I had an excellent experience with Dr. Mushtaq. He was very considerate and did an excellent job explaining my condition, its implications, and his proposed treatment for it. My first operation with Dr. Mushtaq was to have a mass removed from my salivary gland, but despite the size of the mass, it is very difficult to tell. He took great care to both preserve the facial nerve and mitigate the scarring around the incision. I was so impressed that I returned to have my deviated septum fixed, which was also excellent work, insofar as I am concerned. His office staff were also very helpful.

As a patient of Dr. Mushtaq’s, I must respond to a previous, negative review. Their information is incorrect. Actually, he is professional, compassionate and a perfectionist but more importantly, he is highly qualified. Research for yourself: John Hopkins University Facial Plastic Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship at Emory Univ. Multiple board certifications Multiple fellowships Education, degrees, years of experience and patient appreciation speak louder than one negative review.

Very professional doctor and staff. Between front desk to nurses and Doctor Mushtaq, were all friendly and knowledgeable. Went in for second opinion and decided to change to Doctor Mushtaq for my surgery.

My family members and I have been treated by Dr. Mushtaq for nearly twenty years. He is a superb physician, who has treated us for allergies, bronchial issues, and facial cosmetic problems. Not only is he an incredibly skilled surgeon, he always makes time to answer patient questions and to ensure that each patient fully understands available treatment options. He is a brilliant and compassionate physician and I could not recommend him more highly.

I am pleased with my results — I have “ethnic” features so I had a very bulbous, hooked nose shape before I came in. Dr. Mushtaq reshaped my nose into a more streamlined profile without making me look artificially Caucasian. My swelling also went down way more quickly than I expected, so when I returned to school my friends couldn’t tell that I had a nose job (although, because my nose flatters my features much more now a couple friends asked if I had something done to my lips or eyes).

Dr. Mushtaq performed my nose job, and I could not be happier with the outcome! My nose is both more aesthetically appealing and structurally sound; it suits my face perfectly and I can breathe much better! It is thinner, straighter, and more defined than before but does not look unnatural or overdone. In addition to the phenomenal results, I was impressed with the exceptional care I received from pre-op to post-op. The staff was courteous and I was seen punctually.

I went to see Dr. Mushtaq after I suffered a terrible work related injury to my nose. I was a bit worried about seeing an ENT doctor to perform a complex reconstructive procedure on my nose since he wasn’t certified in plastic surgery. Letting Dr. Mushtaq operate on my face was the worst mistake of my life. My nose is mangled and I have been experiencing infections inside my nasal passages. My nose is worse than before, I have lumps and a giant gaping hole inside my septum.

Please listen carefully! Do not let Dr. Mushtaq perform surgery on your face! He destroyed my nose and left me with permanent deformities and I will never be the same. I have spent over 30k out of my own pocket to have another surgeon fix the damage that he caused to my face. I contacted his office many times and begged him to remedy the situation and he was condescending and rude. I have been hospitalized many times for serious infections and I now have permanent scarring.

"You have to understand we have a lot of patients," and "the doctor doesn't call back patients," are only a couple of the lines of the horrendous exchange with his staff as I was trying to get my probably infected lipoma on my forehead removed.
