Ratings for Dr. Richard J. Zienowicz
Dr. Zienowitz must have been having an "off" day when I went to him for left breast reduction for symmetry following lumpectomy on my right breast for cancer. The consultation was fine--but when I met him in the waiting area of the OR before the procedure, he seemed tired. Without any measurements, he seemed to eyeball my left breast, marked it with marker, and did the reduction. My left breast remained considerably, and noticeably much larger than the right. When I went back for my checkup and mentioned this, he said it was still swollen from the surgery. It was not. This was over 15 years ago and whenever I think about this--and I try not to--I feel I was not treated well. All the doctors who have examined my breasts since agree that the reduction was very poorly done. When I saw someone about having it corrected, he said that the nerves to the nipple had been cut--and that he could not re-do the surgery for fear the nipple would become necrotic. Liposuction was a possibility and that was that. As I read the other reviews, I feel deeply disappointed that I did not have anywhere near the happy result from a procedure that, it seems to me, should have been almost a no-brainer for a doctor as skilled as Dr. Zienowitz.
Dr. Zienowicz performed a face lift and brow lift two weeks ago. Already I am healing beautifully and am waking up smiling with the results. I was really nervous in the days leading up to my surgery and felt so much better the morning of when Dr. Z met me in the operatory and assured me of the procedure we had discussed performing. The nursing staff was excellent, so kind and compassionate, keeping me in recovery until I felt ready to head home. I've been in the office since and each time the staff takes such loving care of me, I really feel like they become like family. I look forward to posting my photos on real self soon, when I figure out how to do it. By the way, this was my second face lift with the first occurring about 15 years ago by a well-known NYC surgeon. After the first face lift I was numb for months. With Dr. Z I have complete feeling from day one. I'm confident I made the right choice.
