“Dr. Patronella remains most proud of his finest achievement: an incomparable and accommodating staff with an average length of employment of better than 10 years.”

Christopher Patronella, MD, FACS, FICS

Dr. Patronella and his dedicated patient care team find it greatly rewarding to help women and men achieve their aesthetic dreams. He and his staff share a professional commitment to giving patients attentive, compassionate care and exceptional aesthetic results to ensure that the initial consultation and every step of the surgical process is a smooth, pleasant experience for our guests.




Eva Cadena

Patient Coordinator

As Dr. Patronella’s patient coordinator for almost 20 years, I have been privileged to gain invaluable experience and information from working with one of the nation’s best doctors in plastic surgery. I want patients to know that when they walk through our door, they will be in the best of hands before, during, and after their surgery.

While Dr. Patronella’s artistic talent and surgical skill are essential to the excellent aesthetic results he consistently achieves, his patients equally appreciate his honesty, integrity, and wonderful bedside manner.

My goal as Dr. Patronella’s patient coordinator is to help patients feel comfortable and at ease during their consultation and to provide them with assistance and guidance for all of their needs at every step of the surgical experience.

As a mother of four children, I understand the demands of balancing family and work commitments while also taking time to pursue the activities and goals that bring personal fulfillment. One of the most rewarding aspects of my role is seeing the satisfaction on my patients’ faces when their dreams became a reality and hearing the positive impact this so often has on other areas of their lives such as their relationships and self-image.

I invite you to email or call our friendly patient care team at 713-799-9999 to schedule your appointment with Dr. Patronella. We look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your appearance goals, providing you with a wonderfully rewarding experience through every stage of the surgery experience and beyond!

Wendy has been with ACPS for 23 years.


I’ve seen how using good skin care products and doing treatments has helped change my skin over the past 23 years, so my goal is to pass that information along to my clients and educate them on the importance of doing good skin care treatments along with using a good quality product line and really protecting your face from the sun. I have fun with what I do all day long, and if I can change someone’s skin, make them feel better about themselves and see them smiling, then I’ve done my job. I have a close relationship with my patients and I am always there for them.
My mission in life is to live each day to the fullest and be the best that I can be.

My objective with the work that I do at ACPS is to help the client achieve a look or goal that they desire. So many suffer with a sense of diminished self esteem as they age, or due to an appearance or condition that they are not happy with. If I can help them reach a place in which they are closer to the image they want to achieve, the inner self can achieve even greater accomplishments.

“Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.” – Golda Meir

Favorite Hobbies and Activities

My passion is music and expressing self through writing music. I play the piano, violin and keyboard/synthesizer and enjoy being creative every chance possible. I am also an animal advocate. I have three dogs of my own, who were all rescues. The last one was my latest foster pup.

My passion is making someone look and feel better about themselves. I have an amazing career changing people’s lives. I could be doing a Sciton Forever Young BBL laser to reverse the aging cells in skin or correcting a breast lift scar with laser resurfacing and even doing a ultra sound radio frequency laser to break up scar tissue and inflammation of a post operative patient. Every day is different, and I am blessed to provide amazing services to our patients.

Favorite Hobbies and Activities

I have been blessed with an amazing family–three children and two beautiful granddaughters. I try and devote my time outside of work to my beautiful family. I love helping my daughter by doing things to make her life easier with mommyhood, or hanging out with my 26-year old son or even chatting with my youngest 20 year-old and giving him advice about college decisions. I love being a Mommy and most of all being a Gigi 🙂

Dr. Patronella’s aesthetic nurse specialist, Abby Loner, specializes in a variety of nonsurgical procedures to restore a younger appearance to the face, neck, and hands. Many of these treatments provide visible results quickly and require no downtime, while others work gradually to stimulate skin’s collagen for a softer, more youthful, lifted facial appearance.

As part of a comprehensive approach to providing his patients with attentive care throughout the entire surgical process, Dr. Patronella developed an “Added Touch” program of services which supports and speeds patients’ healing following surgery. Our patients appreciate the attention to detail and assistance Dr. Patronella and his caring staff provide to optimize their recovery.



A day or two following your surgery, we offer a private visit to your home by a certified medical professional through our home health care program.

This highly-skilled member of Dr. Patronella’s team has been specifically trained to address your recovery needs and educate your caregiver in the appropriate techniques for providing your care.
