Ratings for Dr. Terry J. Dubrow
It has taken me a long while to write this review as I've been stewing over my bad decision to have my breast reconstruction surgery from breast cancer done by Dr. Dubrow. I am located in New Jersey. I took my hard earned money thinking I was going to have the best surgeon available for botched surgeries. The first order of business was taking my credit card for the consultation fee. I set up my appointment and flew out to California. The doctor was very personable just like on TV. He promised me everything under the sun & told me I needed a little more here and a little more there for extra money! He gave me his personal phone number so I could call him on my return to New Jersey & I sent pics of my post op. He answered the first time I called. I was so impressed and told everybody how great is that. He told everything was looking good except that I had to put creams on as I was having a slight infection in my breast. I was then told to send pictures in another couple weeks. I sent pictures and didn't hear from anybody as they said they didn't receive them and I was waiting for the doctor to call me back because my breast was not looking right and he never did. I was told by his surgery consult Kim Austin to stop calling him that he was busy filming !!!! He didn't care about my concerns as a patient. After my post op and then when I was having an infection and the breast was sagging and not looking good he never had the gall to call me back. After many texts , emails and phone calls I heard from his miserable surgery consultant Kim Austin. I was shocked when she sent me an email saying he would redo my breast but of course this would mean I'd have to fly out to California again and pay surgical room fees along with anesthesia. where was I getting this extra money??? I sent a nasty email telling him how he didn't have the ethics to call me back and talk to me in person. I really don't know if Kim Austin gave him that email but I've never heard from him ever again nor her so they really do not care about their patients concerns or their botched work after getting their money in full. Please don't waste your time or your money! I feel botched worse than I was before. I should have stayed and went to Philadelphia where there are marvelous plastic surgeons that would've been paid for by my insurance. Darlene New Jersey
Stay away! Dr.Dubrow is a narcissist who told me that my eyes are too small and there is nothing he can do about it. But I went to him for my nose, so he really upset me. He said he can take me after the summer, as in the summer, all the young girls in Newport get their nose jobs. Now why would I have to wait? Is my money not green? It's because he likes to work on young pretty people. I am middle aged and nice looking, but he clearly goes after the younger market. It was horrible and I had to pay for a consult.
I had a perfect experience with Dr. Dubrow and his staff. His nurse was amazing. She made me feel very comfortable before and after my surgery. Anesthesiologist was very nice and made sure I was not nauseous or cold. The check in girl Kim always does her best to answer your questions. I found Dr. Dubrow to be very nice and very competent. I had a very thorough consultation for free with him. I had a complete breast reconstruction. He went under the muscle and put in 375cc high profile silicone breast implants. I was not completely certain of the size I wanted this time so he made his suggestion and let my husband make sure during the surgery wile I was behind a sheet that the size we picked looked perfect. They are beautiful and perfect. I could not be happier. My surgery was not simple due to the fact I had two ruptured saline implants form a different doctor. Dr. Dubrow is an amazing surgeon. I would recommend him to everyone!
