Stay away from the Dr. Ovchinsky who completely destroyed my nose. After septoplasty my conditions didn't get better, but got worse. The septum wasn't straightened and my nose is constantly running after the surgery. I visited dr.Ovchinsky for a follow up and there nothing else he can do as he told me. The office employee advised me to look for another doctor after I asked for an appointment with more complications.
Dear Irina, As I recall, you became very concerned about runny nose and a possiblity of brain fluid leaking throught the nose due to surgery already during first week postop, when runny nose is completely normal. None of my explanations were satisfactory to you, and you decided to seek a second opinion. I have never seen you since. Having done thousands of surgeries, I have never had a similar experience. For the record, I take a very good care of all my patients, and especially of postop ones.

I had a rhinoplasty (nosejob) done by Dr. Ovchinsky. The results were outstanding. I was surprised by my quick recovery. My nose looks beautiful now. Dr. Ovchinsky is really the best - I went to three other plastic surgeons before I met him. He is very personable, talented, and understanding. I am so happy with my nose now. Would highly recommend Dr. Ovchinsky - you will not find a better specialist!!!
