18/06/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. Zakhary was incredibly helpful. Right from the first moment I stepped into her office she knew why I was there and what she could do about my nose. She drew out a sketch of what she would do on the procedure which helped me understand exactly what was going to happen and how she imagined it to look. Before the surgery day you must commit to the days (a week, 2 weeks, month, 3 months etc) that you have to return to see Dr. Zakhary- this is all for your benefit so she can keep an eye on the healing process. On surgery day I was after I was put under for the cosmetic surgery she realized how obstructive my deviated septum was and took an extra 2 hours to make sure that it was corrected and my nose was perfected. I will forever be thankful for that! My nose looks amazing (and natural) and I can breathe. Dr. Zakhary gave me clear instructions as to when I would see her and taping instructions. Every time I see her she is more than helpful with answering questions/concerns.  Respond

10/06/14 5 5 5 5 Amazing results and excellent services. Dr. Zakhary Fixed my broken nose in 2011. I must admit that the entire experience was very pleasant. I am impressed by her and her friendly and welcoming staff. She made me feel comfortable and talked me through the surgery procedures and healing process. I was able to see the the great results after the swelling went down. I recommend Dr. Zakhary and wish that I had the surgery sooner.  Respond

09/06/14 1 1 1 1 I can not be more frustrated by this doctor. I have severe sinus problems and my family doctor sent me to Dr. Zakhary. After a preliminary diagnosis she said I qualified for septum surgery but needed a CT scan to check on a previously diagnosed cyst and how it would complicate surgery or if it needed to come out. Her office then never sent the request for CT scan. After playing telephone tag with her inept office admins I had to go back to my wonderful family doctor who sent it on her behalf. After taking care of everything myself she cancels follow up appointments. I have been dealing with this BS from her office for a year. She may be good at what she does but beware that you may have to put your health in your own hands. Time for me to find another surgeon.  Respond

She does what is best for you and your body to give you the optimal outcome! She is caring, professional, and takes such pride in her profession and her results... She and her staff treat you with the utmost respect and care, are attentive to your calls and messages with barely any waiting time, and are professional in every way. You couldn't be in better hands! I can finally breathe without obstruction and aesthetically my nose looks so so so much better. She is a highly skilled surgeon and a very nice person.

15/04/14 5 5 5 5 I had a rhinoplasty surgery by Dr. Zakhary around 3 months ago, and I wanted to thank Dr. Zakhary and her team very much for everything. Your kindness and knowledge has made this process very easy and I could not be more pleased with these results. You were all amazing, and I cannot thank Dr. Zakhary enough for how friendly and accommodating she was, she made it a great experience.

15/04/14 5 4 5 5 Dr Zakhary is a great doctor. I have been seeing here for about 2 years I first went in to get a consultation for plastic surgery and once I had my first consultation, Dr Zakhary started helping me with my skin. I saw very good results . Dr Zakhary is helping me find a solution to my acne. I use all the Obagi products the products helped me minimize my pores and active acne.Not only is she professional Dr Zakhary tries her best to help you and find a solution to your issue. I strongly recommend Dr Zakhary.  Respond

15/04/14 5 5 5 5 I had some facial corrections done by Dr. Zakhary, and I can tell you that she is insanely good at what she does- loving the results. I understand that she is currently the only board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon in Calgary . Her certificates are hanging on the wall in the office...and they are impressive. She is an ear nose and throat, head and neck surgeon as well as a facial cosmetic surgeon. This is significant to me as a healthcare provider, because it ensures that she is just as capable of correcting function as she is at esthetics-the full package. It means that I can refer patients to her with full confidence that they will leave her office with full functionality possible (airway management etc.) as well as top notch esthetics every time. After all, I would not refer patients to an MD that I would not happily go to myself. I would, and do trust Dr. Zakhary fully with my own face and health. Keep up the great work Dr. Zakhary!  Respond

14/04/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. Zakhary performed a rhinoplasty for me a few years ago and did an exceptional job. I now see her for Obagi treatment, and it's been very effective at improving my skin. Dr. Zakhary is highly professional and has a great aesthetic sense. I think what's impressed me the most though is that she's also very caring. My mother, encouraged by my experience, had a face lift done by Dr. Zakhary - I can honestly say she looks 15 years younger. Dr. Zakhary did an amazing job. But my mother had an allergic reaction soonafter the surgery to some of the medications (even though she never had allergies before). Dr. Zakhary had given us her personal telephone number and email, and when we reached out to her, she quickly and accurately diagnosed the issue, got my mother admitted to the hospital and visited her every day to ensure she was getting better. One day a resident saw her since she trained him and you could tell he clearly looked up to her. I've been extremely impressed with her.

13/04/14 1 1 1 1 Dr.Zakhary is very unprofessional I found that she was not honest about anything she changes her prices everytime you see her She uses the same needles to inject her patients with fillers and charges you full price every time even if the vial hasnt been completely used the she uses the remaining amount on her future clients. She is so dishonest and fake dont be fooled there is so many doctors out there who genuinely care. She is full of it and so is her staff she over charges for obagi skin care you can buy it online for a fraction of the cost.She has a horrible bedside manner and is an ears nose and throat doctor hardly a plastic surgeon  See Responses

28/02/14 5 5 5 5 I had always disliked my nose, which is very common for alot of people I found out which made me feel more comfortable. After doing some research I decided rhinoplasty would be the best option and decided on Dr Kristina Zakhary for a consultation. Right away I knew I wanted her to be my surgeon. In the consultation she was very kind, and knowledgeable and knew exactly what I was looking for and explained to me exactly what would happen if I went forward with the surgery. I went ahead with rhinoplasty to correct my big bump on the bridge of my nose, the curve, and to lift it to make it appear more feminine. I just had surgery done 2 weeks ago and I am already ecstatic with my results. Before the date Dr Zakhary and her staff were very accommodating and always made sure I was feeling okay and prepared, and right before I went in Dr Zakhary made sure I was comfortable and knew exactly what was going to happen. I recommend Dr Zakhary to anyone, I couldnt be happier with my choice!

31/12/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Zakhary and her staff are exceptional at achieving positive results. The purpose for my involvement with her office was for acne, which I had struggled with since my early teens. Now well into my adulthood I decided it was long overdue to seek medical advice. After first consulting with my GP, I was refused a referral and given a low does Accutane, which I do not recommend to anyone. Dr. Zakhary was sympathetic to my history and encouraging for positive results. Much like many who suffer from acne, I have tried what seems like every OTC treatment and system. This is the first time in my life I have been completely acne free. It was a process to achieve results, but now 11 months since my initial visit I would definitely seek the advice of Dr. Zakhary again. Dr. Zakhary's intimate knowledge of the Obagi system in addition to medications to supplement is what has led to her success in treating this skin disease. Thank you Dr. Zakhary.  Respond

12/11/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Zakhary was an absolutely amazing doctor and assisted me in correcting a bump along my nose that resulted from a previous injury. Instead of going straight to corrective surgery, Dr. Zakhary successfully injected my nose with filler and completely erased the bump. I am so pleased with the results. Dr. Zakhary, along with her assistant Heather, provided outstanding customer service and high-quality care. I would recommend Dr. Zakhary to anyone who wants an amazing experience with a doctor who really cares about your happiness and well-being.  Respond

I felt so taken care of, and my friends and family are all telling me how beautiful and natural my nose looks (I still look like myself, just with a better nose).

07/11/13 5 4 5 5 Dr. Zakhary is a very good and professional surgeon. I am thrilled with my earlobe repair that she did for me to fix my torn earlobes. You can't even see a scar. She followed up with me many times to make sure I healed well, and she even told me where to re-peirce my ears when the time was right. I have never met such a friendly doctor. She obviously loves her job and it shows in the work she does. I have already recommended her to my sister who wants to have a nose job. Excellent team too!

27/08/13 4 4 5 5 I had rhinoplasty surgery with Dr. Zakhary 5 years ago to take down a bump on my nose and make my nose less round, and I am very happy with my result. She explained the surgery and healing time in detail to me, and she also explained all the risks that could happen, and what she would do to help me heal. Very few doctors actually take the time do go through all these details with you. I understand that there could be risks with surgery, but I healed really well!

26/08/13 4 5 3 3 I had a rhinoplasty done with Dr. Zachary about two years ago to fix a bump on my nose. At first my nose was looking really good and I was happy with the result but then I started noticing my nose getting crooked over time. my bump is gone but now the tip is twisted to the left and there is a cartilage that is pointy at the bottom. I paid over $8,000 for my nose and I am so disappointed on how it turned out. She said any revision would have to be extra cost and I am not willing to spend that kind of money again and have it get ruined. I am going to Turkey and get it fixed wit Dr. Nazim.

25/07/13 5 5 5 5 I had Rhinoplasty completed about two months ago by Dr Zakhary and am in-love with the results. Her office staff are very professional and caring, going out of there way to make you feel relaxed and informed on the whole procedure. I saw Dr Zakhary three times before the actual surgery (consult, one month prior, and 30 minutes pre-op)and again right after it was completed and she was very thorough each time. She even called the night following my surgery to make sure I was doing well. As somebody who works in the health care field, I appreciated not only her surgical skill but bedside manner as well. She was very realistic with what she could do and what would look best for me. I went to a lot of consults prior to Dr Zakhary and I'm so glad I made the decision that I did, she definitely has a passion for what she does and it shows.

31/05/13 5 5 5 5 I saw Dr. Zakhary for revision Rhinoplasty. I had a severe boxer nose with a very droopy tip due to several broken noses along with two operations with bad results by an ENT. I was referred to Dr. Zakhary. Dr Zakhary was very realistic about the problems and what she could correct. I felt very confident in her abilities and she was very knowledgeable, articulate and confident that my nose could be corrected during this operation. Post-op Dr. Zakhary took the time to call me and inquire about my condition . My nose looks almost the same (natural) as it did before it was ever broken or damaged by the two previous surgery’s. All I can say is WOW, fantastic work. I have had great results and Dr. Zakhary has exceeded all of my expectations both as a surgeon and as a caring Doctor. Her staff were also very professional and helpful throughout. I would highly recommend Dr. Zakhary to anyone that is looking for the very best in facial surgeons.

She showed me lots of before and after pictures. She was upfront about the surgery, regarding recovery time, swelling etc. On the day of the surgery, she came to see me before going into the operating room. She again was warm and confident. I was not a bit nervous. After the surgery she told me everything went great. A week later I went to see her to get my cast off and stitches out. I was so excited. She did a fantastic job.

27/02/13 5 5 5 5 I saw Dr. Zakhary about 5 months ago for a rhinoplasty. I had a hump on the bridge of my nose and the tip hung low. She was very professional, caring, and understanding throughout this process. She was also very realistic stating she wouldn't be making "dramatic" changes. After the surgery I had some nausea for the first few days, Dr. Zakhary called me at home to make sure I was feeling okay. During the follow up appointments she was very informative and open to any questions i had, which helped to minimize the anxiety that came with having a splint and tape on my nose for about a month. Dr. Zakhary had absolutely went above and beyond any expectations I had for my surgery outcomes. The bump was completely gone, leaving a perfectly straight bridge to my nose, and the tip was protected just the way I wanted. I'm overjoyed with the results, and couldn't imagine going through this process with any other doctor. I would HIGHLY recommend this doctor to anyone looking to get a rhinoplasty!  Respond

25/02/13 5 5 4 5 Dr. Zakhary and her team are very professional and sensitive to your needs. After trying a number of creams, acid peels and light treatments for my melasma, I went to Dr. Zakhary in 2011 to seek her advice. She recommended the Obagi line (yes, it's expensive), but I say unbelievable results with just a month and a half of use. Then I followed up with a Fraxel treatment - improved the results even more. I will need to continue with the Obaji and Fraxel for the rest of my life to maintain results. Kelsey administered by Fraxel treatments, and she is fantastic - knowledgeable, respectful of my time, and walks me through the process step by step. I also see Dr. Zakhary for cheek and lip fillers - she does a great job with keeping the results natural and realistic. One constructive comment is that sometimes Dr. Zakhary seems overly busy or distracted to fully listen to a question or complaint which is frustrating. Small room for improvement there, but overall very pleased.  Respond

24/02/13 3 4 1 2 This doctor is just not good. I went in for rhinoplasty about a year and a half ago and have not had a good outcome. I had a bone protruding out the side of my nose for a year, the tip was uneven, and when she finally did file the bone down she created a bump on the bridge of my nose. She also made the bridge way too thin and I haven't been able to breathe out of It properly and constantly have snot in it. Needless to say I now need to get a revision. I'm going to turkey to see dr nazim who is apparently one of the leading surgeons in the world. I didn't post on here to be mean but I felt I had to warn others as my decision to go with this doctor was based on the good comments from this website. Don't waste your money there are more talented people out there.

I must admit that her surgical skills, knowledge and particularly her caring follow ups after each procedure are what made me pleased and confident to go back again for more. I had my earlobe repaired, and a minifacelift, as well as botox and fillers with Dr. Zakhary, all of which were done to my full liking and complete satisfaction.

12/02/13 1 1 1 1 Disgusted with the outcome of my surgery I am scarred for life. I visited Dr zakhary to have a small mole reoved from my nose. It was agreed to be a minor job and that if there were to be any complications Dr zakahry would do any revisions free of charge. Well I wish I could have the mole back because this doctor had 4 attempts at this surgery each time the scar grew to the point now where my nose is deformed. At this point I expressed how unhappy I was with the results to be told by the clinic that Dr zajhary had performed 3 revisions and that is all they could do but she would put some filler under the hole which would last 3 months. This has had an adverse affect on my appearance and I urge all potential customers to go somewhere else.

10/02/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Zakhary was fantastic to deal with from start to finish. Her entire staff has been very professional and courteous. For me the surgery has been a complete success. I am now able to breathe through my nose which has enabled me to get restful sleep at night and I have significantly reduced my snoring according to my wife which has allowed her to get restful sleep at night. Cosmetically the product has been a great success also. I have also experience a shorter than expected recovery time between surgery and when I was able to breathe properly. Dr. Zakhary took me through the process from start to finish and let me know every step so I was never surprised at what was happening. She seemed to personalize the entire experience for me so I always felt comfortable. I would have no trouble recommending Dr. Zakhary to anybody looking for a great office and a great surgeon.

07/02/12 5 5 5 5 I had Dr. Zakhary fix problematic nostrils on a complicated nose. She fixed flare and brought everything into balance. No isses from the procedure, everything was done with competence and the result was ideal cosmetically/aesthetically. This nose has a long history of treatment as it is afflicted with a rhinophyma skin condition that causes disfiguration. I have met with and/or had treatment from several of Calgary's top dermatologists/plastic surgeons. Dr. Zakhary was not in the city when I had my rhinoplasty done in 2006 but if she was I would have willingly pursued her to do the procedure. Her interpersonal and surgical skills are notably proficient and I would say she stands out nicely. She shows that this energy capital is able to attract world-class talent and we are fortunate to have so many opportunities.

31/10/11 5 5 5 5 I became a new patient of Dr. Zakhary in Oct/2010 and since then I've had botox and filler done with excellent results. She's is one of the most honest and caring professionals I've ever met with a keen eye for detail. Her honesty and integrity make her one of the best professionals in her field. I feel very honored to be a patient of Dr. Zakharys!  Respond

30/10/11 5 4 4 4 I am a transgender and I needed a gradual facial femization. I found Dr. Zakhary and her staff (especially Kelsey) very friendly and understanding, without any gender bias in their behavior. I could not go for surgery for personal limitations, but the other treatment options (laser hair removal, bottox and fillers) that have done for me, were effective as expected. I did not expect a complete facial femimization without surgery of course.  Respond

12/10/11 1 1 1 5 Terrible support staff! Worst experience with a doctor's office. Never actually got in to see the doctor because of errors made by her staff! If you are booked in to see a professional, the professionalism should start at first contact! Thanks for nothing.  See Responses

26/09/11 5 5 5 5 I was looking for a plastic surgeon in Calgary to do a facelift for a long time and I wanted somebody who is specializing only on face. It was a period when I was even ready to go Seattle and go through all the inconveniences of travelling after surgery. But Dr. Kristina Zachary opened her practice a few years ago and I was lucky to have the facelift done here in Calgary. It was much easier than I expected: no pain at all after the surgery. And I am very happy with the result. She is a very knowledgeable and outstandingly honest: if you do not need an expensive treatment she openly tells you about it. I would recommend her to anyone, and my friends are no longer critical about the facelift procedure when they saw the results. Thank you, Dr. Zachary!  Respond

29/04/11 5 5 5 5 I had a laser removal appointment at Dr. Zakhary's office and when I came in I was greeted by her receptionist in a very warm matter. She was punctual in getting me into my appointment and always has a smile on her face. Her technician is very professional and always does a great job with my laser and fraxal making sure I am always comfortable and never in pain. Dr. Zakhary provides a very warm and comforting environment where all her patients can know they are getting the best treatment:)  Respond

23/04/11 1 3 1 2 i have been a patient of dr zakhary's for a few years now for fillers and botox. i've never had a problem with her before, but since she got her assistant i've noticed the quality of care has really gone down. her new assistant just keeps trying to push more treatment packages and a $600 skin care line on me EVERY time i see her, and if you show any slight hint of not wanting a ton of packages or products you dont need, i've noticed that dr zakhary and her staff treat you accordingly; she suddenly has no time for you. she seems more interested in making money now, than patient care. and her new assistant is SO UNPROFESSIONAL. twice now i've seen her roll her eyes and make snide comments about other patients behind their backs, right in front of me!!! not impressed at all, after years of seeing this dr, i'm looking elsewhere. i can get the same results without the pretentiousness from someone else.  See Responses

20/01/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Zakhary is a knowledgable surgeon who listens to exactly what you want and is able to recreate it! I was able to trust her fully with my Rhinoplasty and I received the exact results I wanted. I am now 1.5 months post op and I couldn't be happier. She is caring, compassionate, and will tell you the truth about what to expect for results. Overall, a pleasant experience with the staff and the surgery. If you want a great ENT doctor, she is your girl!  See Responses

22/10/10 5 5 5 5 I cannot say enough good things about Dr Zakhary and her staff. I had Rhinoplasty 8 days ago and I LOVE!!! my new nose. Dr Zakhary exceeded my expectations of what I thought my nose could look like. Not only is she talented and skilled she is so kind and caring and is the sweetest doctor I have ever met. Through out this whole process she and her staff have been availible and helpfull whenever I have needed them. I even called her one day to ask her a question about my nose and was told she was in surgery for the day I litterally got a phone call back 10 min later by Dr Zakhary to answer my question. I would and will recommend her to everyone I know. She is truly an artist and has changed my life and self-esteem. I am happy to send my personal email address to anyone who thinks that Dr Zakhary writes her own reviews. she's too busy making everyone beautiful!!!!  See Responses

21/10/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Zakhary is the best there is-period. She is a true professional and a talented skillful artist. She has the ability to make subtle and positive changes that are natural and lovely. Myself-I have never looked better. I have had to learn to be disciplined in using products daily but the improvement is very noticeable. Dr. Zakhary will steer you to the simplest way possible to make the very most of your features. She is kind and very considerate of her patients. I would not recommend wasting time and resources anywhere else-I'm so happy I found her!  Respond

31/03/10 3 4 1 2 Dr. Zakhary is very friendly, but otherwise the experience was awful. I am 38, and went to ask about eyelid surgery. She told me that instead, I needed over $3,000 worth of botox & fillers and an eyebrow lift (very complex surgery). She had no idea how much that would cost and told me to call her TO office. I had standard botox that day & she told me you can't lift eyelids with botox - though I'd done this with another Dr. for over a year! While I waited in the appt. room for her, her asst. came in for at least 10 minutes and pitched $500 Obagi skin products. To top it off, I never received the tax receipt by e-mail that I'd told would be sent. Other doctors in Calgary are MUCH better informed regarding simple cosmetic procedures.

30/01/10 5 5 5 5 I ‘vet had a nose job, restylane & Botox from Dr. Z and I adore her (and her staff). When I first consulted with her for my nose job she told me the facts about what she could medically do to improve my appearance, instead of getting me sold on a bunch of fluff that I wanted to hear. After the disappointment that she couldn’t transform me into a supermodel wore off, I realized I appreciated her honesty and straightforwardness so I could make an informed decision with what the results would actually be compared to what the risks might be. If you’re going to mess with your face, get someone who will tell you what they can do, not tell you what you want to hear.  See Responses

03/11/08 1 3 1 2 I had a horrible experience. I was charged $1000 for NOTHING. She did not do the digital imaging that is supposed to be apart of the $100 consultation fee (it was for rhinoplasty), nor did she do it on the second appointment because she "just didn't have the time"(that was another $100 charge they did not inform me of) Her staff is not in Calgary. They're all in Toronto, so just to get an answer to a question you have to call ontario. I was so annoyed, dissappointed and pissed about how sub par the entire experience was that I cancelled the surgery 6 weeks before the date. I was still charged $1000 for "their time" What a joke. I don't recommed anyone to this doctor.

19/10/08 1 1 5 5 Meeting Dr Zakhary was a very pleasant experience, however her booking service staff re-scheduled my appointment for a $2000 procedure without actually talking to me... and applied a $105 charge to my Visa for a "no-show". Never mind the time I took off work and the fact that I showed up at the office at the originally scheduled time... A very disappointing service.
