Highly Recommended!!! – This is the first time i am writing about Dr. Pensler. The most professional, honest doctor. The staff is great! I had a breast augmentation, best result possible. When you get to meet the doctor, he spends a full hour with you. Listens to your questions and concerns and gives his honest opinion! besides the breast augmentation I was also interested in radiesse injections which he told me i was too young for and dont need it!!!! that was great to hear. :) The office is so clean and sanitary. Dr. Pensler spend so much time and answered every email and telephone call when i had additional questions before scheduling surgery. After the procedure, i was able to make an apointment at a time that is convenient for me! Everyone worked great with me. It has been two years now and I believe i refered atleast 8 other girls to him. I trusted him right away. His credentials say it all!!! The nurse was very caring and the girls at the office were great. One of the girls has been a patient of Dr. Pensler and she has such an awesome result like a walking advertisement for his work! :) The other girl had different procedures done and did not mind showing me her before and after photos which made me go wowww :) if I ever had to consider liposuction. I Would NEVER go to any other doctor. I had my girlfriend travel from NY just to have a procedure with Dr. Pensler. I thank him everytime i see him :) because unfortunetly I have girlfriends who have went to different plastic surgeons in Chicago and are very unhappy. Now they are considering going to Dr. Pensler to fix other surgeons mistakes... they will end up paying double when they could have had A perfect result the 1st time! You have to meet Dr. Pensler!!!!!!
gynecomastia – His business and presentation are a well oiled machine. every thing about this guy is calculated and methodical. He and his staff all come off as saints and present themselves VERY well. his adds are self promoted, just do the google and they all say the same thing. every website saying hes the best are his own websites. they are not referrals to numerous top doctors they only have one person on them and you guessed it Dr pensler. He lacks attention to detail, my incisions were jagged and not consistent with each other. i was under corrected and when i called him out on it he blew up and and in a very calculated way shut down the discussion. you will leave his office thinking you are the problem and that you have issues and his staff and his wife lori ( wife is his nurse) will just label you one of those people that will never be satisfied. his staff defends him fiercely . after the first surgery he just kept assuring me everything is fine. So giving it more time like he had asked, and months of follow ups i allowed dr to do a revision which only took him 30 or 40 minutes to do and yet Im still at square one Iv had 2 procedures and now have two scars on each areola because he didn't excise the the first incision he just cut threw it again. spent $5000 and still don't have the results i deserve. i feel any good doctor shouldn't have to advertise as much as he does and this chicago top doc is everywhere on the net. In hindsight I wished Id been more careful and knew more about what i was getting myself into. BTW there used to be more complaints about him here but recently this sight was somehow edited, leaving only one not so good and lots of positive outcomes giving him a high rating. every time someone adds to this site giving him a bad rating someone comes out with a story to defend this mom and pop operation and i wonder who...
Life Changer – When I was 8 months old, Dr. Pensler performed a complex, new facial-cranial surgery on me. He was kind, patient, and compassionate to my worried parents. Dr. Pensler was the most recommended surgeron that my parents could find. They were willing to travel around the country to find the best, and fortunately they found Dr. Pensler in our hometown of Chicago. I am now in medical books at Children's Memorial Hospital for how sucessful my surgery was. No one would ever guess that I had such a deformed skull when I was little. I have even gotten offers to model. I owe my life as I know it to Dr. Pensler. Thank you Dr. Pensler for making me beautiful. I am who I am because of you!
plastic surgeon – I had Dr. Pensler redo my nose. Everyone in the office was very professional and put up with my nervousness. I never waited more than ten minutes to see the doctor and most importantly he saved my nose after another doctor who claimed to be an expert on nose surgery took great pictures but the results had no resemblance to the photos he gave me.Very positive experience.The first time I met with Dr. Pensler he spent around an hour with me and reviewed my case and we discussed what I wanted and what he could do to help me. I am extremely happy with the results after the surgery.
Dr. Pensler was great to us! – My girlfriend was referred to Dr Pensler by her friend, a previous patient of his. We went into see the doc and he was nothing but nice, professional, and calm. I don't know what some of the other people are talking about but my girlfriend's surgery was perfect. She actually went to two consultations before the surgery just to make sure she got the right size for the augmentation. He didn't even charge for the second visit which took 30 minutes out of his day. When it came time for the surgery the staff was excellent. My girlfriend was out of there right on time as he said she would be, she was sore for 2 days but was up and walking around. Her surgery turned out GREAT!!! She has no complaints and would reccomend Dr Pensler to anyone looking to get a breast augmentation. It's been two months now and there are ZERO complications. He always took the time to sit and talk with us to make it personable which is impossible to find with a doctor these days. I was very impressed with every aspect of the surgery and results.
I checked four other surgeons in Chicago for breast augmentation before having Dr. Pensler do the surgery. My breasts look great and feel great . I have recommended my sister to him! He spent a lot of time with me going over everything and was patient with me regarding my choice of the size,which I changed bigger then back to where I originally decided. Also the staff was great.
Great Results – I had rhinoplasty with Dr. Pensler about 2 months ago and I couldn't be happier. I found his staff and himself to be very professional. He did exactly what I wanted, and yet it looks so natural. Also, I didn't feel pressure from him to do the surgery like I did with other surgeons I met with. When considering rhinoplasty you have to be realistic about the outcome and it takes up to one year to see final results. But, you should already know that if you have done the necessary research.
Surgeon – Had nasal surgery done with excellent result. 2 months ago. I am writing this because there is some nut who posted a suposed experience. The staff and surgeon could not have been nicer or more professional. He was recommended by my cousin who he operated on and my GP. I thought about the surgery for several months before going ahead.My nose looks basically the same from the front which is what a wanted, with a dramatic difference form the side.
nose surgery – I got Dr. Pensler's name from another Plastic Surgeon who had done surgery on my hand. While I was waiting to see him I saw another plastic surgeon because it took six weeks to get an appointment. He was nice and told me he could do three of the four things I wanted done to my nose and explained to me why he thought it would not result in an improvement to do the fourth.He also used the computer to simulate the results.There was no pressure to book surgery ,unlike the other surgeon I saw.The surgery went well,the brusing lasted about five days, and the splint came off at one week.My nose looks great both me and my fiancee love it!
I had two previous rhinoplasty operations by another Chicago surgeon before seeing Dr. Pensler. He spent an hour with me before surgery and I went back a second time for 20 minutes. The surgery went well ,about the same swelling as the last two times but what I difference. I look great and my friends think I look fantastic. I am three months out from surgery. The office staff are very nice and professional.
