Plastic Surgery Patient Review 60
Dear Dr. Godek,
I’m writing this letter to tell you how satisfied I am with the results of my breast augmentation and face lift. I’m originally from New York and moved to New Jersey only 3 years ago. Being from a big city I knew I had to go to the city to find the best plastic surgeon for my surgeries until a friend of mine told me about you. I searched the whole state of New Jersey before going to New York hoping that I could find a highly skilled, qualified plastic surgeon.
When you’re a nurse/massage therapist you really understand the human body and how it functions. When I interviewed you and ask questions you not only answered my questions but you understood my objectives. What I wanted removed and what I wanted added. Then you took the time to get to know my personality, lifestyle and my energy level. What were some of my goals for the future you were focused on each descriptive word I used to describe how I wanted to look. When you are going to place your face and body with a total stranger you need an extraordinary plastic surgeon, top in his field, holds one of the highest reputations in the state of New Jersey. But, most of all you are known for your artistic abilities which are the ability to change someone’s life which you have done for me.
This surgery is like a drawing that I drew of how I wanted my breast and face to look like come to life. I had children late in life due to my career so, I have fairly young children and they now have a younger cooler mom thanks to you. I feel energized and ready to do sports, travel with my family and live life to its fullest. My husband is enjoying his new younger looking wife also.
Thank lou, Dr. Godek for taking 15 years or more off my face and body. The surgery has changed my mental status, future goals, career; it has also bought me closer to my family.
Plastic Surgery Patient Review 59

Plastic Surgery Patient Review 58
Congratulations on being voted “Best of the Best” in Plastic Surgery.. I have no doubt you will win this year after year!!
Thank you Dr. G for all you and your staff have done for me. After having to make a very difficult decision you helped make the right choice seem bearable . Your work though this whole process has been perfection as was your guidance. At the beginning of my reconstructive process I never thought I could have such a completely natural result!!
Thank you for being the caring doctor that you are!!
Plastic Surgery Patient Review 57
I am writing this note to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude for the recent liposuction procedure you performed on me. It is one week later — and I already see a significant change In myself and how my clothes look! Besides looking great — I feel terrific. And It seems I got an added benefit — since getting rid of the stomach pooch, the back ache I’ve had forever seems to have been alleviated! Mostly, the world looks and feels different. I know It’s all about attitude and I have always been an upbeat person to begin with, but this has just given me a whole new lease on life….
You, your office staff, are wonderful, but special thanks needs to be given to your surgical nurses who are truly outstanding a very special thank you to Pat Wyckoff). I can’t say I’ve ever experienced such compassion, comfort and care as I did by the surgical staff. My friend who came with me had her eyes end nose done In NY from a doctor on Park Avenue and said she was highly impressed by everyone and everything and it was too bad she didn’t know about you before traipsing off to New York. And least I forget the anesthesiologist who took the time and effort to explain everything to my total satisfaction.
What was even more astounding is that I was virtually pain free! I kept waiting for the pain to come, but It never did! For me, I floated out of the surgi-center and am still floating with renewed enthusiasm and an astounding amount of energy!
In the end, the majority of my thanks belong to you for creating the Personal Enhancement Center (PEC) and surgi-center and staffing it with people like yourself — those that want to help others and truly care. I know for sure that you will definitely handle whatever needs fixing In my future and I’m telling all my friends about you!

I just wanted to send a note of thanks to you. You gave a lot of your time to me and you didn’t even know me. You were very caring & compassionate for which I am truly grateful.

I wish you the best in all of your endeavors and with a heart like yours I know you’ll be truly blessed. Have a great summer with your family and I will see you in Aug. for my re-check!!!

God blessed you with a gentle smile it warms the heart to see, He blessed you with tender hands that comfort easily, and He blessed you with a gift that’s just as precious as it’s rare — a gift for being kind, for helping out… for taking care.
Thank you for being there for me as my doctor but also taking me under your wing as a friend! Without you caring for me I would not be here today! Thank you! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Plastic Surgery Patient Review 38
It’s easy to say thank you, but it’s harder to convey the deep and heartfelt gratitude I really feel today – but maybe, having said this much, by now I’ve let you know your thoughtfulness means more to me than words will ever show.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Plastic Surgery Patient Review 34
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate everything you’ve done for me. It really means a lot to me that you made surgery affordable for me the second time around – even though you didn’t have to do that. I consider myself very lucky. Thank you for making both surgeries go so smoothly, and for bringing that feeling of relief when I see you. In a situatioin where I should’ve been nervous I felt 100% comfortable. I look great & I feel great and I owe it all to you! I’m grateful to have found such a wonderful doctor! Thank you – thank you- thank you! XO!
Plastic Surgery Patient Review 33
I just wanted to thank you for being so sympathetic when I came into your office on Monday and started crying.
Although, I felt a little embarrassed for crying like that. But I am feeling better and the pain medication helps.
I am starting to see my shape and just want to let you know that you are amazing at what you do. The pain is worth the final outcome. You are a genius. Also, thank you for letting me work out a payment plan. So, I just wanted to drop you this note to say a huge thank you for being such a wonderful, caring doctor. Your staff is also amazing. And I recommend you to everyone!
Thanks for the beautiful work you did on me.
Your the best!
Plastic Surgery Patient Review 32
Well, we have experienced 3 hurricanes that directly hit Palm Bay since our arrival — now that was an experience!
A compliment for you from a surgeon I had to see here. He was amazed at what you did for me. He said he never saw such an excellent reconstruction. Suggested I should be a “poster person” for the procedure. (Pat on the back for you!)
Hope this finds everyone in good health. Believe it or not, I miss N.J. and my visits with all of you.
May all the joy in the season brings be your now and in the coming year.

I DID IT!!!
On June 19th, I completed the Wyckoff-Franklin Lakes Triathlon with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s “Team in Training” in 3hrs. 12 mins.
I can’t thank you enough for your support, encouragement and confidence. I acheived this as a personal goal not only for myself but for the millions of people battling blood cancers.
While riding the race course, a spectator yelled out to me “Because of you, my mother is alive.” That made everything worthwhile for me.
Because of your generosity I was the top fund raiser in the state of New Jersey!!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU

I just wanted to say Thank you! I am so happy I chose you and your office. And this is before I even get to see the results. The way you handled the situation and me I can’t thank you enough. It was so stressful and you handled my stress with concern and it made it bearable. Your personality matches your expertise. Thank you thank you!
Plastic Surgery Patient Review 17
Dear Dr. Godek,
When I first contemplated the idea of a tummy tuck I was struck with the big question of where to go. My first surgeon’s experience turned out to be a very unprofessional and poorly organized office. I felt as though the doctor never even looked at who I was and why I was there, just another $$. I’m grateful that my surgery was called off. The complication of my blood disorder actually made my search out your office.
My first exposure to your office was the ad in the Asbury Park Press; I read it thoroughly and was highly impressed with the professionalism and experience that your practice was offering. After speaking with an acquaintance at the gym she highly recommended your services.
My first visit to your office was beyond my expectations. I was ushered into the examining room within minutes of filling out my paper work, compared to over a 90 minute wait in the previous doctor’s office. Your nursing staff was exceptional; knowledgeable, courteous and very kind and friendly. As you sat with me and asked me questions I was struck with your sincere desire to know who I was as a person and the reason why I desired a tummy tuck. When I told you of my blood disorder it didn’t faze you a bit, it was something that doable. I was relieved and grateful for your confidence. When I told you that I was looking to combine this surgery with my bladder reconstruction and partial hysterectomy you had no problem with the idea of working with another surgeon. You both were a terrific team together!!
As the day approached for surgery Laura was so helpful in helping me schedule the surgery before my work schedule took off, her kindness and positive attitude was a joy to work with. On my visit to the surgery center for my markings I was once again impressed and grateful for your nursing staff and their kindness. Karen Schiffer was a doll and very very professional in her skills. As my husband and I drove off to the hospital in Neptune, we were both confident that God had brought us to your practice. We felt that we were in very capable and dedicated hands. Even through the delays at the hospital you never lost your professionalism and your kind and caring ways. I was most grateful for the level head and calm manner.
When I woke up from surgery and saw the results, I was ecstatic, and thrilled to see a flat tummy after all these years, come to think of it; I never had a flat tummy!!!
As my recovery continued I kept admiring the work and how perfect it was, this was not my first plastic surgery. Over 22 years ago I had a breast reduction and my experience as not as good. My husband is thrilled with the results’ he can’t believe how beautiful the scar looks, but most of all he sees the joy in my face and how I perceive myself.
I can’t wait until the summer so I can wear that two piece bathing suit that I’ve been only willing to wear in the comfort of my back yard. I am a diligent exercise and the time off from the gym was tough at times, but the end result has been worth it. As my gym routine continues, I’m grateful for the “flat tummy” and can’t wait till the swelling goes does so I can finally see all the hard work that I apply to my body.
You have been a godsend and I’m grateful for your compassion and wonderful gift of being an exceptional surgeon.
Plastic Surgery Patient Review 16
thank you so much for taking such good care of me through this. You made my mom and I so comfortable that I was not even nervous at all before the surgery. Seeing the results I obviously had no reason to be nervous anyway. I’m not even fully healed and already I look incredible.
This has been a life-changing event for me. I’m already standing up straighter and my back no longer hurts. I can’t wait to be able to go back to doing all of the things I couldn’t before you helped me.
I will be eternally grateful for what you did for me. It really and truly has changed my life more than I realized it would already.
Plastic Surgery Patient Review 15
Thank you for the special care you showed me. Everyone was very caring. Enjoy!
Plastic Surgery Patient Review 14

Plastic Surgery Patient Review 13
I want to thank you so much for setting up my meeting with Karen at KS Fitness to help me. I am working with her three days a week and she is wonderful. Your generosity and care made it possible for me to continue to see results that I was looking for since my surgery.
I want to thank you for making me feel safe & secure enough to go through with my surgery. My surgery has changed my life and my feelings about my body and has diminished those insecurities. This has been a long journey still with plenty of path ahead & it wouldn’t have been possible without your gentleness, your & your staff’s guidance and assurance.
Thank you for being a doctor who truly cares about his patients and requires that same high standard in his staff.
Plastic Surgery Patient Review 12

To my handsome Dr. Godek,
It has taken me 19 years to take this journey with you = and I’m glad I waited. Roger and I knew after my 1st meeting with you that this would be “okay”. I want to thank you – from the bottom of my heart – for taking such good care of me; and so many women like me. You truly care. Thank you for making me even and thus “no more pain in the neck”
Plastic Surgery Patient Review 9
Thank you for taking this journey with me, for teaching me that anything is possible. You are an extraordinary surgeon and an unbelievable humanitarian. I was a mess – physically and emotionally. You healed ‘all of me’. I will always be grateful for your kindness, compassion and strength. I never felt alone!
May God grant you blessings forever and always and keep you safe.
With all my heart, with gratitude -
Plastic Surgery Patient Review 8
Dear Dr Godek,
Well here it is, your purple blanket! I hope you enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed crocheting it for you. With every stitch I felt honored that I could give you a small token back for all that you have done for me. My experience of having breast cancer has really changed my life in more ways than I could imagine, but in so many was it has been a positive one. You and your staff have been so genuinely kind every time I walked in your office. If we could just clone all of you, no one would ever be afraid to go to a Dr. again, I have felt more like a person than a patient.
In July, it was you and your staff that came to my rescue when I was so sick and needed a Doctor you all were there for me. In the hospital, I knew when you showed up something would be done. You were a phone call away and that is unusual with any Doctors office I have been to. You have proven what a kind man you are and whoever it may be that helped you in your life to be this exceptional person that you are I give my thanks to them. The night before my surgery the nurse brought the form in to sign all I had to see was your name and I knew it was fine. In the pre-op room, you came in to see me before hand and as you were leaving you said ok “See you in there beautiful.” If you remember I told you that YOU were the one that is beautiful, not the way you thought I meant though (although you really aren’t too hard on the eyes) your beauty is in your heart and that shows.
My 20 year old daughter brought me to the office in July and she was reading one of the magazines with a write up about you. When I came out she said if she ever needed a Plastic Surgeon you would be the one, based on the fact that the last thing you do before leaving for work is you kiss your wife goodbye. It’s nice to know that my daughter understands the importance of that.
So I hope you enjoy this blanket and share with your wife on those cold winter nights coming up.

Dear Dr. Godek, Jeff and family and staff,
How can we possibly express our gratitude for your tremendous efforts and generous donation of 100 hams and bags filled with the trimmings distributed on December 20th. This undertaking showed the true meaning of Christmas to all those families in need.
The team of the ‘Bread of life’ food pantry of the First Baptist Church of Toms River cannot find appropriate words to say how thankful and grateful we are that you have given so many of our recipients a special Christmas.
We can only hope you saw how grateful these familiars were from their smiles and “thank yous”.
Thank you again for caring and sharing.
May God richly bless you and your loved ones in the coming year. You have been a blessing to us.
In service to him,
Ann Brown and the Bread of Life team
