Lack of concern

Dr. Gastman did my rhinoplasy six months ago. I'm aware that results change drastically even a year or two after surgery, but I can already see that I will not get the results we discussed (this has since been confirmed by one of his colleagues at CC). I also had a serious complication during recovery which was ignored. His assistant is unhelpful to say the least and very rude. I waited hours at every visit and often had to beg to get an appointment when problems arose. He's unconcerned, too busy, distracted, and not thorough. I'm moving on with another surgeon who plans to do their best to fix everything that went wrong under Dr. Gastman's care.

I thank God for Dr. Gastman

I had a rare bone tumor/cyst in my temple, brow, and eye socket. I was referred to Dr. Gastman because of his expertise in this area. Dr. Gastman and team did an amazing job, the mobility and appearance of the area is totally normal, despite the large amount of bone that was removed. The reconstruction success has amazed everyone, even other physicians. Dr. Gastman's research, groundbreaking techniqes, expertise made this possible. How lucky I am.

Poor bedside manner

I didn't care for the bedside manner of Mr. Gastman. He was talking on the phone loudly in a hall way in a high traffic area instead of resuming his conversations in his office; I found very unprofessional and because I showed annoyance his attitude towards us reflected his poor bedside manner. His physicians assistant was also very arrogant and disrespectful He claims he could do the surgery with out slides which most doctors use to find the area and pinpoint the surgical point to eradicate the cancer. He made us wait 45 minutes before seeing him and 15 minutes before seeing the physician's assistant.
