Had rhinoplasty years ago. He did an awful job! 15 years later I find out he compromised my septum and created a deviated septum that I did not have before surgery. I know this for a fact because I saw an ENT before meeting Edstrom. He lifted my tip way too high and I had cartilage poking out of my tip. Needless to say I found a surgeon in Boston who SPECIALIZES in rhinoplasty, not dabbles in everything like Edstrom. 5.5 hours later in surgery and I have the most amazing nose and I can breathe.

I was at first put off by the negative reviews, but Dr. Edstrom came so highly recommended from a well-known hand surgeon that I decided to trust the surgeon. I can not be more pleased with the result. Attentive, knowledgeable, disciplined, and clear, Dr. Edstrom is the best. I highly recommend him. He knows his stuff, and explains it well. His surgical assistant is tops. The office staff is efficient and helpful.

Had breast reduction. My scars weren't closing and kept getting worse and bigger. Every time I went to him he said it would get better. It just got worse. My GP gave me an ointment and when I returned to Edstrom he had NEVER HEARD OF IT. It took exactly three months for my skin to heal from the day of surgery until I was no longer having a problem. Three months that I could not shower fully or feel normal in life. My scars are so ugly from the infection. Horrible experience.
