Ratings for Dr. Richard E. Davis
Absolute genius, I highly recommend. I had a primary rhinoplasty with Dr. Kanodia, who took off too much cartilage and bone. I subsequently had many regions elsewhere, which never fixed the problem. I then met Dr. Davis/had a revision rhinoplasty using rib grafts, and my nose now looks ideal. He's truly the most talented surgeon/a great person too.
He seems like a great doctor on paper: performs many revisions per year, has a good bedside manner, thoroughly explains symptoms, seems conservative. However, he can cause quite a bit of damage to the nose. My nose was minorly underprojected and rotated. Now it looks like a Halloween, prosthetic nose (super projected tip). In addition my mid -vault collapsed making the bridge now look very crooked from the side. I have posted photos on RealSelf of the symptoms. Overall, I've seen cases of his good work. He seems good at helping people who need a lot of projection. So, if that's not what you're looking for, PLEASE wait until you can find someone else.
I had a rhinoplasty revision with the dr. davis, and my results were very poor. Have been left with a very large nose and asymmetrical, and with breathing problems. This experience has left me with so much suffering and anguish, and i am ashamed for the fist time of my aesthetic appearance.
I had two surgeries with Davis. The first surgery, the rib warped severely causing extreme crooked nose deformity. I went ahead and had a second surgery to fix the warped rib, but my nose is STILL crooked and even. The profiles on each side of my face looks completely different. To make matters worse, I am unable to breathe fully out of one nostril as it is filled up with scar tissue. And I had a retracted nostril from a previous surgeon that he was unable to fix after two surgeries. I spend $30,000 altogether on two surgeries with him and I wouldn;t have paid $2000 for the job he did. I now understand who he truly is because after the second surgery, he treated me terribly and I do not feel comfortable going back to that office. And I do believe he does not accept responsibility for his inept work and looks for ways to blame the patient. Now i see him for who he is and understand that his work may be not as good as some have commented. I will seek to have a revision with an competent surgeon who have fix my crooked nose, retracted nostril and breathing issues once and for all.
Dear Dr. Davis, I am sure you have gotten countless letters thanking you for giving people their confidence back and turning them into their most beautiful self after surgery. I feel this way too but for me this process has meant much more. I want to thank you for being a doctor that has made me feel safe. Thank you for being caring and for being an honest person. The moment I sat down to consult with you, it was as if my worries subsided. You were honest and fair while talking about the surgery and explained all possibilities in regards to the Before meeting with you, I researched and traveled to find a doctor such as yourself. Many surgeons spent 15 minutes with me and were impossible to get into contact with about questions and concerns regarding the surgery. Not one explained cost and insurance options as you did. I knew exactly what I was getting into. Our initial consultation lasted three hours. At that point, you did not know if I was going to schedule a procedure. You the time to take pictures yourself (I have never experienced this), and go over options while explaining the in-depth procedure. I left confident that you were the surgeon for me. You included me every step of the way. After the surgery, you came to my bedside and made me feel cared about. You answered calls when I was home and felt nervous. You followed up with multiple appointments. You explained the progression of healing. After an 8 1/2 surgery, I was bruise feel and with minimal swelling in just three weeks. Your technique is gentle and precise and I can not say how lucky I feel to have you a part of my journey.
First of all this doctor never admits his failures, had rhinoplasty surgery done by him, left me a crooked nose, deviated septum, nostrils contracted and cartilage hanging, he never owed the problem he created. Was told his surgery equals to someone getting out of his residency in Plastic surgery. He had a resident doctor by his side during my surgery. I believe he had that person do the rhino while he watched while I pay for him to do it. Obviously he denies it. Now I will have to spend another 10k to have reputable plastic surgeon correct his mistakes, plus endure pain and suffering from another surgery! BEWARE!
Dr. Davis saved my face. I had a horrible nose job years ago by terrible surgeon who left me with a crooked upturned nose. I had to live with that nose for almost 10 years until I met Dr. Davis. He basically built my nose from scratch. I had no bridge before you he used rib graft to rebuild it. It looks so natural no one can tell I had a rhinoplasty. It is unbelievable! He is an expert and has more than 20 years of experience so don't pay attention to those negative reviews! I can tell a lot of them are fake because they never post pictures and when I try to contact them because I wanna hear about their story and see pictures they never reply. Uhmmm suspicious! The ones that are true are probably crazy patients with unrealistic expectations who will never be satisfied. I know some people who has had several rhinoplasties even though they neever neeeded them and are still unhappy, so please beware pf all the fake reviews! Talk to real people and if there are no pictures then there is no proof! If you want the best fo to Dr. D! He is the only one I would trust. Besides he is one of the sweetest and nicest people I've ever met and really cares about his patients unlike other doctors who just care about money!
I had 2 previous surgeries on my nose. This was my final shot. He corrected the mistakes the other plastic surgeons made. You must do exactly as he says after the surgery or you will not get the best result. Dr Davis is considered one of the best for revisional rhinoplasty in the country. I am lucky I found him.
Dr. Davis is very nice, but there is no distinguishable difference in my nose. Once the swelling went away it looked the same as it did before. He tends to take pictures right after surgery, so be careful about going with those results. It takes months to see the final result. I am going to Le in Baltimore for another go at it. I'm hoping he can actually build the nose back for me so it isn't crocked and dented and doesn't look like a bad nose job.
