Dr. Pensler is a tribute to the medical community. My father was an Ophthalmologist and my grandfather Otorhinolaryngology so I have grown up in the midst of medicine. I had gynecomastia surgery in 2002 and the results were priceless and im thankful 18 years later.. From the age of 13 I developed lumps in my chest. I had a consultation with Dr. Pensler and he gave me a computer generated result post op. The fact is,post op results exceeded my expectations! Dr. Pensler has an excellent bedside manner, professional and the surgery has alleviated acute pain that I endured for decades. His staff was equally qualified. Dr. Pensler is an excellent physician in every facet of medicine. Thanks Dr. Pensler. Highly recommended!

I saw Dr. Pensler for a bilateral gynecomastia operation, and I couldn’t be any happier about my entire experience with him and his staff! When I met with him for my consultation, he was extremely easy to talk to, and he was very informative and helpful with explaining the operation. He even showed me a variety of before and after picture so I would have a reasonable idea of what to expect after surgery - that’s when I really knew I wanted Dr. Pensler to do my surgery. The before and after pictu

!!Dr Jay Pensler is a life changer !!!! If you want a sergeant who is honest and truly cares about making you happy I? strongly recommended going to Dr Jay Pensler. From the start he was caring and genuine. I am 10 days out of surgery and I? couldn’t stop smiling when I? got out of the shower this morning. Like a lot of men I struggled with Gynecomastia. For years I? felt embarrassed and self-conscious about going to the beach/Pool or what clothes I? should wear. Dr Pensler goal isn’t to on

Went back on September 29, 2015 for a second time to change a deflated breast implant. I had new silicon implants put it. The doctor himself was wonderful and so was the office staff. The nurse anesthesiologist however was rude in a way that she felt like she could talk and give advice about everything and anything. She bluntly told me to lose 30lb even though Im 5'4 and weight 145-not slim but I hardly think that qualifies me as obese.
