      The doctor is scared of the pandemic which prevents him from treating his patients properly.

      Dr P did my rhinoplasty about 4 years ago. He and staff were very friendly but I felt my concerns were not fully listened too before or after surgery. I explained my concerns and expectations and they were not met. My profile was barley reduced, I feel where he took off some of the hump so my nose is not smooth and with his recommendation of widening my nostrils made the tip of my nose much larger than before surgery. I was told they were working on putting up pictures of his work but 4 years later still nothing. I was also told they would keep in touch after we moved which hasn’t happened though my number and email has not changed. I still get their ads though. I would need to have another rhinoplasty to get me closer to my desired results and fix what he did so I am overall pretty disappointed.

      Very knowledgeable. Did a great job on my deviated septum surgery back in 2014. Went to him for sinus issues and was able to diagnose a different problem. I would have still been suffering if it wasn't for him Thank you doctor Paciorek.

      Dr Paciorek was supposed to do a nasal septum repair for me approximately 7 years ago and instead of repairing my septum, he dug around trying to figure out what turned out to be a displaced wisdom tooth in my cheek causing me weeks of severe pain and months of infection. By the way, the septum is still crooked!!!! Kelly Konecny Kkonecny46@ gmail.com

      I am a registered nurse and saw Dr. Paciorek for Botox treatment. I also needed a second opinion bc I had Botox a few months ago by another doctor and I wasn’t happy with results. Dr. Paciorek listened to my concerns and talked with me one to one , like a real person ! I am very impressed with this doctor and his experience, manner , and genuiness. I will be going back, he is now MY Doctor! I give him 5 ++++++stars!

      Dr. Paciorek was very patient with me in addressing a lot of small and very specific problems I was experience. I was very picky and anxious about looking too different and had breathing problems that I wanted to fix as well and he did not leave out any details. His presence is calming and reassuring, especially during an anxious time like considering facial surgery.

      Dr. Paciorek made me feel extremely comfortable with my whole operation from the beginning to the end. He will even continue to check up on me far into the future just to make sure everything is going well. Dr. Paciorek was very thorough in describing exactly how my operation would go. Knowing what to expect really helps a lot when you're making a big change. What I really liked about him was that he described my otoplasty as an art as well as a surgical procedure; he wan...

      I first came to Dr Paciorek for my eyes. I noticed my lids were almost non existent. He took the time to explain and show me first hand pictures of what they would look like after surgery. Dr Paciorek spent extensive time with me explaining how the procedure would go. On my day of surgery, he took time to go over everything. I was very much at ease with what to expect. After surgery, my healing time was minimal and results were more than what I expected. Because of his ...

      I have nothing put praise for this practice, from the receptionist to the professionals. I am always treated with as if I was the only patient there. Everyone is patient with you ,kind and willing to answer any questions. The doctor is not happy til you are happy and works with you to solve your needs.

      For the past ten years or so the left side of my nose was so clogged I could not breath out of it until I came into Dr. Paciorek's office for a Tonsillectomy and gave me a head up that that breathing problem is solvable. After the first surgery we got ready to go forward with the sinus surgery as well because of the awesome staff and the success that came from the tonsillectomy. Wow not that I had both of the procedures done I wish i could have done them earlier on! Very ...

      Words can't express how happy I am with my surgical experience with Dr. Paciorek and his staff. I had two previous rhinoplasty surgeries with another facial plastic surgeon and they left me with asymmetry and a lack of integrity to the structure of my nose. As a result my confidence was lost and I struggled for several years feeling self conscious with the appearance of my nose. I came across Dr. Paciorek's website and decided to make an appointment for a consultatio...

      I came to Dr. Paciorek with a previous nose job that to be candid, could have been done better. Although my case had it's challenges, Dr. P tackled my revision rhinoplasty procedure and did so with much skill, professionalism and an artistic eye. The staff was always helpful and answered any questions I had and fit me in for appointments in a timely manor. I loved the fact that I could ask Dr. P any question I had. He seemed to always had an educated answer. Overall, the...
