Ratings for Dr. Gary Churchill
Waited for almost 2 months to be able to get an afternoon appointment. Got there 20 minutes early and was brought into the room on time. However waited 70 MINUTES and no one ever came into the room after 70 minutes of no doctor and nobody telling me when the doctor was going to come in I got up and walked out. How can anyone sit in a small room with nothing to do for for an hour and ten minutes ? How about telling the patient that the doctor is running behind. I felt complexly forgotten especially seeing patient after patient pass by through a window.
I had a rhinoplasty done by Dr. Churchill, and I am very pleased with the results of my surgery. However, I have had a terrible experience with his office staff. In my initial consultation, I was told that I would have to pay for the entire cost of surgery upfront, but that a claim could be submitted to my insurance company for reimbursement after my procedure. I had a deviated septum which affected my breathing and sometimes insurance companies will pay for a portion of the procedure. It has been 3 months since my surgery and they have yet to submit a claim to the insurance company. I have called on four different occasions and talked to someone in person on one occasion. I have been lied to, told that the claim was submitted, when it was not. I am frustrated and feel disrespected by the office staff. It's unfortunate because Dr. Churchill is a terrific physician and does great work, but I would never return to his office for another procedure or recommend them.
I have had my eyes done as well as a mini facelift. I also receive periodic injections in my face. I love my results and think very highly of Dr. Churchill and his staff. They are very professional and highly competent. I highly recommend this doctor!
I had a terrible experience with my facelift. I thought he would do a fine job. Dr. Churchill had done surgery on my eyes, although he did have to do them twice. I was not happy with the outcome after the first surgery, but after he removed more skin from my lid I was happier with it. My facelift is another story altogether. It was clear after the facelift that something had gone terribly wrong. The doctor believed that resurfacing might help. He did do that for me and it did help some. However, I still had a deep crevice on the lower right side of my face which he filled with Juvederm and I am scarred from that. The doctor told me he did not recommend any more surgery. I have a long scar on the left side of my face the goes from my cheekbone nearly to my chin. He cut or nicked my earlobes which changed their appearance, and I have a bald spot on my hairline. I've been very depressed about it for a year and a half. I just got very sick of reading all of these great reviews!
Went to Dr. Churchill to have him fix my nose that a previous doctor completely ruined. His staff is so friendly and welcoming, and I LOVE my result. He is extremely knowledgeable and skilled..a complete change from what I experienced with my previous surgeon. I would definitely recommend Dr. Churchill.
I feel Dr. Churchill did a fantastic job on my facelift and upper and lower blepharplasty. 7 weeks post op and have been told I look great and "something was different. Did I grow my hair longer?". Still a bit swollen in some places but am very happy and satisfied so far. Would recommend Dr. Churchill and his WONDERFUL staff to anyone!
Dr Churchill is a knowledgeable and compassionate doctor. His staff is friendly (and a good advertisement for his work!) He discourages too much plastic surgery and will only agree to do work he thinks you need. Although the recovery from plastic surgery is not 'fun', Dr Churchill and his staff made it easier than it might have been, and it is worth it in the end...finally!
Absolutely wo derful. Dr. Churchill is a skilled plastic surgeon who specializes in faces only. He is booked out 4-5 months I advance and does not advertise anywhere. It is strictly word of mouth, and to tell you the truth, the best kept secret in terms of superior and exemplary results. He is compassionate, kind, a great listener, and spends as much time as necessary with his patients. His surgury center receives the highest marks possible. Both of us are thrilled with the results. If you are considering facial surgery, you must get his expert opinion. Quality personified.
