"I have known Dr. Del Vecchio for over 50 years from the time we were both children and know him in a broader context than few outside of his immediate family do. I truly understand, knowing Dr. Del Vecchio as I do, why there would be those who would interpret some of his comments as insensitive and at times unprofessional. He has a very unusual sense of humor and can come across as short-tempered and cruel at times. But his staff is well-aware of his style and that he may at times be a bit rough on them. Dan sets high standards for himself as well as his staff and believes strongly that each staff member is highly-capable at what they do and he expects perfection, particularly when patients' health and even their lives depend upon a perfectly-functioning office. Yes, he is occasionally rough on his staff and sometimes those moments are unintentionally observed by patients. What's not observed is the apologies that come from Dr. Del Vecchio after such an event and the degree of his generosity and support of each staff member he has on a regular basis. I'm certain that he would acknowledge that he could do a better job at being more sensitive to his staff, particularly when patients are nearby. While, generally-speaking, there should be no excuse for a doctor as accomplished as Dr. Del Vecchio to speak unkindly to his staff, his primary role is to be the best plastic surgeon. I'm sure he welcomes your comments, particularly in this Yelp format, as a wake-up call to be more cognizant of how he interacts with his staff and, for that matter, anyone else he comes in contact with. I felt compelled to share my long-term friendship with Dr. Del Vecchio in an attempt to shed some light on the more sensitive side of him that one ordinarily does not observe at his office. I hope anyone who feels as "Melissa W." does and might observe the good doctor lashing-out would be comfortable enough to pull him aside and remind him to be a bit more compassionate and to re-examine his unusual sense of humor as being a bit tough. I assure you, his bark is worse than his bite and he welcomes a reminder to stay cool."
"I had a lipo BBL revision done last week, due to uneven surfaces on my stomach and no hips. I had a consultation mid August and booked my surgery 3 weeks later. Let me just say my body looks freaking amazing the lumps and unevenness on my stomach is just about gone. I know it's only been a week, but I can see the difference in my body compared to my first lipo BBL done 18 months ago in DR . Thank you DR.del velcchio."
"Had an on the phone consultation with Dr. D, So far so good, quick response and very friendly staff. From the pictures I have seen his work looks amazing! Very excited for surgery"
"Dr. D is the absolute best. I've had plastic surgery done with others and by far.Dr D is an expert in his field. I lost a tremedous amount of weight over the past 6 years and little by little I planned to have excess skin removed. I started with an arm lift with another local surgeon but was dissatisfied with the outcome. From the very moment I walked in and met Kim at the front desk, I knew this is were I wanted to be. I didn't want to be just another formerly obese patient that no matter what a surgeon did to me, he would be thinking "you look better than before". I felt 100% comfortable with Dr D He was very thorough in explaining all the pros and cons and he actually spoke in terms that were very clear, he explain the procedure and truthfully stated his concerns. TT and BL look fabulous.I can't think of a single thing I would have rather done for myself. If there were truely such a thing as "perfect" It would be Dr Del Vecchio"
"Had a breast augmentation in 2010 having been referred by a friend with amazing results. My breasts are as close to perfect as you can get with no complications. Yes he’s not a “warm & cozy” personality, but his work is top shelf. I’m very surprised at some of the reviews; hoping people can look at his work as a surgeon objectively vs. searching for a doctor that will give good lip service. He’s done pretty amazing work on some train wreck bodies. Would trust him again for more work."
