This man is a prodigy & the most highly skilled and talented doctor in the country. I got botched by some doctors 6 years ago & consulted with over 60 surgeons all over the U.S., including many self professed as 'the best'. Attempts by other doctors resulted in more damage & scarring because they ignored my insights for the correction, & kept performing 'template' procedures inappropriate to the problem. Dr. Reish knows more than anyone I've encountered, has greater skills, is humble & fixed me!

I just had a rhinoplasty with Dr. Reish about a week ago and with all the swelling and bruising, i can still see the difference in my nose and how well it already suits my face. I severely broke my nose twice when i was young and never got to fix my nose and the problems that came along with it. I chose Dr. Reish because of his excellent background and great reviews and it really paid off! He is very supportive, motivated and always on top of his game. I couldn't be any happier with my result.
Surprise, NY |
I had a breast augmentation with Dr. Reish last month. I am thrilled with my results! The shape of my breasts is perfect and my incision is nearly invisible and is much smaller than anyone I have ever seen. This is a surgery I had wanted to do for such a long time.

During my consultation, his bedside manner and patience truly ma

I had a rhinoplasty with Dr. Reish four months ago. I am thrilled with my results--my nose looks so natural and is exactly what I wanted--to have a dramatic improvement in my nose and not have an overdone look. When I was deciding which surgeon to see for my rhinoplasty, a friend had highly recommended Dr. Reish. They described him as an incredibly smart Harvard surgeon with the best credentials you have ever seen and also more importantly has an outstanding bedside manner and personality.

Dr. Reish is a personable, dedicated, and compassionate surgeon who is also extremely talented, intelligent, and comes from Harvard. These qualities truly are a rare combination to find in a surgeon. Dr. Reish performed a facelift/necklift on me back in September. I am extremely pleased with both my face and neck. I finally have a jaw-line again thanks to Dr Reish! Dr. Reish provides the best customer service I have ever encountered in a physician. For every pre-operative and post-operative appo
