Ratings for Dr. Gerald Wittenberg
I wrote a Google review and I'll do it again here simply because my experience with Dr. Wittenberg and his staff was truly the best. The receptionists were very friendly and answered all of my mom's questions (she's very talkative, yet they were still patient with her). Probably the best care and service I had from a doctor and his staff. I was there on Wednesday, just a few days ago to get 3 wisdom teeth removed. After asking my friends about it, I was really scared for the operation, but the doctor's sense of humor, calm demeanour and friendliness loosened me up. While I was waiting for the doctor to prepare everything, an assistant accompanied me and we had casual conversation instead of just leaving me alone in that room being all scared...which is quite rare because usually you just get left alone in a room not knowing what to think. So I feel like even the assistants are trying their best to provide a pleasant experience for their patients and that it shows that they really care. What was shocking to me was that the operation was over in just half an hour! I woke up and was thinking "wow i'm done? this was way easier and painless than I thought". An assistant then guided me into another room to go over tips on how to take care of my teeth and the medicine that I needed to take. Then when I got home, woke up from my nap, the assistant called me to check up on me! It was such a nice gesture. She called to make sure that I ate and that I took my medicine...etc, and if I had any problems feel free to give them a call. I also got a follow up email right after that! It's now the third day since I got my 3 wisdom teeth removed and i feel no pain at all, just a tiny bit sore. I even worked out yesterday (which I wasn't supposed to do), but I felt fine. Today I'm eating boiled potatoes and carrots, oranges and dumplings already! No swelling in the face whatsoever!! So far, I've recommended quite a few friends already to Dr. Wittenberg because he is extremely professional and superb at what he does!
I was referred to Dr Wittenberg by a friend who had only glowing things to say about him and his team. I'm a huge wuss when it comes to any kind of dental work but Dr Wittenberg and his entire staff turned it into a beautiful experience. I had 3 wisdom teeth removed in under 45 minutes and am now recovering very well. A couple of assistants chatted with me before the surgery and they were both so sweet - it really helped calm my nerves. I can't even remember when I fell asleep, but all I remember was waking up a little dopey and hearing praises that I did a great job (if only my instructors in secondary school were as nice when that happened, ha). Dr Wittenberg himself is a gem! He's warm, caring, and very patient in answering all of my questions. He absolutely knows what he's doing. I really feel for people who had less than a stellar experience when extracting their wisdom teeth. It really does not have to be a horror story! Will definitely be recommending Dr Wittenberg and his team at both the Vancouver and Richmond locations.
Awesome experience! The staff was wonderful! The type of staff you would want to bring donuts and flowers post op lol. Honestly im very happy with the results and feel like a new man. My profile was a drastic change and i can see they used my preferred results pictures, as a guideline. Thanks again!!!
Beware! By telephone, prior to the appointment, my son was quoted a fee of about $6,000 for a rhinoplasty. However, at the consultation, the fee was increased to $14,000. Had my son known that the actual fee would be more than doubled, he would not have scheduled an appointment. THE OFFICE IS MOST UNPROFESSIONAL, BY HAVING QUOTED A FEE ON THE TELEPHONE, as my son would not have met with Dr. Wittenberg, had such a low ball fee not been quoted! We were surprised to find such a blatant "bait and switch" tactic in a professional setting!
I was amazed by this office. Really. I was like everyone else worried about the idea of any surgery, but I knew I wanted it. I had no jaw and tiny chin or at least that what I saw in the mirror. I heard great things about Dr Wittenberg and after talking on the phone to his super friendly staff, I went in and had a consultation. I really liked Dr Wittenberg and he was really mellow. He went over my feelings about what I wanted and explained lots about my face. I did the surgery a bit later when I could take time off and it was more than I expected. The first few days were all I needed and then a breeze. My new look was immediate and amazing that it could look so different and yet so natural like they had said. Great followup answered all questions. I am very happy and highly recommend Dr Wittenberg. Thanks
very happy i cane to dr wittenberg. tremendous skill and better yet he has a great abiluty to befriend you and create a comfortable environment to ask questions and his staff are so easy to talk to. highly recimmend him for any facial surgery
I've had several procedures carried out by Dr Wittenberg - sliding genioplasty, jawline augmentation and jaw angle implants and later, cheek implants. I flew from London (UK) to undergo surgery with him so that's testimony about what I think of him, his practice and staff. My experience had been nothing but pleasant, especially given my distance from his office and the procedures I've had. He is truly skilled in reshaping your facial contours. I really think he is one of the best cosmetic/maxillo facial surgeons around and it's just a pity he isn't based in the uk because I know there are loads of people I've spoken to who would certainly have had some work down by Dr Wittenberg, if he was here! Yes, travelling so far is a risk but I'm an actuary. My job is all about risk. Dr Wittenberg is simply the best, and my travel to Vancouver to see him certainly paid off. I'd advise everyone looking to sculpt their jaw and cheeks to consult with him. His office also gets back to you extremely quickly.
I had surgery several years ago but I am writing now because I was so impressed when I contacted Dr Wittenberg long afterwards and not only was the office accomodating to see me again, but they were so nice about scheduling me since I was out of town now. I still love my surgery result and now I wanted to keep up my appearance with some cosmetic treatments. I saw Dr Wittenberg and as he explained some options to me, I remembered how friendly and stress free my previous experience had been. Deja vu. Anyway, I had another great result this time and wanted people to know where to go for the best facial surgeon around.
I usually do not write reviews since you cannot make everyone happy so how do you figure things out. Anyway, had to do this one review since I am really happy with how my surgery turned out and how nice everyone was. First, meeting Doc Wittenberg was so easy. Great bedside manner as they say. Then the nurses were cool and spent lots of time with you especially just before I had the surgery. My orthodontist said I was complicated case but it sure didn't phase this surgeon. Went over everything and explained options and things. I did want to look good so talked about extra stuff but Dr Wittenberg made it really clear that I had the choice to do anything that was not for my bite. Kinda cool to plan it out. Surgery was as they said - no fun but not bad. Recovered so quick even they were surprised. Best of all, I look like I wanted. Nice. So consider me a fan. Sent a friend there too.
I had 2 wisdom teeth out a few months ago, after referral from my dentist. I was nervous as there are some very negative reviews on here. The procedure was fast and I was happy with the experience, and though everyone was friendly in consult and day of procedure, it did feel rushed at the end to get out the door.
