I'll go ahead and add to all the positive reviews of Dr. Rival. I had an excellent experience from the beginning to end with Dr Rival. Nadia was lovely and is very quick to answer emails and calls. Dr Rival was very considerate to my needs and ensured that we were on the same page. He has a very calming presence and is a very compassionate doctor.The consultation was very thorough and he took his time with me to understand my needs. The day of my rhinoplasty surgery was blissful ...all the staff and Dr Rival were very kind and reassuring. We talked before the surgery to go over what we were doing and he makes sure to check up on you a few times after surgery to see how you're doing. The recovery was smooth and I am loving the results ! thanks!

I had my nose surgery done by Dr. Rival. It was one of the best and most life changing decisions I have ever made. I am so happy with the results, I get many compliments on it. I put my full confidence in this doctor and would recommend him to anyone wanting any type of cosmetic surgery, especially rhinoplasty. My confidence has grown immensely since the surgery and I have my amazing doctor to thank for that. I highly recommend Dr. Rival

I had spent years pondering whether or not to undergo yet another rhinoplasty procedure. My first experience was extremely unpleasant - the results of which - unsatisfactory. I finally jumped into researching Toronto surgeons out of curiosity and narrowed it down to two. The first surgeon barely spent five minutes with me during my consultation and I was tempted to cancel my appointment with Dr. Rival but I'm so glad I didn't. Whereas the first surgeon left me feeling deflated, Dr. Rival helped alleviate my nerves entirely. He took his time to listen to my concerns and together we came up with the right tweeks to perfect my nose. And he delivered exactly what I expected. My recovery was much swifter than the first surgery and the nurses were wonderful. Two months on, I'm really loving what I see. I'm eager to see what it looks like a year from now. Dr. Rival took his time when he met with me and truly listened to what I was saying. I know this because what I ended up with was exactly what I wanted.

I am very happy with the work that Dr. Rival did on my nose. Previously, I underwent a septoplasty with another surgeon (ENT) for my deviated septum that contributed to issues with inhaling and exhaling air. Although my septum was straighened, the outward appearance of my nose especially the tip were negatively affected. I waited 5 years before deciding to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rival. I expressed my concerns with the tip of my nose and a part of the side. Dr. Rival examined my nose and used an app to show me what he thought would be a realistic result that he could achieve. I was happy with that result and booked my surgery with him. After the initial consultation, I mostly interacted with his assistant Nadia to complete the pre-surgical administrative procedures. Nadia was a pleasure to talk to and despite my busy schedule she went above and beyond to accommodate me. I was given a package that included detailed pre and post surgical instructions. The day of my surgery, I was driven to the private clinic location on Eglinton ave and was taken to a very nice and comfortable room. A nurse did an initial assessment of me, then Dr. Rival came to explain the surgery again and the anesthesiologist came to explain the anesthesia portion. After the surgery, I awoke with a nurse next to me. I couldn't believe how little pain I felt and how alert I was. I had to wear a cast on my nose for 5 days after which I went to Dr. Rival's clinic and he removed it.

Dr. Rival and his staff are amazing! I am 20 years old and I had decided to seriously start looking into getting rhinoplasty surgery a few months ago after many years of having been bullied. It caused me great anxiety whenever I went out in public and I even had to deal with depression. I started researching different surgeons and Dr. Rival's reviews were all so positive and I am SO happy with my decision. I had gotten my rhinoplasty surgery in July and I am so pleased with my results thus far and with the entire process, and the healing process went smoothly and so well. Dr. Rival and his staff are very nice and he is very knowledgeable, he is not intimidating at all and makes you feel very comfortable. He listens to what you want and gives great insights and suggestions but never pushes his opinion on you! Overall I am so thrilled with my entire experience, this is something I have always wanted and I am so glad Dr. Rival and his staff could help make this experience great. I highly recommend him!

I had septorhinoplasty surgery with Dr. Rival in June 2015 and I am extremely pleased with the results. I am in my mid-40s and have wanted my nose done since I was in my early teens. My nose had a bump and a long, wider tip that hooked when I smiled and, as a result, I was also particularly sensitive of my profile. I had researched various doctors over the years but did not find one that I fully trusted to do what I wanted. I am so thankful to have found Dr. Rival and that I chose him to do this surgery. During our consultation, he was very knowledgeable, honest and kind. He made me feel at ease and comfortable and I did not feel rushed at all. He took the time to understand my needs and the fact that, at my age, I wanted something very subtle that would not change my look. And the computer imaging he does is so helpful. He explained the procedure and was clear in setting my expectations - both for how my nose would look and for the healing process. It has been 5 months and I have to say that the results have exceeded my expectations! Dr. Rival removed the bump, slightly thinned and shortened the tip and my nose is straight in profile as I had wanted. It is so natural looking and suits my face so well that it looks like the nose I had been born with. No one can tell that I had my nose done but have since received compliments that I look great AND younger! My best compliment (received from someone who knows of my surgery) was that I still look like me. And I think so too, but better! I love my new nose! The entire process – from beginning to end - was handled with care, professionalism and expertise. And Nadia, Dr. Rival’s secretary, is simply wonderful and so efficient: she made all interactions a pleasure. She was always available to quickly answer my questions and was accommodating with appointment times. With regard to my recovery – it was excellent and I healed quickly and experienced very little pain or bruising. I have some swelling but it is not noticeable and is quickly going down as expected. I would happily recommend Dr. Rival to anyone interested in rhinoplasty. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made and have no regrets at all. Dr. Rival is a genius, with incredible skill and talent. Thank you so much, Dr. Rival!!

I am a 50 year old woman and I had a septorhinoplasty done two months ago (July 2015). Dr. Rival did an excellent job! My nose was crooked and I had a bump on it. He made it look natural and many people commented on how great it looked. It really suits my face much so that one would never even know that I had it done. I was concerned about the recovery but I healed quickly and with very little bruising or pain. I was surprised and excited with the outcome. I still have some swelling but it does take months until it goes down. I would highly recommend Dr. Rival to anyone who is deciding on a rhinoplasty procedure. His professionalism , kindness and expertise was what made him the top choice for me. If I had to do it all over again, he would be Dr. I would choose. Thanks to all his staff as well, especially Nadia , his secretary. She was informative and pleasant to talk to at any time. I am very happy with the results!!!!

So far I have been extremely happy with the results of my rhinoplasty. After thoroughly researching different doctors in Toronto, I made the decision to go with Dr. Rival. Once I consulted with him it was relatively clear that he was the right surgeon for me. He made me feel very comfortable and informed, and he understood all of my wishes. He exceeded my expectations and I could not be happier with the results and with him!!!!!!

Great doctor. Gives honest opinions. He does not need your money so will be honest and turn you away if he feels like you do not need to get something done. We need more doctors like him!
