Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.

Stay away from David Seltzer

David Seltzer has no compassion for his patients. He takes his time getting back to you on test results. I saw him back in 2010 and I was suffering really bad with my left ear. It was full, it had a lot of pressure in it, I was light headed, dizzy, my balance was off, I could hear my heart beating in that ear, my voice echo when I spoke, heard my foot steps when walking etc, I had loss some hearing in both ears, more on my left and I was at my weakest part of my life and I wasn't getting any answers from him. I came in his office on day crying and freaking out about my ear and he had the nerve to tell me and my husband To Chill Out- Get A Hold of Myself and to learn to Deal with it and to get hearing aids. I never went back to is office and when I was there, he never bother to send me to a specialist to see what was wrong , so I went to another ENT doctor who found me a great doctor at UCLA who told me what was wrong with me. I didn't have to deal with it or get hearing aids. It turned out I had a rare hearing disorder called Superior Semicircular Canal Dehiscence.

Dr. Seltzer was the worst ear, nose and throat specialist that I have ever seen. He accused me of using QTIPS to remove ear wax which I did not. Spent little time with me and could not wait to get me out of his office.

Not a people person

This doctor didn't really want to hear my symptoms. He did a very brief check and then sent me in for a test with a different doctor (separate office on a different day). Then he told me to call back to find out the results. When the results were inconclusive, he told me that he did not want to look into it further. He was not helpful, and my problem was not resolved nor was it diagnosed at all.
