Show More I just love dr. Clavijo! My first Consultation was 2 hrs. I watched a videos which dr. Clavijo-Alvarez narrated himself, very informative on what to expect. !!! Not all doctors tell you or show you every detail on what could go wrong, or infections. I must mention Tina, his front desk receptionist is very nice. After leaving his office, I was very comfortable to proceed with surgery. My surgery went as planned. Dr. Clavijo-Alvarez called me later on that evening as well as the next days to check on me. Not too many physicians will take that time to do that. All I can say is that Dr. Clavijo-Alvarez is kind, caring, easy going , realistic, compassionate and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend him!

Breast augmentation at 48 yrs old, wondering why did I wait so long

Show More After researching online for a few days, I came across Dr. Clavijo's profile. He has excellent reviews about the quality of his job, personality, about being fun to work with, great at listening to potential patients concerns and answering their questions, that he is a perfectionist… He speaks Spanish (a big plus for me), he's board certified, and he went for a PhD in a University in Spain (I'm not sure why but for some reason I found that more impressive than his experience in Harvard). I also considered Dr. Wooten based on her reviews but never got to meet her. I first scheduled an appointment with Dr. Clavijo because his office is close to where I live and I didn't have to wait too long for that first appointment. My plan was to schedule an appointment with Dr. Wooten after seeing him. But as soon as I met him, I knew I wanted him to do the job. I didn't feel the need to keep looking. At the initial consultation, he gave me a range of sizes that would work for me based on my measurements – from 300cc to 500cc silicone high profile under the muscle. After that, while waiting for the mammogram test that is required prior to scheduling surgery (oops, my last one was done over 2 years ago), I spent many hours looking at before and after pictures online, as well as other people's experiences and opinions, up to the point where I got super confused with all the possible options. On my second appointment I explained all my concerns and must haves (not too big, not fake looking, etc.) and he patiently answered my questions in a way that makes sense to an engineer (that's what I am). I then decided to trust him with the selection of the right implant for me and had the surgery done 4 days later. I am very happy with my results. 400cc high profile turned out to be the perfect size for me. I had bandages on until my first post op appointment 4 days after the surgery. When he took them off, I had no visible bruises, no infection, and he said that the scars were healing well. He showed me how to do some exercises and how to massage the upper part of the breast to help the implants drop. I started driving the next day (5 days post op) and went back to work the following day (6 days post op), feeling somewhat tired and a little sore but otherwise fine and very happy to be back, feeling prettier and more confident.

5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty

Septorhinoplasty "Amazing Results" Wexford, PA

Show More My name is Nelly and I am 34 years old. Since this wasn't my first rhinoplasty i was very scared to get botched again. I had been looking for a doctor that i could trust for so long. I made a couple of consultations with different doctors before Dr Julio Clavijo and they didn't inspire confidence like Dr. Julio does. I had an Septorhinoplasty done and i can't imagine having it done with anyone else. he is the best doctor ever!!! i can't thank him enough for my new nose. Totally worth it. Everything went well during and after the surgery, i was so glad to sleep and be able to breath. As soon as he removed the cast off my nose the results were amazing even though it was still swollen. My breathing is finally normal.
