5 out of 5 stars Septoplasty
Knowledgeable. Innovator. Professional. Septoplasty with a cartilage graft. His work is clean and natural. I asked for very small changes in appearance as there was SLIGHT asymmetry and he delivered perfectly.

Online and referral He withheld information and then kept telling me it would be OK. It has changed my life dramatically. I can't go out in the sun, wind, extreme temperatures. Can't wear cosmetics, sunscreen or moisturizer. I wish I had known what I know now about what he planned on doing to my face - I would have never opted to go through it, it certainly wasn't worth it.

I went to Dr. B, despite his absolute lack of personality, because he came highly recommended for septoplasty. Not a day goes by that I don't regret the decision to have surgery with him as I feel he butchered my nose. My breathing is worse then ever and my nose is deformed as a result of his "over-agressive" surgery (as described by other doctors). I was left with a wide, bulbous, uneven nose that now droops on one side. I had one revision in attempt to get it fixed ($10k), but to no avail. This surgeon indicated that he had done several revisions for surgeries performed by Dr. B. I'm now consulting out of state surgeons for a second revision.
