Are you a patient of Richard Albin, MD, PhD?
My experience with Dr Albin and his staff has been far from good. Aside from the long waits to see Dr Albin, the outcome of my rhinoplasty was not good. After my surgery no one called to check on my status which even my aesthetician does after a simple chemical peel. During my one year follow up, I brought up my concerns with one of his staff members with a simple and insincere "well, I'll pas it along…". This is truly not what I expected from a top notch surgeon or his staff. As I was leaving the office, his assistant didn't even have the common courtesy to say good-by, knowing that I was upset. I would not recommend Dr Albin and his staff.
I choose not to have Dr. Albin continue to treat me after the revision and injury. This horrible situation has had an enormous negative impact on my life. He has refused all requests to refund the fees I paid to him. His insurance company told me that "unfortunately, these things happen" and I received "appropriate care". I recently wrote to him again and asked that he do the right thing and refund my money to help offset the cost of reconstruction. His response, after rambling on about how he never abandons a patient, was that due to the negative tone of my initial correspondence he decided to have his insurance company "deal with my issues". I will post pre- and post-op photos soon, including pictures of the cautery burn. I've filed a complaint with the Colorado Board of Medical Examiners.
I chose Dr. Albin after interviewing and meeting with 4 other plastic surgeons. I was so fortunate to have had Dr. Albin perform my surgery. The results of my surgery far exceeded my expectations. I am pleased beyond words with Dr. Albin and his excellent staff. Dr. Albin is a highly skilled surgeon, who listens to his patients concerns, and, gives honest feedback as to realistic expectations for results from surgery. He is a man of high integrity, who has real compassion for his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Albin to all my friends and to anyone who is considering plastic surgery. Marie G.
One of my friends had surgery previously with Dr. Albin so I took her suggestion.
My sister had Dr Albin do her facelift and lipo. I was jealous. She's older but looked much younger. Now we're back to normal!
