Good Choice - Northbrook, IL - Dr. Gutowski is a great surgeon, and all an around great guy. He's thoughtful, helpful, and passionate about his work. I decided that it was time for me to fix my nose. I found Dr. G on realself and e-mailed him with details about my dorsal hump that I was interested in removing. I was extremely impressed that he called me at 8pm to speak about the details of what I wanted. After a few moments of discussion, I scheduled a consultation with him. When I came in for the consultation, I was greeted pleasantly by the staff, and taken in immediately by the doctor. We discussed my options and he used computer imaging to predict my results. We decided on an open rhinoplasty, in order to remove more dorsal hump, and to refine my tip a bit because it was bulbous.Two weeks before my surgery I managed to be ridiculously late for my re-op consultation and the office was so understanding. I came in an hour and a half late but everyone smiled and had no problem with my clumsy mistake. I was taken in by Marta for a peel and right after that I saw Dr. Gutowski. I can't get over how nice everyone is at that office. It's great haha. Anyway, Dr. Gutowski saw me and explained my risks, post op instructions, etc. They gave me written instructions, and even some tips for my family and I for the post op emotional recovery time. This office goes above & beyond to make sure their patients feel comfortable.When my surgery date came, I was nervous because I've never had surgery before. My nurse Erin took me in and got me ready for the surgery. I met with my anesthesiologist (who's name I forgot) and he answered all the questions I had. As soon as I laid on the operation table, the lights went out & I woke up after the whole thing was over.In the recovery room Erin was there when I woke up & let me see my family. Dr. Gutowski came in to see me after the surgery and explained my care instructions. I was given water & oatmeal, and relaxed for a few moments longer until it was time to go. Erin gave me her phone number to reach her at anytime in case i needed any questions or help. I don't think I ever felt in the dark about anything throughout my whole experience. I totally recommend Dr. G to anyone looking for a surgeon. He, as well as his staff treat their patients very well. He even replied to me on a Sunday afternoon to an e-mail that I sent to him during my recovery about my healing concerns. (Now that's dedication (: ) Erin also called me after the surgery asking if I was feeling okay, answering all of my questions. I totally recommend him. More

Great Determination to Solve the Problem - Northbrook, IL - Scars can happen overnight, but to fix them takes years, I have been to few doctors before I came to Dr. Gutowski, and almost all the other doctors were more determined to clean my wallet then to fix my problem. Dr. Gutowski set the price and kept the promise. Even thought I went many times for the follow up. My problem was deformed lower lip due to the car accident that occurred seven years ago. Dr. Gutowski is still working on it, and I see the improvement. Tomasz Gielazyn. More
