My biopsy results came back as suspicious and Dr Koriwchak recommended to have my thyroid removed. He promised that my scar will be invisible and I Will not be able to see it 3 months after surgery. It has been over 4 months now and my scar looks terrible. I have raised scar tissue and it's red!!! He never mentioned to me that I need to use silicone gel or ointment on the scar to help it heal well ( I have asked that question couple times) . I have to do another surgery ( scar revision) :(((

I feel very fortunate to have found Dr. Koriwchak to perform my recent parathyroid surgery. I cannot imagine a more qualified head and neck surgeon than Dr. K. Not only did he successfully remove the parathyroid adenoma, my recovery time was minimal and unless you knew I had had the procedure, you would not be able to tell I had ever had it from the amazing job he did with only a minimal incision and basically zero scarring after only a week and a half. Terrific bedside manner. Great doc!!
