From a young age, Dr. Eric Mariotti knew that he wanted to be a surgeon. Not only did it mean following in his father's footsteps, it was a personal passion. "My mother taught me how to sew when I was ten years old, and I've never stopped," he quips. Today, he feels blessed to have found one of the best jobs he could ever think to have – a plastic surgeon serving Walnut Creek, Danville and other East Bay communities.
The specialty of plastic surgery, however, was not something he'd considered until a friend in medical school convinced him to take an elective in reconstructive surgery. After the third day, he was in love. "I remember coming home after the first week and telling my wife 'I have found my calling.'" After that, he focused all his efforts on completing the best training program possible and working towards building his career.
Today, Dr. Mariotti runs a well-respected and established practice with a carefully selected staff of professionals who thoroughly enjoy what they do. "If my employees are truly happy," he says, "then that extends to our patients. We get to know our patients very well and they often come to feel like an extended family."
