1 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

This Was my Experience with Dr. Gikas, You'll Probably Want to Read - Chicago, IL

Show More The positives.. he was easy to schedule for and there was no consultation fee. Other surgeons I found charged high consult. fees which is why I didn't see them, unfortunately. The negatives.. I made about 5 office visits to him. The first few were around 15-30 min waits. The last couple times were about 45 min. waits, and there were no other patients there. The receptionist both times told he that he just stepped out of the office for a bit (1). I initially considered gyno surgery also with him. He told be he would do it but I didn't need it, it would go away with more exercise. Gyno (hard lumps under the nipples) does not go away with exercise. After hearing that statement I decided I was going to have someone else perform this surgery (2). He gave me steroid injections to try to reduce the extended tip (which didn't work because it ended being cartilage). First time the needle was excruciating, it hurt more than the surgery. And then the actual steroid hurt going in. The next visit I asked him to use a smaller needle. He did and it was painless, it must have been much smaller. Why didn't he use this the 1st time? (3). And this time I felt no steroids being injected. Honestly I think it might have been a very small amount because he said he wanted to do a revision if the steroids didn't work (4). Regarding the revision.. I told him how the indentions weren't corrected and that was the main reason for me wanting a nose job. He said I never mentioned that in my consultation. I told him in fact that I did. So he went and looked through his notes in my chart then said "ok well I can give you a revision to correct that" (4!!). And lastly, I went to see him 2 or 3 weeks after surgery and I didn't go back for almost 2 years because I was so upset with how it looked. And I would think in that time they'd call to check in on me, to schedule a visit or at least ask how my nose and chin were doing. But nope, never received a call. Again, I do not recommend this surgeon.

Show More Have previously met this doctor as I know 2 people that have used him for their cosmetic procedures. He is very caring and listened to my needs and concerns and I left his office fully informed and no questions lingering. My surgical results after only a few days are looking good! I recommend this doctor and will definitely use him again if I have any other procedures in the future.
