I have a deviated septum and saw Dr. Menick for a consult only. He was completely professional and offered an alternative suggestion to see an ENT specialist that he would recommend. In the exam room there are framed newspaper articles from what appeared to be the 1970's detailing with photos Dr. Menick's charitable surgical work with children in emerging nations. Based upon what I saw, I would recommend him for reconstruction (cancer, accidents, birth defects) only. I think he is an outstanding reconstructionist, but for cosmetic work, iffy to no. I just did not get the impression that cosmetic aesthetic is a crucial part of his mindset. Reason why I think this is because I have seen both cosmetic and cancer dermatologists, and the cancer ones are dismissive of the cosmetic aspect of dermatology and the cosmetic ones - well, I got the impression that that's their area of interest. Imo, Dr. Menick is best for the serious stuff as I mentioned; that is his area of interest. There were no before/after photos for me to look at. No computer analysis either. The magaines in the waiting room were "Arizona Bride" , "House & Garden" and several others that are unmemorable, not having to do with beauty and fashion.
The consult lasted 10 minutes, maybe 15 minutes, but no longer than that. The consult cost is low: $25.00. It was 99 degrees outside.
