Breast Reconstruction Testimonials

I first walked into Dr. Kolker' s office just over 1 year ago after being diagnosed with a BRCA2 mutation to discuss the possibility of having a prophylactic bilateral mastectomy. As a 28 year old woman this was the biggest decision that I had ever been faced with and to say the least, I was overwhelmed with what lay ahead. When I first walked into Dr. Kolker' s office I was greeted by a friendly receptionist and was immediately calmed by the serenity and beauty of the office environment. I did not wait long before being taken back into a room and was quickly greeted by Dr. Kolker and his nurse. Dr. Kolker immediately made me feel at ease by taking the time to answer each and every one of my questions. I did not feel rushed through the appointment AT ALL. Suffice it to say, I chose to move forward with the procedure and chose Dr. Kolker as my plastic surgeon. Over the past year both Dr. Kolker and his entire team have EXCEEDED my expectations on every level imaginable. Everyone in his office from the receptionist to the nurses to his coordinator, Jillian, has been professional, flexible and extremely supportive. Dr. Kolker was available and willing to answer questions at any time of the day (or night)! I have never in my life met a doctor that is so reachable. In regards to my results, I am thrilled and he is truly an artist. Dr. Kolker has changed my life forever and words cannot describe how grateful I am to have found and chose him as my surgeon. I would recommend Dr. Kolker to anyone who is considering either breast reconstruction or any other surgery. In my eyes, he is an absolute saint! A.W. / NEW YORK

What can I say to fully show how grateful I am to Dr. Kolker and his amazing crew, besides a thank you, thank you, thank you! I was dealing with a very scary obstacle in my life and had to make some extreme decisions that would ultimately change my life as I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Dr. Kolker and all the girls made this one of the most comfortable, heartfelt, and dare I even say easy experiences and trust me, nothing that I've been through has been easy. Everything from their warm welcomes, to chatting with me day in and day out about my worries and concerns (which I had many) and actually looking me in the eye when doing so. That means a lot as a patient. Now, on to Dr. Kolker's work and let's put it this way. He is a a miracle worker. I sometimes even say an artist because really, what he does is more than just plastic surgery, it's truly art. He held my hand through every step of the process, made me feel that I was cared for (which MANY doctors do not even get close to doing in their lifetime), went through every process, explained each procedure, how it works, how I'd feel and so on. He made me realize that everything would be ok, and that I would be ok. You have no idea how much that means to someone battling health issues. I actually look forward to my visits; to see the girls friendly faces and smiles and to hear from Dr. Kolker that I'm heading in the right path and I've made it through the worst. I can keep going, but I'll stop right here. I've grown to truly care for these people and they saved my life and I'll never forget that. J.B. / NEW YORK

I have been a patient of Dr. Kolker's for over a year now. I was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer at 40 years old and was told I needed a mastectomy. I interviewed several breast surgeons and plastic surgeons and decided on the team of Dr. Port at Mt. Sinai as my breast surgeon and Dr. Kolker as my plastic surgeon I am so happy and grateful to them both. From the very beginning (when I was depressed and an emotional mess), Dr. Kolker took the time to explain the different surgical options open to me and outcomes I could expect. I asked him if I'm not happy with something will you work with me to make me happy? I liked his response, I'm a perfectionist and my goal is to make you look good. I'm single and while being cancer-free was the main goal, so is looking good and regaining my confidence! I urge other women to ask plastic surgeons this same question before they sign on the dotted line. You would be surprised what some say or get a sense of their attitude. Before I chose Dr. Kolker, I asked to talk to another breast cancer patient of his and he arranged it. Meeting this woman, hearing her incredible story, seeing how terrific she looked and how she raved about Dr. Kolker sealed the deal for me! I chose to go with silicone breast implants and while I have a couple of very minor tweaks before I am 100% finished I look absolutely fantastic and have not had any complications. I feel incredibly lucky. I will never forget the many kindnesses I have received from Dr. Kolker and his staff over the past year. During my mastectomy and first phase of reconstruction Dr. Kolker stopped by to see me on a Friday evening holiday in the hospital just to check on me and reassure me that I was doing just fine. He was quick to respond to text messages and phone calls in the following days and months when I was worried or just anxious. His staff have become like family (Jillian, Jackie and Mary) and are also helpful about any questions I may have, working with my insurance and are quick to soothe the many anxieties that go with this process and disease. I highly recommend Dr. Kolker and his team and would be happy to talk to other breast cancer patients that are just starting this process, just ask Dr. Kolker for T.K.s information.T.K. / NEW YORK

I became a patient of Dr. Kolker's 4 years ago when I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 28. I chose to work with Dr. Kolker based on his caring bedside manner and attention to detail. My initial consult was over 2 hours and he and his staff answered all of the questions I had. I had a bilateral mastectomy with full reconstruction. I could not be more pleased with the results. Dr. Kolker & his office staff were so kind & generous to me throughout my recovery process. I would recommend Dr. Kolker to anyone who is considering plastic surgery either for reconstruction or by choice.C.P. / NEW YORK

I met with Dr. Kolker for the first time just days following the news that I had breast cancer. I knew from our initial consultation that I was about to work with someone who demonstrates a level of compassion you only hope to have as a part of your team of doctors. However, what I learned of Dr. Kolker then was only a prelude to what I would learn throughout the time I was under his care. Dr. Kolker is by far the most compassionate doctor I have ever worked with. Not only has he spent extensive time with me making sure that I fully understand everything I need to know about breast reconstruction and what to expect, but he always took the time to comfort and reassure me in the most challenging days of my life. The results of my surgery lead me to believe he is a genius. His work is exceptional. I couldn't be happier with how real my breasts look and feel, and how proportionately they fit my body. From that very first consultation, Dr. Kolker relieved me of any fears I had regarding my surgery, the cosmetic results and the potential negative occurrences. I am so grateful for him and his wonderful, talented and professional staff.C.G. / NEW YORK

All I have to say is that Dr. Kolker is one of the most amazing people that ever entered my life! When I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, I was referred to Dr. Kolker through my breast surgeon, for which I am forever grateful.

Dr. Kolker is the most kind and caring man I have ever met. He took away so much of my fear and made me excited about my reconstruction. His meticulous reconstructive "art" is just amazing. He is so in tune to detail. His staff is like family to me. You get the whole package here! From the moment you step foot into his beautiful, inviting office and up until your last procedure and follow up, you will be handled with the utmost care. Dr. Kolker is TOP NOTCH in the medical field and he "does it all" with a gentle touch. Dr. Kolker gave me my self esteem back. He took the lowest part of my life and turned it into an amazing new beautiful beginning. Because his work is so excellent, people cannot even believe that I have a reconstructed breast! Thank you Dr. Kolker for ALL you do, you make my heart smile!A.P. / NEW JERSEY

I was introduced to Dr. Kolker through my breast surgeon when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Was advised to have a mastectomy and I could have reconstructive surgery at the same time...When I met Dr. Kolker I was scared to death but Dr. Kolker was so comforting, kind and extremely informative as to the various options that were available to me.

He not only gave me the strength to take this journey but he also helped to comfort my husband. Dr. Kolker was available to me and my husband 24/7! He truly is an artist and he not only rebuilt my body but my self-esteem and confidence! He also was very accurate as to how I would feel during my healing process...I have a secret "love affair" with him. Now, I'm looking forward to additional surgery...but obviously for aesthetic reasons!C.O. / NEW YORK

Several years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Once I had lived through the pain and misery of cancer surgery, chemo, and radiation - breast reconstruction surgery was the last thing I wanted to think about. But one day, my radiation doctor heartily recommended Dr. Adam Kolker to me as THE only doctor to fix the mess that was now my chest!!

Believe me, I was depressed and in no mood for any further surgery! After much back and forth about it, I did make an appointment to "grill" the doctor as I had great doubts about having any surgery - elective or otherwise, ever again... Happily, that all changed the moment I met with Dr Kolker... I really liked him right away... I was super impressed with his knowledge, his calm, and I was very taken with the way he addressed my particular (breast cancer) problem. He spent a lot of time explaining things to me regarding the surgery options both pro and con - I was still a wreck and a very nervous and demanding patient before and throughout the surgery process. But the doctor along with his terrific, supportive and empathetic staff helped turn my previous nightmare into an amazing doctor / patient experience. Now - I would never consider using another doctor.J.B. / NEW YORK
