After surgery, still have deviated septum, large scar on face, breathing worse than ever before. All should have been corrected with one surgery! after reading reviews, he may have been reluctant to fix my deviated septum.Dr. Dobratz's staff even asked me why he did not correct the deviated septum along with broken nose! I should not be having these problems if he would have done his job! My nose is numb, can't breath and have a scar for life now. Dr. not interested in well being of patients
in Chesapeake, VA |
Excellent surgeon on questionable procedure (deviated septum, removing cartilage from ear and inserting in nose) leaving me with problems I did not have before, discomfort/change to physical appearance. Like building an airplane hangar in my nose. Distorted the cartilage in one nostril (told would require another surgery to correct, billable) and negatively changed the external appearance of my nose, making in harder to shave under my nose and I cut myself frequently.
Virginia Beach, VA |
If getting surgery for a deviated septum: your nostrils may end up bulbous; tip of your nose may be truncated; cartilage in a nostril may be distended inwards by pressure of the cartilage from your ear that was inserted; be careful of forming your nose by pressuring it with your finger, this may distort the bone and require more surgery. My right nostril is clear, but boy do I wish I had my handsome old nose back. A challenging surgery for this good doctor, but we never expected this.
