Patient Testimonials for Dr. Baccaro

I met with Dr. Baccaro after a breast cancer diagnosis. At first, my visit was nothing more than a standard second opinion, as I had scheduled my surgery with another physician and was simply doing my due diligence by securing another opinion – until I met him. Visiting his office was a game changer for sure. After meeting with him, I had no doubt he was the physician for me. Being faced with a cancer diagnosis, having to undergo a bilateral mastectomy, months of chemo, reconstruction, and a lot of uncertainty; it was all exceptionally overwhelming for me. From the day I met him, Dr. Baccaro has treated me in a way that I feel his care for me. He’s so kind and compassionate, exceptionally bright and talented, and has carefully guided me each step of the way.
He works with a great team as well. Lisa, Brittany, and Amy are so lovely and totally committed to exceptional patient care. I’ve been a regular patient there for months due to the nature of my needs. Dr. Baccaro and his nurse, Lisa, always have thorough answers to all my questions, both pre and post op - and everything in between. Lisa is so endearing. Her sweet and charming demeanor has calmed me through the turmoil of breast cancer.
I recently underwent my reconstruction surgery with Dr. Baccaro and am so happy with my results. My mastectomy/reconstruction looks more like an augmentation, its remarkable. I highly recommend Dr. Baccaro and would absolutely 100% trust him with any procedure, especially given mine was so radical. He’s a very skilled and talented surgeon with a keen eye and is truly meticulous, taking his time for the benefit of his patients. He’s also a really kind person and it’s a rare occasion when find those attributes all together. I can’t thank him enough for everything he’s done for me. I’ll always be grateful I made my way to his office.

Just like any other profession, physicians know who the best "other physicians" are in town, so I knew that Gardner Plastic Surgery was the place I wanted to go to have my broken nose fixed. When I met with Dr. Leopoldo Baccaro during the complimentary consultation, it was very clear that he was the right person for the job. He is so personable and kind, yet professional and very detail oriented in his plan for my broken nose.
The day of the surgery I was unexpectedly super nervous . . . but they purposefully take care of one patient at a time and I had all of these amazing, professional people to myself throughout the whole experience. . . . Dr. Baccaro is very well trained, passionate about what he does, and cuts no corners. Turns out my nose was more damaged on the inside than what I thought, but that didn’t matter because I was in the hands of the best surgeon and under the care of the best team. I would never think of going anywhere else for this kind of surgery. Thank you!

Dr. Baccaro did my breast reduction in Dec 2018 and did a fabulous job. I turn 60 this year and have thought about having a reduction for 40 years! So thrilled that I went through with it because Dr. Baccaro is not only a skilled surgeon, but he’s also compassionate, patient and kind. I highly recommend him and his entire staff is wonderful also.

8 weeks ago, I had breast reduction surgery by Dr. Baccarro. He is a talented surgeon and is going to be very well known in Naples before you know it! My breasts were large, heavy, my shoulders had indents, my neck hurt, my back...etc. I'm a new person and I look fantastic! He did a fantastic job! Mild pain, short recovery. Dr. Baccarro and his staff are wonderful and so is Gardner Plastic Surgery! If you are experiencing the same discomfort as I was, or more, don't hesitate to call Dr. Baccarro's office, it will be the best decision of your life, it's truly life changing!

I have never written a review before but I looked at all reviews before I had my breast reduction surgery and they were very helpful in my decision. Dr. Baccaro was my surgeon for my breast reduction surgery and it went wonderful. Dr. Baccaro was with me every step of the way. Answering every question I had and made me feel so comfortable with my surgery. After the surgery he was there to make sure that I was feeling ok and to make sure that I knew I could call him anytime, even gave me his cell number, if I needed anything. Also, the staff at Gardner Plastic Surgery were very nice and helpful. If are thinking of getting a breast reduction I would tell you to go for it and make sure to contact Dr. Barccaro.
