For those of you who take seriously the research process we are obligated to as patients in deciding upon our providers, and for those of you who are, as I was, overwhelmed by the number of choices out there, I want to share with you that Dr. Constantinides is a true find. I was as thorough in my research as anyone could possibly be, as a rather complicated revisionary rhinoplasty case, and in the end, torn between a few choices that seemed equal on the surface, I went with my gut. Dr. Constantinides lived up to my highest expectations, proving to be absolutely honest, straight-forward, ethical, thoughtful, and meticulous. Above all, he is a skilled surgeon who knows his own talent, presents accurately what beauty he has to offer you, but also knows his own limitations, and he is not afraid to tell it to you like it is -- up front. If you listen, truly take in what he is saying, and engage him in the dialog he invites, he will present you with an accurate and realistic portrayal of the results he will achieve -- and he will achieve it. He will stand behind his work 100%, and is admirable in the degree of responsibility he takes in your care. His entire staff will make you feel welcome, understood, and embraced. They seem to understand intuitively how difficult it can be for a patient to face these types of surgery, and they respond to the anxiety and terror they know you feel with kindness and sensitivity. I was a particularly difficult case requiring intensive follow-up and extraordinary patience on the part of both of us. And to this day, he lets me know his commitment to my care remains unshaken. I can count on one hand the number of doctors I have encountered in my life with this level of compassion, commitment, and integrity; and I can count on one finger the number of them who were surgeons. Choose Dr. Constantinides, and you will be in the best of hands. I know it, because I lived it. Just sit down and talk with him you will immediately understand what I am talking about. He is the real thing without a false bone in his body.
