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'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.
Super happy with my surgery. I had both upper and lower jaw surgery and a chin surgery together and I am really pleased with the result. My bite is great and I feel good about how I look now. Dr Wittenberg is very easy to talk to and answers all your questions and his staff are also great and spend lots of time with you preparing you for the surgery time. He is super artistic in the way he looks at you and has done thousands of surgeries apparently and is the guy to go to for facial surgery. Highly recommend him.
Had my consultation, didn't like how the staff didn't get back to me on time, or at all so far, regarding the procedures I wanted. Also they don't answer any of my questions. I wouldn't expect them to be able to get back to me if something went wrong after prcedure either. Doctor was okay didn't really try to get to know what I wanted, didn't give me the chance to talk much. Definitely just from consultation, would not recomend dr witteburg.
I recently had four impacted wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Wittenberg. The doctor and his staff were so kind and helpful. Even though I was very nervous for the procedure, Dr. Wittenberg and his staff made me feel comfortable at the consultation and while putting me under for the extraction. It went very well and I had a short recovery time with very little swelling or bruising.
I just recently had a sliding genioplasty with Dr. Wittenberg. I am extremely pleased with the way I have been treated from start to finish. He always made me feel comfortable during my consultations and was very upfront about my expectations from the surgery and what he could achieve. His staff has been so helpful and friendly, after waking up from my surgery I had a small panic attack and his staff stayed with me and kept me calm the entire time. Dr. Wittenberg called me several times post operation to make sure I was doing alright and healing quickly! My swelling subsided quickly and I am extremely happy with my results.
