Dear Dr Wigoda,

Thank you for the amazing job you did with our “reconstruction”. You fixed a horrible problem and made us feel good about ourselves again. You and your staff were wonderful through the whole ordeal. Thank you again, it is much appreciated.

Felix and Carlos

Dear Doctor Wigoda,

I would first like to thank you for all that you have done. In October 2009, We met as strangers in the ER of broward general’s trauma unit where I was rushed in as a trauma patient from a hospital that couldn’t handle my case. I was adamant about receiving the best surgeon at the hospital and was told that you would be coming on call in a few hours. The entire staff at Broward General held you in such high regard, and now I know why. I arrived with a fractured cheek, a lacerated eyelid that had been torn from my face, a nose that was broken and mangled, and severe road rash covering my arms and face. I was ejected from my vehicle and dragged down I-595 approximately 30 yards. I was a complete mess. I am a commercial pilot and my eyes are everything. You not only repaired my face and lacerations, but restored all normal function as well. Despite my numerous questions and the early hour you were called in, you had a huge smile on your face and turned my personal tragedy, into a triumph of surgical proffesionalism. In the days and months that followed, I regained the face that I recognized from before the accident, and I am still soaring through the sky thanks to you. My scarring is minimal, despite what the first initial hospital had predicted. I am so blessed and grateful that you were my surgeon. In the years that have followed, you have taking care of many of the people I care the most about in my life. Whether it has been a breast augmentation , face lift, eye lid rejuvenation, or a nose job, you have surpassed everyone’s expectations and made a huge difference in their lives. Now, two years after meeting you, I have come to you again. This time for elective plastic surgery. I had a large mass in my chest (gynecomastia) and it was distorting my physique, very uncomfortable and awkward . After changing my diet, extensive excersie, and trying everything possible, I knew you could fix me up.

I came in to see you, and like you had done two years ago in the Hospital, you greeted me with a big smile. You were full of options and understanding. You navigated around my demanding work schedule, and administered the best treatment available. I left my surgery with immediate satisfaction! I was in minimal pain, and up and about in record time. I am now looking forward to returning to the gym, beach and getting back to being myself again. You are more than a physician, I think of you as my friend. You are honest, kind, professional, and the example of what a physician should be. Thank you for always being there, and doing everything with so much class. You are the best in the business!

Sincerely,

Darren Wehby

The Doctor with the Special Touch:

I have never been able to express my gratitude for what you did for me.  You literally saved my life.  I am a firm believer that God puts special people in your life for a reason and even though it has been a year later, I will never forget what you mean to me and what you did for me.  You didn’t have to take my medical complications on.  You were not the one that “messed” me up.  My family and I were at a loss, I did not know how much more pain I would be able to take and who would be able to reconstruct me.  All I wanted to do is feel “normal” again.

I remember the first visit.  You were highly recommended and I thought to myself, how a doctor with high recommendations could take on such a nightmare!  I entered your office doors not only in severe pain, but with the mindset that you would not take me on as a patient.  For that first time in a long time, I saw HOPE and it was in your eyes.  At that time I realized that I was 25 and my life wasn’t over.

Throughout 8 months of treatment plus additional surgery, you made me see the light at the light at the end of the tunnel.  I went from wanting to end my life to wanting to live.  There was no psychiatrist or lawyer that could have seen what I was going through.  However, you made me feel so comfortable that I was able to open up to you more than anyone else.  I felt like I was visiting long time friends every time I walked into your office.

I am writing you this letter with tears in my eyes.  Dr. Wigoda, there are no words to describe how grateful I am for you.  You are not just and amazing surgeon, but an amazing person as well.

With Love,

J.N.

Dr. Wigoda,

Thank you for everything you did for me.  You are truly the “miracle Doctor” words cannot express how grateful I am to you and your staff.  Thank you for making me feel like a person and not just a number!!

J.N.

Dr. Wigoda, Lucy & Staff,

It has been six months since my surgery and I could not be happier with the results.  Dr. Wigoda, you are truly an artist!
I wanted to say thank you for being so patient with me prior to the surgery, with all my questions! I believe you said I hold a new record.
Post Surgery I look back and feel silly for being so nervous.  Everyone made me feel so comfortable the day of my surgery and the recovery has gone very smoothly.
I got exactly what I wanted out of this and would recommend you and your staff to anyone.  You are all top notch.  I look forward to visiting the office in December when I am back in town.

Thank you for everything,

E.W.

Dear Dr. Wigoda, Lucy and Rocky

Than you for taking care of me so well and helping me to regain my youth!! You always do such excellent work!!
Very truly yours,

C.D.

Dr. Wigoda

Paul, it was March 4, 2009 that we first met at the operating room at Broward General Hospital.  I wish it could have been under different circumstances.  Since I had an accident involving a table saw that removed the tips of two fingers and severely injured another on my left hand, it seemed funny that we both still had a sense of humor under this situation.  Remember, I quipped that “my days as a hand model will be over.” (I’m not a hand model!)

Thanks to your skill as a surgeon, I now have nearly complete use of all the digits on my left hand.  In the months of follow-up treatment, your jovial attitude and tenacious spirit to give me the best treatment humanly possible, was appreciated by me more than you know.

So, it’s with sincere heart-felt gratitude that I thank you for giving me complete use of my digits.

Thank you again, Paul.

P.S. – Please forgive the type written letter, since the “Wonton” like fingers fail to write very well.

T.R.

Dr. W,

You once told me, just a few bumps in the road, you have a long life ahead of you.  There are no words that I can express for you giving me that long life ahead.
Thank you……..for the million little ways you make a difference.

In saving my life!

M.B.

My Dear Dr. Wigoda,

I wanted to let you know how our son A.V. is doing.  You see you not only saved my sons arm, but you saved his life.  Anthony from high school drop out will now Graduate from UF this June with a Masters Degree in Accounting.  He used some of the money from his case to go to school, and buy us a home in Coral Springs.  You see your remarkable skills, and continuing care has blessed an entire family. God bless you and thank you!!

 

Always the V. Family

Dear Dr. Wigoda and Staff,

Thank you for making me feel great again.  After two kids I felt gravity took its toll.  I felt old and not good about my appearance in certain clothes.  Thank you! I now feel younger and more beautiful than ever.  On the day of my surgery the staff including nurses, techs, and anesthesiologist, and especially Dr. Wigoda and Lucy you all made me feel comfortable.  I appreciate your patience through my whiney appointments when I was in pain.  I was referred to your office and was told you all are the best.  Well, that’s no lie! Thanks for being the best!

Hi Lucy & Dr. Wigoda,

Just wanted to thank you again for the great work that you do as well as your wonderful, and professional staff.
I am so happy with my new look.  It seems to get better every day.
I also wanted to remind you to forward my before and after pictures. I would like to have then to send to my family up north.

Thank you again.

Best Regards,

L.L.

Dr. Wigoda,

Thank you for everything you’ve done for me, big and small! I really appreciate how you always keep calm, cool and collected while I freaked out!  You made me feel more comfortable and relaxed.  You’re a wonderful doctor, but on top of that, an amazing person!

Thank you!

E.M.

Dr. Wigoda and Nurse

Words cannot express my appreciation for everything you’ve done and taking in consideration the insurance my daughter did not have at the time of her accident.  As you may know I’m a nurse and I do this ‘cause I love helping people.  I’m just glad to have experience that in this field is mostly about “the money” someone like Dr. Wigoda has a heart and cares.

Thanks once again

Hopefully one day her father will be able to say or write “Thanks” so he can personally tell you – on behave of her father Edgar.

Hey Dr. Wigoda,

This is Rebecca A., the one with the finger accident.  I wanna thank you for all the help you’ve given me and my mother.  All the hospital bills, I do not understand, but I do know you touched my mother’s heart when you didn’t charge us for the visits.  Thanks to your wonderful nurse, for caring about our family situation.

Sincerely,

RA

Dr. Wigoda and Staff

I would like to take this time to thank your staff and you for the professional care, I received.  Again I thank you for the expertise in putting my body back together. May God bless each of you!
Thanks again

K.S. and Family

Dr. Wigoda,

I can’t thank you enough for the help you gave me a few weeks ago.
You are a wonderful and compassionate Doctor and a credit to your profession.
My diagnosis with breast cancer was a very low point in my life but I am trying to focus on the bright spots now and visiting your office was at the top of the list!

Thank you again

Dr. Wigoda:

Thank you so much for making me look great and, feel great to start off 2008!!!
Special thanks to all your staff for their kindness, talent and professionalism.

You are all great,

JCN

Dear Dr. Wigoda,

A belated thank you hardly seems appropriate for all your expertise and care that was given to Randi.  It meant a lot to us.  You must have wonderful feeling inside yourself to know something so small can make such a difference in someone’s life.  Breathing peacefully is a gift and you were the only one we thought or knew could do this with such professionalism.

Your skills go beyond.  It’s that personal concern that comes from within, always keep that with you that’s your gift.  We’re very grateful to have you in our lives.
Always and forever

Dear Folks,

Thank you and bless you for the care, the work, and the caring you poured on me during my skin cancer deal recently. Your work reminds me of the ideals and dreams I started out with many moons ago of how the world could be if we all could get mojos working at the same time somehow.
Love,

D.G.

Dear Dr. Wigoda and Staff
Thanks for turning back the clock and taking such good care of me.  I’ll be sending everyone I know…

Fondly,

A.

Dear Dr. Wigoda,

Robert and I don’t know where to begin to than you for everything you have done for us.  The past month and a half since we found out that I had cancer have been a bit scary.  That is, especially since Rob and I had each been through surgery already in the previous months, expending most of our savings.  The thought of cancer and a mastectomy are freighting enough.

We are so grateful to all of you doctors at Baylor who were so kind as to take on my case. I am so thrilled with the wonderful results of the reconstruction surgery that you did.  I had no idea that the results of the surgery would be so good and that I would look so normal.

I can’t tell you how grateful I will always be to you.  You made, what I thought was the end of the world, just the beginning of my new life.  We appreciate you and your kindness so much.

Thank you,

N.S.

Dear Dr W.,
I wanted to tell you how much I appreciate you for performing my surgery.  I’m very happy with the results.  I couldn’t have asked for a better surgeon, and I think you have a very bright and rewarding future to look forward to.  Best of luck to you with your career, and thanks again.

S.H.

Dear Dr. W,

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for all of your patience, understanding and humor.  You were so professional and caring… you give the profession a “good name”. I appreciate how comfortable you made me as a patient physically and emotionally.  I just had to thank you again.

Take care,

S.B.

Thank you for everything! You are truly the best!!!
Love,

D.

Dr. Wigoda,
I invite you and your staff to party with us this weekend! As a small token of my gratitude for a job well done.  So stop by and have a couple cervezas on us!

Hope to see you there!

Happy Chanukah… To you and your beautiful family!
Love

Dr. Wigoda,
My special gift for Christmas is – after 5 months – a healed wound!

Thank you for the special care in making this happen! I was definitely referred to the best in wound care! Have a great holiday season and thank you again!

P.K.

Dear Dr Wigoda,
I could not have chosen a better doctor and team to make my dream come true.  You, Debbie and the entire staff of the Aesthetics Institute have been absolutely amazing.

It took me 7 years to find the perfect doctor and one visit to feel completely confident about my decision.  You are the very best!!

D.

Dear Dr. Wigoda,
This postcard from my birthplace is to wish you a Happy New Year and to say thank you for giving me a treatment that “worked” congratulation for the good job, you do!!

Your new client.

Dear Dr. Wigoda,

I have always felt that a woman should be and look like a flower and I’ve had cosmetic surgeries throughout my adult life, working with my Plastic Surgeons.

Therefore I recognize, respect and appreciate exceptional skill.

Thank you,

R.

Dear Lucy, Susan and the rest of the staff

Thank you so much for everything you did for me, you made me feel special at a moment where I needed it the most.  You are all great, thank you for taking such good care of me it was very much appreciated.

Regards to all,

P.

Dear Dr. W:

It has been 10 weeks since my operations and since I became the “new me.”
I wish I had a video from a Bar Mitzvah I attended this weekend, everybody kept complimenting me on how great I looked.  I wish you could have heard them.  Even a couple of people where surprised that I had Plastic surgery in my face, that’s how natural I look.
As for myself, I can only say that the “new me” has me spending money on new clothes and makeup, and loving it.  I always felt young at heart, energetic & full of life, now I feel as of the clock turned backwards, and my face goes with how I feel.
I can’t thank you enough for being so good to me while recuperating.  Your daily visits to my Hotel meant more than words can express.  We also know you were just phone call away, with words that brought us so much peace and confidence that everything was OK and that is what we needed to hear.  I had no pain as you said, and would do it again in a minute.
Not only are you a great Doctor and good in what you do, but also a great human being,  It is a pleasure to have you as my Doctor. Once again, I appreciate everything you did, and thank you very very much.

Sincerely,

P.

Dr Wigoda,

Have you ever read the definition of “Plastic Surgeon”: A doctor who specializes in cosmetic and/or reconstructive surgery with the goal of improving the function and/or appearance of a body part.  The word “Plastic” derives from the Greek work “plastiko” meaning: to mould and shape.

First I want to say Thank you.  You were given an incredible challenge when I came into Broward General.  Time definitely was not on your side and you had to think quickly on each and every direction you were going to take.  You chose wisely and quickly in saving my life.  Each step was a challenge and a piece of art that you were able to shape and mold me back together.  You continued to give me the encouragement and strength that every step you were taking was going to be the best one.  I was able to get to know you and see that you are truly a man of great skill and compassion and for that I am truly grateful.  Your continous contact with me during my recovery, anwering my questions and giving me solutions has given me peace of mind so that I am able to move forward and not to be afraid.  When we are born into this world no one knows what journey in life we will experience.  But is we learn from our experience we have concurred the meaning of Life.

Thank you,

MB

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I came to you complaining about feeling tired, even though my eyes were wide open.  Now with my eyes looking so much better, I feel refreshed.  That was exactly what I asked of you.  You made me look like I was on a long vacation.  Those are the compliments I am getting these days.  Now about my neck, wow!!!! It looks like I am in my 30’s again.  Also I swear, I think I have a dimple now.  I am thrilled about looking at myself in the mirror these days.

The other comments I have to share with you is about your staff.  God bless Lucy and Mary.  They made me happy about coming to see you, although we did get in trouble several times about laughing too much.  It is hard to give away referrals these days, yet I will have no problem sharing my experience about you and your medical family.

Thankfully yours,

F.M.C.
