All My Doctors Said He was the Best

Dr Shvidler performed reconstructive surgery on my nose after a large portion of it was cut off during cancer surgery. Had one minor touchup after the primary surgery and am extremely pleased with the outcome. All my other doctors said he was the best around in handling this type of surgery, and after seeing the outcome, I agree with them. I highly recommend Dr. Shvidler.

After a biopsy came back positive for melanoma, I was referred to Dr. Shvidler. His office staff called me the same day they received the referral from the dermatologist! I was scheduled to see Dr. Shvidler the next afternoon. I had surgery the following week. He explained the procedure and possible outcomes thoroughly. He met with my daughter and me before the surgery. We both felt confident going into the procedure- Not that my face would be flawless after removal of the tumor, but that he would do his best and the tumor would be completely removed. His care for his patients is thorough and exceptional. His staff was also incredible.

I can breathe! I’d been told after a surgery to live with the results which did not fix all my breathing issues with nose. Dr Shvidler did and I’m so grateful! His staff is delightful and scheduling was no problem. For any future issues I will trust them with this doctor.

Well Done!

I needed a significant portion of my nose reconstructed after a Mohs procedure to remove skin cancer. Dr. Schvidler did an outstanding job recreating the shape and contours of my nose with precious little “real estate” to work with. Well done!

Five Stars

I lost most of the right side of my nose from cancer. Dr. Shvidler reconstructed a nostril with tissue from my forehead. He filled in the flesh part of my nose, again from my forehead & used cartilage from my right ear to reinforce it so it wouldn’t collapse. I was overwhelmed at the whole thing, but had to trust him! Three surgeries later I have a fine nose that matches my left side! I am truly amazed at Dr. Shvidler’s skill as a surgeon. He is truly gifted in his profession and an answer to my prayers. You are in good hands if you are with Dr. Shvidler!

From an Artist’s Point of View

I went to Dr. Schvidler for a Deviated septum. Breathing was my first priority, aesthetics second. Now that my surgery is done… I look back at my old nose and cringe because my new nose is so pretty!!! We discussed some things that had bothered me about my nose, he talked to me from an artist’s point of view. He was very knowledgeable. Great bedside manner! I can breathe great AND I LOVE LOVE LOVE MY NEW NOSE!!!

I lost half of my nose to melanoma. I had three surgeries done in order to achieve the best outcome. Dr. Shvidler was pleased with the results. I was relieved! He created a new nostril and complete right side of my nose. It looks fine and I am very grateful! Dr. Shvidler is an answer to prayers. The whole experience was positive. I highly recommend his work!

Dr.Shvidler Saved my Face

I had to have my entire bottom right nostril removed due to skin cancer via Moh’s (at a different clinic). This is terrifying, especially since I’m not even 40 yet. DR. SHVIDLER SAVED MY FACE! He knows what he’s doing, he answered all my questions, and the results are nothing short of miraculous. I’m extremely thankful for the work he did, answering my zillions of questions, and clearly caring about how this impacts my life. Now-you wouldn’t know that a huge chunk of my nose was ever missing!

SoPleased with the Results

Dr Shvidler did a great job, he told me what to expect as far as the recovery was concerned so there were no surprises. There was a lot of swelling and pain afterwards but I followed his instructions and also took the pain medication he prescribed and felt and looked much better after a week. I am so pleased with the results that I will probably do it again in about 6 months.

Was a 2nd opinion. WAAAAYYY better. Nice office, nice Dr., pain free procedure, well explained, calmed all concerns. Seems very knowledgeable, kind, and listened. Wait time was a little long but totally worth it. Got me in right away after I called in. Explained my options, and respected my decision.

Professionalism, Friendliness, Care & Concern

I find myself trusting Dr. Shvidler’s care, guidance and recommendation implicitly. It is a blessing to be treated with the utmost professionalism, friendliness, care and level of concern that Dr. Joseph Shvidler consistently shows. Dr. Shvidler is direct and honest. When discussing care options – he is willing to listen and to be forthright about the possible outcomes (good and bad) of the procedures and surgeries. This is both refreshing and necessary for me to understand the treatment plan and what this “healing journey” includes. He is a gifted surgeon and specialist!

I Broke my Nose Skiing 25 Years Ago

I broke my nose skiing 25 years ago. I finally got tired of 2 sinus infections every year and did not sleep very well. I went to Dr. Shvidler because I was told he was the best. I’m happy I did. I had Septorhinoplasty, it was a tough first week, but only after a week I could not believe I waited this long to have the surgery. I sleep all night, I can breathe from both nostrils now and bonus he got rid on the bump on top of my nose. I highly recommend this doctor, really nice and takes time to talk to you to make sure you are satisfied.

Excellent Doctor with Impressive Credentials

Excellent doctor with impressive credentials. I would highly recommend this doctor, who is board certified in both ENT and Plastic surgery. And he is very personable. Other doctors I consulted lectured me and did not listen to me. Dr Schvidler did, and was very mindful of my concerns. He is the best in this area.

Unique inHisField

Dr. Joseph Shvidler is unique in his field, as he combines the wonderful qualities of technical skill, insight and compassion. He is forthright, yet personable. He conducted two procedures on me at Madigan Army Medical Center and both resulted in better inner and external health. I can’t say enough about this first-class professional. I would recommend him without question and I wish others will emulate him.

Amazing Surgeon – TrueArtist!

Dr. Shvidler was AMAZING. He really listened to what I had to say and really tried his best to make my nose as perfect as possible. The before and after pictures prove that he is not only an amazing surgeon, but a true artist! He asked me many questions so he really had an understanding of what I wanted. He was patient and answered every question I had. He explained things in a way that was easy to understand and was very honest about everything. His honesty about the procedure, the recovery, potential risk of infection, etc really allowed me to trust him. I went in to the surgery with no apprehension because I knew I was in amazing hands!

Superb Physician -Super Results

Dr Shvidler performed my rhinoplasty and I couldn’t be happier with the results! I feel like he’s under rated in the rhinoplasty world (online) only because I couldn’t find many reviews/photos but he is truly skilled. I couldn’t have wished for better results. From a cosmetic point of view, I feel like a new woman with a brand new sense of confidence. From a medical point of view, my breathing is even better. Which surprised me because I didn’t realize it could get better lol. Overall Dr Shvidler is a great surgeon and a sincere person.
