I highly recommend Dr. Gewirtz. I had a minor procedure done to remove a mole on my face and he made the whole process very easy and painless. It is now 4 months post-procedure and you'd never know I ever had a mole! No scarring/discoloration at all. I really enjoyed my experience with Dr. Gewirtz's office - everyone was very pleasant and courteous.

Dr. Gewirtz removed a scary looking mole for me - I was very afraid since I have family history of skin cancer and he was excellent. Almost no scar. I would wholeheartedly recommend to friends and family.

He was supposed to fix my deviated septum. Now I have a crooked nose and huge hole in my septum. I hate this guy. Avoid him.

He is an amazing surgeon. i was nervous to have cosmetic surgery, but I knew to be happy I needed it, my friends who were kind even mentioned it to me. When I saw the doctor he never pushed me, kindly told me my options, there was no pressure like with other plastic surgeons I saw. Well, I'm writing this because I am so amazingly happy I did it, and so thankful to him for having the hands to have changed me, ( while making me look so much better but totally natural)

Dr. H. Gewirtz is the best plastic surgeon. I had surgery that could have left large noticeable scars on my face, but everything went perfectly and I look much better without any scars. I would recommend him to everyone.

i am so very happy that i had Dr. Gewirtz removed a disfiguring large congenital tumor on my lip which I had never done before becasue I was told I would have a large scar. Dr. Gewirtz was very kind and understanding. He removed it, put a little flap, and I have NO scar. It looks like I never had a problem at all. ! I am really really happy and thankful to him.
