      Never in my life have I been talked down to by a doctor. After going through a double mastectomy with reconstruction for cancer along with Chemo. I went to see the doctor for a revision. I was told I need to worry more about my weight and less about my breast. I was told by the doctor himself that I would be dead in 10 years if I don't fix my weight and that he would never put me under with my BMI. I was appalled by his statement. It's not like I'm 600 pounds.

      Dr. Bonawitz is very professional, skilled, and caring. He has great bedside manner and lacks the God complex so many surgeons have. I highly recommend him if you need any type of plastic surgery.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
