Dr. Cochran repaired a previous surgery gone bad.
I unfortunately had a botch septoplasty/rhinoplasty in another state about 15 years ago and my nose structure began to look funny these last few years and my nasal breathing was becoming almost nonexistant.
I had known about Dr. G for years and had a consult with Dr. G in 2010. I finally got around to scheduling my surgery this year July 2011 and had a consult with Dr. C who joined Dr. G. I had heard about Dr. C but had not met him until recently.
Dr. C is one of the nicest physicians I have ever met. His personality is one that is down to earth and he put me at ease immediately. After reviewing my previous records and looking at my nose, he felt he could help me improve my breathing and appearance where my nose was collapsing. He took time to explain everything that he thought he would have to do and possibly taking cartilage from my ear to rebuild the inside of my nose (the septum). He talked in terms that I could understand and was very confident of what his surgical outcome could be (much more positive than my current nose structure). He used a computer program to manipulate my current photos to show my how the shape and structure of my nose would look after surgery.
I knew enough to know that a second go round with a nose surgery is serious business. You want to be in the hands of the most competent surgeon around. After speaking with some nurses behind the scenes about Dr. C's amazing surgical ability, I booked my surgery.
The surgery went as well as Dr. C had planned and I just had my one week visit today. My nose is a little swollen but it's amazing that I can breathe and my nose has structure and symetry that it did not have before. It's gorgeous!
I am so pleased with Dr. C that I wanted to let anyone who is reading know about my experience. From my first appointment to today (scheduling, insurance, the surgery center TIS, follow up visits) was done with amazing grace and expertise.
My Doctor: C. Spencer Cochran, MD
I will highly recommend Dr. C and his staff to any patient considering a nose surgery!
