I wanted a nose job for quite a while when I found Dr. Joseph and when I read all the positive reviews I thought why not. I went in and I did not find him to be very friendly and did indeed find him to be pretty condescending. However I thought that based on the sheer mass of great reviews to go with him. The day of the surgery the anesthesiologist was very warm and friendly and he was nice. He gave me his personal cell and seemed nice enough with my questions. Second checkup I felt a bit rushed but his staff is very friendly. They gave me a makeup kit which was a cute touch, not the facial like the other reviews say because he was busy (hence the feeling rushed)
I could be wrong, maybe he just didn't like me lol
The recovery was tough for me and I was in bed rest for two weeks in a lot of pain. This is to be expected so I was fine with it. I felt pressured to have my pictures up and write a review. See the problem I have with all these positive reviews is that they trump the constructive criticism. People don't tend to like having their ego bubble burst because it doesn't reaffirm their beliefs on themselves. My nose is slightly up turnt and the nostrils are pretty large but I thought it was just swelling. I feel as if that was just me trying to be positive because I have not noticed changes. Although I do get compliments on it I'm still a little self conscious. Overall I wouldn't say I regret it a. Because I paid so much and don't want to linger on it and b. Because it could be worse.
My thoughts on all the great reviews are that they genuinely liked his personality and the cute freebies he gives out. Rhinoplasty is not an exact science and it isn't something that will end up perfect every time. With those variables in mind I strongly urge anybody trying to find a doctor to keep your options open and don't feel pressured. When I went in he spoke about my "big fat nose" and I felt my insecurities screaming at me even more. So I felt even more pressured to get rid of it and just went with him. This is my honest opinion and I really do hope that anybody reading this takes my advice and in turn feels 100 percent comfortable with their doctor before making it permenant. Thanks for reading and best of luck on getting your dream nose.

As I said above he seemed nice at first and then a tad condescending. I didn't really appreciate a lot of the comments made and the being rushed on subsequent arrivals to his office
