- Plastic Surgery
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.
The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.
An otolaryngologist is more commonly referred to as an ENT, someone that can treat medical issues you may be having with you ears, nose, or throat. This is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions of the ear, nose, sinuses, larynx (voice box), mouth, throat, head, and neck. These doctors treat patients through both medical and surgical means. For instance, an otolaryngologist may treat an obstruction of the nasal passage, caused by malformation of the nose, through rhinoplasty.

I had a very similar experience to the other commenters. I went to see Dr. Klausner for sinus issues and he became fixated on my "jaw clenching" habit. He was very rude, aggressive, and cagey. He ran many strange tests, which after I have read the other commenters, I now feel were unnecessary. I couldn't get a straight answer from him about his findings and my diagnosis. In fact, when I returned for a follow up visit after having a CT scan of my sinuses done as well as a thyroid scan (which he had zero interest in talking about even though the results showed abnormalities) he thrust the results into my lap told me to read them and that he would be back. After waiting for nearly an hour I asked the nurse how much longer it would be, and told her if it was going to be much longer i would have to feed the parking meter. At that the doctor came in and was ruder than ever, and when I began asking questions (because he was fixated on my "jaw clenching" and teaching me to "be nice to my jaw" and I was there for sinus issues) he became extremely rude! So rude in fact, that I did something I have never done, I rose out of my seat, said "I am done here." and left him mid-rude-sentence. A terrible experience. I would NOT recommend this doctor.
I have never written a bad review for a Dr. before. Dr. Klausner made an inappropriate sexual comment to me within 5 minutes of meeting me. I felt creepy about the way he touched me when he looked into my ears and nose. I wish I would have listened to my "gut" and bolted out of the exam room. I am embarassed that I stayed and tolerated his unacceptable behavior. He recommended tests that I didn't need and completely mis-diagnosed my condition until I told him what I thought it was (fluid behind my ear drums following a recent sinus infection). I started to cry as I was driving home from his office, because I realized that I had been "slimed', and especially because I stayed and tolerated his behavior (and paid for it, too). Absolutely the worst medical experience I have ever had.
Bullied me, refused to listen, sprang tests on me without my permission or any explanation, sadistically swabbed my throat with anesthetic without warning me what would happen and ran out of the room, leaving me to cough and choke, unable to swallow. He spent the whole time trying to sell me on an expensive procedure. I got no answer to the question I'd come to ask, no benefit, and he charged my insurance almost $4,000!
