“Thank you for doing what no other doctor could do. I finally feel good about myself again and I’ll always remember you for helping me.”


“I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you. I took the bandages off yesterday. I love what you’ve done! After so long I’m finally happy with them! All the best.”


“I wanted to extend my sincere appreciation to you. The abdominoplasty surgery has made a tremendously positive impact in my life, both physically and mentally. You have a gift that goes beyond the cosmetic aspect of plastic surgery by putting an individual’s well being ahead of financial gain! My best to you always. Thank you again for your caring professionalism! Sincerely.”


“Thank you so much for everything. I am so happy with the results of your surgery. And also-you and your staff have been so kind and very professional. You have a great bedside manner and it really has made this whole ordeal so much easier. Fondly.”


“For your artistry, skill, compassion, and commitment-I will be forever grateful. Thanks for being there for me and for others. Fondly.”


“Thank you so much for all you did for me; you have made me feel pretty again! (I bet you hear that all the time). Always.”


“I wanted to thank you for helping me achieve a more youthful appearance. Your kindness and compassion and generosity mean more to me than you know. My life is full of challenges that require youth and strength. You have given me a bit of an ‘edge’ to help me achieve my goals. Thank you from my heart. See you soon.”


“Thank you for the outstanding work you performed on me. Your superlative surgical skills are incredible and I am intoxicated with the results. I am so pleased to have met you! Although we spoke just a few times, your charm, brilliance, and indescribable confidence and trust quickly came across. You really are one in a million. Best wishes for continued success, happiness, and all good things. Warmest regards.”


“Thank you so much for extending your kindness, expertise, and talent toward me. Your understanding and compassion have made coping with my condition and its consequences much easier. You have brought a huge dose of sunshine and peace into my life and household. I will be forever grateful for what you are doing for me and through me for my family. I realize what a tremendous commitment you have undertaken by agreeing to accept me as your patient. I suspect that my appreciation of your efforts and compassion will intensify with time (if it is possible to appreciate more) because the outcome of your decision and work will accompany me for the rest of my life. Thank you. With best wishes and much gratitude.”


“I so want to thank you for all that you have done for me. Physically, you have made me feel normal-‘the same’, and I am so happy for that. Thank you also for always making me feel like I was your only patient-always so kind. I hope you enjoy this gift-it is just a small thought to let you know how I feel. Thank you again! Sincerely.”


“Please know I am very pleased with my results so far and I’m in awe at your talent! Thank you for helping me to feel like a woman again and for all you do for others in this situation. I am blessed to be in your care!”


RealSelf Patient Reviews of Richard J. Restifo, MD


“I would like to thank you for taking the time to meet with myself and my friend, during the time of decisions with a surgeon and plastic surgeon. Your professionalism was put forward and your gentleman approach was very much appreciated. It’s been a month since surgery and all is terrific. Thanks for your honest kindness.”


“I wanted to thank you so much for everything you have done for me. Knowing I was going to lose my breast at such a young age was very difficult. I felt like I would never ‘look right’ in clothes, a bathing suit, or even to others. Then I was sent to you. I can’t believe what you were able to do for me. I occasionally get self-conscious that someone may see me while changing or trying on clothes, but I’m sure no one would even notice. I’m more confident and could not be happier with the results. Again, I want to thank you for your wonderful work. Sincerely.”


“Thank you for your outstanding care this year. Your surgical skill and compassion were extraordinary. I feel fortunate to have had you on my side. With sincere appreciation…”


“You gave back to me so much more than I can describe. A few months ago, if anyone had told me that, today, I would feel this wonderful, I would have thought they couldn’t possibly understand. Thank you for your medical skill, your quiet compassion and your patience. Sincerely.”


“I just wanted to thank you for all that you’ve done for me. I made a very big and scary decision, and through it all I felt extremely comfortable in your care. You truly are a gifted and special doctor! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. Sincerely.”


“You can be sure that you do have one very elated patient. I’m not sure what I expected after all your wonderful work but I did not expect to have such a natural looking bust. Dr. Restifo, you are, to say the least, very talented and I thank God every day that I found you. With sincere appreciation.”


“I would really be remiss if I didn’t tell you how very much I appreciate everything you’ve done over the past several months to help me overcome my breast cancer ordeal. Your confidence, compassion and support greatly eased my anxieties, and your consummate skills as a reconstructive surgeon have given me back hope and self assurance. I am very grateful!”
