Dear Dr. Bottger, Mary Jo, Paulette, Helen, and Shannon, and anyone else I missed,
I just wanted to let you know that I think of you all often, always lovely, and not just when I pull my neck folds up or pull my face tight. You made my visits there so wonderful, so welcome, so safe. I hope that you all are dealing with this extraordinary time, that you all are well, and I hope to see you again someday! (maybe for that turkey neck)



I am having a hard time expressing my gratitude for my blepharoplasty. I hope you know how much I appreciate you. You have an amazing gift and you are a wonderful surgeon and human. I love being a recipient and witness to your mad skills! Being a part of your practice is a joyful experience. With much love and all my thanks

Dear Dr. Bottger,

I am not sure that words are adequate, but here [it] goes… Thank you, thank you, thank you. It couldn’t have been easy and I am forever grateful!

Dear Dr. Bottger:

Thank you so much for making an “old gal’s” face dreams come true. You are very creative & talented to actually form the sculptured area between my upper lip & nose! Bravo! I will be inquiring about the “timing” of my brow lift surgery related to my latest “botox injections” in the same area…

Also, happy holidays to you and your family and staff.

Dear Dr. Bottger, I would like to thank you and tell you how much I appreciate all you have done for me during my very difficult nose surgery. I am so happy with the results so far. Looking back at pictures of me with the huge hole and flap I can’t believe how good my nose looks now. My wife and I are so thankful for the kindness you and your very caring staff showed us over all these long months of care. See you in a few months for the next phase of treatment. With Sincere Gratitude, J

Dear Dr. Bottger,

Thank you so much for the great job you did. Everything has turned out good and all pain is gone. You and your staff were so good to me.

Thanks again.

Dear Dr. Bottger & Staff,

Many thank you’s!!

Everyone has taken great care of my daughter. You have made her comfortable and prepared for the surgery.

Thank you a million!

Dear Dr. Bottger,

I was an ordinary patient, but you and your team took care of me as if I was the most important person on earth!

Thank you for the skill, experience, and personal care you so generously invest in your patients. We each have our unique stories of a life transformed for the better by your legendary gifts. We are profoundly grateful for the life-changing difference you’ve made in ours.

Thank you!

Dear Dr. Bottger, Mary Jo, and office staff,

Thank you for your compassion, kindness, patience, empathy, and care as I heal and recover! Your attention in what has been a psychologically life-changing process is unmatched. I appreciate your amazing work more than I can say!

Dr. Bottger, I thank you every day for what you accomplished with my old dilapidated body. You released me from all the burden of being uncomfortable in my own skin. This world is a little warped, how everyone is constantly awarding movie stars and rock stars, all the awards should be going to scientist and doctors like yourself. You deserve all the accolades for giving your patients freedom from their inner turmoil. Thank you for changing my life for the better, I feel like you’ve given me a second chance at being the best me I can be. I’m going to take this head start you gave me and keep the ball running till I slam dunk it into the goal line. Thank you for choosing your very demanding profession as a surgeon, all your work is not in vain, you have changed my life and I will always be grateful. I’m enclosing a picture that I will be posting on areal self. As a Joke I put on my 22 year old bikini and sent it to her. She answered “very scary”. I then sent it to my sister and she replied “wow, he turned you into a Bond girl!” I thought you deserved to hear that compliment more than me, since you did all the work!!

Dear Dr. Bottger,

On the 1st Anniversary of my breast reduction/uplift (October 14, 2014), I wanted to thank you for your skills and professionalism again. Thank you so much. I am pleased with the results, with my new “figure” and rejuvenation (literally, you took a weight off my shoulders!) and energy renewed.

Unbelievably, I had not a moment of pain and the entire event from beginning to end was entirely stress-free. And thank you also for the wonderful results of both my daughter’s surgery and my son’s surgery.

Warmest best wishes and gratefully,

I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

To All:

Thank you so much for the great care you extend to your patients.

What a blessing to have such a warm & compassionate office staff.

Best wishes for 2016

Dr. Bottger,

Thank you for knowing me as a person. Thank you for giving me my confidence back. You are an excellent surgeon and good at what you do.

You have a wonderful gift, and I appreciate your time and commitment.

Your office and staff showed me professionalism and concern during this time. I thank you for everything and enjoy your holiday.

Caring always.

You’re Awesome!

Thank you again.

Hello Mary Jo and Dr Bottger! I am so happy with the results, I could literally cry! Purely ecstatic! I feel more womanly and beautiful. I went from having nothing (and I mean nothing) to something over night! They still have dropping to do, but I love love love them already! Thanks to the both of you for making this possible. Everything from the consult to the post op appointment was a breeze. I felt so comfortable and warm. Mary Jo, thank you for all your patience in answering my 1 million questions! Haha. You are a star employee and oh so sweet! Dr Bottger, you are an amazing surgeon. I have no idea how you worked your magic on my “upside down pyramid” figure (still laughing about that). It’s a complete change! I am very thankful.. Worth every penny.

Dr. David Bottger performed my tummy tuck operation (full abdominoplasty with plication) in October, 2013 and I am very pleased with the results. Since the birth of my second child, I had diastasis recti and an umbilical hernia. For four years, I looked like I was about three months pregnant. My stomach, and belly button, stuck out no matter how many abdominal exercises I did. Since my tummy tuck, I look the way I did before I had children.
From the initial consultation through my final follow-up appointment, I found Dr. Bottger to be patient, honest and candid. At every stage of the process, he thoroughly answered all of my questions, and my husband’s, and told us exactly what to expect. I found Dr. Bottger’s staff to be very friendly, efficient and flexible with scheduling. In addition, I found Dr. Bottger’s detailed website to be very helpful and informative both before and after my tummy tuck.

Because of his candid demeanor, professionalism, technical skill, excellent staff and convenient location, I would highly recommend Dr. Bottger to anyone in the Delaware Valley seeking a tummy tuck.

Dear Dr. Bottger –

This note is so overdue…I wanted to write to say how happy I am with my eye surgery (from January!). I feel like a million bucks – every day! It was worth every penny!

Thank you for your talents and mad skillz…and for putting me at ease during every step of the process. I have moved to Chestnut Hill, so it’s difficult getting to your office, but one day I will get in for my “after” pic. Probably when I get my next Radiesse shot, when it’s in the budget.

Thank you again and have a lovely holiday season.

. . . I want to say that every day, at some point in my day, I mentally than k you. When I look down in the shower and I see my feet. When I sit down without a roll blobbing over. When I spoon in bed with my husband and he puts his arm around me, and his hand on my stomach. I cannot truly express what a change you have made in my life. So again, than k you. And please also thank your wonderful, caring and always helpful staff.

Dear Dr. Bottger,

You are amazing! Although I am in some pain after my appt. with you today, know the end result will be fabulous.

You are the absolute best.

Dear Dr. Bottger,

Just a note and a token of love for what you done for me. For example, your professional skills has given me a much healthier lifestyle for which my family and I are very thankful.

Thanks so much

To all involved,

Thank you for the kind and professional manner in which I was treated on all of my visits to the office & over the telephone.

I truly felt as though I mattered & that no question was too silly to ask.

I feel very blessed to have had such a wonderful doctor & staff in 2 very easy surgeries for me.

Thank you all so much for your care, professionalism and friendship. Continue to do great work and keep us patients feeling and looking good!!

Have a most prosperous and blessed new year!

Dear Dr. Bottger,

Not only at Thanksgiving but every day of my life I give thanks to you for fixing my hands.

May you, your family and everyone in your office have a wonderful holiday.

Dear Dr. Bottger,

I think of you everytime I put a barrette in my hair, brush my teeth, open the car door, flip my rolodex at work, sort papers, wash dishes, turn my washing machine on, use a shirt hanger, etc., etc., etc.

Imagine – this is just my right hand, the one you fixed – I’m completely left-handed.

I feel I have a new lease on life – than k you for everything!

Dr. Bottger,

You did a wonderful job and I feel like a new person.

Dear Dr. Bottger,

I would like to thank you again for my successful operation. I’ve healed wonderfully. My shoulders and back feel good. It’s great not to have all that weight hanging and being supported by my shoulders.

God bless you!

P.S. It’s great to fit in a bathing suit.

To all the staff

“I want to thank all of you, not just for what you did, which was wonderful, but for the warmth and the caring you put into it.

You’re all very special people.”

Thank you so much! =)

Mary Jo,

You are a very kind & unique person. With your kind words & your loving support help me to a speedy recovery & a positive outlook toward the new me.

You and the staff in Dr. Bottger’s office are the greatest. I’ve never met people in a doctor’s office so warm & caring. Thank you for all you do.

Dr. Bottger,

Thank you for all that you did to correct the “crater” on my forehead. It looks great now, after the plastic surgery. I appreciate how you explained the procedure, thorough pre- and post-op instructions to me, and the help that all of your office staff showed. I am sorry that I couldn’t come and thank you in person.

But I appreciate the fact you use your skills/gifts to produce such a great result.

Thank you for everything.

Dr. Bottger –

Thank you for adding 10 years to my life. I had the nicest evening with a 26 year old – He couldn’t believe I was 47!

I feel so much younger too!

Thank you again

Dear Dr. Bottger & Christa,

Thank you. I very much appreciate the treatment at your practice. I’m very happy so far with my results from my implant surgery. Christa, you were always so helpful with all my questions & concerns; you & the other ladies (and we know I had a lot of questions). I was very pleased with the knowledge of all the girls about my procedure. It’s important to let people know when they do a wonderful job & that they are appreciated – thank you –

I have referred many of my friends and family members to Dr. Bottger, for what I feel to be the best in plastic surgery.

Again, many thanks & the best to you all

Thank you for your compassion and assistance before, during and after my surgical procedure. You have made the journey so much easier.

To Dr. Bottger & the really great staff; Mary Jo, Shannon, Krista,

Thank you so much for all your help – Dr. Bottger – I feel great & I feel that now I am all evened out. My recovery is going great!! I never felt so good.

See you in a few months.

Dear Dr. Bottger,

It has been one year since my operation (Breast Reduction). I wanted to than k you for everything you have done. This year was great with wearing any shirt I wanted and not feeling self-conscious on how I looked. I have received so many compliments and I owe it all to you! Thank you for making me feel so comfortable with everything and making my operation a success!!!

Dear Dr. Bottger,

“Many thanks” . . . for your generosity and the wonderfully positive, healing and “down to earth” energy your spirit puts forth. I am sure all of your patients, as well as co-workers, family and friends, are grateful for your presence. Please enjoy the Tommy Emmanuel CD; it is just a small token of my appreciation.

Much respect

Dr. Bottger & Staff,

I don’t know where to begin in thanking you for the way in which you’ve changed my life for the better. Never did I think I’d feel as confident and beautiful again. And now I do!!

Dr. Bottger – you are an amazing surgeon and artist. No wonder you come so highly recommended. Despite the healing pains, I would do it all over again.

To your staff – my gratitude for always being kind and patient with me when I called in (sometimes every day).

My heartfelt thanks to all of you.

Dr. Bottger –

Thank you so much for fixing some minor issues last week. I love my waist line. You did an incredible job trimming me down even more. Not only are you great at your job, but you have such a pleasant personality. It makes the appointment/procedure that much more comfortable. You’re the best!

P.S. I love your staff. Please tell Shannon, Christa and Mary Jo I thank them.

Dear Dr. Bottger,

It is that time of year again and being able to use my hand without pain is one of life’s greatest blessings. Thank you for making this possible.

Dear Dr. Bottger,

Words cannot adequately express the full range of emotions I have gone through during this experience. Excitement, indecision, elation and appreciation to name a few. For the first two weeks after my surgery I looked in the mirror constantly with awe at the transformation. I kept returning to the mirror to admire my new body. My stomach was actually sunken in! The mirror became a friend rather than a foe. I have a renewed confidence that is spilling over into all areas of my life. I would like to thank you for not only being professional, but also for being gentle and friendly. Your down to earth disposition has made it very easy to talk to you. You have taken my abdomen back to how it looked 20 years ago. I cannot wait for all the swelling to subside and know everything will get even better with time.

Dr. Bottger

I believe all make sense. In life- there are thousands of plastic surgeons out there and I happened to choose you! Also, as you already know, I am working hard to make sure that I become a plastic surgeon. So you see, I think that this is just not a coincidence.

Dr. Bottger, for many years I have thought about “fixing” what made me uncomfortable about my body and now I have the opportunity, I am more than grateful to grab it and actually stick to it.

Since I am happy but a bit nervous, I thought I should let you know that I am thankful. Thank you for your patience and kindness. Thank you for making me look better. And please believe me . . . I do trust you! Please remember that in the operating room.

Thank you again and again!

Dear Dr. Bottger,

I wanted to drop you a line to let you know how pleased I am with fine job of surgery that you did on my face.

I am especially pleased with my eyes and forehead. It is the first time in years that I feel free to go without bangs.

I will be coming to Phila. in late June or July, and will make an appointment so that you can see the final results and take some after pictures.

Dr. Bottger,

Thank you again for taking the time last week to give me stitches. It was very courteous of you to meet my mom and I on your personal time. You did amazing work!

Thanks greatly.

Dear Dr. Bottger

Thank you for making the procedure that I’ve been worried and nervous about for years easy and painless – with good music too! Now, not only do I have a painful ugly bump gone – I actually feel better about myself and I can wear whatever I want! Thank you again

Dear Dr. Bottger,

I just wanted to say thank you for all you have done for me. I think it has been almost six years and each time I leave your office I feel great! You are truly a wonderful doctor, as well as a good person and I count myself lucky to have been brought to you.

I would be amiss if I did not say how wonderful your office staff is too – they are awesome!
