Patient Testimonials

"I am very pleased with my results" *

Dear Dr. Bucky, Lisa & Team,

I am so grateful to be in your care. During the last 15 months you have shown me what high standards, combined with exceptional patient care looks like!

I am very pleased with my results and equally impressed by your level of responsiveness. You have both my appreciation and my trust.

Wishing you a wonderful year ahead…one that is truly rewarding

Most gratefully yours,

"Everyone in your office goes above and beyond" *

Dr. Bucky

I am very grateful for your expertise in repairing my breast reconstruction. Before my first appointment with you I was beginning to give up and accept my reconstruction wasn’t meant to be. A friend recommended that I see you and my first visit I knew I was at the right place. Everyone in your office goes above and beyond to ease your worries and make you feel like a ‘friend’ not another patient. Your kindness and compassion meant the world to me. My journey took time and patience but the outcome was worth every minute. Once again I can’t thank you enough. Your are the best.


"You're the best doctor." *

Dear Dr. Bucky & Lisa
Thank you so much for sewing up my head. It looks as good as new. I appreciate that you stayed late to stitch me up. I feel much better now. You’re the best doctor.

"I’m writing to you to share a wonderful experience I had." *

Dear Dr. Bucky,

I’m writing to you to share a wonderful experience I had with one of your aestheticians, Joanna Pinkerton. I recently had a full face Erbium Laser treatment performed by Joanna in your Washington Square office. During my consultation in your Ardmore office, Joanna explained the procedure in detail, including the post-operative period and what my immediate discomfort level would be. We also discussed realistic expectations and alternative treatments to meet my goals. Joanna – and all of your staff, for that matter- made me feel very comfortable during the whole process. They are all so down-to-earth and it’s obvious that their goal is for each patient to leave your office as a happy, well-informed patient that is confident that their procedure will be performed by an experienced professional using the latest technology. I felt all of that as I left my consultation, but the best feeling I had during this whole process was when Joanna contacted me the afternoon after my procedure “just to check on me and see how I was feeling.” Even though I was perfectly fine, she contacted me EVERY day, even on the weekend, just to see how I was doing…who does that anymore?! I am very pleased with the outcome and plan to have Joanna recommend a skin care regime on my next post-op visit in Ardmore. I know she’s the expert! I love going to the Ardmore office because I have such a great time and I ALWAYS leave there looking younger than when I arrive – thanks also to Lisa and her magic with injectibles! She gave me cheeks that make me look 10 years younger…she is amazing!

You are very blessed to have such caring professionals working with you. I shall continue to recommend you and your staff to everyone.


"Thanks for treating me like I was your only patient" *

Dear Dr. Bucky,

I don’t know how to begin to thank you for all you have done for me. You took on my case long distance and gave me the gift of being able to look in the mirror without cringing. I feel normal again after so many years and can go to the gym without being overwhelmed with being self-conscious.

Thanks for treating me like I was your only patient – talking with me on the phone and responding to my emails personally. You are an amazing doctor but even more an amazing man that blesses many. I was having second thoughts about going through with the surgery because this was my 10th one. However, when I found out you did not charge me for any of your work I felt like it was confirmation for me to go ahead as planned. Joe and I were overwhelmed! Your staff is great and so accommodating coming in from out of town.

Bless you for your kindness.

"I am truly blessed that a friend recommended me to your office" *

Dr. Bucky & Staff,

Words can’t express the gratitude I feel towards you and your staff. I am truly blessed that a friend recommended me to your office. Not only are you a brilliant doctor with exceptional ability, your compassion and generosity goes above & beyond.

Your staff is awesome. This professionalism & knowledge is exceptional. Lisa & Valerie kept me informed and helped put me at ease during each procedure. Sheri & Lori were always so pleasant, patient & accommodating. I appreciated the eagerness of your staff to answer questions & concerns and the quick returned phone calls. A special thanks to you for returning a phone call on a Saturday.

Thanks to you, the outcome of my reconstruction surpasses my expectations. Thanks for making me feel whole again. I recommend you to family & friends with total confidence.

"Dr. Bucky doesn’t treat you like a patient: he treats you like a person" *

A Woman has many attributes…. One of them is her breasts. I had a bi-lateral mastectomy due to cancer. My breast surgeon recommended Dr. Louis Bucky. Oh my God he is fabulous (which is an understatement). He did my reconstructive surgery and my breast what can I say they look AWESOME! I Love them! People that I talk to say: “I would never have known that you had reconstructive surgery “the girls” look great. I owe all of this to Dr. Bucky. He is sweet and gentle to talk to; he understands your fears and handles them with compassion. Dr. Bucky doesn’t treat you like a patient he treats you like a person.

Dr. Bucky is the Cream De Le Cream!!! He gave me my attributes back!! 😉

"...It was the best decision I could have made" *

I was referred by a friend to Dr. Bucky for breast augmentation – it was the best decision I could have made. Dr. Bucky was amazing – extremely thorough with a wonderful bedside manner. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with such an important decision. I have since recommended a friend to his office!

Thank you Dr. Bucky!

"You have changed my life" *

Dear Dr. Bucky—
I just wanted to write you a short thank you. It has been a year since my corrective surgery. I remember after the surgery you told me that I had one of the worst capsules you had ever seen. I had been living with that capsule for three years. I now have no hardness + especially no pain. I can’t thank you enough. You have changed my life – truly you have. Thank you so much.

Dear Dr. Bucky—
Michele Petrillo has been so helpful and patient in helping me with an unfortunate result from fillers.

Her cautious approach and expertise has been invaluable.

"Your team was the most welcoming" *

Dear Dr. Bucky, Val, Lori & team—

I told Dr. Bucky this already, but I want you all to know how incredible your office is. Of all the practices I looked into, your team was the most welcoming, kindest and most professional. Spending years working for Stephen Start has made me a perfectionist for customer service, so I just wanted to share.

Dear Dr. Bucky, Lori, Valerie, Kim + Staff-

Please accept my appreciation + gratitude (aside from my $!) for your expertise, competence, patience + respectful consideration you have all demonstrated throughout my surgical procedure. Thank you for assuaging my pre-op jitters with patience + accurate information. Thank you Valerie + Kimmy for your expert medical support (not to mention make-up tips!) and answering all my questions with kindness + consideration. And of course thank you Dr. Bucky for your combined aesthetic sense and surgical expertise. I am so happy with the results. I still look like me, only a little brighter + and a bit more youthful. In fact, I feel quite pretty again, which, justified or not, is quite a morale booster. Please also send my regards and appreciation to Zoe (and her new baby, Harrison) for her gentle support during my overnight stay at the Ritz. Please feel free to use any of my comments in whatever way you would like + and I am happy to speak with other potential patients about my experience.

Dear Dr. Bucky,

I just wanted to thank you for the fabulous treatment you gave David this month. First, you fit us into your consultation schedule so quickly. Second, you were so flexible about doing the surgery so quickly. Third, you did an amazing job—he’s so pleased. It fits his face and he feels good about it. And fourth, everyone on your staff, in both offices, was competent and friendly and responsive.
Truly, you are a wonderful surgeon, and we all appreciate your skills and demeanor.

"I now recognize myself!" *

Dear Dr. Bucky,

Just a note to tell you how delighted I am with the outcome of your procedures to restore my eyelids. When I first came to you, I was so discouraged with the results from a previous surgery. You generously donated your time and resources to restore me, I now recognize myself!

I am so grateful—thank you.

"Loving all my changes" *

Dear Dr. Bucky + Staff—

Thank you so much for all of your time and attention with me. I’m so pleased with my results.
Everyone in your office has been just wonderful to me. Thank you again.

"So Easy and Comfortable" *


I cannot thank you enough for all you have done for me. You made what felt like an overwhelming experience seem so easy and comfortable. Please know how much I appreciated your willingness to return my calls, even from your home or your day off, to answer all of my questions and concerns.

Your kindness and caring attitude made this a pleasant experience, and as a patient, that meant a lot.

"Caring, Professional, and an Expert" *

Dear Dr. Bucky,

I just want to take a moment and thank you for taking care of me. From my first consultation, I knew I had found the perfect place. I was treated with sincerity, respect, and concern from everyone in your office. You seem very caring, professional, and an expert at what you do. You have made me feel comfortable about my choice. Thanks again.

"Offered an Unforeseen Generosity" *

Dr. Bucky,

I don’t know if you will ever really understand the gratitude and respect I have for you. In a world that is so centered around money, you stepped up and offered an unforeseen generosity. You are an amazing Dr. and better yet, an extraordinary man! I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

"Bringing Back the "Old" Me" *

Dear Doctor Bucky,

I just want to say “Thank-you” for all your kindness in helping me make this all happen financially, and bringing back the “old” me. I can already see your wonderful “art” in my face. Many have told me that you are a very special doctor with a lot of bedside manners.

I guess you already knew that I’ve been to six doctors, and never felt the comfort and warmth that you have shown.

We are all born with special gifts and you were born with two: a GREAT SURGEON with a GREAT HEART.

Thank you again.
