Dear Dr. Hidalgo,

I wanted to take a moment to thank you. Your skill, quiet listening nature, and understanding are remarkable. It’s difficult to put into words, but you’ve turned my defeated demeanor upside down.

Additionally, I’d like to thank your staff. Everyone went well beyond efficiency and saying the right thing. They were so very smart, caring, and enjoyable.

I feel incredibly blessed and grateful.

Thank you

Dear Dr. Hidalgo,

It has been just about ten months since you operated on my face, and I am delighted, absolutely delighted with the results. My face is younger, brighter, and more authentic then it has been for many years, perhaps two decades.

This, of course, is a result of your careful conscientious, and very skilled work. You saw at our first meeting, how to help my face move more in line with who I am, and then your terrific team acted on this vision. I am the grateful, and abundantly joyful beneficiary of that effort.

When we saw each other after the surgery, I said you had given me other gifts as well. But these are not so visible, they are the result of what I learned going through the experience. For all you did, I am thankful.

All the best,

Dear Dr. Hidalgo,

Just as I was about to give up I met you. A knight with a shining scalpel.

With quiet confidence, utmost professionalism, disarming smile and without too many words you gained my absolute trust. It turned to be one of the better decisions of my life. Thank you. With great affection.

Yours truly,

Dear Dr. Hidalgo,

Three years later, I wish to let you know that not a day goes by that I do not look into the mirror and feel grateful that I had my face done, and that I chose you to do it.

Thank you so much

Dear Dr. Hidalgo,

When I saw the “candid” shots from my daughter’s wedding was when I set up an appointment with you!

I can simply say that now I feel as beautiful on the outside as I am on the inside.

Thank you so much for bestowing your wonderful talent on me. I am so happy to be one of you patients.

Respectfully,
-PJ

Re: Surgery, Nov. 12'99
Dear Dr. Hidalgo,

You are a genius! I am thrilled with my face, eye, neck and lips!!! Friday, December 24th was six weeks and almost to the day “everything” seemed to really look “normal” and the swelling almost gone. What a Christmas present I have received!

I am in Aspen for the holidays and I have been out and about and friends say, “Have you changed your hair style?” “Have you lost weight?” I just say...“Yes!” I will not hide the fact that I've had surgery and, if asked, I will “announce” your name to the world! I am so very pleased….this I just what I wanted, to simply look, as you said, “fresh” and I certainly do!

One of these days I'll send you a copy of a journal I kept of the first month after surgery when I was wondering if I was going to be permanently weird–looking?!?

I hope to get to NY in February and set an appointment so you can see “your” results!!!

Ever so many thanks. I am truly pleased!

Best Regards for the year 2000!

Dear Dr. Hidalgo,

I’ve been meaning to write for some time now. I wanted you to know how happy I am with my facelift. I had it done a year ago this past Oct. and I have been very, very happy.

It made a big difference in my life and how I feel about myself. Now when I look in the mirror I don’t hate what I see. I can’t thank you enough. You did a great job.

It’s so natural looking that no one knows I had it. They just think I look great.

Hope you have a happy and healthy new year!

Dr. Hidalgo,

It has been 10 days since my facelift and eye lift. I feel as if I am a new person all over again! Most scars are gone. I feel no pain and when I look at myself in the mirror I very much like what I see!!

Thank you so much for a job well done.

Best regards,

Good Morning,

Yes, you can put my pictures on your website as we discussed.

I never told anyone that I was getting my procedure done in June. I escaped down the beach for the summer. Since I have been back I have been getting so many comments:

What looks different? You look so rested and happy these days. Wow! You look so young. What kind of makeup are you using? The list goes on. You did and amazing job to make me look so natural without giving me that Joan Rivers look.

I can’t thank you enough. You are an amazing doctor and person with incredible talent.

All the Best,
EA

Dear Dr. Hidalgo and his wonderful staff,

I want to thank you so very much for doing a fabulous job on my eyes! I feel so much better and have so much more confidence.

I must let you know that every inch of this process was so organized and thorough. Your staff did a beautiful job of explaining everything that was going to occur and were there for any questions or concerns that I had.

I thank you all so very much for a wonderful experience.

Maybe I’ll be back in a few more years for a little more “work.”

Thanks a million!

Truly,

Dear Dr. Hidalgo,

I can't thank you enough for the wonderful care you and your whole staff provided to me. My husband and I went for a total of 4 consults. After each we privately wrote our thoughts down and shared them at the end. You were hands down the winner. It goes without saying I love the job (artwork) done on my upper bleph. I received the best compliment I could hope for on the first day back at my gym. I checked in at the desk and the woman literally asked me if I was on vacation! "You just look so refreshed - so good."

Thank You, Thank You

Dear Doctor Hidalgo,

You performed my face lift on Feb. 5th or 6th, 2012 and I want you to know that I wake up every morning with a smile on my face, gratitude, and a sense of well-being, thanks to you. I am so happy with the results. You are not only an excellent surgeon but also a mensch (as my mom would say, me too).

Thank you for being you.

Dear Dr. Hidalgo,

I am writing to thank you for the wonderful job you did on my face lift surgery. I could not be happier! Your professionalism, your skill and your demeanor made me comfortable with my decision to have the surgery. I have to say my children were very skeptical of the decision and said "mom this is not who you are" and often pointed out scary older women who went down a similar path. They now brag about the new old mom!

Thanks again.
Sincerely,
N.H.

I simply wanted to write a short note to thank you not only for your services, but for the manner in which you provided them.

I treasure them and would like to tell you that I feel very honored to have met you. I will always think of you with a warm smile on my face because that is the feeling that people like you evoke in me. Thank you for being you, Dr. Hidalgo!

I feel great and better than ever!

Thank you for giving me the nose I always wanted, now everyone “nose” how pretty I am.

You were right about everything- what to expect, how to feel and just how perfect it'd really be. I admire you!

Thanks again,

Breast Surgery

Dear Dr. Hidalgo and staff,

Thank you so much for the beautiful breast augmentation. My new breasts are gorgeous and, after having them for a year, I couldn’t be happier. I finally feel good about my body and have so much more confidence. They’re so natural looking. People are shocked when they find out they’re implants (if they ever find out!) From start to finish my experience with your office was fantastic. I always felt comfortable, everyone was delightful, and my recovery was quick and easy. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience that has truly changed my life for the better. I would (and have) recommended you to anyone looking for the best in tastefully-done plastic surgery. Thanks again!

Best,

Dear Dr. Hidalgo,

I have parked myself at this table several times and with a mind swarming with thoughts, I remained unable to write until now. I realize that it was because I am overflowing with gratitude, awe, and respect for you and your craft.

My discomfort with the physical size of my chest has literally tormented me for 23 years. I have so desperately wanted to follow through with a reduction on several occasions and lost courage. Fortunately, once meeting you and having the opportunity to communicate with your staff (they are wonderful) I regained a heightened determination to follow through with the procedure. You have created a beautiful practice with an astounding group of confident and intelligent staff.

You cannot imagine what you have given me. Life is, once again, new. Breathing is effortless. I can cross my arms! My body feels balanced. My mind is relieved and my heart is overflowing with joy.

You are blessed with a beautiful artistic soul and a profound medical intellect. I respect all that you do for your patients. I thank you for this gift you have given me. I thank you from the depths of my heart.

Kindly,

I just wanted to give you my heartfelt thanks for agreeing to see me and take me on as your patient. I know this isn’t typical for you and greatly appreciate it. The experience I had 3 years ago compared to my experience with you was literally like night and day. Everything about your practice; your staff, office, care and even beautiful operating room was so professional and serene. It was truly wonderful and I am just so happy with my results. Wishing you a very happy and healthy holiday.

All my best always,

Dear Dr. Hidalgo,

I wanted to take the time to thank you for everything. For years I have deliberated over whether or not to have breast augmentation. Many years ago I went for a consultation, but I didn’t feel comfortable with the doctor and didn’t pursue it again until I visited you earlier this year. From the moment I stepped into your office, I had a very positive experience. Your staff is extremely warm and welcoming. Their professionalism and kind demeanor make for the perfect office environment. As a practicing artist you sharpen your aesthetic vision on canvas. I know that you believe that your vision for art and plastic surgery are complementary, and I couldn’t agree more. I could not be happier with the results of my surgery. You are an artist in every sense of the word. Thank you for making this such a wonderful experience for me!

Sincerely,

Dear Dr. Hidalgo,

I’m truly grateful for the wonderful artwork you have given to me. You are a very talented, professional, confident and friendly person. I’m so glad to have been your patient. My new breasts not only look great and fill out my clothes better but also lifted my confidence. I recognized I had a moment of boob greed (which can be a dangerous position to be in) and very glad you gave me extra time to watch them settle in. As they dropped and fluffed they look even more amazing and look how I imagined them to be. I’m very happy with the result and size. Everyone who has seen them said “They look perfect.” I hope you will still be in this business in the next 15-20 years when it’s time for me to re-do them because I trust you and would be honored to have you perform surgery again. Your staff is wonderful and super helpful which made my experience that much better!!

Thank you again!

I want to take a moment to tell you how pleased I was with the outcome of my surgery. My breasts look so natural- no one would ever know that I’ve had breast augmentation.

Also, I want to mention to you what a professional staff you have from the ladies at the front desk to the nurses in the back. You are very fortunate to have such a top notch organization!

Liposuction

Dear Dr. Hidalgo,

Of course, you have my permission to use the photos on the website! I am happy to share with the world your brilliance as an artist and surgeon.

Not to mention your honesty and way with people are reflections of the caring individual you are. It was such a positive experience and you literally changed my life. I just never knew peace and happiness like this could exist. In the past I had always strived to take care of myself through healthy eating and working out but there was always a never-ending feeling of “no matter what I will never have the body I want.”

Today, I have that body and that is so empowering. For the first time in my life I feel as beautiful on the outside as I do on the inside and that is such a blessing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Warmest and most sincere regards,
-K
