Ratings for Dr. Rollin K. Daniel, Retired
WHAT CAN YOU DO? I've read all the Yelp posts and it sounds like this doctor has ruined a lot of noses and given even more condescending comments. Unfortunately, I experienced the same and am left with a severely cricked nose and a hole in my savings. I URGE YOU ALL to send your comments to the Medical Board of California. It's very easy, you can do it online if you wish: http://www.mbc.ca.gov/Consumers/Complaints/ Please think of all the people that will avoid future suffering at his hands. It's the right thing to do and there is NO harm or punishment. It's all kept confidential. You can even copy and paste your yelp post to their site. The medical board will never release your information. To all of you that have experienced a botched nose job at his hands only to be ridiculed afterwards by him, I feel your pain and hope you find someone worth trusting. It's been 3 years for me and I still have a hard time looking in mirrors. Sending good energy to you all.
I can not express how grateful and appreciative I am of Dr. Daniel. He worked absolute magic on my nose. My nose developed a saddle deformity from an infection and it was getting worse month by month. I was referred to Dr. Daniel from my ear, nose, and throat specialist in Las Vegas. I was told he was the best, especially for this type of reconstructive procedure. I needed a rib graft and complete reconstruction of the bridge of my nose. Dr. Daniels was very reassuring to me and also very kind. He took time to explain the procedure to me and was patient in answering all of my questions, right up to a few minutes before the procedure began. His office staff was very kind, punctual and caring. I would recommend Dr. Daniels to anyone who is looking for the absolute best in the business. He wrote the book on the type of procedure he performed on me. Thank you again Dr. Daniels! Your talents not only brought my face back to where it was before the infection, but also improved my overall looks!
I had my surgery about 6 months ago and my nostrils are very uneven! My right nostril goes up much higher than the left and it looks like the bridge of my nose is starting to collapse on the right side as the swelling is going down. I'm so devastated with the outcome over my nose. I went in hating my side profile and now I'm coming out hating my front profile. He did a great job with my side profile but now I feel my front profile is ruined. I'm scared to go under another revision and it not coming out any better. I know that a surgeon won't touch my nose for at least 1 full year post surgery, but I don't know what to do! :( I don't know whether I should let Dr. Daniels try to fix it or just go to another surgeon all together. Every time I look in the mirror I want to cry because I hate my nose so much! I feel like my nose should have been an easy fix. All I wanted was the bump removed and the bridge of my nose narrowed. I didn't want to change the tip or shape of my nostrils.
Rarely do you find a doctor with such unbelievable passion! Tomorrow marks my 1-week since my rhinoplasty, and I could not be happier and more pleased with my new nose. Dr. Daniel is *THE* best out there. He is renown all over the world for his expertise in his field and the number of quality patient results. On top of everything, the moment you walk into the office, everyone there cares about you at a level that I had not experienced with any other doctors in OC. If you want a quality nose job that you will be proud of and live with for the rest of your life, make sure that whichever doctor you choose *focuses* on rhinoplasty, not all-other-kinds-of-cosmetic-surgery. You need to trust someone who knows this procedure inside and out, has years of experience behind their work, and can prove it by pulling out an overstuffed binder (no joke) full of so many incredible, naturally-looking results! I hope you each find the cutest nose and best experience; I certainly did. Good luck!! =)
Dr. Daniel performed my rhinoplasty in February 2011. I was recommended to him by another plastic surgeon, although this was a primary surgery for me. The results are beautiful. The surgery and recovery were as expected. The nursing staff and patient coordinator were very helpful both before and after the surgery. I am pleased with my experience and am now two years' post-op.
I had a very positive experience with dr. Rollin. He met with me at the beginning of the week and his helpful staff helped me find the next available time for surgery. I've called the office many times and his staff has always been kind, responsive, and informative. I went to a more expensive surgeon in beverly hills and I chose dr. rollin because he was much more personal and gave me individual attention. His staff, Judy and Amy are lovely and super sweet. They sent multiple faxes for me and never failed to answer my endless questions and concerns. I'm one week post op and my bruises have disappeared for the most part and I love the results already even though there is still some swelling. I strongly recommend this office.
I would not recommend Dr. Daniel. After three surgeries with him, my nostrils are very uneven and I cannot breathe properly. I firmly believe this is because of a string of errors he made. I am now in the position of having to find another doctor to fix what he did.
About four years ago, Dr. Daniel agreed to perform a rhinoplasty for me, and then later cancelled because (I believe) he felt my case was too complex for him. My nose worked on before, and one breathing passage (on the left side) was obstructed. While I was able to see and identify the obstruction, Dr. Daniel could not. (I think he stuck his lighted scope right past the obstruction.) His staff was rude and condescending, telling me, "Doctor would have SEEN that . . . Doctor knows about such things." I got the impression at the time that Dr. Daniel was cashing in on his fame as an author of medical textbooks, and he had no sense of aesthetics. I noticed that he did not even shave his own face very well, having left stray hairs below his own nose. On the positive side, Dr. Daniel was honest. He promptly refunded the $12k I had paid him, and he probably picked up the cost of the pre-surgical lab work. Overall, I would not recommend him or his staff to anyone.
