I decided to write this review so everyone can know how fabulous Dr. Gregory Weiner is. In general people always write bad reviews when things are not upto par but when individuals experience great service it is never shared.
I live in Chicago and had consultations with 3 doctors.
Dr. David Ross, Dr. Kenneth Stein and Dr. Gregory Weiner.
I met each surgeon seperately and had a list of questions to go over with them. All my consultations were free. I made sure to do my homework prior to seeing any doctors. Dr. David Ross was
recommended by my friend who had Lipo done with him. After seeing Dr. Ross I could feel he felt uncomfortable to preform this surgery. I could see he might be great at other types of surgeries but had little experience with butt implants.
I then called to make an appointment with Dr. Stein. I got an appointment right away. After speaking with him, I still didn't feel at ease. The facility was a bit run down which made me feel uneasy. I could hear thru the wall when Dr. Stein was consulting other patients. Dr. Stein gave me confidence that he could preform the surgery but somehow i still didn't feel 100% comfortable.
Lastly, I called Dr. Wieners office to make an appointment to see him. They got me in right away and i was able to meet with his assistant Carolyn. When i first arrived i noticed that his office was located on the campus Resurrection Medical Center which gave me some comfort. I walked into the office... It was well maintained. I then met with his assistant Carolyn who answered alI my questions. I made another appointment to see Dr.Weiner in person so I can get to know him.
Dr. Weiner answered all my questions I had in mind. He educates you about the procedure and great manners overall. He treats you with the upmost respect.
I had my surgery on June 24, 2013. Came to the office at 6:30am... The entire team was ready and extremely professional. The anesthesiologist was GREAT!!! He is the absolute best. He assured me that I was going to be ok and started to crack jokes so I can loosen up. :-)
I woke up from surgery and the nurse was beside me. I asked the nurse if I can take my pain med's before i got home because I didn't want to feel any pain. I took my med's and slept in the back car seat flat on my stomach. The ride back home wasn't bad... I came home ate and went to bed. The first day wasn't bad at all. It was a walk in the park. I had to return the next day to see the doctor for a follow up. The office team helped me get myself together as i couldnt bend to put on my clothes and shoes. They were there to help every step of the way.
Day 3 is where everything changed. I was in a lot of pain, fever and nauseous. Day 4 pain was still there but better than the day before. Day 5 woke up feeling great!! I wasn't nauseous but was still in pain.
Day 10 came back to the office to take my drains out. Dr. Weiner explained everything before he took the drains out. Every step he took... he made sure to notify me of what was being done. I like to know what is being done to me. I plan to see him in two weeks to remove the stitches. I still haven't decided if its worth the surgery as I'm still recovering. The results are GREAT but I'm so afraid I may get an infection. I'm taking the recovery seriously and i am doing everything Dr. Weiner instructs me to do. I have 4 more weeks till I'm on the clear. Sleeping on my stomach is not a challenge as I always slept that way. This recovery is what I anticipated it to be ...slow long process!
