I was most comfortable with Dr.Pontell's experience with Fraxel. His training, personality, and skill made Fraxel doable for me. His genuine care and concern for the patient was evident both before and after the procedure. Outstanding doctor.

My experience with Dr.Pontell was great. The process from the consultation to the surgery and post surgery was thorough. Dr. Pontell kind and genuine personality made it easier for me to have him do my rhinoplasty surgery. I would anyone who is interested in doing this surgery to go with him. The front desk also does a great job in setting up the appointments and following up with you before and after the surgery.

My entire experience with dr. Pontell and his staff has been excellent. I felt that I got great advice and options at my initial consultation and then the scheduling and follow up was faultless. The day of surgery went as expected and the procedure was practically painless and unstressful. Dr. Pontell's after surgery care was wonderful. He answered all my questions and concerns and was patient and understanding and reassuring. The results are wonderful ... I have been told I look 10 years younger and I could not be happier.

I had an exceptional experience with Dr Pontell and his staff. I had a mini facelift done and am so pleased with the results! Dr Pontell has a wonderful manner and is very patient and clear when explaining things. He called me a couple of times after the procedure to make sure everything was okay, as I was having some side effects from the Tylenol with codeine. I appreciated his concern. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone considering facial cosmetic surgery.

I had the fraxel treatment done for acne scars. My acne scars were pretty bad on my cheeks and a few on my forehead. I was always so insecure sbout my face due to the scars. I met with Dr. Pontel to talk about the fraxel treatment. He informed me of how the procedure would work. During the procedure, Dr. Pontel was very caring and constantly asked me how I was making out since it was a little painful. It has now been two weeks since I had my fraxel treatment done and I could not be any happier. My scars are barely noticeable and Dr, Pontel did say that it would take up to 6 months for the full results, however, for the first time in awhile my face looks and feels perfect to me!

Rhinoplasty is something that I have wanted for 15 years. In that time, I had consults with 3 different doctors and spent hours researching and obsessing over the internet..but I resigned to just positioning myself strategically in every picture and dreaming of the perfect profile. That was until I met Dr. Pontell. On a whim, I scheduled a consult and after 15 mins with the doctor, my surgery was scheduled. I never looked back and now I cannot stop looking in the mirror. Dr. Pontell is just as compassionate as he is professional and his bedside manner is as natural as his artistry. Kay and his staff made scheduling seamless and convienient and Dr Pontell took care of the rest. I am only 12 days out from surgery and I am back to my daily routine. My swelling and bruising was minimal and my pain was never at any point unbearable. I have no regrets regarding my surgery besides not finding Dr Pontell sooner.

Aug 16th, 2015

Both the doctor and the staff at the medical center were extremely nice and very helpful. They made sure I was comfortable at all times before and after the surgery and answered any questions I had.

Dr. Pontell is extremely professional and an excellent surgeon. He is very thorough and takes time to sit down and explain everything he is going to do. He answers questions and never rushes you. His staff is also very pleasant, friendly and professional. I would recommend Dr. Pontell.

Getting my rhinoplasty was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I was extremely nervous to get this surgery and was really close to not getting one, but Dr. Pontell made me feel like I was in the best hands possible! I trusted him completely and knew that my nose would come out perfectly. I am so happy that I chose Dr. Pontell. Recovery was very easy and I am so happy.

Highly recommend Dr. Pontell ! Mini lift results are beautiful (better than expected) and very natural looking. Dr. Pontell offered pragmatic recommendations during consult; the surgery and post-op care went exactly as planned. He kindly phoned me each day (including over weekend while on holiday with his family) to ensure I was ok. Dr. Pontell is truly an artist and I highly recommend him to anyone considering any aesthetic facial surgery !!

My first impression of Dr. Pontell was one of a knowledgeable, skilled, and compassionate human being. He surpassed even my perfectionist expectations when he performed a mini face lift on me. His attention to patient instructions for care before and after the procedure, kind and caring manner before, during, and after the procedure, and excellent surgical skills have made me very happy with the results. Two months after the procedure I see a much younger looking me with no visible scarring. If you are thinking of having work done on your face, I highly recommend Dr. Jonathan Pontell. He is an excellent and highly skilled plastic surgeon and one of the nicest human beings I have ever met.

Before the surgery, I would have liked more information about what to expect regarding recovery, such as how much numbness there would be and how long it would take to go away. But doctor and staff were always available for questions and concerns and results were good.

Doctor's Response

We're glad to hear your experience and cosmetic results met your expectations. At the same time, we'd like to thank you for your constructive feedback as well. Although we understand why it would be helpful to know precisely how long it would take numbness to wear off after surgery, it’s difficult, to predict recovery times and numbness, as every patient reacts differently. We do want you to be comfortable through the recovery process and the duration of numbness however, so we try, diligently, to be accessible to answer any questions you may have. We go to great lengths to provide the best possible care to all of our patients through the entire procedure as well as the recovery process and hope to have the opportunity to care for you again in the future .

I had wanted to get my nose altered for many years but first never really thought I would do it, then was too busy raising kids, but finally decided to look into it for real. My nose was crooked and over projected, among other things. Finally went down the road and started the process. Met with 4 doctors, all with good reviews. But after meeting with them, some more than once. Dr. Pontell was the only one that felt right, for many reasons. He was easy to talk to, answered my questions. Most importantly to me was that he specialized in the face, his before and after pics knocked it out of the park, and he had so many years of experience that I felt it was just a routine thing. Thank goodness, because it turned out that my deviated septum was also fractured and a bit more complicated. I shudder to think what a doctor with lesser experience would have done. I am a bit over 4 weeks out from surgery now and I am thrilled with the results. Wish I had not waited so long to do this, but time and life at this point led me to Dr. Pontell, and I would not have wanted anyone else. I found Kay to be wonderful and very professional, and the only reason I gave 3 stars to ease of appointment is that Dr. Pontell is a very busy guy so sometimes appointment times are tight. But everything else exceeded my expectations, and I look forward to facing life with my newly improved nose. It is the nose I feel I was always meant to have. Thank you Dr. Pontell.

Dr.Jonathan Pontell of Media, PA was the fifth plastic surgeon I consulted about a facelift (these included the advertised "top" recommended Philadelphia and Mainline physicians). After one visit I knew I finally had found the surgeon I was seeking.The procedure more than met my expectations, and I am extremely pleased with the results. Along with his medical expertise, Dr. Pontell is a caring and thorough physician - he and his staff put me at ease and made me confident that I had made the right choice. I hope this recommendation will help others save the time and money I spent doing my research. And thank you again, Dr. Pontell - I look forward to being your patient again. Karen '71

Dr. Pontell performed my mini facelift six weeks ago. The recovery was faster and easier than I anticipated. At 5 days post-op I went out with a scarf to cover some bruising on the sides of my neck, and no one noticed anything. I did get compliments on my hair, and general comments that I"looked good." Two weeks later I was out with my daughter and someone thought we were sisters! Every time I look in the mirror I am so glad I did this -- it was worth every penny. No more jowls, no more extra neck skin. Dr. Pontell does seamless work -- there are no visible scars, and everything healed beautifully. And the final result is completely natural. The surgery didn't change my features, it just took away the effects of aging, probably about 10 yrs.worth.

Having decided to explore the possibility of a cosmetic procedure and, after researching plastic surgeons in the Philadelphia area, I selected Dr. Pontell as my surgeon of choice. Dr. Pontell was open and honest during the consultation visit regarding my expectations and what I hoped to achieve and I made the decision to have him perform a mini-facelift. First, I cannot thank Dr. Pontell enough for working with me to schedule the procedure given the fact that I was working with time constraints and was not the easiest patient to schedule. Simply put, he made it happen. Second, due to actions on my part and my part alone, I developed necrosis which has taken a bit of time to resolve. During this entire process, Dr. Pontell has been attentive, calm, caring, reassuring, and patient. Although I did not have call him directly, I very much appreciated being given mobile and home telephone numbers where I could reach him day or night – 7 days a week. It was comforting to know I was a phone call away from reaching him if I needed to do so. I am thrilled with the final result and would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Pontell to anyone considering a surgical or cosmetic procedure. He is a credit to his profession.

Dr. Pontell spent ample time with me and my husband during my consultation for rhinoplasty. He did not try and rush the free consultation, but instead was willing to engage in small talk with my husband and answer all questions pertaining to my concerns. Dr. Pontell used computer imaging to manipulate my photo and showed me how I would look after the nose job. The nose Dr. Pontell created with the computer program fit my face perfectly and did not appear to be the typical up-turned nose so common after a rhinoplasty. After my consultation I decided that due to Dr. Pontell’s calming and thorough demeanor I would move forward with a nose job. I scheduled my surgery and unfortunately had to cancel my original date and reschedule. Dr. Pontell’s office manager Kay was very accommodating and kind during this process. My rhinoplasty went wonderfully and my mom (who took me for surgery) was extremely impressed with Dr. Pontell’s attentiveness after surgery at the hospital. Dr. Pontell called me that night to make sure I was doing alright. He gave me his personal cell phone number and urged me to call with any concerns. I did not need to reach out to him because any aches, pains, swelling, or bleeding were fully expected due to Dr. Pontell’s in depth explanation of post-surgery occurrences. I am approximately 3 months post-op and am absolutely thrilled with the results! My nose looks identical to the original pre-op photo Dr. Pontell created. I do experience some minor swelling in the mornings (it's only been 3 months so this is expected), but aside from this I believe my nose is basically perfect! I highly recommend Dr. Pontell. He is a kind, thorough, patient, and excellent plastic surgeon.

Dr.Pontell met all my criteria, and came highly regarded. From my consultatation I knew he was my surgeon. He was very realistic with what to expect, and was very honest with what was best for my face. He is not about surgery for the sake of surgery. He truly wants the patient to look his or her best at the end of the procedure. His focus was achieving the best nose for my face with an emphasis on symmetry. I had surgery seven weeks ago, and I am already thrilled with the outcome. Dr. Pontell was wonderful the day of surgery and after. His follow up care is excellent, and he is always available to answer any concerns. He truly strives to help his patient's achieve the very best.

I spent months researching and consulting with 4 different specialists/surgeons and made the easy decision to have my septo/rhinoplasty done by Dr. Pontell. It was important for me to find someone board certified who specialized in facial plastic surgery. Dr. Pontell's credentials are amazing - he truly is a gifted surgeon. I can breathe better for the first time in my life, and my nose looks natural and not at all overdone. I highly recommend and would return to Dr. Pontell in the future for other needs. Thank you Dr. Pontell!

I recently had a mini-face lift and eyelid surgery done by Dr. Pontell and could not be any happier with the results. It has been a life changing experience for me. My only regret is not having done this sooner! Dr. Pontell is a very talented surgeon and I highly recommend him! I will not hesitate to return to him for other procedures.1

Dr. Pontell is undoubtedly a gifted surgeon. He came highly recommended by two friends so I felt confident with my choice. He was consistently attentive and responsive to my needs. The procedure went great, I felt adequately prepared for the recovery and I had no complications. My nose looks fantastic. People who know I had it done love the way the new nose softens my face but does not look overdone. I will say that Dr. Pontell is more of a low-key guy which is different from the over the top cosmetic surgeons you generally see on TV. Overall I would 100% recommend Dr. Pontell and I am thrilled with the results.

I recently had a rhinoplasty done by Dr. Pontell, and I am amazed at the results!! He gave me such an amazing nose that actually fits my face and looks so natural. It's the nose I wish I would have been born with. I was very nervous about getting this procedure done and he was so understanding and answered all of my questions. I highly recommend this surgeon!!

I spent 40 years with a nose I hated and a problem breathing through my nose. Dr. Pontell gave me a beautiful nose and cured my breathing problem. It is not an understatement to say he changed my life. He is also a very sweet and patient and not in any way pushy Dr. I feel blessed to have had him operate on me!

I researched plastic surgeons and felt Dr. Pontell was the right Dr. for my needs. I am very pleased with my mini-face lift and eyelid surgery. I plan to return for Fraxel surgery soon. Dr. Pontell does not push you into procedures and the hour drive one way was definitely worth it. I am so glad I found Dr. Pontell.

I found Dr. Pontell to be not only a gifted artist, but a warm, kind, and understanding person. He is the best at his craft. He provides thorough explanations and is as compassionate and professional as a physician could be. I come from a health care quality management background and am an RN, so you can be sure I don't heap praise on doctors unless it is well deserved. I am thrilled with my results! My husband also chimed in that he really likes Dr. Pontell and respects his work. I traveled 2 hours each way to see the doctor and it was well worth the trip.

I have dealt with many physicians and multiple plastic surgeons. Dr. Pontell is by far the most skilled, talented and caring doctor I have ever worked with. He is a true "artist" and perfectionist. If you want to work with a real professional, look no further then Dr. Jonathan Pontell. He is an artisan and I would recommend him to anyone who wants only the best! Thank you Dr. Pontell.

I recently switched to getting Botox from another place to Dr. Pontell and was surprised to discover that not all Botox providers are the same. The results are much much better with Dr. Pontell. I realize there is definitely an art to giving a Botox treatment!

I had a rhinoplasty by another doctor who is very well known and was unhappy with the results and the doctor told me he couldn't do any better. I went to Dr. Pontell and he told me he could improve my nose and the result was a HUGE improvement. I would never trust another doctor for plastic surgery again. Dr. Pontell is a master!!

I had been going to Dr. Pontell for Botox treatments and then decided on a face lift and eye job with him and was ecstatic with the results. I look amazing. Definitely only very good experiences with Dr. Pontell.

Dr. Pontell gave me a mini-lift and bleph...with pleasing and natural results. He is down-to-earth and does not try to push more surgery than is really needed...that made me trust him. He did a wonderful job of minimizing any incisions. I will very likely go back to him for another short procedure.

Dr. Pontell is amazing. He did a beautiful job on my facelift. He is a very very sweet and gentle person. After asking around about plastic surgeons he is the ONLY one I could not find anyone to say anything bad about. I think that says it all!

I first met Dr. Pontell when he gave me a nose job a few years ago and recently went back to him for a face lift and an eye job. The results are amazing!!! Dr. Pontell is a brilliant, talented and caring surgeon!! He is a very gentle man and not pushy at all. His work looks natural and is flawless. He has a great reputation among doctors and non-doctors as the nurses in the hospital raved about his work as well!!! He is the only plastic surgeon I would trust to work on me!!!!

AWESOME AND LIKE NO OTHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! show details AWESOME AND LIKE NO OTHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I found Dr. Pontell because a general plastic surgeon sent me to him for a revision stating he is the best around. He did an awesome job on me and has since operated on a number of people I know and they are all incredibly pleased with their results and with Dr. Pontell's kind and gentle manner. He is amazingly talented and the fact that another surgeon said he is known to be the best around speaks volumes for me!!!!!!!
