Long Travel...Great Experience! Amazing Results! - West Orange, NJ

- 18 Jun 2012
Improved my breathing, physical appearance, and self esteem. My nose had been fractured which caused an indentation on the left hand side and I had a bump I was unhappy with. But even after my nose was fracture it was very difficult for me to come to the decision of having plastic surgery. Within my culture and faith there is not much of a fit for plastic surgery! I had a few consultations and even made a 3hr trip to West Orange, NJ thinking to myself "this one will be easy to cross off my list since it is so far!" I ended up very impressed with Dr. Joseph and the office team- Gloria, Barbara and Diana. And Dr. Joseph was the one to operate on my nose. I am more than please with the results and the treatment that I received before, during, and after the treatment. The service was not a “checklist” professional; it was very personalized.
I no longer have a bump on my nose! No deviation or indentation on the side of my nose! I asked him if he could give me a curve and fill in the indentation without the use of silicone I would be very happy. I specifically told him I wanted a ‘Barbie” nose without looking like it was cut and paste onto my face. I was afraid of too much nostril show – because I had asked for my tip to be brought up. I also asked to go back to work looking brand new and not bruise. This is 3 months after the surgery and my swelling is almost reduce down to what normally would take a year…this is the demonstration of how meticulous his work is! My nose looks “tenderly touched” – while the rhinoplasty procedure is truly a rough procedure…getting hit on the nose, sanding down of the bones!
Dr. Joseph and his office team are truly all the great reviews read! Sometimes when it sounds too good to be true it usually is. But I am happy to say that Dr. Joseph and his staff are the GREAT exception to that truth! Gloria was the first friendly and welcoming face I saw. She is a true professional and very efficient. She had all the paperwork ready for me and Dr. Joseph. Not once out of the 4 times I visited did I feel my time was being wasted or that they were unprepared for my visit. She assist me with the bill processing. Something that many doctors told me from the beginning they will not even attempt to do. Barbara was always so pleasant and very quick to turn any negative into a positive. Even on the days that I was not so happy after being stuck in traffic and all the other stresses of a hectic schedule, Barbara’s warmth soften me. Diana is a very pleasant young lady who assisted me to make the best out of the complimentary gifts I received after the surgery. I really enjoyed the tips she had to share and having a “girlie” moment to relax after all the “seriousness” of preparing for my surgery To be honest I have no idea what these ladies positions were but they were all absolutely competent in what they did and create a very warm atmosphere in Dr .Joseph’s office. The ambulatory care center was very cleaned. Everyone was just as pleasant and caring as in Dr’s Joseph office. My sister loved the high tech computer system that updates you on the stage of the operation for the patient that you are waiting on. Finally- Dear Dr. Joseph!- He is a GENIUS in this industry. Yes GENIUS!! Only a genius Doctor can have the interpersonal skills and technical skills at a level of 110% like he does. Everything on the” Excellent” reviews is true about him. I kid you not…he met the expectations of it all!!! I have a beautiful “Barbie” nose but naturally looking and asymmetrical with my face! At times of the consultation visits I challenged him and I expressed whatever disagreements. He handle it with confident and respectfully. I did not have to ask many questions with Dr Joseph- he met with family members. Made them feel at ease. He explained in detailed what I would think, see and feel, before, during ,and after surgery… during the 6 week period I noticed a slight indentation in my nose and I could see where the cartlidge graph was inserted. Dr Joseph with great confidence said “you have a lot of swelling, lets take a look at it in 3mos”. The honest truth was that I was terrified it would not subside…well I should have known better…just like he said is gone!!! Is that experience or what? Dr. Joseph operated on me on his normally day off. I am the chick with an agenda pre written for the year. I said to Dr. Joseph on the second visit that if he did not get me in the OR in March then it was just not going to happen for me this year. He got me in…and I still experienced the personalized call late in the evening that all the reviews talk about. He spoke to my sister and informed her well of what I should eat, do and not do, may happen and will not happen- all this even while it was already given to us in writing. What a sincere act of care! The fact that I don’t endorse or do reviews on anything and now I’m writing an “essay” of Dr. Joseph and staff (LOL) should tell you send the message about what type of doctor he is! Ultimately, if you want a doctor that you can trust that he will be honest about what he can do; educate you on the realistic results of plastic surgery; outstanding at what he does and give you results natural beautifying results; and is sincerely caring about his patients…Dr. Joseph is the doctor to meet! He asked that I visit him in 3 mos; 6mos; 1year after the surgery. I made it to 3mos visit. I am not going back as much as I would love to chat with them for a minute. I am absolutely pleased with my results and there is nothing to say if I go back but “Thank you!” “That I pray that he never changes and he can continue to bless those who truly are in need of these surgery because of some trauma in their life” “And that him, staff members, and families receive all the deserve blessing for their work” Rut 2:12 “That I look forward to the day that my God will bring end it to the insanity of this world and replace it with the one mentioned in Rev. 21:3,4” “But until then its great to know people like him and his staff!”
