5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Happy but with Caveats (with video) - Seattle, WA

He was professional, friendly, smart, and clearly knew what he was doing. He did not at all try to sell me, but at first ordered me a sinus CAT scan to make sure that wasn't the issue with my breathing. It wasn't and we proceeded with the surgery. I felt like I was in great hands.

5 out of 5 stars Facial Reconstructive Surgery

Positive Experience Considering my Circumstances - Seattle

I say worth it because I had no choice. Dr. M I would trust to recommend to others with my same situation. He performed reconstructive surgery on my nose after I had skin cancer removed. He did a great job and my year of follow up was a success in regards to healing and minimal visible scarring.
