I have never been seen a doctor that was so ignorate. I went to this toolbag seeking information on a breast reduction. He asked me two questions "what size I am? What size I see myself?" After I answered he went on for 30 minutes about how my bmi is too high and he doesn't touch patients over 35 bmi. Told me to get a second opinion and a consult with the bariatrics. I left in tears so embarrassed. Maybe he should have his appointments screened better. I will NEVER recommend this so called dr.

My bilateral diep flap was done in Phila at HUP where I had a mediocre to poor result. Plus, the surgeons there lied to me several times.I went to Dr. Bonawitz in Cooper Univ. Hospital for 2 revisions. The fat grafting didn't work 100%, but there is an improvement. I have never met such a caring, physician who spends as much time as is needed and NEVER has one foot out the door. He is truly exceptional.

Dr. Bonawitz is fantastic. He did a Diep flap reconstruction of my breast at the time of my mastectomy. I had several fantastic appointments prior to the surgery with him to completely understand this complex procedure and then spent quite a bit of time with him post surgery. He has been there for me throughout my recovery process. His medical skills are superb – my new press saw fantastic – and he is also an extremely caring and compassionate dr!

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.
