I came to Dr. Dorfman due to a prior frontal sinus & nose surgery, as a result of a car accident. Dr. Dorfman took me as a patient and performed the surgery with such skill, presicion and care. As a result 6 month later, I'm on my way almost completely healed and look great! You can hardly tell anything ever happened! It had had been a huge concern for me but Dr. Parkman is so talented that all those initial worries were laid to rest. I'd recommend him highly! I reuired both screw & plates during my surgery and they are barely noticable, he's truly great! Thank you Dr. Dorfman!!
