Dr. Nuara was a bit passive and rude. After his visit I had a lower self-concept/worth. He seems a bit vicious and I am left wondering if he cares for his patients.

Dear Dr. Nuara, I recently had you do a revision on a botched rhinoplasty. I couldn’t be more happy with the results. I can now breath again after not being able to for over a year. Not only did the previous doctor leave me with a unflattering nose that didn’t function but I felt so unattractive it was unbearable. Thank you so much for giving back to me something I never thought possible. You truly are someone special. I won’t ever look in the mirror again without thinking of you. Thank you.
