To Whom It May Concern, Last January I had reconstructive surgery for a cleft pallet and hare lip birth defect. I would like to bring to your attention the wonderful work and professionalism of my surgeon Dr. Stuart Bentkover. Bentkover, his wife Nancy (his nurse) and his entire staff are always pleasant and professional. I was impressed by the research Dr. Bentkover did on my previous surgeries and how he took the time to explain his plan of what he would do before the surgery and after the surgery; he showed me his surgical sketches of the work he did.
When researching a surgeon, I when to the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ABFPRS) website because I know that all of their surgeons have met rigorous examination and certification. Something that was very important to me was the specialization in reconstructive surgery. I was also impressed by the fact that others in the medical profession time and time again confirmed that he is one of the best in his field by their unprompted praise. These were nurses that have worked with him in the operating room and others who have had gone to Dr. Bentkover for surgery themselves.
I would highly recommend Dr. Bentkover and I am very pleased that Blue Cross and Blue Shield FEP have such highly qualified doctors in their plan.
