Ask Dr. Joe

Patient’s questions are a great part of the Internet, making it possible to get informal information about a condition or procedure. Dr. Niamtu makes every attempt to personally answer every question.

Dr. Niamtu is certified to practice cosmetic facial surgery and is licensed in the State of Virginia. Any discussion of health care or surgical conditions is considered an informal discussion and does not create a surgeon-patient relationship. A diagnosis and treatment plan can only be established after a formal patient consult is conducted. Any discussion is provided as a courtesy by Dr. Niamtu.

Video “consults” can also be scheduled.  We prefer the Zoom Video platform which is free and you can download the app for computer and phone at
