Q & A with Dr. W. Marshall Guy
I grew up in the Spring area on the North of Houston.
I went to high school at St. Thomas High School in downtown Houston where I graduated number one in my class. I went to the University of Texas at Austin for my undergraduate training. I received a Bachelor of Arts in biology with a Spanish minor. I also graduated top of the class with a 4.0 GPA. I went to Baylor College of Medicine in Houston for medical school, where I also graduated top of my class with the highest honors. I did my internship and residency at my top choice in the Bobby R. Alford Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Baylor College of Medicine. I did my fellowship in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Gulf Shores, Alabama at the McCollough Plastic Surgery Institute under the training of Dr. Gaylon McCollough and Fred Fedok, who are both former presents of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
I look to create a very natural result that helps to bolster one’s self confidence and turn back the clock.
I’ve always been great with my hands, so surgery was an easy fit. I specifically chose this route because it allowed me the opportunity to spend a lot of time with each patient, get to know him or her, and provide readily visible results. I chose facial plastic surgery given the high degree of precision required to achieve extraordinary results.
Spending time with patients and seeing how happy they are with the improvements we provide.
As my education shows, I’ve always been an overachiever. Couple that with being accepted into top training programs and putting forth the extra hours to be the best I can be has helped to create a successful practice.
Most of my leisure time is spent with my family. I have two daughters and a son that take up much of that time. Activities include swimming, bike rides, board games, reading with them, and even playing video games with my oldest child.
It is the only field that lets me spend the amount of time I want to spend with patients without feeling rushed.
Perfectionist, overachiever, likable/affable
I’ve been fortunate to have many great mentors. In my resident training, I was able to work with Drs. Anthony Brissett, Krista Olson, and Gene Alford. In my fellowship, I had the opportunity to train under two former presidents of our academy, Gaylon McCollough and Fred Fedok. After fellowship, I shadowed Dr. Russell Kridel until my office was able to open.
Patients choose me for multiple reasons. I would first say they see the before and afters and the work speaks for itself. Beyond that, I have an excellent bedside manner that makes people feel comfortable and confident in their decisions. I also provide plenty of time for patients so that no one feels rushed. They also know that I listen, so we create an aesthetic plan based on their goals, not just what could be done but what they want done. Following surgery, I call patients daily to check on them for a week. I also have a book I wrote and provide to the patients to help them better understand their surgery and what to expect during the process. Doing all of the little things provides for a smoother recovery.
