s amazing to be able to go to both so easily. She also loves Mainers: “I enjoy the people here who seem so down-to-earth and I find it really interesting to hear about their lives.”
Philosophy of Care
Dr. Connolly tries to treat her patients as she would want a family member to be treated. She says, “I try to get to know people and communicate in a way that makes my patients comfortable and that shows them I care.”
