I have seen some of your doctors speak highly of Dr. Gunter and Dr. Rohrich here in Dallas/Ft. Worth for "redo's" of nose surgery. I know alot of you have voted for Dr. Gunter. My delima is Dr. Gunter doesn't file insurance but Dr. Rohrich does. I know a great protion of my problem is breathing with some cartlidge deterrioration. Is Dr. Rohrich as good as Dr. Gunter? Everything I have read from his webpage and seen pics. seem to me to be good. Thanks for any advice.

Do your interviews. You have two excellent doctors there. View as many before and after photos as possible and also, have computer imaging to show you the predicted result.
Speak with and meet some of the doctors' patients to really understand the experience. It is fair to ask about costs, of course. Check everything with your insurance company before you schedule a date with one of the doctors so there will be no surprises.
