Fantastic doctor

I grew up overseas and when I was 10 I fractured my nose pretty badly. After having a barbaric fracture treatment which was not a treatment really (they broke my nose even more) I have developed a fear and an anxiety towards the doctors. For the next 25 years I breathed only through my mouth and I couldn't take more than one sip from a straw a time when drinking. Over the last couple of years I started to snore and whistle with my nose. My friend talked me into going and seeing a professional. I heard of Dr. Matthew Kauffman's work from other very satisfied patients of his. Because my surgery would have been not just cosmetic but to repair my deviated septum I was looking for a double board certified ENT and plastic and reconstructive surgeon and was happy to find out he was both . After consulting with him we were able to identify my goals. The software he used allowed me to see final results. I loved the fact that he was very conservative. He understood that the cosmetic changes I was looking to make must be subtle as I wasn't looking to change my appearance but to correct the imperfections that were created after my first surgery yeas ago. He assured me that if I choose to go with him and his team I would have a very positive experience. About 3 days after our consultation I decided that I could no longer live in fear and I needed to develop trust and faith in doctors again and I felt Dr . Kaufman would be the one to help me overcome this challenge. The day of surgery the OR staff was wonderful as well as the anesthesiologist who made sure my first general anesthesia experience would be a good one. Walking into this OR I was once again a scared 10 year old but this time I was guided by wonderful, understanding and caring staff and walking out of there I was a brave and strong woman. The surgery went well. It's been a week and the splint is off and I could not be happier with the results. My nose is still swollen but I can see and feel a huge improvement already. No longer bruised. The best part is that none of my colleagues even noticed that I had cosmetic work done. So from the bottom of my heart I would like to thank Dr. Kauffman for everything he has done for me as well as his very professional staff.
