Question ENT completing Rhinoplasty and septum? Is this a bad idea?

My ENT has suggested septoplasty and can do rhinoplasty as well. I asked about how many rhinoplasty's he completes a year and was informed that he has a 20 year career and has completed 300-400 over this period of time and currently completes 15-25 a year now.
I would like some feedback on if this is enough, or should I look elsewhere. He seems pleasant and likeable and he has before and after photos. I am just concerned that this is not his specialty so to speak and this is a big event in my life the last thing I want to do is pick the wrong physician. I am considering this because my insurance will pay for most of the septoplasty after deductible with his office. Thanks so much in advance

Default credentials

'Advanced training' in botox was likely a weekend-long course. I wouldn't make to much about someone's credentials. Interview a lot of surgeons and the who is the best and the best for you will become apparent.
