Breast lift and 49 - Franklin, TN

There are some people doing exactly what they were put here on earth to do. I believe Dr. Burgdorf is one of those people. My whole experience from beginning to end was what I expected. The staff was very patient and kind. I made the right decision. Thank you so much, Dr. Burgdorf! G. Buchanan-Nashville

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Professional, Caring and Committed to the Community - Franklin, TN

Researched doctors in my area, RealSelf and other public rating websites, asked friends, then set up consultations with at three different doctors. Dr. Burgdorf really impressed me, during my consultation, my surgeries, and after care. Dr. Burgdorf and his staff are very professional and compassionate about care. They answered all my questions and concerns, offered several options and allowed me to make my own decisions. I really felt as though they were on my "journey" with me, rather than just a part of it. I recommend Dr. Burgdorf and his staff highly.

4 weeks post op - Nashville, TN

I can not tell you how happy I am that I chose Dr Bergdorf. I had seen two others Dr's before seeing Dr. Bergdorf. The time he spent going over all my questions and understanding exactly what I wanted made me feel so comfortable. That first office visit, I put my deposit down to have surgery by Dr Bergdorf. From the office visits to the surgery, Dr Bergdorf and his staff were very helpful and professional. I am 4 weeks post op and I feel great. I can not be happier with my new breasts. I will be a returning patient and will tell ALL my friends and family about Dr. Bergdorf. Thank you again.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

No More Jiggle Stomach - Franklin, TN

I was referred to Dr. Burgdorf by my OB she had stated he is one of the best PS in Franklin,TN. I truly believe he is. The first time I went to his office, I had called about 20 minutes before hand, to ask if he could see me that day, because I was in Franklin with my OB and I live about 45 minutes from Franklin and I didn't want to have to drive back out to Franklin if I didn't have to. So I...

Great Result! Never Second-Guessed My Decision - Franklin, TN

I am Dr. Burgdorf's patient care coordinator. After being in consultations with him and seeing the results our patients are getting, I decided to have the procedure myself. I was extremely confident in him and his expertise. He is an excellent surgeon and walked me through every step of the process so that I felt prepared and excited for my surgery.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Excellent Experience - Franklin, TN

Dr. Burgdorf performed my breast reduction, and the entire process from first consult to 3month follow up has gone very smoothly, which is especially excellent considering that Dr. Burgdorf changed practices between consult and surgery. He worked hard to make sure everything was set with his new practice in time for my surgery because the date I selected was not flexible. He and his staff took care of everything, and I didn't have to reschedule. The payment and insurance process has also been handled very well by his staff, which means no stress and headaches over claims for me! I also really appreciated his kind, but frank manner. He made sure that I understood my procedure and that I knew what to expect throughout the process, which also helped keep me stress free. I'm very satisfied with my results (the girls are great!), and have had a great experience with this doctor and his staff!
