I was referred to Dr. WEINFELD when another doctor discovered squamous cell cancer right under my cheekbone as a very small pimple on my face, I could not get rid of. After the biopsy, the other Dr. said you need to see Dr. Weinfeld. After Dr. Weinfeld saw me, and I cried and cried as its one thing to have a face lift or something like that, but when you are talking cancer under the skin and surgery, I thought I would be scarred for life. I was petrified! The day finally came when the surgery would take place, as immediately wasn't soon enough. When I was in surgery, he realized the cancer was deeper and worse than previously expected and he had to do what he called "the flap". Ok--the flap is a cut from my left temple, across under my eye,down passing the side of my nose area to right under my chin. Folding the skin back and digging out the cancer--He sewed me back up after getting ALL the cancer, and I woke up in recovery. I religiously did everything he told me to do-when he took the stitches out, I was shocked at how precise and perfect he made the incisions-and my face survived and I look fine. Dr. Weinfeld is a gift with his hands and precision-right-on-the-money surgery--and he cared about how I would walk through the rest of my life with my face. I hold my head up and face up proudly--He is the AMAZING!
