I highly suggest Dr. Jai and his company (Healthy Smiles of Georgia). He is very down to earth and has a great sense of humor. He listens and does not have an ego problem like alot of doctors. His office is very clean and he uses the newest technology for the best results. I have no plans on going to any other dentist.. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Firstly, please feel free to email me at [email protected] and I will happily provide you with before and after photos from my surgeries with Dr. Jones. What you WILL see what really happened is that I was a beautiful young girl with a narrow nose with a hump. He reduced it after asking him to take less rather than more to something shaped like an L, a so called V deformity. The width and asymmetry bothered me (the asymmetry on the center of the bridge--not even reduced symmetrically--and the unnatural depression--caused someone of Czech and Polish ancestry who could have been a model, had previously been selected for jobs, like all about that, considering agencies at 18, to look "tired and angry." Really it was sick I was driven by low self esteem to that surgery and he faciliated it when it wasn't right and then he continued to pull the string, that I was not in a right place to even have surgery mentally, barely being able to process reality or my beauty in the world. Again I was 18, physically abused as a child, was beautiful, but had very low self-esteem, the something's wrong with me complex.

He mocked me, would try to distract me when I complained that I didn't think I looked better. I read my earlier post before I got smarter, as I got older. If I was an adult, I would have never returned for a second or third surgery with him. But I was only 18 and easy to manipulate. And he enjoyed it.

So my biggest complaint was the appearance of width--was related to overresesection and not the outer bones on the cheeks, which is significant because it paints a picture to me of negligence, to continue to operate on other parts of the nose, endless septoplasties and osteotomies, while never properly identifying the problem. I still was never as pretty due to the depression and asymmetry of depression. Well he's not a very good doctor if he couldn't figure that out and communicate it to me, nope rather just stuff like "well you definitely look better than before" which when you email me at [email protected] I will show you that's not true. So he continued to perform surgeries which were destructive but never corrected the underlaying issue, which was this deep and asymmetrical cut into my bridge. Which he caused the first surgery! He made me undoubtedly look worse!!! Trying to tell me the human brain likes a little asymmetry. Just a passing comment, nothing clear that would have provided any healthy direction. If he's so great why isn't his own personal standard better? Even if I did screw up at 18 first shot trying to draw on photos what I wanted. I said not that. But he kept that photo. But even if he conveniently forgot, what about his own personal standard and ethic? Plenty of surgeons will say no.

And with regard to a little bit of assymetry, it really can ruin an incredibly beautiful face if it's in the middle of the face right below where the eyes meet. Funny I look prettier than usual when I wear fake eyelashes, help to restore the symmetry.

Even worse, the third surgrery, when I became certain, things were very wrong, he implanted alloderm on my forhead where there's a piece of my once roman nose but now a stump before the great V deformity depression and rather than correcting that with the alloderm he set it in a very beautiful forehead depression (like I'm eastern European so my eyes are set a little bit lower, above the nose, the depression on females between nose and forehead--stuck an asymmetrical chunk of alloderm--freeze dried cadaver he'd been trying to sell me on since my first surgery! And now it looks like I have a wrinkle, so imagine only making the stump where my hump once began more pronounced, and not addressing a depression, he never called a V deformity, but that's what it is. After 3 surgeries and 4 years, never once uttered that phrase but that's what it is. And other surgeons will identify it as well as websites immediately.

Why? I was very frustrated everytime I dealt with him. It makes me sound crazy to start to explain that he's jealous, dissatisfied, abusive, sick... It's just the case!

My older post was:

I am extremely traumatized and hurt by the actions of Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones. Not only was I hurt by the decline in my appearance (the before and after photos are documented below), I was hurt by him emotionally.
After my first surgery, he dropped several times that my cheeks were fat. Really they just looked that way because of the changed proportions of my face. Even when I asked him to not comment on my cheeks anymore, because they did not bother me and I did not believe them to be the source of my bad appearance, he could not contain himself from asking on several occasions whether I had gained weight on them.
Furthermore, after my first surgery, he told me that I looked better than before, which I’m sure many of you will dissagree with. Even beyond that, he would tell me about his young girl friend and how she was “too pretty.”
When I came back from a study abroad in the Netherlands, he asked me whether there were a lot of Eastern European prostitutes there.
I told him I liked my eyes and thought that they were beautiful before the third surgery (and they were pretty much the only remnant of my once special beauty) and one can easily see how he changed that part of my face with alloderm. We discussed my goals for years, being a narrow, symmetrical nose, One can see obviously from the placement of the alloderm that that is not what he did. He told me it was just swelling and that it would probably take a year to go away. Now I am told by doctors that it has turned into scar tissue which is difficult if not impossible to remove from my forehead. Why was he ever putting alloderm on my forehead?
I told him how disappointed I was with the results, and how before I was with a modeling agency, and his response was, “well, did you ever do anything?” As you can see, he was not supportive and I do not believe he ever acted in my interest. And the answer to that question was not yet but I was going to had you not ruined yes RUINED my face. Yeah I'm still alright, but funny how asymmetry (like a bridge that's already been cut off at an angle) will make you look worse. Another dr who saw his work, an Indian man, said that the shape of my nose did not exist in nature.

Dr. Jones sucks!!!
Before the first surgery, I told him I did not want my face to change a lot. I told him that “you can take more off, but you can’t put more on.” He took off so much from the middle portion of my nose that you couldn’t take anymore off without cutting into my sinuses. I even have a subtle scar because he cut so deeply.
Before the third surgery, I told him that I had broken up with my boyfriend because he was unsupportive after my second surgery. At my next visit, which I think was the pre-op, he told he was going to try and forget that I said that. Looming warning of what he would do to me as well as a sick and pathological attempt to justify doing wrong to me in my opinion, when really he was disappointed because he had begun hitting on me in those last couple years, inviting me to his house for Thanksgiving and telling me he admired me, which I never responded to because how could I want to be involved with a man who had hurt me so much, one who I distrusted, one who always rubbing his relationships in my face?
I said to him, “have mercy,” before that third septorhinoplasty because I had always suspected of him being abusive and spiteful towards me, but my friends and family reminded me that he was a professional and that it was in his interest that I look good. Also, at that pre-op, he alerted me that a small indendation acquired after the second surgery, that we had previously discussed being correctable by double osteotomy for two years prior to the surgery, was higher than doctors work. That’s how he got me to agree to the Alloderm.
He then unnecessarily performed a double osteotomy on my nasal bones, put alloderm between the nasal bridge and bone (preventing it from healing (leading to nasal collapse) and coupled all that with a ridiculously loose splint.
I have no greater regret in my life than going to Dr. Jones. I have been under stress and in emotional pain because of what he did to me for 5 years now. I went to an expert revision rhinoplasty surgeon and his estimate was 20,000, including a graft from my rib, to correct the overresection he performed the first surgery, after I had told him I didn’t want my face to change and that you could take more off but not put more on.
The best years of my life have passed. I once had a promising modeling career and ruining that wasn’t enough for Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones, he had to brainwash me into thinking I was never beautiful to begin with.
Even going to France was something he wanted to ruin for me. I had waited the two questionably long years for that third surgery. He asked me what my plans were and I told him that I was planning on studying abroad in France. He then tried to encourage me to wait until after my return from France to have a surgery.

Email [email protected] I will send you a before showing a beautiful sweet girl with a NARROW symmetrical nose, then you can see when circles under my eyes became more apparent, basically since then I haven't looked good head on because well my bridge is uneven. More depressed on one side where it's collapsed, been collapsed since the first surgery. I was only 18, no reason it shouldn't have healed, oops removed too much.

Then the solution to replace it. No he just took me on aimless rides, emotionally abusing me in the meantime, culminating in endless septoplasties and an implant that basically what a low man.

He pretends to be so classy, I'm sure he was jealous because I actually am related to noble people and he must have sensed this. He really wants to be something he's not, and I can tell by his motivation in deriving pleasure from abusing somebody and holding them back. And the endless sick and squirrelly things he has said to me.

Most importantly I've got photos to back it up. He can't stop me from the TRUTH!

I started seeing Dr. Jai a few months ago. I hadn't been to the dentist in a while, and had quite a bit of work to be done. Dr. Jai and his staff were very friendly, professional, and worked with my budget to help me get my healthy smile back! I highly recommend their services. Brad M.

Over a year ago I was treated by Dr. Jai Thirumalai and found him to be very professional. I highly recommend him. Also, his staff is courteous and most helpful. I have since returned for other dentist needs and continue to find his services exceptional. I'm sure you will also find his office to be friendly and a rewarding experience.

I went to the ER for an acute problem, and was very impressed with the service and quality of care all the way round. They were very quick, efficient, and the staff was very professional all around, from receptionists, nurses, imaging techs, to physicians. Most impressive, they took my insurance information at the end of the visit, allowing me to be seen quickly and have medical issues (which were painful but not dire) dealt with first. I am a health care professional myself, would recommend this hospital ER to anyone.

My wife just got out of Emory after having a mastectomy. Our experience was very mixed - some good and some very bad. The doctors were all amazing - very competent and personable and reassuring. Our trouble was with some of the nurses. The pre-op nurse, Tia, was seemingly incompetent with a flipant bedside manner that almost frightened my wife away from her surgery. I watched her misplace needles, tangle intravenous tubes and generally exude a "who cares" attitude. Even worse was the post-op nurse Tracy. I found my wife in post-op shivering from the cold and incredibly thirsty. Meanwhile, Tracy was absorbed on her Facebook page and couldn't care less. Getting her to get my wife extra blankets or some water was like getting my son to eat green beans - a huge task. And I think she had only one other patient she was looking after. With that said - my wife also had a couple of great nurses when she finally found her room. Carolyn - a nurse in the Neurological wing - was fabulous - friendly, knowledgeable and a joy. There were other good people as well...but the few bad ones weigh so heavily on the total experience that I feel compelled to write (and will let Emory know of course!)

rhinitis is definitely not a joke. For someone who's been suffering from this illness, it can pose a lot of inconvenience and can even take over your life if you let it. A friend recommended that I go to Northside Allergy to get it checked out, and thank God I did. I finally found a way to get rid of rhinitis.
