#11. When I had the 1st weight put in my eyelid the visit began with Dr. Stephan explaining to dr. working with him how to choose the weight how to clean the eyelid and where to place the weight. Understanding that Vanderbilt is a teaching hospital I didn't think it strange. However, when Dr. Stephan was NOT present when the weight was put in I was VERY uncomfortable - I had to return because it was the wrong weight put in the wrong place. I can not help but think this was because Dr. Stephan wasn't present.

I have already said that the surgery did not go as Dr Scott Stephan planned....he did not anticipate the blocked nostril and valve collapse ....I live with this everyday left nostril being blocked....have no confidence that he can help me even though he wants to do more surgery ....would you let a surgeon put you to sleep again and trust he can make things better when they are worse....I have already cried....that did not fix anything the nostril is still blocked...
Patient | June 21, 2016

Dr. Stephan has been with me through this journey every step of the way. He is an awesome caring physician!
Patient | June 21, 2016

I have already recommended Dr. Stephan to others in need of his services. I am so lucky that he was able to work on my nose.
