Dr. David Hidalgo, MDDavid Hidalgo is scammer w/o any professionalism or empathy for patient
I will admit that my case was a complex one. I was looking for a doctor to get my rhinoplasty revision done. When searching online, I learned about Dr. David Hidalgo.
I immediately called his office to get the appointment. Little did I know that he was just another con artist.
Also, when I spoke with the receptionist, she did not inform me about the $300 consultation fee.
This did not even include the surgery charges.
She just told me to meet the next day in the afternoon.
I stay too far from the office. So, I requested if she could reschedule it for the evening. But she said that the slot wasn’t empty.
I agreed but had to apply for leave at my work. I reached on time as discussed with that lady.
However, the doctor wasn’t available. The receptionist told me Dr. David was busy with surgery and would talk to me in an hour.
I waited for almost 3 hours before I was called inside.
Technically, he met me in the evening and not afternoon. This was very unprofessional of him.
Not just that, the doctor reassured me that the transformation would look natural and blended. He said the procedure wouldn’t be as tricky as I suggested. All those things made me feel that he knew his job.
However, when the surgery was completed, the results were scary. He made my nose look more prominent instead of more minor. It is different but not the way I asked for.
Not just that, it appears witchy when I smile and even broader than before. It is not at all feminine, as we discussed. And far from elegant.
A little has changed in terms of the botched nose I hated. But nothing worth the investment I made, both financially and emotionally.
On top of that, after surgery, the nurse took off my bandages and left for 40 minutes before the doctor arrived. I was alone and cried when I looked in the mirror.
I was not able to see my nostrils. It felt like I made a huge mistake and left wondering if there was an explanation for this hideous change.
When the doctor came, he told me that the problem was because of the swelling and it will go in a few weeks. And it did get better after a week, and I could look at my nostril.
But the pain those 40 minutes caused me was freaking scary. Dr. David does not have empathy for his patients.
He is a liar and does not know his job. He is very expensive. Plus, his unprofessionalism is beyond tolerable.
I am unfortunate and repented the day I called his office. I must have never walked into his office.
I am never going to recommend this doctor to anyone. He is a nightmare, and his work is the worst. Stay away!!!!

My experience has been nothing less than wonderful. The staff has been extremely helpful through each step, and Dr. Hidalgo has been very informative and gave me a sense of comfort from the very first day I walked in the office through the actual surgery. I am thrilled with my results and would highly recommend Dr. Hidalgo.
