    Dr. Zakhary is very sweet, and it really shows that she truly cares about her patients. From the initial meeting to the last follow up appointment (2 years after the surgery), she demonstrates an exceedingly high degree of professionalism and care. I would recommend her services to anyone!

    Dr. Zakhary was the most amazing doctor. Anytime I have been to her office, I have felt extremely comfortable. More than that, she greets me with a hug and makes me feel like she's really excited to see me and the results. On the day of the surgery itself, she was so nurturing and helped relax me going into the anesthesia process. When I was picked up later that afternoon, my boyfriend mentioned how kind and sweet she was. It really made the whole process an amazing experience.

    Dr Kristina Zackary
    Was someone that made you feel comfortable in asking any question never rushed you or made you wait forever to see her has a really good memory and helped me understand how everything was going to workout

    I selected Dr. Kristina Zakhary to perform the procedure because she specializes in facial plastic surgery. I feel very comfortable with her skill level as a doctor and surgeon working on a challenging nose (mine), as well as with her personable manner. She is great to talk with, she listens, and explains the procedure, risks, and outcomes in detail. She welcomes any questions or concerns you may have.

    Her staff are sensitive and very courteous. You can expect to receive reminder messages so that appointments are confirmed and re-confirmed. Kelsey is one of her patient care coordinators and is always very friendly and supportive. All of the surgical staff at the hospital were amazing, Erin, Kelsey, and Juby, and the anaesthesiologist (cannot remember his name!)

    From my experience, Dr. Zakhary has a thriving and well-managed practice. I would strongly recommend her to others looking to have rhinoplasty surgery.

    She is very professional and business like. The surgeons team was great as well.

    Smart, friendly, extremely skilled, and makes herself available to you at all times. One complaint is that the appointments didn't always feel thorough and they were a little too fast paced at times.

    Dr. Zakhary did my rhinoplasty recently. She did a terrific job. I did a lot of research before picking her, and I'm glad with my choice. She's an exceptional surgeon with a great aesthetic sense. I think it's a combination of her extra years of specialization as a facial surgeon (the only one in town I believe) and being a woman. I saw a review that said negative things about her. That's not at all warranted or fair. She's a great surgeon. I would go to her before anyone else in town.

    She did a great job from start to finish. I had many questions about the rhinoplasty surgery. She walked through them patiently with me. She explained what we could and could not do for a natural but beautiful outcome. And she was right. No one has every guessed I've had rhinoplasty, but I can easily see the difference and feel more confident because of it. I'm really happy with the outcome.

    Dr Zakhary , a skilled surgeon, is the best. It took me a while to make the commitment and there was no pressure from her to proceed. She respects that it is a commitment mentally, physically and financially. The pre-op and post-op instructions were very informative and thorough. Follow up after surgery is continual and she is always avaiable by telephone or email. The team she works with are great as the office staff are pleasant, courteous and efficient. You feel like "family". Riverview Clinic was an excellent experience as well. I have no hesitation to recommend Dr Zakhary to anyone considering this surgery.

    WORST mistake I have ever made was going to Dr. Zakhary for rhinoplasty. She has left me with a crooked and deformed nose. Please do LOTS of research before choosing a doctor. There are lots of good ones out there.

    I am so happy with the results.

    My experience with this doctor was horrifying. I now have a crooked nose and a lifetime of filler to keep it looking normal.

    Dr. Zahkary is exceptional. Phenomenal. She is simply the best in my opinion. I spent years researching physicians for my operation. I ended up coming across Dr. Zahkary online and I really liked the fact that she was also a woman, so she would have realistic expectations for what the outcome of my face should be. The reviews I found were mostly positive, with the exception of a few negative ones however once I read them, I could tell they were written with unrealistic expectations. This made me feel more comfortable and I decided to book a consultation which only took a week to book. When I walked into her office for the consultation, I felt a little impatient because it took 2 hours to see her since she was very busy. This was a good opportunity though, as I got a chance to watch patients walk in and out of her office and see how their results were! When I was politely taken into a room to meet her, I instantly fell in love with her personality and smile. She is very genuine, sweet and modest. She listened to everything I had to say and was not afraid to let me know if the image I had was unrealistic or would not work for my face. We ended up booking the surgery 3 months out which was to allow time incase I wanted to change my mind or had second thoughts. Throughout these 3 months she was great at answering all my questions and keeping me informed on the next step in the process. I never felt lost or left hanging, it was easy to talk to her. My personal situation required 1.5 years of follow-ups post surgery, where she was very happy to see me on a monthly basis to answer my questions and to monitor my progress. She never made me feel like I was asking too much and would do a great job of calming down my uncertainties. It is a long, tough journey both physically and mentally. There are going to be days where you feel like 'wow ok this looks great I think I see the end result coming', and there are going to be days where you feel 'oh my goodness what is happening to my face why is it leaning this way?!' this is completely NORMAL, it is your body trying to heal itself and it takes at least a year to see solidified results! I had a lot of anxiety for some months and she would do an amazing job of explaining why this was happening and resting my doubts. It has now been a total of 1.5 years after the surgery and I cannot express how happy I am with the way everything went. If I had to do it all over again I would choose her no questions asked!!! I believe honest reviews are the best reviews, and I assure you it has been the longest struggle of my life getting to this point, where I feel the most confident and happy I have ever been thanks to her help.

    Thank you Dr. Zahkary!!!

    Dr. Zachary is a very down to earth, honest open communicator. What she said she could do for me is pretty much exact with what I experienced. I know from an article in the paper here that she has had at least one cosmetic procedure. This means to me that she speaks from experience, but she also looks very natural and not "Barbie doll". There are other clinic staff that very nearly turned me off the experience as they look too done, with the plastic overdone puffy lipped look that for some reason seems popular now. This is not what I was sold or given, thank heavens!

    Dr. Zakhary and her staff are wonderful. They were very interactive from before I had my consultation all the way coming up to, through and after my procedure. Her office and assistants were always happy to answer any questions I had and were very diligent in keeping touch via phone and email. Following surgery Dr. Zakhary gave me her personal cell phone number and told me not to hesitate to call if I had ANY questions. She called me around 8:00pm the night of my surgery which was about 5 hours after (I was awake from the anesthetic around 3:00pm) to check up on me. Post ops have been regular.

    Happy Rhinoplasty Grl

    Dr. Zakhary was very kind and professional throughout the whole experience, from the first consultation, to the surgery, to the follow up appointments. I did a lot of research and found out that she is the only woman in Calgary who actually specializes in nose and rhinoplasty surgery and she doesn't do all sorts of other surgeries like tummy tucks and breast jobs. She was very patient and answered all my questions, and when I was concerned about something, she would personally call me and see me when I needed. I asked a lot of questions before surgery, so that I thought I was prepared for everything, but believe me, there are a lot of curve balls after plastic surgery, and you need to have a doctor who actually cares about you and who will want to help you if something doesn't go right. Dr. Zakhary is totally that kind of surgeon. I felt that she wanted me to have a good result and be happy with my result, and really made an effort, even after my operation was over. I am very comfortable to recommend her to people like me who want a natural looking rhinoplasty result.

    I expected more professionalism, honesty and integrity from a person who is so educated. I have seen her roll her eyes and make faces when she thought she could not be seen. I have had many treatments since with other doctors and never have been attacked with the needle as with Dr. Zakhary. My results with her were mediocre at best. There are much more exceptional surgeons, do your research.

    Greek Nose Girl

    Found her online... So glad I did! I couldn't have had a more caring and professional experience.
    I had a breast augmentation done 9 years ago and has researched the right doctor for 2 years and this was not different. I chose Dr. Zakhary because I didn't want a breast implant surgeon who did 25 nose jobs a year doing my face!! Dr. Z is double board certified, and expert in facial plastic surgery and does approaching 20+ a month. Due to her extensive training and experience in doing so many I felt comfortable that she could handle my complex nose and desired finally result being able to handle complications along the way.

    I was extremely nervous going into the actual surgery and Dr. Z actually held my hand and talked me through the anesthesia process til I fell asleep. I also loved how she put up my desired after shots (simulations) in the surgical suite as a guide and made me feel very confident that we were working towards the same desired results.

    I love the way I always get a big smile and hug from Dr. Zahkary and I never feel as though I'm just a patient. It's personal, warm and I like that. The ONLY downside I ever experienced was that one time the wait period was a bit long for the in office...however, lol, i'm not surprised due to the popularity and was comfortable in one of the treatment rooms with some sparkling water. I also liked that they let my best friend accompany me for getting the tape/cast off.

    I would highly recommend Kristina as a surgeon and as a great person as well.
    I have some very specific comments about the rhinoplasty experience and preparation that I believe will be useful to all potential patients and am happy to answer any questions you may have.
    I should also add that she straightened my nose and worked some sort of magic inside because I don't snore anymore either! I feel like I got it all and more : )
    Best wishes to all and much thanks to Dr. Zakhary : )
