Ratings for Dr. Joseph P. Fodero
I was referred to Dr. Fodero because I needed someone skilled in revisions. After 3 previous rhinoplasty procedures, the bridge of my nose was deformed and the cartilage misshapen and crooked. The preparation involved multiple appointments allowing us to screen each other, to confirm the goal and make a plan. I scheduled to go ahead in May. I've had a very good recovery and am really pleased after less than a month. Even with some swelling still, I have more symmetry and a normal shape. The procedure and outcome could not have been better. Dr. Fodero's staff was very supportive and responsive to questions and my anxiety. The in-house surgical clinic is well-designed and seems to add comfort and efficiency. The entire team (kudos to Jennifer and the anesthesiologist!) were absolutely wonderful. I am profoundly grateful to have found the right mix of experience and skill in Dr. Fodero and his practice. I highly recommend him!
My daughter had rhinoplasty with Dr. Fodero Two years ago. He showed us pictures on the computer of what her nose would look like after surgery and it was nothing like he promissed. He got ride of the bump but her nose looks wider and not much shorter. He barely touched the tip of her nose and left her with a scar on the side of her nose. I would not recommend this doctor for rhinoplasty.
Had initial rhinoplasty with Dr Fodero, although the work was not horrible and I wasn't left looking botched, the work wasn't great either. The bump was taken out for the most part, but my nose was left more crooked and the valve was collapsed. If you are looking for more perfection / tip work, look elsewhere. He doesn't like touching tips in general.
I was referred to Dr. Fodero by Morristown Memorial Hospital Emergency room to correct 2 missed lacerated tendons from a recent accident. They were able to fit me in for consultation and surgery the following day @ MMH. After all was said & done I felt as if I had known Dr Fodero & staff for years ; that's how comfortable they make you feel. The outcome of the surgery was 5* . I'm now using Dr Fodero for more corrective procedures and would highly recommend everyone t use him.
I received rhinoplasty from Dr. Fodero in March. I could not be more pleased with my experience and results! From the first time I visited for a consultation, the staff was welcoming and accommodating. They all stayed past their closing time to work with my busy schedule. During the consultation, Dr. Fodero was very thorough, answering the questions I had before I even asked them. He was very honest and extremely patient. I came back two more times before I even booked my appointment to talk some more and make sure this was a decision I wanted to make. Each time, he did not pressure me or try to "sell" me on the surgery. He actually did quite the opposite. He suggested I wait and think about it and even visit other surgeons to ensure I was making the decision that was right for me. I ended up booking the surgery and I am so pleased that I did. The morning of the surgery, I was extremely nervous. The staff kept me calm and smiling. The nurse that gave me my IV was excellent! I did not feel a thing. The anesthesiologist was also superb! I usually have a lot of issues waking up from anesthesia, but she gave me the perfect amount so I was feeling great after surgery. The surgery went smoothly and for the week after, Dr. Fodero was gracious and returned all my phone calls, even if the questions I had were silly. Overall, Dr. Fodero is an extremely talented surgeon whom I would reccommend to anyone. I would absolutely return to his office for another procedure in the future.
AWFUL DOCTOR, WORSE MAN. I came in with a hand injury being sent from the emergency room. I had no insurance and to their credit they do work with that, but perhaps because I'm not a high paying cosmetic patient Dr Fodero was so rude and had no bedside manner. He acted like he had better things to do and gave me less than 2 minutes of his time. No bedside manner and didn't even allow me to ask a question.
Dr. Fodero is a talented plastic surgeon who I cannot recommend highly enough! I was referred to him by a friend/colleague who has had multiple surgeries by him (and she looks amazing!). He was the third surgeon that I consulted regarding a small tattoo that I wanted removed. The previous two had recommended laser removal. He acknowledged laser removal as an option, and could have performed it in his office, but instead suggested excising the tattoo during a regular appointment saving me a lot of both time and money. In about 10 minutes my tattoo was gone with only a tiny scar that is almost undetectable. His office is state of the art--beautiful, but not intimidating--and his staff is extremely friendly. I am definitely going back for Fraxel, Botox, and to discuss rhinoplasty. As a physician myself, I know many other doctors in the community who offer similar services, but Dr. Fodero is uniquely skilled and I recommend him to my colleagues and all of my closest friends!
Dr. Fodero is very good at convincing people of his work, but the results are never what he promises. Do not use him for rhinoplasty. Before surgery I had read poor reviews, but still took the chance and now regret it. His assistant Dee is not honest or helpful.
Dr. Fodero was very realistic and accurate when discussing the potential results of my surgery. The end result was very satisfying and was completely up to my expectation. Overall, the facility is clean, attractively appointed and furnished, comfortable, and state of the art. There was no need to have my surgical procedure performed in a hospital environment. I was the only patient that day and received extremely personalized and attentive service. I highly recommend Dr. Fodero if you are considering cosmetic surgery.
