Patient Reviews and Recommendations for Dr. Nathan Monhian, MD, FACS
Patient reviewed onJuly 26th, 2015
I was referred to Dr. Monhian to have a large cyst removed from behind my ear. Dr. Monhian did an amazing job. He is very kind and made me feel very comfortable every time I was in his office. Prior to the surgery Dr. Monhian told me exactly how the procedure was going to go and put any hesitations or fears I had to rest. He is very through and I was amazed by the results. This was a large cyst which required a rather large incision but Dr. Monhian did an amazing job hiding it along my hairline.

I met Dr. Monhian under dire circumstances. I was assaulted last summer, suffering three lacerations on my face. Dr. Monhian performed surgery to close the wounds. He has excellent bedside manner and is a extremely skilled and talented physician. Six months later I had a septoplasty and rhinoplasty due to chronic sinusitis. To date I have had no issues with sinusitis and am extremely pleased with the appearance of my nose. I would strongly recommned Dr. Monhian to anyone for both is professional

Dr. Monhian is one of the most talented and caring doctors I have ever met. He took the time to answer all of my questions and made sure that I was comfortable every step of the way. As a result of his commitment to perfection, I have the nose that I wished I was born with and am able to breathe for the first time in my life. I have and will continue to recommend him to my friends and family.
