Dr. Wideroff did an umbilical hernia repair for me 11 days ago. I am a podiatrist and practiced in the same community with Dr. Wideroff for 25 years. His reputation has always been stellar among the medical community here, so when I needed this surgery, I asked as few of my doctor friends that everyone agreed that he was a great choice to do this procedure. The experience that I had with him and his office was as good as it gets.
I felt Dr. Wideroff was attentive, caring and knowledgeable. Very pleased with his care.

He was thorough, explaining everything before my two surgeries. He talked about all the possible scenarios and outcomes. He answered all my questions and concerns and never made me feel that he needed to rush out to the next patient. He also stopped by pre-op before both surgeries to say hello, for last minute questions and to reiterate what was going to happen. He is kind, compassionate and has a great sense of humor: all traits you don't necessarily find in a surgeon. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Wideroff & staff were superb from the pre-op visit, to the surgery, & post surgery follow up. I could not have asked for a better surgery & end result. Dr. Wideroff was extremely thorough, informative, and present throughout the entire process...he explained everything clearly & entertained any questions or concerns I had. Dr. Wideroff came very highly recommended to me, and I would highly recommend him & his staff as well!

From the outset he was caring, attentive and reassuring. I had extensive gall bladder surgery and during my 4 day hospital stay he was there every day to check on my condition. The follow up visit was informative and I was told that his door is always open for me!

Dr. Wideroff came highly recommended by all of my physicians. I needed to have a Ventral Incisional Hernia Operation. After meeting with Dr. Wideroff, I was totally convinced that he was the one I wanted to operate on me. My operation was a week ago and I can say that I made the right choice. He is the most caring, knowledgeable, skillful surgeon I have ever met. I would highly recommend him. He is the best.

I just had surgery a week ago today for a total thyroidectomy. Considering the surgery involved, I feel great. I went to see him yesterday for my post-op and he removed the tape covering the scar and it looks great. I can see that it will be barely noticeable once healed. This is the second surgery that I have had with Dr. Wideroff in the last 7 years and I can honestly say that his bedside manner and knowledge is what sets him apart from other doctors. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Wideroff is a most compassionate, caring, and understanding doctor that I've met since moving to south Florida. He explained everything, taking his time, and set my mind at ease completely. I highly recommend him!

I had a total thyroid removal. It should have been removed several years ago, but was afraid. My thyroid grew, was large, finally went back to have Dr Wideroff remove it. Dr Wideroff told me not to worry, still did. Delray Medical, nurses, anesthesia, all told me that for thyroid surgery, Dr Wideroff is the best. Thankful the results were benign. After the surgery, I had a short recovery to stabilize levels. My thyroid medication is now the same as it was Before removal!

I had emergency appendectomy 10 days ago. Dr. Wideroff was recommended by my internist and before my procedure every RN at Boca regional Hospital told me I had the best surgeon. They were right. he is compassionate, understanding and explains in detail what his plan is. 10 days later I am golfing, his follow up is amazing and I can't go anywhere without bringing up his name and other doctors and patients extolling his virtues and capabilities. I would on use Dr Wideroff for his specialty!

On Jan 18th 2016 wind up in the ER at Boca Raton Regional Hospital with a diverticulitis infection. Tuesday morning Dr. Wideroff was at my bed side explaining the surgical procedures and possible scenarios for outcome. I had great confidence in surgeon Wideroff as 2 years ago he performed an umbilical hernia operation on me with great success. The colon resection surgery on 1/19 went very well - they worked very hard - to avoid colostomy bag. I was out of the hospital by 2/26/16. Great surgeon!
