Ratings for Dr. David Wiesenfeld
Dr Wiesenfeld performed an osteotomy and genioplasty on me. The surgery didn’t heal well and I required corrective surgery for chin asymmetry. I still have an excessively long face now and am a woman. My nerves are also damaged and I have permanent reduced sensation in my lower jaw. I also now have TMJ. Despite this he refused to admit the surgery wasn’t a success and was quite obstinate and righteous in the way he spoke to me. I am a health professional myself and would not recommend him.
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.
