Yacmet Colón / Perioperative Nurse

Yacmet Colón graduated from the University of Puerto Rico Medical Sciences Campus in 2011, earning her bachelor's degree in nursing and later she worked in perioperative nursing at the Ashford Presbyterian Community Hospital. In 2013 she joined the group of medical professionals at the center of plastic surgery State of The Art Plastic Surgery, the office of Dr. Karim Benitez Marchand, MD. Here we offer the most comprehensive solutions available to meet your aesthetic needs from facial fillers (non-surgical) to complete surgical reconstructions. I understand that nursing is the profession of the direct patient care and I have learned to value this profession beyond the question of compassion or the ability to complete routine procedures.

Initially my motivation spawned from my love of God and my desire to be a part of something much bigger than myself. In patient care I offer all that I can give. And together with the team of professionals at State of The Art Plastic Surgery we bring excellent care with love.
