Dr. Michael J. Yaremchuk's Ratings
Terrible. He paralyzed one side of my face and then blamed me because I had "elected" a surgery he had pushed on me. He wanted to "correct" what he thought was another surgeon's bad work, which was actually fine, and in doing that placed a 3 inch incision next to my eye we hadn't discussed. I awoke from surgery permanently disfigured. I tell people I was in a car accident that left my face scarred and paralyzed. He also seriously compromised my vision, leaving me with a dessicated cornea as a result of the facial paralysis. My speech is impaired, I cannot smile, and my life has been forever altered. Stay away from this man.
Dr Y reconstructed my breast in 1996 after a mastectomy. The procedure I had required using tissue from my abdomen, therefore I also ended up with with a "tummy tuck". He did an amazing job that still looks good after almost 18 years. Initially I thought his bedside manner was terrible (he was yawning during our conversation the first time I met with him like I was the most boring patient in the world) but I still chose him over three others to do my surgery after a consultation with each of them, even though they were all more personable. I read other posts that described Dr Y as egotistical, but my sense then was that there was an intensity about him and my gut feeling was that he was more invested in a great outcome than making friends. My nephew, a doc from L.A. Came with me on my next meeting with Dr Y & my nephew confirmed my gut feeling that Dr Y should do my surgery. I did ask him to get lots of sleep the night before my surgery (no yawning) and he did crack a smile.
This is a very good doctor with just the right number of years of experience. If you are concerned about competence and don't know what pastic surgeon to go to, chose this one. I have been going to him for 7 years and I have had no problems. My seven- year history puts me in a position to judge his ability, and he is just a very good doctor. I would not hestitate to use him as my doctor and would recommend him without reservation. I would ignore the post by that other user on 11/22/11. In fact, this user may be thinking about a different doctor/or have the wrong doctor in mind. To illustrate my point, many of the nurses who work at the hospital Dr. Yaremchuk is affilated with compliment his work stating that he does a great job with closing up facial wounds.
I have had several procedures with Dr Yaremchuk (facelift, upper bleph, IOR's) and find his work exceptional and extremely natural looking. I have also found him to be extremely caring and responsive to questions and concerns. After a recent survery I was concerned about how I was healing and he immediately made time to see me off hours on a holiday weekend. Everything was fine and knowing he cared that much about his patients and his work made me an even bigger fan. He is a true professional and an extremely talented surgeon.
Dr. Y performed a blepharoplasty (both upper and lower eyes), a facelift and necklift for me a month ago. The results are amazing. He is an extremely skilled surgeon. His staff (especially Jan) is extremely knowledgeable and are always available when he is not to answer any questions. I cannot believe how perfect the results are. It is great to look at least 20 years younger! His fees were half of the other surgeon I consulted with for a second opinion. This is one of the best decisions that I have ever made in my life. The first week after the surgery is difficult; however, after that, the recovery is fairly quick. I was back to work full time after 10 days. Just follow his and his staff's advice during recovery and you won't regret your decision.
Dr. Y did a face & neck lift for me with amazing and very natural looking results. I still look like me, just younger and better. He is both a brilliant surgeon and talented artist. I found him to set very factual and realistic expectations, and he took the time to answer all my questions. I was nervous about the whole process, but cannot imagine things going more smoothly. I'm thrilled I went through with it and would absolutely recommend him without hesitation.
Dr. Yaremachuk is an excellent surgeon. He preformed surgery on me for a browlift and breast impalnts. There was nver a moment of feeling anxiuos when I was in his hands. Others have stated he has a large ego they are mistaking confidence as an ego. He has been rated as one of the top 10 plastic surgeons on more than one occasion in Boston magazine.
Unfortunately I've had some bad experiences with plastic surgeons. Dr. Y is an artist. He has techniques at solving problems that other doctors don't. If it's not exactly what you wanted he will go the extra mile to give you just what you want. Not to mention he's just an awesome guy. I seriously can't imagine any surgeon being better. Cosmetic surgery is a really delicate thing to mess with and you're not going find anyone better. He seriously changed my life.
Terrible bedside manner. No compassion. Huge ego. VERY sarcastic and demeaning. I don't care if his work is impeccable, I deserve to be treated with respect and for my questions to be answered. Will never return.
