As a child, I was teased about the "bulb" tip of my nose. Also as a child, I was a daily victim of physical or verbal abuse by my mother. At 14, one of those instances resulted in a broken nose that was never treated. Worse yet, now in my 40's, I look JUST like my mother as I remember her during those years and am often told that. After years of psychological therapy as well as struggling with the deviated septum and chronic sinusitis, my internist referred me to a dr who specialized as both in otolaryngology as well as board certified facial reconstruction and plastics. After determining to physical need, he confirmed me psychologically sound with good reasons for my cosmetic choice. I had my surgery yesterday, and can already see from underneath he cast that he did an amazing job! I feel blessed!

My Doctor: Wm. Russell Ries, MD
I give this rating due to the thoroughness he took in exploring my psychological health at this stage in life considering my history. To not do so would be unethical and careless. He also listened to what I wanted and thoroughly explained what needed to be done functionally. I chose him bc of his multi certifications in the areas I needed as well as community recommendation.
