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 have wanted to fix my small jaw and chin since I was a kid. My parents did not want to have jaw surgery when I had braces and my teeth are fine but I still had a small chin and I tried stuff to stick out my chin when I would take pictures but I hated the pictures. I spent lots of time researching and found Dr Wittenberg in Vancouver. His pictures looked real and natural to me and many types of chins too. I talked to his office on the phone and found out he saw people from out of town and the lady on the phone was really helpful. After a few conversations I sent my pictures like they asked and I went to Dr Wittenberg for the visit and surgery together. When I met him i knew it was good decision. He was friendly and told me all about my jaw and said he had seem many of this happen when jaw surgery was not done. He said that building out the jaw from the front chin to the back of the jaw would make it look like the jaw was more like I wanted. I had already decided. The nurses explained what I needed to do after surgery even though they told me before. I stayed there for a few days. The surgery was no pain and some tight jaw but after a few days I felt ok. I really brushed and did what they said and I could tell right away how good it looked. I was really impressed. I did not expect to look that good but he did great work. It was a while to see the look get even better and now I feel good in pictures and even want pictures of me. I look so good. Even my parents are now happy and say that I did the right thing. Dr Wittenberg is an artist and a great surgeon.

Dr. Wittenberg is an absolutely BRILLIANT surgeon. My face was bothering me with excessive chin and neck fat and doggy, drooping jowls which didn’t go away with diet and exercise. I am SO glad I went to see Dr. W about it, instead of just feeling sad and self-conscious, and wasting money on all sorts of gimmicky products and spa procedures that don’t work. With a quick and painless operation, he basically made me look like my ‘old self’ again, I mean, ten years younger! I wholeheartedly recommend a visit with him if there is something about your face/jaw/chin/teeth/neck that’s bothering you. It’s one of the best decisions I ever made. I chose him because I saw his ‘before and after’ photos on the internet and I can tell you those pictures do not lie: I look (and feel!) so much better after! In addition, he has a team of assistants who are kind, nonjudgmental, patient with questions, and knowledgeable. And Dr. W is very nice too! The whole experience was actually pleasant, and the results outstanding.

I visited Vancouver after my friend recommended Dr Wittenberg. I needed someone to fix my flat cheeks and tiny chin. What a wonderful group of people in that office. Very professional and caring. Dr Wittenberg listened to me and he was good at telling me all my choices and I liked that very much since cost was an issue. I did the chin surgery and was really happy about the result and how I was treated. Everything they said came true and after a few months the look was even better like they said. I took a couple of days off but was back at it pretty quick. Dr Wittenberg also blended my chin into the jawline with materials and it looks great. So much better than the pictures on the internet of other surgeons. He's great.

I had a very positive experience with this office. I had a eyebag surgery and a neckline surgery and am very happy with my results. The experience was very professional and the office makes you feel wonderful every time you see them. For me the reason I went was to fix my aging face but I found out that no matter why you go to Dr Wittenberg you have a good feeling. I talked to people in the reception room on occasion and everyone was very impressed with Dr Wittenberg and they had different surgeries too. I feel good about my natural look and feel good looking in the mirror. Now if only the rest of my body was as good!

I am not really vain, but I wanted a better masculine jawline like the models in magazines. I have an ok jaw but I never was happy with my look. I researched a lot and found that Dr Wittenberg is quite the artist in jawline buildups and I liked his before and afters. My consultation went well and he seemed to really understand what I was after. I had a few visits with him and he was nice every time about all my questions. The nurses were all nice too. He did a chin surgery and jawline augmentation at his office operating room and it seemed to go really well. The swelling near the ear area was predicted and it took some time to feel like the jawline would work out like I wanted, but it did. You have to be patient but they kept reassuring me and of course they knew. Now I really feel good about my face and kinda ego about my great jawline. Dr Wittenberg was great and really modest about what he does. He changes lives and gives you confidence and what more can I say. Great surgeon who really is talented.

I was tired of my saggy skin on my neck and the terrible bags under my eyes even though I was healthy and in good weight. I went to Dr Wittenberg to see what could be done and I was really pleased with the friendly office and Dr Wittenberg who listened to me and only focused on what I asked about so I felt really comfortable. He likes you to know about your face and he explains the surgery and I was really taken by his gentle manner and smile. After I decided to have the surgery the office was great in telling me what to expect. Honestly, I thought the entire surgery was a breeze. I was tired for a while but when I saw my face the second day I was so thrilled that a short time to get normal was nothing to me. I went to them for checkups and I really appreciated that because you don't know what to expect but they were great. I now look like I wanted to look (maybe better). I highly recommend Dr Wittenberg and his amazing staff.

I really wanted a chin and good jawline and did my research. I saw a surgeon who recommended an implant but I read all about the problems with chin implants and wanted a genioplasty. Dr Wittenberg has amazing results and I travelled to see him after talking to his office and figuring out schedules and timing. When I met him I was immediately at ease since he is very calm and friendly and easy to talk to. He went over my face structure and gave me some options since I had had orthodontics before and had teeth removed. The braces treatment changed my face and he showed me how and then recommended what to do . I decided to just do a genioplasty and fix my profile. The staff was great in preparing me and the surgery went super well. I had no pain and the swelling went away quick. My family thinks I look amazing and I do too. I feel so good about how I look and really thank Dr Wittenberg for his expert work. He is so talented and he made me so comfortable.

First thing to say is that I was very impressed with Dr Wittenberg and his staff. They were always friendly and supportive even from the get go. I was definitely nervous deciding to see someone about how I looked and afraid a bit about what surgery involved. But Dr Gerald and his lovely ladies were so nice and it made my experience so easy. I was aging faster than I felt and I wanted an assessment of what could be done and how much it would cost. I became so comfortable with this office that I would have done it all but Dr Wittenberg wanted me to focus on the things that really bothered me and never pushed me to do anything. Eventually I had a face and neck surgery with some other procedures I wanted to do at the same time. The surgery was a breeze really and I felt pretty good pretty quickly. Of course it does take time to feel normal again and go out into the world without thinking about it. Overall no pain and a feeling of tightness and occasional aches which went away. The nurses were great and literally held me hand some times and took time with me explaining things. I love my look and it has been enough time that I can really appreciate what Dr Wittenberg has done for me and how natural I look . I don't care what people say but they keep saying how good I look for my age and that feels pretty nice.
