5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction with Latissimus Flap

Dr. Spiegel is absolutely the best surgeon for Breast Reconstruction

Dr. Spiegel is a brilliant surgeon. She is compassionate and treats her patients exactly as all doctors should-like real women with feelings and emotions. Though my reconstruction has been a bit complicated, Dr. S and the entire staff have been wonderful and attentive-especially Nicole, Jackie and Bianca! I appreciate the level of care that I have received throughout the entire process; Having...

Glad I Went to Dr. Spiegel! - Houston, TX

Dr. Spiegel is wonderful. She truly is the most conscientious, caring physician I have ever come across. She has a presence about her that demands respect from everyone around her. No infections or complications. She is the one you want doing your surgery. Her team is great, everyone is so helpful and returns calls quickly. If it is recommended to do the DIEP flap reconstruction, do it!...

Breast Reconstruction - Cancer - Houston, TX

She is a rock star - so very competent and human. Every interaction was informative and purposeful, and her staff (Carlos and Jackie) are fantastic. Dr. Spiegel is well known at the hospital - she is specific about how things will be done - and I'm thankful for it! Great results, no infections or complications, and no surprises! She is outstanding and we're very lucky she chooses to do breast reconstruction - she could, no doubt, make a lot more in pure cosmetic surgery because she is so talented. She is a breast cancer survivor's angel! Never imagined it would work out so well!!

DIEP Flap Surgery with Excellent Result - Houston, TX

My reconstructive surgeries were in 2011. Dr. Spiegel and her staff are very caring, dedicated profesionals. She listens to my concerns, and takes them seriously. I am very pleased with the outcome of my surgeries. This included effective reconnection of my nerves in my breast tissue.

You Don't Get Better Than This! - Houston, TX

When it comes to ratings-- all of them listed above are 5 Stars; if there were 10 stars offered as an option, I would have clicked all 10 stars. The Golden Star is Dr. Aldona Spiegel-- when compared to any other physicians anywhere else and/or in the same or any other specialty-- she (and her excellent office staff) are at the very top of any list with nobody else even coming close to it!

Results Are Not Typical - Houston, TX
