I wish I never got my rhinoplasty from Dr Athre. HE IS FULL of empty promises. When I FIRST had my surgery, he had hounded me to leave him a great review and that he relied on this positive feedback. I had JUST had my bandages taken off when he started in on this. Of course - he wants you to leave a great review before you start seeing the true results of what he did to your face! Let me tell you once he gets your money and does his half assed rhinoplasty and you have a problem? He will avoid you - you are on your own. He will not return phone calls, emails, his staff will ignore you - everything you can imagine. Pictures speak for themselves. One side of my tip of nose is higher than the other. I have a pointy knot at the very tip, it is so uneven I am ashamed to even be seen in public. My left nostril is deformed (just look at the pictures). I also have a pollybeak deformity because of him. My nostrils are uneven and I have scar tissue poking out inside my nostrils. It even hard to breathe. The tip of my nose is incredibly droopy. I should have avoided this man like the plague but I put my trust into him, and this is what I get. Dr. Athre will DO NOTHING TO MAKE IT RIGHT IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM. REMEMBER THAT. FIND A SKILLED PLASTIC SURGEON WHO KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING. DON'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I DID!!
He is a hack run for your life, who gives someone valium, ambien, vicoden before treatment and expects them to make an informed decision mid procedure. The quality of his work has lived on in my face.
Excellent Doctor who really cares about his work... I'm not finished yet. We had a few bumps in the road with an allergic reaction to stitches. Hopefully all turns out well. Had a lower face and neck lift.
I went to four different consultations until I decided to go with Dr. Athre. Best decision I ever made! He may seem like a little much for some personalities but he is very intelligent and good at what he does. I decided to go with him because he didn't try to sell me or tell me what I want to hear, he gave me honest facts and realistic expectations. I was a very diffucult rhinoplasty case and my nose is absolutely perfect now. If you're considering rhinoplasty, just go and talk with him! He specializes in revisions so I felt at ease knowing he's highly skilled in this area. This is a huge decision because it's your FACE.. I'm so thankful I put my trust in Dr. Athre.
Wonderful Experience. Every time I look in the mirror I am grateful of the excellent job Dr. Athre did! He truly cares about you as a person and brings your inner beauty onto your face.
I've had two surgeries by Dr. Athre. He is one of the most caring doctors I know. He was always there when I needed him. I trust him completely.
Horrible excuse for a surgeon, never showed up for scheduled procedure on day of surgery. Do your homework and find a qualified surgeon
No surgeon can compete with Dr. Athre. He is by far the most compassionate doctor that I have ever met. How it is difficult to find a doctor who's not only a Master in revision rhinoplasty procedure, but is also a down-to-earth people person. Dr. Athre is an epitome of this rare combination . I feel that I am lucky that I have crossed his path and discovered such a talented and skillful surgeon.
This doctor screwed up my nose, it looks horrible. He left me deformed. He's a nice doctor but don't let that be one of your deciding factors. Worst decision of my life. If you want mediocre results or worse, a deformed nose, go see this doctor.
From the moment we walked in I knew that I had found an absolute gem of a doctor. I have been a Google monster on this topic for several years after I have visited many of the top name big doctors in this city I was discourage from having any work done by their arrogance, by their ridiculous prices, and the overwhelming sadness I felt leaving their offices. After meeting with Dr.Athre I am so convinced that I have found the right doctor for me!!!! I am so excited and thrilled..... I had prior work done by a very well established doctor prior to this. A doctor I trusted and adored...but he retired and took with him his magic. Dr.Athre,thank you for bringing back the magic and the intelligence, I am looking so forward to my surgeries with you! And thank you for being kind! An aging woman is a very delicate being!
I was very impressed with the Dr. and he was extremely informative and told me what to expect. Although I did not do a video because of my shyness, I now have more confidence with my facelift. He did an good job and I am pleased with the results - it has been a month now.
Thank you does not even come close for the great job you have completed and all the emotional support...I am so thrilled and excited to have my completed nasal profile and I can breath well with no infection that used to brother me...I rate you a perfect 10 ,thanks to you and your staff..
very angry with the results,he not only showed up late to surgery,He screwed the it up...My nose was nice looking before ,he left my bridge to look like it has dent in it that travels at a slant....I can not understand why he said he could not tell the actually amount of damage that my nose had internally ,that once he got into the surgery that it had some tissue that had to removed form inside the sinus...it has been over two years ago....
I loved my experience. It was so easy and he walked me through every step. My nose came out wonderfully and I just can't thank him enough.
I had surgery to revise a scar many years ago and it was only partially successful. I consulted with several other surgeons since then, but they said they couldn't help. I was finally referred to Dr. Athre by another plastic surgeon who said that he thought Dr. Athre would be the best for this kind of surgery (and he was right). I have been very happy with the results. I wish I'd found Dr. Athre sooner. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
I had a full face lift with full laser resurfacing of my face. The results are amazing and I am extremely happy. Dr. Athre spent hours explaining everything to me. I know it is normal to be anxious prior to surgery, but I don't think anyone could have explained my options and prepared me for surgery like Dr. Athre. His staff is awesome.
I underwent rhino/septoplasty 4 months ago with Dr. Athre. He is wonderful! I went in for a consultation and was immediately impressed. He spent at least an hour with me, answering questions and explaining the surgery procedure. I was really nervous about surgery, but he is very knowledgable and eased my fears. Recovery was realtively easy and I am amazed by the results! He really knows what he is doing!! Choose Dr. Athre!
Dr Athre repaired my septal perforation, this was my sixth surgery! Previous ones left me stuffy, dripping, whistling and much pain and discomfort. None of the doctors I went to said they could fix it a couple doctors told me they knew if anyone could fix it that would Dr Athre! I consulted with him and he was so confident he could help me! I had the surgery and It was the best experience with my nose and Dr Athre dis the most work taking ear cartilage and inner lip tissue for grafting my new septum to repair it. He also took the time to fully explain how I needed to take care of my nose with NeilMed sinus saline rinse in the morning and saline drops four or more times a day! He told me keeping it moist was key to my healing! No one ever explained that to me. His staff was so kind and caring and I have to say it was the beat surgery and best result I've had after all my previous procedures! I think Dr Athre is a very talented and gifted doctor and I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of nose surgery!
I got a mini face lift and there was very little difference after the healing process was complete. I was very disappointed.
I went to doctor Athre to have a consulation about revision rhinoplasty surgery. Doctor Athre was very nice, patient and gave us so much information that beyong our expection. I really appreciate his honesty. He took his time examing me and giving me diagnosis and advisd me not to have any further surgery at that point. His explanation released my concern and I felt much better after consulation. He spent at least 30 min with us, patiently explaining everything and it was free. We end up feeling we owe him something, but he didn't charge. I have to say this experience with Dr. Athre is totally beyond our expection, although I didn't have surgery, I can tell he is a very good doc, I would definitely go to him in the future if I need any help.
Great Doctor! Very thorough and knowledgeable. Great bedside manners and was readily available. Took time to hear me and help me out. I would recommend him to everyone.
I had a great result from my surgery!!! Dr. Athre and everyone in his office are wonderful!!
Dr.Athre did Otoplasty for me and shortened the length of my ear lobe and made it look proportionate. He was very kind and patient.He explained the whole procedure to me and his staff was very courteous. All my family members are very pleased with the outcome and tell me that I look atleast 20years younger. Only an amazing surgeon can get such amazing results!
Here is what you can expect from Dr. Athre and his staff -Excellent courteous serviceClear idea and understanding of your procedure because Dr. Athre takes the time to explain using graphics and diagramsCustomized options for your particular age, skin type etc. (truly amazing)Excellent postop resultsClear idea of what to expect after the procedureI am very pleased with my results. I would definitely recomment him to my sister or my brother.
I visited Dr Athre for a consultation regarding my fine lines and developing wrinkles. We discussed my options and decided together what would be best for me. He took the time to explain the process, what to expect during and after the procedure and what he expected my results to be. I was really nervous but he did a great job making me comfortable AND I have fabulous results!
After years of using injectables, spending lots of money on fillers to even out my lip volume, I decided to go with a permanent lip implant. Dr. Athre and his staff spent a great deal of time answering my questions. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional, making me feel at ease. I wouldn't hesitate to refer my family or friends to Dr. Athre.
After years of searching for someone whom could undertake the difficult task of removing cartledge from my growing in my sinus cavity and correst devaite septum ...I am happy he eased my concerns and corrected the ease to breath again and look my best.
