Patient Comments (13)

He was supposed to do correction of deviated septum and rhinoplasty, but he botches it and my nose looks BIGGER than before not SMALLER, as he'd assured it would be. He was also arrogant. Now, I'm compelled to have surgery done again. AVOID this doctor!

Have seen this Dr twice. Very knowledgeable and quick. He has a very dry wit, which , by reading some of these comments I see some folks could not deal with. I personally think he is a very good Dr and knows his business. Thank you Dr Seal

I have first hand knowledge of what a skilled surgeon he is. It's not always about how much you like a doctor, but more how competent and skilled they are. I've seen hundreds of his patients do better than other doctors who are "nicer" than he is. I choose a good outcome over personality. But I do...more

Curt to the point of rudeness. I wouldn't really care about that if he had done anything to try and determine what's wrong with my ears. Spent three minutes with me at the most. I will not be returning. Now I understand why he had the first available appointment.

This doctor was like meeting an iceberg (very cold) No bedside manners. The office staff was very nice. But won't go see Dr Stephen Seal again.
