So i was watching national geographic and there was a plastic surgeon on it from south florida, which made me think of this one plastic surgeon my husband saw in 1998 when we lived in south Florida..so I looked him up on Google, and there he was. That picture was definately him. My husband was in a motorcycle accident his femur broke and came though the side of his knee, was dragged down the road a bit, needless to say when all was said and done, Grade 3B open fracture dislocation, big hole..Dr. peter thomaselllo did an excellent job of putting his leg back together, we were very grateful to him for not just amputating..my husband didnt have insurance...he was in hospital for 2 months, with a big hole in his leg with the medial gastroc flap exposed, Dr. ueker was consulted to do a skin graft and cover the flap, he did it for no charge..we only had to pay for the office visits before and after the surgeries...The man was a godsend!! He didnt have to do what he did, It certainly said alot about his character and what kind of person he is. My husband has since passed but he talked highly of Dr. Ueker every time someone asked him what was wrong with his knee.. I can only imagine that after 19 years he has only gotten better..
I am a 15 year breast cancer survivor, and although my surgeries with Dr. Uecker were some time ago, I will always remember his excellent bed-side manner and immeasurable talent as a surgeon. I have had 5 surgeries with him, including a free-tram flap reconstruction, which went perfectly! Each and every time I had an appointment with him he showed me extra personal care and consideration. He answers any and all questions, and never rushes the patient. His staff has ALWAYS been friendly, considerate, and personable, and there is never a wait as appointments always run on schedule. I would highly recommend Dr. Uecker to anyone. Love him!
In the beginning dr uecker was extremely nice took his time and the staff too until I had a mini tuck and it turned out to be so ugly I looked worse than before. It looked like a had a butt on my stomach. It looked like I was cut horizontally and vertically. I begged him for months to please correct this he was very dismissive and told me I look great and it will relax and open up. Finally after 3 months ha said ok I will fix it just pay 850dollars for the anastetics. Well after that suffering was done and more time off work it looked crooked still a line down my stomach still had to pry the skin open to look nice and see my belly button cuz their was none it looked ridiculous and have been extremely embarrassed for over a year. Finally at my post op 6 month visit he said ok I will do a scar revision and take off the dog ears. So I again I spread my skin apart and told him I want to look like this he said stop doing that your never going to look like that. So I decided to get 5 more opinions him and one other dr said no cant do it. But 3 other drs said they have never seen that before and I needed the whole thing done correctly. So I did and Ian so much happier.
Let me just say no one has ever followed up with me regarding my surgery. My breast reduction did not come out as I expected. After asking several times about scaring and treatment to use after surgery he informed that I didn't need anything. Now I have 2 hypertonic scars right in the middle of my chest. They run there office like a meat factor.
