I made an appointment for a rhinoplasty consultation with Dr. Ponsky and within the same day I was scheduling my surgery. Dr. Ponsky and her entire team made the process extremely easy and always took my thoughts and opinions into consideration. The team was especially responsive following my rhinoplasty, easily reachable to answer any questions and concerns I had. I am currently 7 months out from my rhinoplasty and the follow through care during my recovery has been outstanding. Dr. Ponsky truly ensures that my every need is met and that I am 100% happy with my results. Would highly recommend!

Dr Ponsky and all of her staff are incredibly professional and friendly. Ally and Jen, at the front desk, welcomed me with smiles and mints for my 3-year-old. Michael answered all of my questions and was so gentle as we discussed my [unfortunate] nose and potential rhinoplasty. It’s a very vulnerable place to put yourself in so I very much appreciated how they handled it. Dr Ponsky herself is friendly, efficient, and skilled. Everything I look for in a medical professional. I did extensive research prior to scheduling my consult with Dr Ponsky so I had high expectations and I was not disappointed. I have not regretted my rhinoplasty for a moment. Dr Ponsky took my nose and finessed it down to better fit my face. I wanted it to look real and natural, which is exactly what I got. I so appreciate having the before and after pictures from Lauren, the medical photographer. If you’re on the fence and have the funds, just do it. It’s worth it and there is no doctor more qualified than Dr Ponsky (have you seen her resume??). Thank you to Dr Ponsky and everyone at the office. I love seeing you all when I’m back for follow-ups!

Dr. Ponksy is truly a a miracle worker! Her work is truly amazing! I had rhinoplasty just a few weeks ago. I am so in love with my new nose already! It was such a quick recovery, and not painful at all. Dr. Ponsky provides instructions to follow as well that helps speeds things up. The office staff is so accommodating, and you can text them with any concerns/ questions. They will answer you right away! Michael and the front desk go above and beyond to ensure you have the best experience. After years of wanting rhinoplasty and consultations with other surgeons in the area, Dr. Ponsky is the only way to go! High recommended 10/10

Dr. Ponsky performed my rhinoplasty and I could not be happier with the results. After many years of debating of whether to do it or not, I finally made the decision. From the initial consultation to after the surgery, Dr. Ponsky and her team have been nothing but caring and supportive through the whole process. The procedure itself was smooth and with very little to no pain. It almost felt like a head cold for about 3 days but after that, I felt great. They really do a great job at preparing you for it weeks in advance and guide you through the whole thing. If you are considering a rhinoplasty, you will be in great hands with Dr. Ponsky, she is kind and one of the best at her job!
