Are you a patient of Byron D. Poindexter, MD?
I cannot adequately put into words how much reading about other people's experiences going through a breast reduction has helped me finally decide to go through with surgery. I knew for a long time that it was available as an option, and I toyed around with the idea, but several factors kept me from considering it as a serious possibility: not thinking I was that big, seeing woman larger than...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision
I have had the BEST experiences with Dr Poindexter. He has always been honest, very knowledgeable, trust worthy, and has the most gentle/supportive bedside manner. I fist came to him to replace my old/original breast implants I had done at another practice. I loved him so much, I came back to him a few years later to swap them out so I could go bigger. I recently went back for a third...

Dr. Poindexter was very thorough and listened and addressed all concerns. Put me at total ease for my procedure. He gave honest feedback and offered suggestions with zero pressure. He sculpted my body into the best it's ever looked. Even before I had 3 kids. This is the best I've ever looked. And I look natural. My belly button is PERFECT. I'm only 6 weeks post op, and still slightly swollen. I'm am beyond excited to see my final results.

3 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
I was treated very well by the doctor and the staff. Unfortunately, I am quite unhappy with the results of my $20,000.00 facial surgery. I supposedly had a lower blepharoplasty but I have extensive wrinkling ,still. I cannot smile in photos due to the unsightly wrinkling. My nose after a tip rhinoplasty looks bulbous and unattractive. The chin implant that he used has given my Jaw a square...
5 out of 5 stars Lower Face Lift
I was a patient of Dr Poindexter (but moved 6 yrs ago ). I searched for a surgeon that I completely trusted and had the time to sit and talk to without being rushed. Dr Poindexter is the one I chose. He is an amazing person and doesn't push having surgery when you don't need it. I am going to Va next month and have an appt for my Botox. I have not found a plastic surgery center here that...

Shirts and dresses just didn't look right on me.Im a 34b my ideal size is to be a small D between 450-500cc not sure yet.I wanted to go with Silicone at first but when I heard...
[Note: My original doctor's review was written prior to the operation, just after the initial consult]. While everyone I've encountered does have a great bedside manner, especially the doctors, I am not happy with the current situation. After continually voicing legitimate concerns with both my nose and breasts (beginning immediately following surgery) I was seen again for my three month check-up, wherein the doctor conceded that I will require a revision.

Dr. Poindexter is a very nice and kind surgeon, I just think more time needs to be spent on expectations vs results so that a happy medium can be obtained.
