I was diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea in March of 2013. Since my sleep apnea was due to a problem with my jaw, I asked my ENT if he could recommend an oral & maxillofacial surgeon in the New York City area that had experience with treating patients with sleep apnea. He recommended Dr. Jamali and I’m so glad that he did. Here are some of my reflections about Dr. Jamali from working with him over the last several months: Professional and cordial - Dr. Jamali is very serious about his work. But, he’s also very friendly and approachable and makes you feel at ease from the first conversation. He listens very attentively to whatever you have to say and answers every question thoughtfully, no matter how silly you may think your question is. You never feel like you are being talked down to or rushed. He treats you like a partner in the process. Attentive to detail, understands facial harmony and aesthetics – During the initial consultation, after sitting down and speaking with me about my sleep apnea, Dr. Jamali carefully examined my face, took photos, and took 360 degree and standard x-rays. Then he spent the next few days carefully studying the images, alongside the results of my sleep study. He concluded that I would benefit most from a Lefort 1 osteotomy on my maxilla, and a bilateral sagittal split osteotomy and sliding genioplasty on my mandibula. In our follow-up appointment a week later, he sat down with me and showed me carefully rendered technical drawings that he had made on tracing paper from my x-rays. By placing his drawings on top of my actual x-rays, Dr. Jamali gave me a very detailed picture of exactly how my jaw and chin would change in relation to the rest of the skull and the precise measurements and degrees/angles of those changes – something I wouldn’t have gotten from computer imaging alone. Even though the procedure was done for medical reasons, Dr. Jamali still made sure that the results were aesthetically balanced. I’m thrilled to say that I no longer suffer from sleep apnea and have a vastly improved jaw and chin as well. His training, knowledge, attention to detail, careful planning, and excellent eye for aesthetics made this possible. An advocate for his patients – My insurance provider did not initially approve the procedure. So Dr. Jamali went through the entire appeal process, submitting more than what was required, and finally, speaking at length with one of their doctors. As a result of Dr. Jamali’s determined efforts and genuine concern for my welfare, the procedure was ultimately approved. Gentle – Dr. Jamali placed surgical braces on my teeth the day before the surgery. Since this was to be done under local anesthetic, he had to inject me several times deep into my gums to numb them. It wasn’t fun, but Dr. Jamali was as gentle as could be, asking me how I felt every step of the way and apologizing if I ever showed any signs of discomfort. Dr. Jamali was also extraordinarily gentle during the actual surgery. I know that because the swelling in my face is nowhere near as bad as it was for others who had had similar procedures done and whose photos I had seen on the Internet. In fact, after only 1 week, I would say about 80% of the swelling that I had on the day following surgery is gone, so much so that you wouldn’t be able to tell by looking at me that I had undergone such a major procedure. This is because Dr. Jamali was very careful and gentle during the surgery. Thorough – Prior to the surgery, Dr. Jamali spoke to me personally, in detail, about all of the possible complications related to this procedure, such as: swelling, facial numbness, changes in appearance, risk of infection, adverse reaction to screws and plates, etc. He could have just sent me home with generic, printed, post-op instructions, but he wanted to be sure that I understood exactly what I was about to go through. Because of this, I felt surprisingly at ease going into surgery and felt quite prepared for the recovery as well. And to his credit, there have been no surprises so far in the recovery process – he covered everything. Accessible – Just prior to surgery, Dr. Jamali gave me his personal cell number so that I could text him with questions or concerns any time, day or night, during the recovery process. Whenever I had any questions about my symptoms or needed more medication, he was always quick to respond. Caring – Perhaps the most remarkable thing about Dr. Jamali was this: While I was recovering overnight in the hospital, he stayed in the room next door to mine so that he could monitor my recovery and make sure that I was being cared for properly. What other doctor would do that? Excellent staff – While this isn’t a reflection on Dr. Jamali per se, I feel it is important to note his excellent staff because you will be working with them just as much as you will be with Dr. Jamali himself. Enid, the office manager, is extraordinarily helpful, very organized, and super-friendly. Sometimes I would call or email the office several times a day with questions but she would always be courteous and prompt with her replies. She always made sure that all of my paperwork was in order and submitted in a timely fashion, especially to the insurance company and hospital. She even called to check up on me while I was recovering at home from the surgery. All of her efforts made this already positive experience even more positive for me.
