Before, during and after surgeries Dr. Chi has been caring, friendly and answered any questions my wife or I had. Dr. Chi’s staff have also been friendly and supportive. The surgeries have been very successful, I would recommend Dr. Chi to anyone who is required to have plastic surgery.

Dr. Chi’s work is flawless. He was concerned about me as an individual and clearly explained the procedure. I have had amazing results and NO scaring.

Cancer Removed, VN

I was very anxious about my procedure and Dr. Chi was very patient and caring. He explained the procedure thoroughly and transparently and did an amazing job. He couldn’t have a better ‘great to see you’ and ‘how else can I help you’ attitude. The nurses and desk attendants were the same way. I walked away from every appointment smiling. Thank you Dr. Chi!

Dr. Chi is literally a breath of fresh air! After taking a softball to the face while coaching 5+ years ago and being unable to breathe out of my left nostril as a result, I finally took the steps to correct it and was referred to Dr. Chi to repair my septum. Dr. Chi took great care and detail in answering all my questions in every step of the process. Dr. Chi and his staff are very attentive, patient and thorough. I am very grateful for their care and to be able to breathe out of both nostrils again. As stated, the ease of communication and the standard of care have been a breath of fresh air!

A Breath Of Fresh Air, ML

Dr. Chi is a fantastic surgeon. After breaking my nose multiple times as a teenager, I was left with a deviated septum and a collapsed nasal cavity. I was almost completely unable to breathe through my nose, but aesthetically, my nose looked fine. From our initial meetings, I was a bit nervous that my nose was going to look dramatically different (larger). Three weeks post-op, and I am thrilled with my results. I can’t remember the last time I could breathe this easily through my nose. In addition, my nose has almost completely returned to its initial size and shape. Thank you Dr. Chi!

Breathing Easy After Injury, SA

Dr. John Chi and his staff put me at ease when I needed plastic surgery recently. They were professional and showed great concern to keep me comfortable throughout my procedure. I would highly recommend Dr. Chi for any plastic surgery.
