Dr. Patronella's Patient Care Team

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!

Favorite Hobbies and Activities

I enjoy serving on the Greeting team at my church, cheering my kids on at their sporting events, and being anywhere near the water.

Many of Dr. Patronella’s loyal staff members have been with him for more than 10 years, providing his patients with outstanding continuity of care and the comfort and reassurance that comes from seeing friendly, familiar faces during visits to the practice.

At The Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery, our patient coordinators go the extra mile to ensure patients are informed, respected, and accommodated in every way possible. On your initial visit to the practice, Eva Cadena, Dr. Patronella’s patient coordinator since 1995, will greet you and introduce you to his practice. Always engaging and informative, Eva will listen attentively to your concerns and specific goals while answering any questions you might have. Eva will share with you Dr. Patronella’s professional credentials, an extensive gallery of before and after images, offer computer imaging and prepare you for your visit with Dr. Patronella. You may also be invited to visit his complete gallery of before and after images on his website.

Dr. Patronella’s aesthetic nurse specialist, Heidi Fell, RN, BSN, 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.
