I Had an Amazing Experience with ThermiSmooth!
I had an amazing experience with Dr.Bertolino! The receptionist was both welcoming and friendly. From the moment I walked in I felt like very comfortable. Dr. Bertolino really took his time to listen to all my concerns and was very honest about what I could expect. He explained the procedure in detail and also gave me realistic expectations. I was hoping for an overall improvement, but was actually pleasantly surprised at how much of a difference I saw! Even my husband noticed! And the treatment itself, was totally pain free. I actually found it to be relaxing. It really gave me my confidence back to wear a bikini again.
I have been under Dr. Bertolino’s care for about nine months now. I am receiving Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy. I could not be happier with the treatment I am receiving. Menopause hit me like a truck. I felt like my entire life had been taken from me. I sought Hormone Replacement Therapy through my gynecologist and an anti-depressant as well. I knew that these were not ideal for me; I had done my research. I read The Wisdom of Menopause by Christianne Northrup, MD, and knew that if I needed treatment for menopause symptoms, BHRT was the only was to go. I have trusted Dr. Northrup for years, having read many of her books. I live in the south towns, so I made up mind to get BHRT as soon as I could. I made the transition to Dr. Bertolino’s practice very easily. I knew when I walked through the door of his Williamsville office that I had arrived in the right place for the right care. I had arrived early, and Dr. Bertolino offered me a cup of coffee. Once you get to know him, you realize that he and his staff are people you can trust. Dr. Bertolino has a huge heart, and I trust him completely. I have had absolutely no trouble with menopause-related symptoms since starting BHRT. I can sleep peacefully through the night. I have no hot flashes. I am not depressed. I could go on and on, as there are several other devastating symptoms that are gone now. I want to recommend Dr. Bertolino and his lovely staff to other women so that they too can feel better–for the long run. I hope to continue this treatment indefinitely. There is no reason to think that I can’t or shouldn’t continue. This has been the biggest relief, knowing his practice is there for me, and I now have my life back!
I’ve been seeing Dr Bertolino for 3 years now. I found myself at age 40 needing a hysterectomy, I had no other option as my endometriosis had taken over my body. The pain was indescribable. I had a wonderful gynecologist, who I had trusted with my life. Believe me when I Say I truly trusted my gynecologist, but he is a surgeon and I and many other women I have met needed more than a surgeon. When I explained my symptoms to my doctor, which included savage hot flashes, horrifying heart palpitations with anxiety, memory loss, and what I call the “corpse vagina”, he told me I needed to talk to my primary physician. I went to my primary physician and was prescribed an anti depressant. I refused! I searched the internet and talked to other women, and that’s when i found Dr Bertolino. I started HRT and immediately realized I wasn’t crazy. I need my hormones balanced. What a difference this has made. I feel like a human again. I also tried vaginal rejuvenation, all I can say is WOW!! The corpse vagina is gone!! Also I’m not peeing myself every time I cough. HaHa I highly recommend Dr Bertolino if you have any concerns of your mental and physical well being. Anything is better than feeling like you’re losing yourself more and more as each day passes.
Dr Jack and his staff are friendly, efficient and professional. In to my 3rd year of BHRT treatment. I have more energy, sleep great, feel fantastic. People guess I’m early 60’s I’ll be 74 next month.
After suffering from painful intercourse for many years, I had given up on dating altogether. Recently, a friend told me about ThermiVa so I went in for a consultation with Dr. Bertolino. He spent a considerable amount of time explaining the benefits of the treatment in combination with the bio identical hormone treatments. I decided to move forward with both and I could not be happier with my results. Dr. Bertolino was very professional and made me feel comfortable during the ThermiVa treatments. I quickly noticed an increased energy level and am now noticing improvement in memory from the hormones. But the best part is that the treatments worked and that I now have the confidence to date again. Intimacy is no longer uncomfortable and my body responds to my partner like it did years ago! What a shame that our OBGyn’s do not know to tell us about these fantastic treatments! I am recommending this treatment to all my female friends!
Dr. Bertolino is amazing. He has done fillers… for me for years now. I highly recommend him. He goes above and beyond for his patients. He is professional, kindhearted and he works with you to achieve your desired effects. He listens and advises but is never pushy.He is a kind soul and every visit leaves me with a smile. He does state of the art procedures and is always on the pulse of the newest and the latest procedures. His staff are delightful and treat me like family. He is a true blessing and I am always pleased with the results after my visits!!
From start to finish, Dr. Bertolino was transparent, patient, well-informed, and friendly. He thoroughly explained the steps of the procedure as well as any possible negative outcomes, even those that were statistically very unlikely to happen. Not only did he walk through each step with me, he had visual aids that helped me as a potential patient understand exactly what would be happening to my body. I particularly enjoyed how warm Dr. Bertolino and his wife are. Even though it is a voluntary operation, it’s a very anxiety-inducing situation, and he and his wife made sure to mitigate that anxiety with their beautiful warm personalities and extensive knowledge.
The first part of my operation was the Vaser Liposculpture. Based on online testimonies and personal experience, I would confidently say that Vaser is a better and more convenient procedure when compared to traditional liposuction (that is, for those who aren’t looking for weight loss, rather a tightening of their bodies like a smaller waist, a flatter torso, etc). The procedure left virtually no scars, had immediate results that are only getting better over time (!!!), and had me back on my feet within a week.
The second part of the procedure for me was a fat transfer to the buttocks. While a little more painful than the liposculpture, it was overall a very quick procedure that also had immediate results. Dr. Bertolino’s method of fat transfers aren’t like the violent transfers normally seen with other plastic surgeons. With a smaller cannula and a softer touch, the doctor gently transfer the fat to your desired area, taking special care not to inject the fat below your muscle (which is really bad). To ensure that the maximum amount of cells survive the transfer, Dr. Bertolino puts in about 50% more fat than required for your desired look and has you avoid sitting on your bottom for a minimum of 2 weeks using a special pillow. While slightly inconvenient, following those instructions gave me the results I was looking for (aka a very nice bottom!).
Post-op, Dr. Bertolino makes sure you have a way to always contact him and checks in with you at his office once a week to ensure that the healing process is moving along well. Overall, I have had the best experience I could’ve imagined and would recommend Dr. Bertolino 110%.
This is the best thing I have ever done for myself. It would have to be pried from my cold dead hands !! Go BHRT ! *
Dear Dr. Jack,
You are a great and talented doctor and even better person. May God bless you with wonderful times ahead.
Happy Birthday (Buon Compleanno!)
May you have a healthy happy and long life…
Kind regards from Nepal
Great experience with Dr Jack, he is always so kind and approachable. He recommends what he thinks is best and right for me. I got filler done, not much, as he suggested we start off minimal and can always add if needed. Well the minimum was just enough and so natural looking. Very happy! 🙂
I’m a 57 year old woman. A professional working in the education and public transportation services for almost 25 years now. I am SO VERY happy to be able to say that! Because 5 years ago I was convinced that my life as I knew it, was over. My future was dismal, filled with pain, doctor visits, invasive surgical procedures, hospitals, and despair. I had almost given up on my career, my marriage and intimacy, everything that I knew and loved about my life.*
5 years ago I sat on the back deck of my home, totally unmoved by the spectacular view, and I broke down. I wondered if I wanted to even face another day. Living with hot flashes for two years, it had gotten to the point where I was having one like clockwork every 15 minutes for the previous 2 months. Night sweats, insomnia, mood swings, inability to make simple decisions, worrying and obsessing about everything, and scary extremely heavy menstrual periods that lasted for weeks. During which time if I was home I didn’t leave the house, and if I was at work I was never far from a bathroom and had to be sure I had a supply of pads in the bathrooms or on me at all times. Tampons were no help.*
This is a fact in my tiny community: every woman that I know who has gone, or is going through menopause, has had surgical procedures and/or drug therapies that came with very unpleasant physical and physiological side effects. Including complete greying hair and hair loss, zero libido, weight gain and their bodies begin to look like bloated pears. I have seen many of them turn into hand wringing physically unattractive women in a matter of months. They have undergone conventional surgeries such as hysterectomies, or had their ovaries removed, or their thyroids operated on. Women walking around with 4 inch scars on their throats. I found the alternatives to generally accepted methods of treating menopausal symptoms and complications to be non-existent. I tried pills, creams, and anything I could find that promised to ease my symptoms. I had decided that was the best I could do, just treat the symptoms. That day on my back deck I realized I was doomed, and would have to undergo the traditional treatments if I wanted to keep my job. Thank goodness later that same day, I heard a radio program that gave me an alternative to traditional symptom treatment… and it changed my life beyond what I ever dared hope for.*
I had researched HRT (hormone replacement therapy) and discussed it with my primary care physician. It was a gamble, considering the very real risks and pharmaceutical disclosures relating to the occurrence of side effects and rates of hormonal cancers. What I heard on the radio, and then researched on the web, was a relatively new treatment called BHRT (bio-identical hormone replacement therapy). The key word that changed everything is “BIO-IDENTICAL”!*
If traditional treatment is not an option your comfortable with, please do your own research on BHRT. Dr Bertolino and his staff were very understanding of my concerns and fears. They answered all my questions and I began to realize that I had nothing to loose by trying BHRT. It has been the single most positive medical outcome I’ve ever experienced. I have and I continue to recommend this EXACT treatment to anyone who asks. I am the type of person that, if I wasn’t afraid of loosing my job, would not have tried this. I would have quit early if I could have, because continuing to work as things were, was simply not an option for me. I had to make a decision about some form of treatment, or risk loosing my retirement, or be forced to retire early. There is no doubt in my mind that my day was blessed the day I heard of and researched BHRT.*
I have been a patient of Dr Bertolino ever since. I see him 3 times a year for BHRT. I am telling you that I feel as good as I did 30 years ago. My energy level is high, my physical health is better than ever, my mind is clear, my outlook on life is positive and happy every day. My love life is satisfying, my career is on track, my retirement is secure, and I’m looking forward to enjoying every day of it IF I decide I want to retire in a few years. NOT because I’m forced to.*
Is any of my story resonating with you? Are you suffering and trying to live with unbearable symptoms experienced during menopause? Please schedule a consult with Dr Bertolino and start living your life again. You have everything to gain. You deserve to be happy and healthy. Starting BHRT was the best health decision I ever made. Within 1 week the hot flashes I had experienced nonstop for years ceased. Within 2 weeks the excessive menstrual bleeding stopped. My brain fog ended. My libido returned to normal. My mood swings, handwringing, and moments of paralyzing indecision also ended. There is no doubt in my mind that BHRT treatments have saved my career, my financial retirement security, my enjoyment of life, and most importantly my health.” ABS*
