Finally I can breath easily and I have Dr. David Alessi to thank for this. While I was having elective surgery to my nose, he was able to repair the deviated septum which was causing me so much trouble with breathing. I am astounded at the previous review to mine that makes such egregious comments about the good doctor. I find it hard to believe that any of it is true. He had a packed waiting room with patients waiting to see him. Sure I had to wait a bit, but sometimes waiting for the BEST is well worth it.

I was particularly interested in Dr. Alessi at the Alessi Institute and his method. I did my research of doctors in the area of Beverly Hills and found him to one of the best for my neck enhancement. Kudos to Dr. Alessi for addressing the problem.

Dr. Alessi is one of the worst doctors I have even been to, and thats alot to say because I come from a family of doctors (my dad is an MD) and know that making mistakes is inevitable. I had a simple tonsilectomy procedure. I was 25 years old and expected it to be difficult. AFter 1 year, I still feel rough scars in the back of my throat, and constant pain. I wish I never performed the surgery with him. Sometimes i just sit and cry because I cant tolerate the pain anymore. I went back to him a few times in the past year,not only did he brush off the situation as nothing, but kept charging my insurance and sending home the bills. It is ridiculous to pay for something where your doctor was at fault. His own associate in the office said he there's a piece of tonsil still left in my mouth.I heard he had a few cases per month where the surgeries go wrong.They say its because he performs the surgeries so fast.As well, his office staff was very rude and not understanding, Tnx for listening

Dr. Alessi was fantastic. My General Doctor was on vacation and I got an ear infection (swimmer's ear). He saw me right away and was kind, knowledgable, and fixed me right up. I can't write enough good things about him or his staff.

I traveled across the country to have Dr. Alessi perform elective plastic surgery on my face.He is the best! It is wonderful to have people think that I am in my late 30's....I am actually in my 50's. My face looks natural. What an artist!

Dr. Alessi, is great. I had many many sinus infections and surgeries do to blunt trauma to my face when I was a child. He did the last surgery and helped me greatly, not just for what I saw him for but as a human being. He took the time to listen, was kind, and very caring. I've sent many friends to him, and they've been very happy with him as well. He also helps those who don't have insurance while those individuals have been turned away by the rest.
