I cannot express how grateful I am for Dr Lahar and his staff. First of all, our first consult, I felt no pressure with him, as I did my extensive research on surgeons. He listened to my concerns and gave his own feedback. His staff has been so kind and thorough throughout this whole entire process. Day of surgery, I met with him and he went over what he was going to do and my anxiety went away. After surgery I remember him talking to me and following up when I went home. I had no pain after day 2 & I know it is because of his work. I work in healthcare also & on the other side of patient care I am a big baby but he was great, gentle with his hands, & quite the artist. Dr Lahar has great bedside manner, shows his highly trained skills and I am really glad I chose him for my rhinoplasty. One week post op and I am already thrilled with my result, can already feel the positive difference in my breathing, and cannot wait for the final result as my swelling goes down! Hands down the best surgeon in this business. Would highly recommend!”
