For the past several months, I have looked at more noses than I care to admit, read more reviews than Siskel and Ebert wrote, and googled doctors til my little fingers developed arthritis. I finally narrowed it down to four surgeons. I scheduled consultations with three out of the four doctors. The first two, although both good, didn't impress me enough to book. Guess third time was a charm!
I must say, prior to even going to my consultation with Dr. Kassir, I was already quite impressed. His staff is by far top notch! They go above and beyond to make you feel important and special. I honestly felt like a celebrity client! I didn't expect this...especially since the staff at the other two places weren't nearly as accommodating.
October 22nd - Consultation day arrived! I was very excited, yet nervous at the same time. After all, this was DR. KASSIR! I was greeted by Sanela, the patient coordinator and she immediately put me at ease. The staff offered me coffee, tea and even chocolate! How could you NOT love this place?
After filling out some paperwork, I met with Dr. Mojarradi. He took tons of pictures of my nose at different angles. He asked me some questions and answered all of mine. He also showed me pictures of recent rhinoplasty surgeries done by Dr. Kassir.
Moments later, I was greeted by Dr. Kassir. I felt as I already knew him. Possibly due to the stalkerish research I've done on his work the past few months ..????
Dr. Kassir is quite possibly one of the sweetest and most humble surgeons I've met. It's pretty amazing actually, given his exceptional credentials. Dr. Kassir listened to what I wanted and offered his advice. I couldn't be happier.
For the first time in the past few months...I felt confident enough to make a decision. I called my fiancé from the office and booked my surgery the same day. I must also mention...I booked my surgery BEFORE seeing any sort if digital imaging simply based on my gut feeling and of course, all the research I had done.
I scheduled the first available appointment. I was lucky that he had an opening in New York a little over two weeks away. I took the date and paid in full!
So my rhinoplasty journey begins.... November 8th is the BIG DAY!
