5 out of 5 stars Nose Surgery

Surgical Repair of a Broken Nose

Dr. Bentkover I wanted to "Thank You " so much for doing such a wonderful job in repairing my nose after my devastating fall. Even though I am still in the recovery phase, I am so pleased with the results. If anyone was to ever again operate on my face it would be you. I would like any potential patient, who fears nasal surgery to read this and let go of any fear they may have. You , Nancy and the entire office staff are exceptional! You care about your patients and have always demonstrated this via your kindness, caring attitude and compassion for what you do, which makes a difference in the patient experience. Being of a healthcare background myself, I also understand the importance of the patient, not just the procedure, and am fully aware that you also place that at the forefront of your practice. You, Nancy and the entire office staff are exceptional! I am so very pleased to have you so graciously brought your skills, talent and care into my life. Sincerely.

Awesome Mini Lift - Worcester, MA

Dr Stuart Bentkover is very skillful, experienced and professional. He works with me to understand my face anatomy, aging patterns and my desires for the face improvement. I trust his decisions and recommendations. I strongly believe that successful outcome and great look that I got after the mini lift was due to choose a great surgeon, not just the procedure. Also, all his office employees are highly professional and caring individuals!

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty with Dr. Bentkover - Worcester, MA

I chose Dr. Bentkover because I felt extremely confident in his ability to match the goals we discussed and he far exceeded my expectations-he is so extremely talented and clearly loves what he does. I absolutely love the outcome and couldn't be happier with my new, natural nose. I’ll never be able to thank Dr. Bentkover enough for changing my life. I disliked my nose since I was a young girl and when I finally started to look for a plastic surgeon, I took the process very seriously and spent hours doing research and consulting several different doctors. After my consultation with Dr. Bentkover, I couldn’t have been more impressed and confident in him and booked my surgery right then and there. Dr. Bentkover took the time to explain everything he would do during my surgery and listened to my goals as well. He made sure all of my questions were answered in detail so that I understood what would be done during my surgery. I never felt rushed or uncomfortable and the atmosphere of Dr. Bentkover’s office is truly warm and hospitable. St. Vincent’s is a gorgeous facility and I was so extremely impressed by the care I received from the nurses, anesthesiologist, and especially Dr. Bentkover on the day of my surgery. It’s evident that Dr. Bentkover and his wife Nancy care deeply about the satisfaction and outcomes of their patients. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome of my rhinoplasty with Dr. Bentkover-my nose is beautiful now and looks so natural on my face. I’m such a happier and more confident person thanks to Dr. Bentkover! Choosing him as my plastic surgeon was the best decision I ever made.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

28 Yr. Old White Female Hump Nose W/ Droopy Tip - Worcester, MA

Dr. Bentkover has almost 40 years of experience!! For me, personally, this was very comforting because he has seen and experienced it all. I felt confident that when it came to facial surgery, Dr. Bentkover as a specialized facial plastic surgeon, would provide the expertise and results desired. He also has performed thousands of rhinoplasties in his life and truly knows what he is doing. Dr. Bentkover and his RN wife, Nancy, are the type of people you can trust. He is honest, straightforward, and truly has your best interest in mind. I drove myself a bit crazy obsessing over what had to be done and looking back, I should have just said "Please fix my nose and make it pretty." It's only been 8 days post-surgery and I'm super super happy.

5 out of 5 stars Non Surgical Face Lift

Never Looked and Felt Better About Myself!

I first started going to Dr. Bentkover several years ago after meeting him at a "night of beauty event". In particular, he spoke about "fillers" and how they could transform your face. I was very impressed with the before and after pictures of his patients that he performed these procedures on. I give Dr. Bentkover and his staff a five star rating on everything!

5 out of 5 stars Acne Scars Treatment

Acne Scarring; Best Experience I Have Ever Had - Worcester, MA

Dr. Bentkover is brilliant. There is no other way to put it. I never had any doubts of the quality of his work, and the work truly speaks for itself. Dr. Bentkover is the type of doctor you would want to have in an emergency situation, no matter what the situation was. I went in for a follow up, and he noticed a problem that had nothing at all to do with his particular realm of medicine (Issue with my Leg). He got me into see a specialist 15 minutes later. An unbelievably great doctor, just as great of a person. If you are thinking of seeing a doctor for facial plastic surgery, you are crazy to go anywhere else. I cannot thank him enough for the work that he did for me.

Rhinoplasty Success - Worcester, MA

When deciding on making a change I was excited and terrified at the same time. What if something went wrong, what if I looked worse? When talking with Dr. Bentkover he helped me relax saw what I felt needed changing and then reassured me throughout the process. The biggest thing that stood out to compared to other places was the support and family atmosphere. If you make an appt you'll...
