5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

33 y/o Wifey, Nurse - Always Wanted to Fix my Crocked Nose - Sacramento, CA

I've always had trouble breathing through my nose, it's crocked, I've got small bumps on the bridge of my nasal bones and the tip is large. I finally decided it was time for me to get a septorhinoplasty. Its something I've been wanting since I was 12 years old. So I finally did it. I'm currently post op day 2 and feeling pretty miserable. The swelling just really became bad yesterday evening...

5 out of 5 stars Septoplasty

Great Septo/Rhino to Fix a Beaten Up Nose - Sacramento, CA

I had a deviated septum from multiple breaks that healed wrong. I couldn't even breathe out of one side. Dr. T did a 4.5 hour sept/rhino. I have to admit the healing process was not fun.

I have had two revisions since but insurance covered it all. He's...

Some One You Can Trust - Sacramento, CA

My upper lid was actually starting to obstruct my vision and I looked "tired" in photographs but I was concerned that I might end up looking startled or scared as can sometimes happen. Dr. T's results were amazing but unnoticed but all but the few I told.

5 out of 5 stars Facial Reconstructive Surgery

The BEST! - Sacramento, CA

I interviewed 2 other surgeons. Before I chose Dr. T., another surgeon told me that after the surgery, "I wouldn't scare myself when I looked in the mirror." Dr. T. was far more...

5 out of 5 stars Ear Surgery

Excellent Level of Care - Sacramento, CA

I recommend Dr. T and the UCD team without hesitation. I am simply amazed at the level of care and follow up my son received before, during and after his surgery. It is above and beyond anything I expected. I am so glad we chose Dr. T for this procedure.
