    A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
    Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. 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.

Poor bedside manner

I was referred by my PCP but was not expecting to see this provider, I'm not sure how I was never told that I wouldn't be seeing the other provider in the office. We had already checked in and had been roomed at that point, I wanted the concert related to the referral addressed so we wanted anyways. We waited for 45 minutes before he came in to the room. He asked his questions and when you answered it was clear when he wasn't interested in your response when he started talking over you like you weren't talking. I don't appreciate disrespect. Sometimes it's just that personalities don't jive, I don't know that this is the case, he may be a wonderful doctor, we will not be seeing him again though.

Bad bedside manners

I was refered to Dr Spoto by my primary care doctor. I was not impressed at all. He has bad bedside manners. He was very rude and would hardly look at me. He would blow me off anytime I would ask a question. The first words out of his mouth when he entered the room was "Why are you here?" When trying to explain, he would interupt by saying rudely "that has nothing to do with it." He only wanted to focus on one thing and one thing only and THAT had nothing to do with why I was there. I will not be returning and will be looking for another ENT.
