I have never written any reviews for any doctors I went to, but in this case I will take my time to do it and you should take your time to read it.
I started my search for a surgeon about a year ago. Just like you, I went through enormous amount of sources, blogs, reviews, comments, recommendations, pros and cons et cetera. I went through so much material that at some point I felt like a medical student. I reside in New York, where there is an extremely big selection of 5 star doctors. But too much of a choice is as bad as no choice at all. And all of them were the same asking at least $500 for a consultation and then tens of thousands of dollars for the procedure I wanted. Yes, I do live in New York, but I am neither a celebrity nor a millionaire. I didn’t need an extreme makeover, I just wanted a simple rhinoplasty that will correct my nose and make me feel more confident about myself and the way I look (I did not have any breathing issues or broken nose problems). And this is when I decided to expand my search to New Jersey area.
I found Dr. Peck through this realself website. His location was not the closest to New York, but I decided to contact them anyway. I shoot a short e-mail at about 10 pm and got an almost immediate response. Next morning I contacted his assistant and scheduled my appointment. I was on a very tight schedule, so timing was my biggest concern, but his staff was so good and understanding, that we made it work. My initial consultation was great. I got all the answers, Dr. Peck was honest with me and explained me what to expect and what not, what he will be able to do and what he won’t and what is his view and opinion about my situation. He made me feel very comfortable, all his staff is so warm and friendly that you feel like you are on a regular check-up appointment and not making a decision about a surgery on your face.
So I made up my mind and decided to proceed with Dr. Peck. He was ready to work with me on my tight schedule and performed my procedure on the date that worked out just perfect for me. I had rhinoplasty and otoplasty at the same time. His staff was extremely professional and everybody was very pleasant and polite. At least one person was with me throughout all the time. I still remember that nurse who was with me while I was getting ready for my surgery and waiting for my anesthesia. She became my best friend for that day. I got everything I needed before my procedure and was communicated all possible outcomes and consequences. I also got Dr’s personal cell phone number, so in case of anything I had a direct contact with him.
After the surgery I felt horrible. I am a skinny girl and had problems with getting off anesthesia. Dr’s staff and anesthesiologist stayed with me throughout the entire time I needed to wake up after my surgery (even though it took me way longer than in their usual practice). They were very supportive and proficient. Next day I didn’t feel any better. Instead, I started throwing up everything I had and didn’t have in my stomach. I wasn’t able to even take a sip of water, forget about the painkillers. So I got scared and called the doctor’s cell phone. He answered my call right away (even though it was on Saturday) and listened to all my concerns and problems. He called the nearest pharmacy in my location and in half an hour my relative picked up the medicine that brought me back to life. Oh my God at that moment I already started thinking that I made a right choice with this doctor, because his involvement into your case and proficiency and readiness to take care of a problem right away on the go means a lot. He is a true professional who knows exactly what to do.
Everything from that date went exactly as I was told by the doctor and his staff. At least one person was calling me once a day following up on my recovery. My bruises were very small. After going through pictures on this web site I honestly expected at least half of my face turn navy blue or green. But it didn’t happen. Dr. Peck did an amazing job and after taking off all the bandates (don’t forget that I also had an otoplasty), it was almost unnoticeable that I’ve had a surgery on my face only a week ago.
Do not expect to see immediate results. Due to the major swallowing that unfortunately comes with every single surgery, you won’t be able to tell the results of the procedure you just got done. I was passionate and gave it some time. And in few months I started to see how much my face has changed. Dr. Peck did exactly what I wanted. Every single time I see myself in a mirror, I thank Dr. Peck for the face I have now. The shape of my nose is so natural, that nobody can ever tell that I had a nose job. And my ears look like they’ve always been close to my head. It’s been 7 months since my surgery and I feel beautiful, happy and very confident. I was a pretty girl before, but now I am absolutely in love with myself. I can’t stop thanking Dr. Peck for giving me my new me. He is an amazing doctor and worth every single minute and dollar you spend. He and his team will take care of you from the first minute of your call. I highly recommend his office to everybody I know. It’s a 5+ star doctor and I hope that my story will be helpful to you to make a decision towards being a more beautiful and happy person.
