PLEASE READ THIS......PLEASE READ THIS......My name is Mona and I'm writing this from my hotel room on my second day of recovery after having my Rhinoplasty with Dr. Kotler. Since I flew in from Florida Dr. Kotler's office provided me a medical discount rate to stay at a nearby hotel which is close to his office and the surgery center for the duration of my recovery. But let me tell you why I'm writing this comment. I'm a commercial actor and model in Florida my face is how I pay my bills. I researched over fifty plus surgeons in my hometown as well as out of state. I had to find someone who I could trust touching my face, I had to find the BEST. Once I found Dr. Kotler I asked my husband who is an internet advertiser to find all that he can find on Dr. Kotler for me, we found many positive information and a couple of negative comments. The negative comments I read were a set back for me, but I didn't quit there...I called the office and spoke with the amazing Tricia and asked about the comments. These were her exact words to me: "Mona, Dr. Kotler has done 4000 Rhinoplasties, there are a few negative comments which we are well aware of, so you can do the math. You can't always make everyone happy, although we do all that we can for every one of our patients." Trica then explained some of these negative comments to me. She also provided me a hand full of phone numbers to call patients from all over the country who had a similar procedure done with Dr. Kotler. I spoke with a patient in Texas and a patient in NYC whom also flew to Cali for Dr. Kotler. Once I spoke with them, I regained the confidence. I had a SKYPE consultation with Dr. Kotler and from there on THEY DID EVERYTHING IN THEIR POWER to make this a smooth and positive experience for me. We spoke at lease twice a week via email and phone. Discussing pre-op, post-op, surgery center, etc... I met Dr. Kotler one day before my surgery. Words can't describe Dr. Kotler... From his bedside manner and kindness, to his intelligence, knowledge, and experience I knew I was in the right hands. I was looking for the best and I had found exactly the best surgeon I was looking for. Dr. Kotler is very conservative with what needs to be done, if you don't need it he will frankly tell you that you don't.! He strives for natural results and I'm telling you this while looking at myself in the mirror on day two of my recovery. I LOVE MY NOSE! The surgery center and Dr. Kotler's team are fantastic, I was taken right in and my warm bed was ready for me prior to surgery. They took amazing care of me!! Once I woke up, I had NO pain, I had the small nasal breathing tubes which were actually invented by Dr. Kotler himself to help you breath without any problems at all. I slept last night with no congestion or pain. He called me personally to check on me that night and I told him "I can't believe how amazing I feel." My nasal breathing tubes and the packings were taken out today and I got the first glimpse of Dr. Kotler's exquisite results. He explain again today all that was done internally to my nose (you will have no stitches on the outside of your nose) as everything is done internally, I could not stop smiling. With a plastic splint on my nose and very minor bruising, my husband and I went out today for lunch and some shopping in Beverly Hills. In the end, I ask you to please contact his office if you're discouraged after reading any negative comment on any board. Dr. Kotler and his staff will do everything they can to accommodate you and make you feel comfortable with your decision. Know, that there are always people out there who are always dissatisfied, but remember, you don't know who they are,and what their conditions were to began with. Call the Doctor and ask questions so that you can gain your confidence back!! DR. KOTLER AND HIS TEAM ARE THE BEST IN BEVERLY HILLS.
