Care Philosophy

I have been practicing plastic surgery for over 25 years and have built a reputation of listening to my patient?s goals and educating them on what they can expect both in results and throughout the experience itself so there are no surprises. My patient?s comfort level is paramount to me so I make myself available whenever I am able, even after office hours to answer questions and concerns. We also offer complimentary consultations to put prospective patients at ease.

I asked Dr. Nachbar to perform extensive work, above and below the neck. The quality of his work is obvious even as I am healing ... rather quickly I should say. Dr. and staff are crisp, professional, yet very supportive and always ready to listen to your concerns and answer questions, even on his personal cell (which I can't bring myself to do ... he has a life). Dr. Nachbar's skill and attention to detail are amazing, and I am very grateful to have found him. I highly recommend Dr. Nachbar

I had a horrible experience. I went to him because I was dissatisfied with excess tissue around my clitoral hood. Instead of focusing on my real goals and wishes he removed the majority of my labia minora. My GYN thought it was awful and thought I should sue him. I had to go to CA and have Dr Alter repair me to the extent he could . $10k In addition to the $5k I gave him. He told me it was great I was getting a second opinion but apparently didn't care about the result because he never responded
