Ratings for Dr. David Wiesenfeld
after reading the same comment on what I feel happened to me, on the right my jaw surgery was not done correctly, mind you this was year ago, looking at over 15 years, I feel a pulling on the right corner mouth, ive had orthodontic work twice, I feel after all these years I need to chase things up again
David is an outstanding surgeon. I had a rare head and neck cancer which required major surgery in 2000. Since then I have probably had at least 5 other surgeries with David to reconstruct my jaw, mouth and teeth over the last 15 years. I credit Peter MacCallum hospital, the Oral and Maxillfacial team at Royal Melborne and Mr David Wiesenfeld for surviving. I could not speak higher.
I found Mr Wiesenfeld to be extremely informative and demonstrated a great deal of care towards my child, with a high attention to detail, prompt communication and a briliant level of skill. I would recommend him to any parent heading down the "jaw surgery" track with their child.
The staff could learn to smile, but maybe they are miserable working for this man. My child and I waited for 50 minutes for an early morning appointment - for an initial consultation which cost me hundreds of dollars. His demeanor was patronising and rude; his advice was condescending and the quoted price for possibly engaging further long-term patronising behaviour from him was so over-the-top I hardly contained my amusement when he scribbled it on a piece of scrap paper. We went elsewhere and were very happy to never see him again.
David Wiesenfeld performed inaccurate work on both my upper jaw and chin giving my face a crooked appearance. He doggedly refused to address any of my concerns and I had a world of difficulty finding another surgeon to (partially) improve the results of his surgery. I've had TMJ since surgery and my mouth and lips still don't function quite normally. Maybe he's improved since then, but I'd look elsewhere if I were you, in spite of his 'stellar' reputation.
