Updated on 26 Jun 2012:I consulted with five reputable facial plastic surgeons in hopes to find someone who could fix the sloppy mess my first surgeon did to my nose. After consulting with Dr. Pontell, I knew right away that he could fix my nose. He is a true artist and great at what he does. He was great throughout the whole process and overall he is a kind man that takes interest in knowing his patients, rather than some doctors that don't spend much time with you. Although I'm a bit swollen, because the cast just came off, I can say that Dr. Pontell gave me my self- confidence back. I now have a nose that fits my face and looks like a nose I was born with.

Extremely sweet and soft spoken, very honest about what will help you and what would be a waste of money, did a beautiful job on my nose and face and followed up with me closely. Seemed to genuinely care!

After visiting five very prominent doctors in our area, I settled on Dr. Pontell. It was an easy decision once I met him and we discussed the procedure and I viewed his photos. He is blessed with "good hands". He was very attentive to my concerns and my expectations were fully met. I would not hesitate to use him again.

I interviewed 4 other doctors before choosing Dr. Pontell and I know I made the right choice. He has been very supportive every step of the way and I could not have asked for a better result. I want everyone to know what an amazing, skillful surgeon he is.

For all the reasons mentioned in my review. Dr. Pontell is an artist. He was the only right choice for me, had an instant connection with him.

I love Doctor P. He is the best! I did so much research and talked to so many people that have had rhinoplasty performed by him before choosing. I made the right choice and am so thankful to him for giving me my new nose! No complaints here!

Dr. Pontell was awesome during the consult. I was five minutes late (i was not aware of the rush hour traffic on my route) and the receptionist seemed annoyed but that was understandable. Dr. Pontell was helpful and showed me a ton of photos from previous surgeries.

Dr. Pontell is an EXCELLENT surgeon. I am very happy with the results. He is kind, caring, and a perfectionist. What more could I ask for in a plastic surgeon?

Really enjoyed my consultation with Dr. Pontell. Despite being nervous about everything, I felt very comfortable with him and loved that he showed various photos of similar noses. His experience and previous work impressed me. It took some time to think things over but I finally decided to choose him as my surgeon. So far things are looking great. I'm still getting used to the new nose but my experience with Dr. Pontell has been satisfactory!

He is very professional, soft spoken and a true artist. He takes time and does not rush anything when you have a consult. He will call you after your procedure to see how you are doing and if you have any questions.

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Pontell and would recommend him to anyone considering facial plastic surgery.

Excellent doctor with a light hand! He is an artist... knows just the right spots to fix and does it painlessly. NO swelling, NO bruising! Outstanding. I've been to a couple other places for Botox injections and I've never been as happy. I highly recommend!

I appreciated Dr. Pontell providing his contact phone numbers so that he can be reached at any time, and his follow up call the evening of the surgery to check of me.

Dr. Pontell spent ample time with me and my husband during my consultation for rhinoplasty. He did not try and rush the free consultation, but instead was willing to engage in small talk with my husband and answer all questions pertaining to my concerns. Dr. Pontell uses a computer imaging to manipulate my photo and show me how I would look after the nose job. The nose Dr. Pontell created with the computer program fit my face perfectly and did not appear to be the typical up-turned nose so common after a rhinoplasty. After my consultation I decided that due to Dr. Pontell’s calming and thorough demeanor I would move forward with a nose job. I scheduled my surgery and unfortunately had to cancel my original date and reschedule. Dr. Pontell’s office manager Kay was very accommodating and kind during this process. My rhinoplasty went wonderfully and my mom (who took me for surgery) was extremely impressed with Dr. Pontell’s attentiveness after surgery. Dr. Pontell called me that night to make sure I was doing alright. He gave me his personal cell phone number and urged me to call with any concerns. I did not need to reach out to him because any aches, pains, swelling, or bleeding were fully expected due to Dr. Pontell’s in depth explanation of post-surgery occurrences. I am approximately 3 months post-op and am absolutely thrilled with the results! My nose looks identical to the original pre-op photo Dr. Pontell created. I do experience some minor swelling in the mornings, but aside from this I believe my nose is basically perfect! I highly recommend Dr. Pontell. He is a kind, thorough, patient, and excellent plastic surgeon.

I recently had both a rhinoplasty and chin implant. It's something I've considered for a very long time and recently decided to consult with Dr. Pontell on a recommendation. He was amazing. I couldn't be happier. It is me, but better! I highly recommend his services to anyone considering this option.

After viewing Dr. Pontell's portfolio, I was very impressed by his work. At my consultation, Dr. Pontell used computer imaging to show the projected results of rhinoplasty on my nose. I recommend Dr. Pontell to anyone looking for a cosmetic surgeon. The results of my new nose impressed everyone, myself included. In my opinion, Dr. Pontell made my nose as perfect as it could be. I am so glad that I found him in my search for a rhinoplasty surgeon!

I performed a lot of research on various doctors. I viewed before and after photographs, read reviews, and checked out the websites of at least 20 different doctors in the Philadelphia area. After seeing Dr. Pontell's before and after photos I decided that he was probably the best doctor to perform my rhinoplasty. I scheduled a consultation with him as well as two other doctors within a 60 mile radius. Dr. Pontell is a busy doctor and although my fiance disagreed, I thought his demeanor during the consultation showed it. I felt somewhat rushed. However, Dr. Pontell was confident in what he could do and his photographs spoke volumes. I wanted the best doctor to perform my rhinoplasty and after all of my research and consultations I decided Dr. Pontell was the one. Dr. Pontell really showed that he cares about his work and his results are amazing. I told him exactly what I wanted and he explained exactly how he could do it. Throughout the process Dr. Pontell made himself available to me when I needed him and my initial hesitation regarding his hasty demeanor immediately subsided. He really took the time and care to explain everything, answer all of my questions and to do his job and to do it right. After I saw the results of my rhinoplasty his website domain (www.facesculptormd.com) really made sense; he is a face sculptor and an artist. I love my new nose! I love the way I feel now when I walk down the street, look in the mirror and pose for photos. I only wish I would have gone to see him sooner. Now, with confidence, I really can say that Dr. Pontell is the best. I recommend him to everyone considering having rhinoplasty.

I consulted with 5 surgeons with excellent credentials and reputations. Dr. Pontell is the only one that I consulted with twice. He is calm, confident, prompt,and really makes you feel at ease. I highly suggest for any facial surgery that you see Dr. Pontell. He is always available to speak with and he has a genuine gift.

Fabulous physician who is a true artist! I was lucky to find him on the internet after many researches and reviews. Have already recommended him to friends! Dr. Pontell is caring and kind. He listens and is easy to speak and joke with, he treats you like a friend. He took alot of time with me and my husband explaining the procedure and outcome. He was able to show computerized photos of what my nose would look like after surgery. Dr.Pontell and his staff were available for questions. They completed my FMLA paperwork in a timely manner. Please don't hesitate to book an appoinment with Dr. Pontell. He was able to reconstruct a nose that someone else had already operated on years ago and make a masterpiece. I am forever grateful!

I thought I knew what procedures I needed to look younger and better and I met with four different plastic surgeons. Three of them were willing to sell me everything I asked for. Dr. Pontell was the only one who advised me that I did not need all the procedures. He then quoted me a lower price for less work. This was a few months ago and I had him do exactly what he said I needed and nothing more and I am extremely happy with my results. I am so grateful to Dr. Pontell for his honesty and expertise in not selling me more than I needed and doing a beautiful job!! Thank you Dr. Pontell !!

Five stars for all of the above! I was fortunate to find his website on line. After seeing before and after photos of Dr Pontell's work and meeting him, I had complete confidence in his surgical skills. I highly recommend Dr. Pontell!

I searched extensively for a Surgeon skilled in both facial cosmetic surgery and African American sculpting. The work that I've seen in his office is beautiful.

After a lot of research I chose him!! I am a repeat patient of his! I am happy to report that I went back to the lovely Dr. Pontell for some Botox and his Liposonix! The Liposonix really did take an inch off my belly and am am happier with the way I look in a bathing suit and the way my jeans fit me. It is definitely worth it in my opinion!!! He also gave me Botox and I am also very happy with that!! I am so glad I found Dr. Pontell. He is a lovely man and not arrogant, but a warm and caring person !!
