Five years ago, I had a plastic surgery by Dr. Dennis Bang. His surgery caused paralysis on the right side of my face and severely disfigured me in other significant ways as well as permanently causing physical impairment. Dr. Bang went on to severely injure others and eventually lost a malpractice suit, revised records or witheld them, and caused irrevocable injury to others besides me. He eventually went "bust" in L.A. and had to move, even though for 5 years he has continued to post a false Beverly Hills address.

As a former patient of Dr. Robert Kotler's who had found him congenial and trustworthy, and because he had seen me just before and after the botched plastic surgery, I went to Dr. Kotler, seeking clarity and advice.
Dr. Kotler severely disappointed me. In fact, I felt taken advantage of and betrayed. #1. His fee schedule states that " A consultation with a report and photographs," costs $1,000. A "Record Review" quotes another $1,000 fee.

Dr. Kotler took no photographs and wrote a 7 sentence general analysis, claiming, "I was dissatisfied." He added, "There has been improvement to the malar festoons," an absolutely untrue statement as my malar festoons now extended in wings beyond my face. He concluded that, "She traded one deformity for several others."

I contacted Dr. Kotler and advised him that I was dissatisfied with this 7 sentence report for $2,000 which did not even mention major facts that my 5th and 7th nerves had been severed and my right eye did not blink. He subsequently wrote a revised letter that was equally non-specific as to my injuries.

Besides the fact that a 7 sentence letter with no photographs and no diagnosis is pricey at $2,000, I believe Dr. Kotler abandoned me, a long-time patient he had seen only a few days prior to Dr. Bang's botched surgery and just following his surgery. This not only left me in the dark for a significant period as to the extent of my injuries, it also enabled Dr. Bang to continue practicing and permanently injure others.

This closing of ranks among doctors in the same city is well-known.
I had expected more of Dr. Kotler, a man who spends time on charities and on burnishing his image. In addition, like others who have posted anything negative about Dr. Kotler, I received an angry threatening letter from Dr. Kotler claiming he would take legal action against me.
Of course, it was just a threat that he would "Win." Everything I've posted is the truth and I have back-up to prove it. Evidently, I am not alone and this is a doctor who cares about his reputation above all, even his own patients.

Dr. Kotler did an extended neck lift and upper eye-lid lift on me 3 years ago. I was 48 at the time. The results have been nothing other than amazing. The doctor was extremely patient as I went through my decision-making process to undergo plastic for the first time. Dr. Kotler is a very kind and special man and his staff reflects his energy. He is a true talent and the kind of doctor that is rare these days, especially in Beverly Hills. He's very old school. He instilled confidence and I was not overly anxious prior to surgery and I am a worrier. I knew I was in good hands, was prepared emotionally and I was excited to see if Kotler's photo imaging would actually be the end result. I have to say, the two procedures have made a HUGE difference for me. Even better then the imaging! I love my eyes and can wear eye shadow again. My profile is lovely and I look and feel fantastic! Dr. Kotler is the best.
