Back in 2008 i had seen Dr Goldstein for nasal surgery due to horrible breathing issues. i had that goofy bump on the bridge of my nose also and my nose was droppy and pointy. Since i was getting my breathing fixed i figured i would get my whole nose done (cosmetically). Dr Goldstein is a nice guy and seems like he knows what hes talking about but the surgeries were not good AT ALL. My breathing was a little better but my nose looked the EXACT SAME. The bump was still there and cosmetically nothing was done to my nose. Not only did my insurance pay for the internal surgery of my nose, i had to pay about $3700 out of pocket because of the rhinoplasty that i was suppose to get. At my first follow up visit after he took the cast off, he assured me that the bump would go away and it was just swollen. Well it never went away and my nose was the exact same!! A few months later i went back because i wanted him to fix my nose and do what he was suppose to do the first time. Well the same exact results happened after the 2nd surgery. he told me the same thing about it being swollen and all that stuff and that it takes 10-18 months to see a final result. After all that i just gave up with it. I was so mad and upset about the whole thing i just said screw this. But my breathing started getting worse and worse around 2010-2011. I refused to go back to Dr Goldstein so i went to my former ENT in South Phila. He told me that i needed surgery again. I didnt wanna do it again for a 3rd time so i put it off. That was in 2011. Then this year 2013 i went back to him because i couldnt deal with the breathing issues no more and i wanted my nose fixed properly. So in 07/2013 i had another surgery! I got a rhinoplasty, septoplasty, my deviated septum fixed a turbinate reduction and my tip redone. Oh and i had to pay another $4000 out of pocket. The whole experience was 10000% different. After the surgery i had black eyes because he had to break my nose bone to reset it. I had no black eyes AT ALL from Dr goldsteins surgery. Also the doctor told me that there was massive scar tissue in my nose due to the surgeries i had in 2008 and he couldnt figure out what was done to my nose. At my first post-op visit when the cast came off this time, my nose looked 1000% differnt. It was amazing. I couldnt believe the awesome work this Dr did. My bump was gone my tip wasnt drooping. My nose was extremely swollen but you can 10000% see the difference in my nose even with the massive swelling. All i can say is that i was extremely upset about the surgeries i got from Dr Goldstein. hes a nice guy and all but i would never ever recommend him to ANYONE for rhinoplasty or any nasal surgery.
