Alex Senchenkov, MD

“The patient entrusts the surgeon the only body that he will ever going to have and this is an enormous privilege. I entered this profession as a teenager and spent decades in studying and training to measure up to such great trust. We work hard to deliver you the best possible results. The quality of your care, your health, your outcomes, and your wellbeing are of the highest priority to all of us in this practice.”

Patient Testimonials

“Dr. Van Vliet is a rare find as he really cares about his patients and listens to what it is they are wanting. Although that sounds basic, it is really important when dealing with permanent changes to your body. I have worked with other surgeons who have done what they think is best, not what was requested. He has a professional and friendly staff that is always there to answer questions. I could not be happier with the results!”


““A very knowledgeable, caring physician. He knows what he is doing. I felt very confident and at ease with him! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a top-notch doctor!”
