Patient Testimonials

We would like to share some of the kind thank-you notes and letters we have received from our patients through the years.


Dr. Pastorek,

I just wanted to take the time to let you know how awesome I feel! You really have changed my life. My family keeps telling me how I still look like me, just new and improved. You did a great job of getting me through my surgery and needle phobia, which I honestly never thought I’d get through. Thank you so much for everything. You are the absolute best!


Dear Janice,

I want to thank you for the amazing treatment and the care of my skin. I have received a lot of compliments. I am now part of your PR team on the streets of NYC. My skin feels & looks fabulous.

Thanks to you and your fantastic team for making me feel so comfortable during each treatment. You all are a treasure. Keep sharing your talent and charisma with your patients and the world.


Dear Dr. Norman Pastorek,

Thank you so much for the extraordinary care and kindness you showed me last week.  You have no idea how much that means to me.  I could not have been in better hands – I know this.  I hope to someday repay your kindness.  Thank you so much again.


Dr Pastorek,

Thank you for your time sir.  It was a sincere pleasure to shadow you in the OR.  You Truly are a KING in Plastic Surgery and I admire and respect your work ethic, humility, and skill set so much.  I look forward to seeing you again, sir.

Respectfully,
Dr D. D.


Dear Dr. Pastorek,

I just wanted to say thank you for helping me feel better about myself. I couldn’t be happier with my results and the overall experience. You made this process worry-free and actually pleasant! I am so very grateful.


Dear Dr. Pastorek,

Thank you for everything – new confidence, your time and patience, and your comforting spirit. I loved your photography and actually enjoy it on every visit – here’s one of my pictures for you! Best regards.


Dear Dr. Pastorek, Janice, Barbara, Marie and Emily,

Thank you all for making my facelift so successful and positive. It’s less than two weeks after surgery and I am thrilled with the look of my face—even under the harsh lights of most public bathrooms!

What is a frankly scary experience turned out to be “no big deal” because of your experience, the quality of your hands and the professionalism and caring that each of you manifests. All the important family members who have seen the results think I look great. It even won an enthusiastic review from my 18 year-old son—and that’s saying a lot!

I look forward to seeing you soon. You all are wonderful! Warm regards.


Dear Dr. Pastorek,

It has now been over 2 weeks since I had my surgery. The bruises under the eyes and discoloration are completely gone. The swelling is slowly going down on the nose.

My result thus far is so beautiful. It subtly enhances my look just as you said. I’m very happy with your work and have had a great many compliments from those who know. Others cannot even notice because your work was so fine and delicate. My boyfriend loves it and so do I. Thank you so much.


Dear Janice,

I cannot express how much I appreciated our visit yesterday. The skincare—though outstanding—paled compared to spending an hour with you. You are by far one of the kindest, most generous, and gentle person I will ever meet.

Your words stayed with me down to the last letter—and were truly a godsend. I did not realize how much I needed to change my approach. Yesterday I started the book; turned off cable news; listened to Vivaldi and actually applied foot cream! Most importantly, after a song and dance on the phone earlier, I extricated myself from a weekend engagement. Already I feel more in control of life and will continue along this path.

How can I thank you? Also the gifties were such an indulgence! Again, you are pretty special.


To the staff,

Thank you for your wonderful care!


Dear Dr. Pastorek,

Thank you so much for your honest opinion in consultation today. You just confirmed my decision to not do the procedure. I was questioning whether it was a good idea or not under my circumstances, but you confirmed it is not. You are amazing and a fine doctor. Thanks.


Dear Dr. Pastorek,

I’m sending you this photo because I turned 70 recently and no one has ever guessed my age—because of and thanks to you. You did my facelift in September 1997! I’ve never touched my eyes—good genes I guess.

I spend winters in Florida and when a party was given for me they thought it was my 60th.

I hope this finds you and Janice well. As the song goes, “You Make Me Feel So Young”—you’re the best!


Dear Janice and Norman,

I just wanted to thank you both for all of your support during my “uplift.” Your calls pre and post “the event” really made me feel cared for in a very special way. Other than going a little crazy from not working out I’m doing great.

Hope you’re having a wonderful summer and, again, many thanks.


Dear Janice,

I cannot thank you enough for the amazing treatment yesterday! You were beyond “thorough” and went several extra miles with everything you did—and the care with which you approached it.

And as I always tell you, the visit and fun conversation is priceless. I truly appreciate the extra time you spend with me and value all the thinking involved in putting the perfect combination of lasers!

I hope you and Norman will enjoy the enclosed. This is the healthiest collection of dark chocolate I could find—supposedly very high in antioxidants!

See you soon! P.S. The Neova is great—very soothing!


Dear Norman,

A belated thank you note for the wonderful day I spent with you in N.Y.

You are a master surgeon and we are always learning. In fact I’ve used your “double dome” stitch twice since. Thanks again.


Happy Mother’s Day to one of the most nurturing, warm-hearted women I know! Janice, when I think of you I think of Mother Earth: protecting, helping, encouraging and embracing all the people in your life. I am so lucky to be among them!


To Doctor Pastorek,

An outstanding gentleman, thank you for your honorable generosity—you’re wonderful! Very gratefully yours.


Dear Janice, Barbara, Marie and Gia,

My sincere thanks to all of you for your kindness and patience during my series of treatments. Apart from the benefits of the treatments, the real bonus was spending time with you and in such a nurturing and welcoming environment. I always left feeling better and more at peace than when I walked in! You are such special people and much appreciated by me. With much affection.


Dear Dr. Pastorek,

I have no words with which to express my admiration for you as a person, a doctor, and an artist. With your talent and heightened sense of proportions and aesthetics you have given me back my face of 1964.

I thank you, Mrs. Pastorek, your office staff and your operating team for a seamless journey to the Fountain of Youth! My best regards and heartfelt gratitude.


Dear Janice,

Just wanted to thank you again for your constant generosity. Between the face cleansing machine (which I use everyday!), the Nutri-System food, and all the extras you gave me prior to my wedding—I just can’t express enough gratitude. Thank you for being such an amazing woman who inspires me to be at my best. You deserve all the greatest things in life!


Dear Dr. Pastorek,

Thanks so much for allowing me to come visit and observe you in the OR. I did my next rhinoplasty that week endonasally and am pleased so far with the result. Thanks also for your sponsorship in the NYFPSS. I hope you won’t mind if I visit you again sometime. Kind regards.


Dr. Pastorek,

Thanks for everything! You’ve been so wonderful!
