Did you get any procedure(s) done by this doctor?   Yes
Date of your procedure(s):   July 18, 1995
Procedure(s) I had done:   None


Too Surgery-Oriented !! I had a minor fracture of the bridge of my nose and wasn't sure I even needed an operation. Flaherty said he would not have to re-break my nose - but he lied and smashed the entire bridge and made it much smaller than it was before the accident, leaving a swollen area toward the tip. Years later I still have a deviated septum, breathing, sleeping problems and my nose looks worse than it did before he operated. I wish I had never let him touch me. He is completely cold in his attitude and doesn't listen to concerns. Go somewhere else. I HATE MY FLAHERTY NOSE !!
