I needed a significant portion of my nose reconstructed after a Mohs procedure to remove skin cancer. Dr. Schvidler did an outstanding job recreating the shape and contours of my nose with precious little “real estate” to work with. Well done!

I went to Dr. Schvidler for a Deviated septum. Breathing was my first priority, aesthetics second. Now that my surgery is done... I look back at my old nose and cringe because my new nose is so pretty!!! We discussed some things that had bothered me about my nose, he talked to me from an artists point of view. He was very knowledgeable. Great bedside manner! I can breathe great AND I LOVE LOVE LOVE MY NEW NOSE!!!

Excellent job easing our entire family through the surgery - and did a great job! We were so pleased with all the phone calls to make sure that recovery was going well at home.

Was a 2nd opinion. WAAAAYYY better. Nice office, nice Dr, pain free procedure, well explained, calmed all concerns. Seems very knowledgeable, kind, and listened. Wait time was a little long but totally worth it. Got me in right away after I called in. Explained my options and respected my decision.

I had to have my entire bottom right nostril removed due to skin cancer via Moh's (at a different clinic). This is terrifying, especially since I'm not even 40 yet. DR. SHVIDLER SAVED MY FACE! He knows what he's doing, he answered all my questions, and the results are nothing short of miraculous. I'm extremely thankful for the work he did, answering my zillions of questions, and clearly caring about how this impacts my life. Now-you wouldn't know that a huge chunk of my nose was ever missing!

I had a great experience with Dr. Shvidler. I take some medications that I find most physicians aren't familiar with. Dr. Shvidler was very informed and helped me navigate my recovery and my medications. He is extremely knowledgeable and is willing to go the extra mile to ensure your well being. He left a clinic and came to a different clinic just to do a quick check to alleviate my concerns. I highly recommend him.

I have had Upper eyelid Blepharoplasty, as well as under-eye laser resurfacing with Dr. Shvidler. He is very courteous and confident. I am more than pleased with my results. He explained the proceedure and discussed the results I should expect, and answered any questions I had. I would highly recommend anyone considering eyelid surgery to consult with Dr. Shivdler. The office staff is kind and helpful and the facilities are Beautiful and inviting.

I had a septoplasty, could not breathe for 30 years. Military did not do so well on the first one. Dr Shvidler, saw the problem and made recommendations. He has a higher than superb bedside manner,with care and concern for your health above and beyond. After the surgery I was happy enough to cry. (And I did in private.) his professionalism is far above and beyond in the medical areas of expertise. Before you seek out another Dr. have a consult with Dr. Shvidler. One cannot say enough for him !
