There is not a single doubt in my mind that that surgeon M.D. Dr. Pensler is the TOP plastic surgeon Chicago. I have been to a few other plastic surgeons throughout Chicago before coming to Dr. Pensler and out of all honesty they didn’t even take a fraction of the time to analyze and answer the questions and make it understandable to me on how everything is going to work and turn out. With other surgeons I’ve walked out of the consultation still confused and questionable. From the time I stepped foot into Dr. Pensler’s office with my husband and two children, I could feel the vibe that I was in the right place. Justina and Sheena were very attentive to myself and also took the time to get to know my children and occupy them while I was getting my consultation done. The consultation answered all of my questions and plus more. He took the time to measure and show me visual 3D of various sizes on my own body which not all plastic surgeons have that program. Dr. Pensler also made it his number one goal to make sure what I wanted to achieve. He is very professional and very well spoken. I’m very nervous to begin with but when it came to Dr. Pensler I was able to be comfortable to speak to him. He even took the time for an additional 30 min. to sit down with my husband alone to explain everything about the size and the type of procedure we chose. During my procedure nurse Laurie brought me in a very comfortable state of mind. My breast implants plastic surgery procedure went very well and my results were so phenomenal that I can’t even begin to find the words on how satisfied I am. Thank you Dr. Pensler and staff! 🙂 ~ YELP
