Best Decision of my Life - New York, NY

I think I made a great decision with this dr. From the moment I met him I felt that I could trust him. Overall the results are better than I have imagined. I knew that this dr would deliver and I couldn't go through recovery having any type of regrets. I'm beyond happy with this dr. Everything was so easy from the consultation to surgery to my cast removal. Best dr in New York. Also amazing staff and I loved my nurse Jessica who was there for me through the whole process. Madel the office manager was also amazing, such a quick email response. I am beyond great-full.

1 year post operation

Very kind and very knowledgeable. The doctor answered all my questions and reassured me that if I have any questions and concerns he's always available to talk to me. His staff is also very kind and helpful. During the day of the operation the doctor reassured me that everything will be great and I won't have breathing problems with my nose. He also showed me the before and after pictures. With Dr Guida I felt a sense of calmness knowing that I am in good hands. The doctor's demeanor inspires trust and confidence. The care that he provides to his patients it's amazing and I would recommend Dr Guida to everybody who is looking to have their health ,well being and appearance get better. I visited Dr Guida's office to have my cast removed. The doctor was as always very patient, careful to make my experience pleasant. The doctor described every single step of the procedure and made sure I did not feel any discomfort. I've been reading from your reviews guys that some of you have described the experience as painful. I would describe it as very pleasant. Did not feel any pain or discomfort besides the funny taste of the spray the doctor used to help me breathe better after he cleaned the nose. If you are looking for someone very soft spoken, gentle and with excellent people skills and manners, aside from talented then you should probably look into seeing my doctor. Words can't describe how he and his professional stuff made my experience so pleasant and pain and worry free. He is not the regular doctor who would talk to you in medical terms and make you more confused than you were prior to seeing him. He explains everything in plain English and he makes sure to answer every question. DR Guida's staff is also extremely professional, very courteous and they go above and beyond to make your experience at the doctor's office very comfortable.

Most Beautiful Nose on the Planet -

I just had the most pleasant experience with Dr. Guida and feel at home in his office. Most importantly I am obsessed with my new nose, he truly is an artist! I choose Dr. Guida for his candid attitude, confidence and overall warmth. I also knew he was a great surgeon from his before/after images. Changing your nose is a can be a scary thing, but from the moment I walked into Dr. Guida's office he made me feel at ease. He has a great demeanor and the confidence with his work to make you feel at ease (I was extremely impressed by all his before/after images). After evaluating 7 different doctors I decided on Dr. Guida, which I do not regret for a second. My nose is to die for (I now get complements on my nose), and for the first time in my life I can walk around New York, NYithout fearing others judgement. I would recommend Dr. Guida to any of my friends or family and truly believe he is the best doctor for rhinoplasty's in the country (trust me I did a LOT of research!!!)

27 Years Old Male, Severely Deviated Septum, Along with a Clearly Visible Dorsal Deviation. New York, NY

Dr. Guida was an outstanding surgeon that applied decades of knowledge and expertise into performing the ideal septo-rhinoplasty procedure. My nose was severely deviated, with an obviously crooked slant that could be spotted from a lengthy distance. When posing for pictures, I always looked to the right hand side, hoping to get an angle that would give the nose a sem-straight look for photo's....

Flawless Work! - New York, NY

Flawless work by Dr. Guida. Where to begin!? I got septoplasty/rhinoplasty one month ago by Dr. Guida and words cannot begin to describe how happy and grateful I am to have found him. He exceeded my expectations, even the healing process was a breeze. I've met with other Doctors in the tri-state area prior to meeting Dr. Guida and his staff, and no one else compares to their true...

Rhinoplasty - New York, NY

I had a rhinoplasty with Dr Guida two summers ago at the age of 18, and I can't believe it has taken me this long to write a review. I had consultations with a few other doctors before I chose dr guida but when I met him I knew I did not have to go anywhere else. I was really careful and cautious about my choice because im super picky and I knew exactly what I wanted my nose to look like. I...

22 Years Old, College Student. - New York, NY

We had 2 consultations, and the 3rd meeting was for my procedure. I'm sure if I had wanted to meet another time in between, the staff would have made it happen as they are very helpful.

Best Rhinoplasty Ever - New York, NY

Dr. Guida is the best. He has a great eye and his work is beautiful and never overdone. He believes that less is more. His manner is as good as his technique. He is not only a fabulous plastic surgeon, he is a kind and humble human being. I trust him completely and would (and do) recommend him to everyone who asks.
