Maegan - Nurse
Maegan is a local of Orange County and once you meet her you will instantly understand why she is a nurse. She gained her initial nursing experience in a sub-acute hospital resulting in a knowledge that extends above and beyond cosmetic procedures and a compassion that is unmatched. Maegan is known to have a heart of gold and our patients love her gentle ways and her patience. Maegan is Dr. Bandy's right hand wo'man' in the operating room as she is the OR nurse that assists while Dr. Bandy transforms her patients. If you blink, you might miss her as you will never see Maegan in one place too long. She is in the operating room, exam rooms, assisting patients in pre-operative and post operative follow up visits as well as being in our operating room sterilizing instruments and ensuring that our surgical facility and treatment rooms are stocked and available for our patients. When Maegan is not at Dr. Bandy's office, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends and enjoys shopping for outfits that aren't surgical scrubs!

Other than being in the operating room, Stephanie’s favorite part of patient care is seeing how grateful the patients are from the beginning of their surgical journey, until the end. Nothing makes her happier then to see someone else feel so good about them self. On her free time, she loves to watch movies, do arts and crafts, or reorganize pretty much anything; but most of all she loves to cuddle with her English Bulldog Belvedere. Family and friends are always number one in Stephanie’s life; as they are the foundation who made her the loving caring person she is today.
