"I am considering the procedure but have not made up my mind yet. I feel positively toward Dr. Gelman and would consider having him perform this surgery, but he is the first physician I've consulted and need to consider this a bit more."

"the office was extremely hot, every room and hall. left me uncomfortable and cranky. i felt like the dr. and i were not on the same page at the same time. this likely would be different had i not been sweating. i was there an hour easy. dr and staff could not have treated me any better. my only complaint was the HEAT! i have an extensive medical background, well, more than most have in their family and extended family. i have shared my time with over 50 drs from many fiedlds of study and have never met one that had such a delicate bedside manor or offered so much focussed time. i do believe he is in a league of his own.

"First of all, let me state that everyone involved in this appointment was courtous and professional. I felt very comfortable, except for the fact the the previous week I fractured a rib which is now healing. My original plan to have this procedure done immediately have been dashed; however, I would like to have a face lift after the holidays in the winter of 2012. The unsettling issues for me were the following: 1. I was quoted on the phone that the cost of a neck lift inclusive of everything would be nbo more that $7,000. I was very careful in wording my cost question. After my consult, I was told the cost would be $8,770. When I mentioned the phone quote it was discounted $500 Which would have made the procedure $8270. These quotes from the office staff range approximately 16-20% higher than the original phone quote. I do not bargain well whether buying a car or hiring a contractor to do my condo. I interview, review quotes and then simply make a decision. It's just my style. Dr. Geldner did explain the procedures well, and I feel confident that I need a facelift rather than a neck lift to get the results I desire. When I received that quote I felt that it too had a built-ion percentage upcharge that was based on the original necklift price. 2. I was not confortable with the limited before and after photos. None of these images were even close to the sagginess and extra skin I have hanging from my neck. These women were all thin. If I had their sagging neck I would not even have surgery done. They did not have one photo of anyone that resembled my weight or neckline problem. Even though I am certain that Dr. Geldner is very competent, I would not consider going through with the procedures unless I could be shown pictures that would showcase his surgical skills with my unsightly neck and jowl problem. 3. What happened to the free skin consult that was supposed to follow the surgical consult? 4. I will be looking for a doctor that stands by his quoted price, and has photos to boost my confidence in having this surgery, I quess I am extra cautious because I have no prior experience with plastic surgery and no that no matter what the outcome, I do not plan on ever having any other work done on my face. This would be my first and last surgery. I need for it to be sucessful, and to feel assured that what ever price is quoted, it will be honored through fuition."

Profile

Dr. Peter D. Geldner has consistently been ranked among the top plastic surgeons in Chicago, and his downtown practice-- The Geldner Center-- has quickly become one of the Midwest's foremost cosmetic surgery destinations.

While earning his medical degree at the University of Wisconsin in the early 1980s, Dr. Geldner encountered a young burn victim who'd had his skin successfully treated and repaired by a plastic surgeon. This experience motivated Dr. Geldner to pursue plastic surgery as his chosen field. Nearly 30 years later, he remains devoted to the health, well being, and self confidence of each and every patient that visits his Chicago offices. Great results are always the goal, but at the Geldner Center, first class customer service is also essential.

Dr. Geldner is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and is a member of the American Medical Association, American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. He is also the former President of the Chicago Society of Plastic Surgeons and is a noted Clinical Assistant and Instructor with the University of Chicago's Department of Surgery.

Whether you live in Lincoln Park, Lakeview, the Gold Coast or downtown in the Loop, Dr. Geldner's plastic surgery offices are just a short drive or train ride away. People in the suburbs can also visit with the doctor at his second location in Oak Brook, IL.

From tummy tucks to facelifts, vaser lipo treatments to advanced breast augmentation, Chicago can count on the experience, care, and skill of Dr. Peter Geldner-- one of Castle Connelly's esteemed "Top Doctors" from 2005 2009.
