Breast Augmentation

Dr. Teitelbaum's staff was insanely friendly and knowledgeable. Made me feel comfortable throughout my entire consult appointment. Dr. Teitelbaum himself is obviously a very smart and professional man. I trust that he would never do something to my body that he himself didn't believe was anything less than perfect. I scheduled my surgery 3 days after my consult with Dr. Teitelbaum and I absolutely cannot wait for the day to come! Even the surgery prep materials and paperwork that were sent to me were so thoroughly organized and easy to understand. Even though I haven't had my surgery yet, I'd be comfortable recommending Dr. Teitelbaum and his team to anyone - in fact, one of my friends already scheduled a breast reduction consultation with him after I told her of my experience!!

Breast Augmentation

All staff was highly knowledgeable, professional, respectful and friendly. I felt I could call about any questions I had, big or small. I appreciated Dr. Teitelbaum’s expertise and evaluation of my overall breast aesthetic. I could not be happier with the result.

Breast Augmentation

The patient packet sent to me a few weeks before the surgery was so detailed and helpful. I also appreciate that the office (April) was in such close contact with me in the weeks and days leading up to the surgery. On the day of the surgery I felt so taken care of by the entire staff. [Single best thing is...] The results! I also appreciate the the recovery was pretty easy because of the meticulous planning and communication of the staff.

Breast Implant Revision

We love Dr. Teitelbaum

Mini Tummy Tuck

Doctor Teitlebaum and his entire staff's expertise was not lost on me. I value their outlook and opinions on every aspect of my surgery. I would definitely recommend this office to my friends and family. My clothing fits better around my waistline and tummy area. I look forward to being on our boat in a bikini without feeling embarrassed!

Breast Augmentation

The experience lacked nothing. It was worth paying for the consultation because the surgeon really took his time and I felt like I got everything I would need from a consult.

Breast Lift

I feel more comfortable and actually fill out my bras. The staff (EVERYONE) were professional, helpful, encouraging, and friendly. I feel completely at easy and not nervous at all.

Male Breast Reduction

Very clear communication and responses to questions. Upfront communication about expected outcomes and certain aspects that may not be improved as much with surgery. Clean and welcoming office (w/ coffee out front!)

Breast Augmentation

I had all the information I needed to feel comfortable at every step in the process. My results are perfect and natural, which is all thanks to Dr. T who told me not to go bigger (He was so right). I felt great the next day and was out and about. Truly such a great experience from start to finish! I am so happy now. Every time I look in the mirror or put on any shirt I just radiate confidence. I think people who are naturally self conscious about a lot of things should avoid surgery but for me it was really just the size of my boobs as they didn't match my body type. Now I feel fabulous :)

Breast Implant Revision

Dr T exceeded my expectations, I am beyond happy with my breast revision and liposuction! It was wonderful experience.

Breast Implant Removal

The best thing about my surgical procedure experience is how great I feel. . I am highly satisfied with Dr. Teitelbaum and all of his staff. Dr. Teitelbaum is the best at what he does. He has a true gift and I will never go to anyone else. I am 63 and for the first time in my life I am truly happy with the work I have had done. He truly cares about you and it shows in his work, his staff, and his office. Hats off to Dr. Teitelbaum he is the BEST!

Breast Implant Removal

Dr T is one of the best, I went to him for my implants and am now going back to have them removed with a fat transfer. His honestly and ethics are very refreshing in the world of cosmetic surgery.

Chin Surgery

Professional friendly experience

Breast Lift

My entire experience was great. Dr. Teitlebaum did a wonderful job and was always available for questions. He was very responsive and kind. I had no pain with this surgery and the anesthesiologist was very attentive to my concerns. The staff was so friendly and also very available for any questions or concerns. Overall my entire experience was fantastic, including my results!! It was very easy. Everything went just right and I felt very comfortable through the entire process. Most importantly, I trusted Dr. Teitlebaum and staff!

Breast Augmentation

More self-confidence and just more comfortable in general about wearing clothes. Clothes fit better and everything just looks more symmetrical. It's subtle for others, but such an awesome change for me. I have been meaning to write a review for awhile. I can't say enough about Dr. Teitelbaum and his Staff. I am a mom who just needed some help in the post-baby body area. I wasn't looking to do anything crazy, but just improve what was already there and this was perfectly accomplished. Every part of my experience with this office was wonderful from start to finish. I really mean this. These are big life decisions and to feel such amazing support and care (despite all their many clients) makes all the difference in the world and I felt important and not just another another patient passing through. I have already highly recommended Dr. Teitelbaum to many other people. And to speak specifically of Dr. Teitelbaum - he is very real and genuine. He isn't going for the sale or the upsell or anything like that. I never felt pressure at all. His communication is very open and honest and he definitely knows what he is talking about. Do your research (and he will tell you to do this too) and you will find he has so much incredible experience and teaches others the best practices of plastic surgery because he very much cares about doing the ethical thing and keeping integrity in on this subject. Thank you for a wonderful experience. Thanks for reading.


I have had a prior facelift procedure with Dr. Teitelbaum. He is top flight. Well credentialed. Respected by his peers. Great credentials. And is a caring and attentive physician. I could not recommend him highly enough. In addition his staff are top flight and wonderful people.

Breast Implant Removal

No issues or complications Felt as though I was in the best of hands The confidence and kindness of the surgeon

Face Lift

Dr. T listens to the patient and will give you his honest opinion if he has any concerns. He want to give the patient the best outcome without overdoing it and changing the entire look of the person. Excellent surgeon and conservation, exactly what I want. I no longer have to look at the folds in my lower face & neck when I look down.


Every single member of the staff was extremely nice and made me feel comfortable. I did end up scheduling surgery. The only reason we could not do it the day I was in the office is because I needed to be seen by a breast surgeon who is also going to be doing surgery on me as well. The patient coordinator Vicki did make an appointment with that doctor for me. She got me in the next day and was very good at getting everything scheduled with the other doctor. I did not have to do anything. They have taken care of everything. My nurse April is wonderful and has answered every question I have had about getting ready for surgery and she is making me feel at ease with my upcoming surgery.

Tummy Tuck

Everyone was wonderful. April is amazing. Highly recommend Dr Teitelbaum, his office and his staff. Great experience. Much more confident now.
