Ratings for Dr. Mark Reichman
Dr. Reichman did my lower jaw advancement surgery. I was very impressed with his bedside manner - he took a lot of time to reassure me that my face wouldn't look too different and explained all the different options for surgery and possible outcomes. He also let me come in for multiple consults and said I was welcome to come back any time if I had more questions. I received the same exceptional treatment the day of surgery and when I was recovering in hospital. It was almost touching to see how much he cared about my emotional journey throughout the process - which makes me trust him VERY much as a surgeon. After all, he broke my face and put it back together! The only reason I docked a star for knowledge is because I feel like the outcome of surgery could've been better. It's over 2 years after my surgery and I have permanent numbness in the whole left half of my lower mouth (lip, gums, chin, inner cheek) which makes it a little more difficult to eat and I frequently bite my lip accidentally. While I was told there was a possibility of numbness I wasn't told the potential consequences of that (such as difficulty eating) and I feel like the risk is minimized. I know three other people who had jaw surgery with this Dr and we all have permanent numbness - though I was told it's only a 20% chance of any numbness after surgery. Something doesn't add up there. Additionally, I have a weird bump of bone sticking out on one side and it's quite tender. Almost like it wasn't smoothed out after surgery or didn't heal correctly. Not sure if that is just my body or due to surgical skills. In an ideal world I'd like to get a revision to smooth out that sore bump of bone and to take out the pins in the left side of my jaw in hopes that that alleviates the numbness, but due to cost I doubt that will be an option. Just remember that if you get this surgery, you could potentially have some negative side effects that last for life, as mine are frustrating and a little defeating. That being said, the patient care was really outstanding during my treatment.

I had multiple issue with my jaw due to trauma from fights and other accidents . Was very unhappy with my looks and the asymmetry of my jaw being the main reason. I found Dr Reichman and because of the previous 5 surgeries was very scared and skeptical of who would fix this problem for me . When meeting Dr Reichman he was very upfront that my would never go back to 100 percent of where it was . It was difficult to come to terms with that. Living in a world where our faces are the first thing people see it was hard looking in the mirror and knowing I hated had happened to me and my face . He told me to think about it for 6 months or a year if I needed to. Also told me to look around and get other consults . This was great advice and I did. Always having an intuition he was going to be the doctor to correct this problem. I waited over a year and kept in touch with Dr Reichman sporadically . I talked myself out of it mainly because I didn’t want to justify the cost . There was days I would lay In bed depressed thinking I was ugly . After going to a therapist and doing lots of recovery work I decided it was also time to surgically correct what happened to my face in a fight caused by alcoholism . Dr Reichman understood everything and was very caring knowing how much this meant to me not only for my looks but for my spirit to heal. We did the surgery without a problem and after the swelling went down I could see the dramatic improvement ! I finally felt like I was back to myself and have been so happy and back to myself : thank you at Reichman you are a wonderful doctor . The best of the best . It was worth every penny! Please if you want a caring ,upfront transparent , skillful and compassionate doctor consider this man.
I just had all four of my wisdom teeth removed today and was under IV sedation. The staff and Dr. Reichman were very punctual, on time, and all hard great bed-side manner. Going in I was so nervous, to the point of almost crying. Right away Dr. Reichman set me at ease, calmed me down, and even got me laughing. i don't remember the procedure it was honestly a blink. When I woke up and received post-care and monitoring from the nurses they were very vigilant and very caring. The office even phoned later on in the day to see how I was doing, which surprised and comforted me. I am still on my first day, so we will see how my recover continues, but after a couple tough hours with pain, my prescribed meds have done the trick and I am very comfortable and feel optimistic about my recovery. You are in very good hands with this oral surgery team. Thank you Dr. Reichman, you've made me a believer!
Best case scenario for wisdom teeth extraction. Was very nervous having never gone under IV sedation before, but Dr. Reichman and his staff walked me through everything in a calm yet informative manner. Came in at 9, and was already being put under within 10 min, very punctual. The whole appointment for 4 teeth took 30 min, and 20 min monitoring me while waking up from the anesthetic. Had them out yesterday and even on the second day I hardly have any pain/swelling.
I had SARPE surgery September 2016 with Dr. Reichman. He booked 2 hours for my consultation and answered every one of my questions and I never felt rushed. The surgery went well - no issues. I felt pretty good a few days after the surgery so I stopped taking my pain meds which was not a good idea but Dr. Reichman (who returned my call on a Sunday) talked me through it and got me back on track. I am very happy with the results and also the care I received.
I had a SARPE surgery in July 2017 with Dr. Reichman. I found him to be very pleasant to deal with, very caring and willing to provide information. I had many questions and worries about my surgery but I never felt like I was bothering him in the least. He did not sugarcoat anything, gave me all the facts upfront, and the recovery process went exactly as he had predicted. I really appreciated that and would not hesitate to recommend him!
