I never wrote a review before but felt I had too. While I truly feel Dr Pillowsdorf is an excellent Dr. his office staff is worse than unreliable. I would never use him as I never received return phone calls, always referred to another person person, totally uncaring for the patient. If I had this much trouble trying to get surgery I could only imagine what works happen if I had a problem post surgery. When I cancelled the surgery, the office manager called me as to ask why. When she said her name, I realized she was the one who never returned my calls. The procedure was for a precancerous surgery which I was going to self pay. Stay away from this office!

Horrible doctor. I woke up from surgery all bloody and one breast much larger than the other. Surgery had to be done over a few weeks later. Never turned out the way it was supposed to. He is totally incompetent

This office fully exceeded my expectations. Professionalism from start to finish. State of the art, immaculate surgical center with assistants who went above and beyond in every way. My surgical procedure was minor (cyst removal), but I was made to feel as though I was the most important patient of the day. I actually found myself enjoying the surgery, if that makes any sense. And as an added bonus, the surgery was performed so well that I have no viewable scarring. I highly recommend this office!

I absolutely love him. He did a fantastic and perfect job on my breast augmentation. He is a perfectionist with his work. He is very funny and makes you feel very comfortable.

This man should not be practicing medicine. He has no compassion. No skill. If you have absolutely no complications you may be ok. Get another opinion

Dr Pillersdorf has proven to me that he has the technical skills, the heart and compassion to be considered amongst the best Plastic Surgeons in Florida. He did an excellent job with my Panniculectomy. While doing this procedure, he found a hernia and fixed that as well. No infection, 35" of incision, and all neat and clean. My outlook is terrific. He was caring and explained everything. I very highly recommend Dr Pillersdorf for ANY Plastic Surgery.

I had breast cancer and had a mastectomy and breast reconstruction from another surgeon and that surgeon really messed me up... Thank god for Dr. Pillerdorf he was able to fix my botched up reconstruction. I so much would like to put the name down of the Dr. that messed me up, but I won't
