What do clients have to say about you?

Dear Dr. Bottger,

It has been one year since my operation (Breast Reduction). I wanted to than k you for everything you have done. This year was great with wearing any shirt I wanted and not feeling self-conscious on how I looked. I have
received so many compliments and I owe it all to you! Thank you for making me feel so comfortable with everything and making my operation a success!!!

Dear Dr. Bottger,

I wanted to drop you a line to let you know how pleased I am with the fine job of surgery that you did on my face. I am especially pleased with my eyes and forehead. It is the first time in years that I feel free to go without bangs.

Dear Dr. Bottger,

Words cannot adequately express the full range of emotions I have gone through during this experience. Excitement, indecision, elation and appreciation to name a few. For the first two weeks after my surgery I looked in the mirror constantly with awe at the transformation. I kept returning to the mirror to admire my new body. My stomach was actually sunken in! The mirror became a friend rather than a foe. I have a renewed confidence that is spilling over into all areas of my life. I would like to thank you for not only being professional, but also for being gentle and friendly. Your down to earth disposition has made it very easy to talk to you. You have taken my abdomen back to how it looked 20 years ago. I cannot wait for all the swelling to subside and know everything will get even better with time.
