Dr Ron Gruber is the greatest Rhinoplasty Surgeon out there

I've had my Rhinoplasty Surgery with Dr. Ron Gruber about 6 Months ago. The entire process was a very pleasant experience. He took his time to educate me and wiped away any doubt and fear I had prior to meeting him. There was no pain, and minimal swelling after my surgery. The results were Epic. I have allot of respect for him and I am thankful for the great experience from beginning til end.

This ended as a big fail as my septum reverted crooked and my tip and mid vault became collapsed in on the left hand side. The surgeons' response was to suggest permanent filler bio alcamid, and I...

The Results Speak for Themselves - Oakland, CA

I went to see four other well regarded surgeons before finding and selecting Dr. Gruber for my deviated septum and secondary rhino. Three of them put me through a typical horse and pony show with high powered sales pressure, both over simplifying my case difficulty and over pushing the other services such as botox and laser stuff. The fourth, took one look at me and said…"I can't help you. Y...
