Dr. Wideroff is by far the most caring, knowledgable Dr I have ever seen. The world would be a better place if there were more doctors like him. He is so confident and truly takes his time to explain the surgery that it made me feel very comfortable. I was reluctant to do a full thyroidectomy but he convinced me it would be painless and a quick recovery. It was. I feel better than I ever have and i even ran 3 miles 10 days after my surgery. Best surgeon out there!

I just had my thyroid removed by Dr. Wideroff. From the first time meeting Dr. Wideroff he was so calm and reassuring. Sat down and explained everything. He really put my mind at ease. After the surgery appointment he was just as wonderful. Never rushed and answered all my questions.

I recently had emergency gallbladder surgery. Dr. Wideroff was my surgeon, the first choice of my primary care physician. We first met several hours before my surgery. Dr. Wideroff clearly explained the procedure I would shortly undergo. He reviewed step-by-step what would take place. He carefully explained the risks involved and the most likely outcome. His manner and demeanor, relaxed me and filled me with confidence. I felt secure in his hands. Highly recommended!

Amazing dr. Explains and is very knowledgeable best in Florida

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.
in Delray Beach, FL |
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!

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!
