I am scheduled for surgery at the end of the month but my experience so far has been wonderful. Dr. G is a wonderful doctor and seems very knowledgeable about the procedures that I want to do. One of the staff member, KerryAnn is wonderful also. She makes me feel at ease. I hope my surgery goes as well as my consultation did. More

Breast augmentation - Highly knowledgeable, very dedicated to his job, excellent bedside manners, excellent follow up after surgery, and last but not least awesome results!!! He is the only doctor that I went to because he was at the top of my list, and he exceeded my expectations! Dr. Gutowski took his time to answer every single question that I had. At the end of my very first appointment with him I book my surgery. Also, Erin, his nurse, has a very positive attitude, very kind, and is full of energy. Awesome team!I'm very happy that I chose Dr. Gutowski to perform surgery on me. He's definitely one of a kind and he totally knows what he does! I highly recommend Dr. Gutowski! He's a gem in this field! More

To summarize, I recently had reconstructive breast augmentation to remove capsular contracture and replace a ruptured implant (from another surgeon 10 years ago). I did extensive research on plastic surgeons in the Chicagoland area and chose 6 doctors for consultation. It was easy to make my final decision to have Dr. Gutowski perform surgery on me. He educated me on all my options and made me feel like I was not just another case but a very important patient. The office staff and surgery team is incredible! Polite, responsive, accommodating, personable and very caring. It really makes a difference. It has been 2 months post op and I am very pleased with my results. Dr. Gutowski and his team has been 100% there to look out for my best interest and have gone out of their way numerous times to accommodate me. On one occasion, Dr. Gutowski and his Coordinator, Wendy came to the office on a day off to see me since I had no driver to take me there the prior day. I also want to mention that I have NEVER had to wait more than 5 mins past my appointment. This was every single visit from consultation to all follow-ups. Not something you experience at most plastic surgeon offices, let alone any Doctor office. The office is busy, Dr. Gutowski is busy. But they make sure you don't feel that. I remember when I was researching doctors, I just wanted someone who did their homework to tell me which doctor to go with. So I (who never writes reviews) am finally doing my part to say that I would highly recommend Dr Gutowski for plastic surgery- breast augmentation in particular. I have not a single negative thing to say about my experience. More

We felt that we were in good hands from the start. My breast cancer surgeon referred me to Doctor Gutowski's practice for reconstructive surgery. His staff made sure I was seen promptly and he called me the same day to start coordinating my care. Through the entire process, his team made me feel cared for. The result was nature and I feel whole again. More

Review from D.K.  |  Source: Vitals  |  Jul 27, 2010

My eyes looked so tired and sad (I am only 36 years old). I saw 3 plastic surgeons to get my options. Only Dr. Gutowski gave me the options of having the procedure in a hospital or in his office procedure suite. He also pointed out that it was not just a cosmetic problem but that my tired eyelids were caused by stretched connective tissue that could be fixed and covered by my insurance. I decide to have the procedure in the hospital and my HMO paid for the eyelid part while I paid for the brow-lift. He did it with me sedated but I only remember him asking me to open and close my eyes. I went home the same day and 5 days later was back to work with some makeup to cover up the bruises. By two weeks I looked years younger and my eyes didn't make me look tired. I had to take a few days off work but it was a reasonable trade-off. More

I saw 3 other plastic surgeons for my breast surgery. Dr. Gutowski was the only one who took teh time to make me feel comfortable and he explained all the options to me and later called my husband to review with him also. After the operation, he and his partner took great care of me in the hospital. It has been over 6 months now and I just am so happy with how things turned out. His nurse was always available to answer my many questions. More

Dr Gutowski was recommended by my personal doctor for breast reconstruction. After I had radiation, my left breast was deformed. He and his partner made me a new breast from my tummy and a few months later he did a breast lift on my right side to match! I feel myself again - would recommend. More
