Wonderful Doc - Awesome Results! - White Plains, NY

I have wanted this rhinoplasty procedure for 15...

I have wanted this rhinoplasty procedure for 15 yrs. Through much research, and many consults, I came across an overwhelming amount of reviews for Dr. Ciardullo. Everything happened so smoothly, once I had made the decision to go with him, and I am so happy with the results! Most other doctors I had tried to reach would not take the time to speak directly with me, without charging a fee. Dr. C spoke at length with me by phone, about what I wanted done (without a fee) - and that alone was super impressive to me. His secretaries both returned my calls and promptly followed up with any questions/concerns I had. I should also mention I live in Utah. Most (fam & friends) opinions were to find a Dr. in my area, but because I wanted this to be a one time deal with a doctor I trusted, I didn't want to spare any expense with getting it done right. I didn't tell but a select few people because of the negative response and ill-support I'd gotten throughout these years of mentioning it. Once I made the decision and took action, it all happened fast and smooth.
Of all the site's I looked at, none of them had the natural results I was looking for, until I found Dr. Ciardullo. He also has an incredible staff! From before the surgery to after, the nurses and anesthesiologist were all so genuine and supportive. When I came out, one of the nurses told me how beautiful the "finished nose" is and said she knew I was going to love it. I did! A week later when the cast came off, I almost cried! He did an incredible job! It's been a month now, and the tip is still swollen, but I am so happy with his work! ;) Also, one of the nurses gave a follow up call to check on me. She was wonderful! I felt like she really did care. They gave some prescriptions for the pain, but I really didn't have pain, just pressure. So I iced non-stop the first 2 days (they also provided me with ice packs and gauze).
Having been from out of state, I was a little worried about where to stay and transportation to his office. I ended up staying in Stamford, CT and rented a car on the days of the consult, surgery date, and follow up date (1 week post-op). Otherwise, we just checked out the area on the "off days". Stamford has a train that goes straight to Manhattan (about $25 round trip). Otherwise, the downtown area of Stamford was a short walk away, and not a bad hang out. (We loved the Brickyard bar ... great prices, their wings were delicious- & service was awesome!)
The Holiday Inn Express has a shuttle that will go within a 2 mile radius, so when you don't feel like walking, you can catch a ride (the train station is exactly 2 miles away). They also have a complimentary breakfast that was really delicious (fresh baked cinn. rolls!) I'm mentioning this, because I had to piece together how to make everything work as I didn't see much info on how to get around to where I needed to go.
Hope this review helped anyone who is considering.
On a side note, right before flying out, I saw a couple of negative reviews about Dr. C. How legit they are, I have no idea... but it did freak me out a little. All I can say is go off of your gut. Dr. C felt right for me, and things went perfect as could be. Everyone has their own intuition, so pay attention.
Any questions, please feel free to email me. :)

Dr. Ciardullo is incredibly well spoken, well mannered - and charming! I felt so at ease from the first phone call until the cast came off.
