5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

My Great Experience - Toronto, ON

Dr. R is a consummate professional, and the results that he produced on my nose were excellent. I had a great experience. All of my expectations were met and Dr. R as an absolute professional throughout. The only advice that I would provide is that you only have a couple of fairly quick consultations prior to the surgery, so make sure that you have all of your questions ready before your consultations to avoid the nuisance of having to go back and ask your questions by phone or email later. Also be sure to clearly communicate what you want done (as would be the case with any surgeon) so that you can be sure that you'll like the result. I was able to get on the same page with Dr. R in terms of what I wanted, and he produced a magnificent result. I could not be happier - he does fantastic work. I chose him because he has a great deal of experience, and my results testify to that.

Dr. Rival -Highly Recommend - Newmarket, ON

I found Dr. Rival after he performed Septioplasty on a client of mine. He said it was a life changing surgery and I agree! I am very happy with my septo/rhinoplasty 6 weeks post op. My recovery has been much easier than I expected. Dr. Rival answered all my questions, was prompt for each appointment. I am happy with the result and amazed at how much my breathing has improved. I have asthma and have noticed a huge difference since the operation. I would highly recommend Dr. Rival.

Septoplasy - Toronto, ON

Google search, referral from a specialist in Montreal, general feeling of competence upon meeting him and checking out the website. Dr. Rival is a fantastic doctor - professional, friendly, incredibly skilled and makes his patients feel well taken care of. I went to him for a septo-rhinoplasty and was made to feel at ease about the whole experience. What I can assure you of is how well taken care of you will be in Dr. Rival's hands. This is partly because of the digital imaging he does pre-surgery, which helps you see what he can do (managing expectations). The other helpful resource are the photos he keeps on his website, which gives you an idea of his work. Highly recommend Dr. Rival!
