 |  Disappointed Nose Patient  |  show details
Nov 18th, 2014

Going to Dr. Apostolides was hands down the WORST financial, physical and emotional decision of my life. I broke my nose pretty bad playing softball in high school and had to get surgery. The ENT doc did a pretty good job fixing my nose up, however; it was a bit round and ski-sloped for my face and my septum also skewed making my nostrils look uneven. So a couple years later I decided to get a septoplasty to help my breathing and fix the asymmetry on my nostrils. This surgery pretty much did nothing for me so I let my nose be. Fast forward 7 years and saving money, the asymmetry continued to bother me so I figured maybe I could finally get it fixed as well as take a bit of the round ski slope look away. After interviewing 6 doctors I went with Dr. Apostolides because he truly made me feel so good at the procedure whereas other doctors told me I should not do it or left me feeling uneasy about the procedure. I WISH I HAD LISTEN TO THE OTHER DOCTORS. I am now left with an even more disfigured nose. My nostrils are way more uneven and now I still have a round ski slope nose but its larger and more turned up. Everything I hated about my nose is more amplified and to top it off I am in constant pain with a recurring infection. The nylon suture is causing me a great deal of discomfort and it needs to come out so now I have to pay a great deal for another doctor to fix his mess. Dr Apostolides told me that he wanted to make me happy and he was going to fix my nose for free but he LIED then left me hanging. He sent me an email telling me he wasn't going to do the surgery and that I have body dysmorphia. WHAT A SLAP IN THE FACE. I will post photos of the aftermath and you can see for yourself that my nose is clearly worse so its pretty sad that he is playing the finger pointing game. This shows how much he truly cares about his patients..... Everyone in my life who knows how I looked before compared to how I look now are shocked how he left me and even more so how he has handle this entire situation. DON'T LET HIM NEAR YOUR FACE!!!

I found Dr.Apostolides or as I like to call him my Angel, through the web. I desperately needed a breast reduction because of a bad back and neck. From the moment I entered his office I felt comfortable and knew that I was in good hands. His staff is wonderful. I was treated with professionalism and kindness. Thanks to them I feel so much better. 1 week after surgery I am feeling like a new woman. I cannot thank Dr. Apostolides enough for helping me when I needed help. It was hard to find anyone that would deal with Medicare. He never hesitated once to give me the assistance I needed. I am 52 years of age and have been in a lot of added pain due to the size of my breasts. His staff was just as amazing as he was. And Scripps Hospital took such good care of me too. God Bless them all for what they have done for me. I am relieved and happier now. During my care I also received care from Dr. Krant. He too is amazing, caring and kind. What a great experience to have them do my reduction. Gratefully yours, Brenda Marsh
