Ratings for Dr. Norman Shorr
I have been to see Dr. Norman Shorr many times over the past 15-20 years (I write this in Dec. 2015). After many doctors here in the NY area gave up on me, telling me they refused to do any procedure on me and that nothing would help me, doctor Shorr invented and is now teaching others all over the world this amazing surgery. I have had several procedures over the years as my disease progressed and each and every time he has been the most kind, knowledgeable, and caring person. I owe him my sight, my health and perhaps my life.
I had saw Dr. Shorr for over a year and he strung me along with a potential surgery to correct my eye problem. I was never corrected and spent an a suburb amount of money. My insurance was billed for charges he never even preformed! Very dishonest person and not recommended by me. He shouldn't be practicing in my opinion.
I saw Dr. Shorr yesterday and had a conversation with his office manager. She said she had discovered that Dr. Shorr had been poorly rated on this site. I feel a responsibility to shed light on the impact he has had on my life. When I first came to him I had had 12 surgeries over several years. No one would help me. Every surgeon I saw said they could not do anything because I would not have a good result. Most of them suggested I see Dr. Shorr. I live in NY so going to LA to see Dr. Shorr was an expensive proposition. He was so kind, so knowledgeable, so detailed with me in his assessment and explanations of the problems. He didn't promise a lot but what he gave me was better than I hoped for. My eyes now close all the way, my outer corners are no longer rounded and they turn up as they used to. I am SO happy! I look in the mirror and cry tears of joy. I can't speak highly enough of this man. He saved my life. Words cannot express how grateful and thankful I am to have found him!
I'm shocked to find negative info about Dr. Shorr! I had very complex eyelid problems and needed reconstruction. I consulted with several oculoplastic surgeons, all of whom said I should only go to Dr. Shorr. I am so grateful I did. He performed both lower eyelid surgeries on me using the Madame Butterfly procedure which he invented and he gave me my life back after years of suffering and hating how I looked. My eyelids are now positioned where they should be and I constantly receive compliments on my eyes. I know that Dr. Shorr runs the UCLA training program and because I did my research, I know he has run it for many years and that it is the number one oculoplastic program in the country and has been the entire time he has run it. I also know that he specializes in eyelid revisions. This means that he is always dealing with unhappy patients who have had previous bad surgeries elsewhere. Thank God I chose him rather than trying someone else and wasting time and money.
My cosmetic surgery was botched by Norman Shorr. I have one eye bigger than the other and difficulty with the muscles in my eye after his surgery. He said that I needed to have my teeth fixed when I approached him with my eyes. My life has been a nightmare after his surgery.
Dr. Shorr performed his Madame Butterfly procedure on me with devastating results. His surgery left my eyes in worse condition than before his operation. The midface lift was a disaster that caused multiple complications that he denied were even possible. I have had to have several revisions after his surgery, and I will never be the same. I will spend the rest of my life regretting that I ever trusted this surgeon to help me.
