“Dr. Spiegel was highly recommended by my oncologist. It had become necessary that I look into reconstruction and a lymph node transplant. Dr. Spiegel does amazing work. She loves what she does and it shows in the results that she achieves. I am very happy that I chose her for this journey! Her support staff are wonderful to work with as well!”

“Dr. Spiegel and her wonderful staff got me through the most difficult experience of my life. Going through mastectomy and DIEP flap reconstruction is traumatic. I chose her over other Houston area surgeons and felt that I could trust her. Everyone in her office supported me each step of the way. First, and foremost, this is a major surgery and you rely on medical excellence to avoid important risks. She is a perfectionist regarding medical safety. Next, her artistry is outstanding. She got the best result that could be possible. Finally, if you have radiation, it is a long journey of several years to get from the beginning to end of the process, involving a year of a temporary expander before the final reconstruction. It is important to have a team that you can have that trusting supportive relationship over time. I feel very lucky and grateful that I was in the hands of this wonderful group of highly skilled women.”

“I cannot recommend Dr Spiegel and her team more highly. I attended her clinic when having trouble with uncomfortable implants after a previous mastectomy. Dr Spiegel suggested DIEP procedure and I was really not sure. Over the coming months both she and her team explained the procedure, the benefits and results and implications. I decided to go ahead and I could not be more happy with the results. I look like I would have done pre mastectomy. I have been amazed by the continued care and concern of the whole team from the finance folk to the clinic nurses and doctors and their absolute pleasure in seeing my delight. A fantastic experience and I can’t thank them enough.”

“Dr. Spiegel is my guardian angel and I owe her and her entire team and staff a debt of gratitude that I will ever be able to repay! I am one year out from my original Diep flap surgery with her and I feel great- like myself again! After undergoing a prophylactic mastectomy ( due to testing positive for the BRCA 2 gene and strong family cancer) and getting breast implants with another doctor, Dr. Spiegel saved my life by removing the implants and performing Deip surgery. The implants cased me so much pain and diminished my quality of life but now I have it back. I have no more pain and my breasts are soft again and created from my very own tissue. Thank you Dr. Spiegel!”

“Dr. Spiegel is simply fantastic. I am so grateful to her and her whole staff (Alexis/Nicole/Lisa/Aidee/Angie) for the wonderful care and support given to me from my very first visit to their office. Dr. Spiegel is so thorough that during the course of my visits, she insisted that I consult a GI doctor for my distended stomach. Turns out that I had an H Pylori infection for which I had to be treated. No other doctors had ever looked past their specialties to treat the whole individual, and I am 59 years old. Subsequently, Dr. Spiegel pushed for an endoscopy, and it was discovered that I had an ulcer for which I was treated. From cardio work up, lab tests to chest xrays, Dr. Spiegel ensured that I was in top shape for surgery and made sure that I understood all aspects of the procedure and treatment.

During my stay at the hospital, Dr. Spiegel, Alexis, Nicole, Dr. Arroyo, and Dr. Vo infused me with so much strength, support and kindness that I have no words to express my gratitude and appreciation. It’s been one month since my surgery and I’m feeling good, healing very well and going back to work next week. Awesome doctor and wonderful staff.”

“I cannot say anything to describe how great and excellent a surgeon she is at the same time, the most compassionate! Going through breast cancer and having to deal with the issues that comes with it, she always gives you hope and something to look forward to. Her surgical skills are par excellent and I will not hesitate recommending her! You are in great hands and her staff is amazing! They respond immediately to concerns, questions and appointment! Definitely, a 5 star caliber surgeon!”

“After being diagnosed with breast cancer only six weeks after giving birth, my life was turned upside down over night. I immediately started chemo therapy, and a few moths later I was researching reconstructive surgeons. Dr. Spiegel came highly recommended by my oncologist, and I’d later find out it was for very good reason. Not only was I welcomed very warmly by everyone in the office, Dr. Spiegel showed me such a great deal of compassion that it really helped to put my mind at ease for my upcoming surgery. It was very clear from the wealth of information on her website, her tutorial videos, and the personal attention from everyone in office – from her PA’s, to the office manager to her billing specialist – that everyone there was working together, fighting together, for the absolute best experience and results for the patient. The whole process from start to finish took a holistic approach to treating the patient. I ended up getting the DIEP Flap reconstruction surgery, and I was very worried about the final results – not just the look of the breasts, but also the abdominal scar. Dr. Spiegel explained everything in great detail to me, assured me she was going to make it all look wonderful, and after just having finished the second surgery (the cosmetic phase), I am thrilled with how it all looks so far. I’m still healing, but I cannot believe how great it all already looks. Dr. Spiegel surpassed my expectations, which were already very high. She’s given me back a body I’d thought I’d never have again. My breasts look like they did when I was 20, maybe even better. And while there’s no getting around the fact that this type of surgery leaves a long abdominal scar, her work left a very clean, soft line. One that over time, I know will fade and blend nicely. She contoured my entire abdominal and thigh area, and used that tissue to reconstruct the breasts. It all looks incredible. She’s truly an artist. I’d highly recommend her to anyone thinking about about getting this complex surgery done after a double mastectomy. Thank you Dr. Spiegel and all you amazing souls at her office. You all helped me tremendously through such a terrifying time in my life and shepherded me to the other side of it.”

“I knew I was in good hands after my first visit with Dr. Spiegel. Her smile, her attentive staff, her medical explanations, and her sincere inquiry into my expectations and concerns all gave me confidence to choose her as my breast reconstruction surgeon. Now, I am a cancer survivor and a renewed female body survivor!”

“The Staff at Dr. Aldona Spiegel’s office is so wonderful! Even though the wait time can be lengthy at times it is worth it to work with such lovely people! They are always there to answer your questions and help you with medical and insurance questions!”

“Dr Spiegel is by far my favorite Dr EVER!!! She is not only EXCELLENT at what she does as a DR, she is also one of the most compassionate human beings I have had the privilege to meet. She helped me to feel like me again.”

“Just want to thank Dr Spiegel for her incredible work. She did my surgery when nobody else would. Saved my fingers.”

“My journey began 21 years ago. After three other surgeons did what I can only assume was their best (with devastating results), and more reconstructive surgeries than I even remember (really!), I was referred to Dr. Spiegel by a friend/fellow survivor. It may sound dramatic to say Dr. Spiegel has changed my life, but it is a fact. Dr. Spiegel’s work made me feel whole again (and damned proud of how I look for the first time in 21 years!!). I cannot begin to express the impact, not just physically, but mentally. LIFE CHANGING! HOPEFUL! I pray that any woman that faces this challenge does herself (and her family… because they are on the journey with you) the favor of exploring what Dr. Spiegel can do. She truly cares about each patient, and in my book, she is an angel. Dr. Spiegel actually got excited when she could see how happy and excited I was about my results! Last, I cannot end without paying tribute to her team. You will not meet a more wonderful, caring group of human beings.”

“Aldona Spiegel is the VERY BEST BREAST RECONSTUCTION Specialist in Houston. I had a double mastectomy, due to her recommendation (even though I had 3 tumors on only 1 breast). Man, was I impressed. Heck, I went up one cup bigger than I was originally and my body looks better than when I went in. I have had bras made for me and the ladies who work to “fit me”, say “Oh my gosh, WHO did you have do your surgery! I have never seen such a GREAT OUTCOME! I said, Really? What do you normally see? She says, “Butcher Jobs”, Not symmetrical, etc. I will confess that I had to show my girlfriends who at my age, had saggy breasts by now whereby mine are perkier than my 21 year old daughter! I am VERY PLEASED with the results and HIGHLY RECOMMEND her to anyone in need of this type of surgery. You will NOT be disappointed. Go for it!”

“This sounds crazy, but Dr. Spiegel and her staff made my breast reconstruction pleasant! She is caring first, but also professional and talented. I look better than I did before breast cancer. If you have faced breast cancer, do yourself a favor and call her office.”

E.G.


“ABSOLUTE BEST DR Ever!!!!!!!! Dr Spiegel is amazing and so is ALL of her staff !! Not only does she do an amazing job, she really cares about her patient’s.”

“Dr. Spiegel was so friendly, we were very pleased with the overall experience. The results of my procedure were incredible. I would highly recommend her.”

“I trusted Dr. Spiegel to perform breast reconstruction on both of my breasts following chemo and radiation. I have NEVER regretted that decision for one moment. She is an amazing physician with skills that are second to none. After researching my reconstruction options (type of procedure), it was crystal clear that Dr. Spiegel offered me what I was looking for…DIEP. Ladies, do yourself a favor and do your research before you decide to compromise your abdominal muscles!! One last important comment- Dr. Spiegel is a perfectionist. You will not be disappointed with the end result!”

“Dr Spiegel and her staff are a top notch team. Always available via phone or email to answer questions regarding procedures, treatment, follow ups, and insurance. Dr Spiegel takes the time to listen to your concerns with empathy and a keen compassionate ear. The results have been incredible, and I am completely satisfied with the results. I would highly recommend this talented Doc and her staff for your reconstruction journey. Thanks for your dedication.”

“Before you select a reconstruction doctor you owe it to yourself to visit Dr. Spiegel. She and her team are knowledgeable, professional and a caring. I had a double mastectomy with reconstruction and my experience and results are amazing! She’s passionate, detailed, and the best. She was part of my God given “Dream Team!””


“If I were to define Dr Spiegel in (1) word it would be “PERFECTION.” I had a prior breast reconstruction surgery with another physician that was flawed to say the least. I made an appoint w/Dr Spiegel hoping that she could help me-she is the BEST thing that could have happened. I let her do “her magic”– my reconstruction results are nothing less than “spectacular.” I could not be more pleased w/her dedicated office staff as well. Dr Spiegel is “A GEM”-her work and bedside manner both TOP NOTCH!”


“As one of Dr. Spiegel’s patients for over six years, I could not give her a higher level of praise. She is a wonderful surgeon and a warm and caring physician.”


“Dr. Spiegel is the epitome of a great surgeon. Skill, knowledge and bedside manner are her greatest qualities. My best friend recommended her to me when I was diagnosed in 2015. Everyone in Methodist that I went through from registration to blood work to X-ray were on cue when they saw Dr. Spiegel’s name on the paperwork. I know that kind of respect is earned and because of that respect, I knew I was in the best hands. My surgery and recovery was flawless due to Dr Spiegel and her team.”


“I cannot stress how amazing my reconstruction journey was, thanks to Dr. Spiegel and her team. She listened to my concerns and gave me all of the information that I needed to make an educated decision. I cannot imagine trusting anyone else.”


“When I first walked into Dr. Spiegel office I was nervous not knowing what to expect. Once I was called to a room I was treated like family and everyone was nothing but nice. Dr. Spiegel explained everything to me in detail and answered all my questions. I and now completed with my reconstruction and I feel and look amazing. Dr. Spiegel is someone I would refer anyone too she is the best in her field.”


“I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer at 35 with no family history. A friend who is also a Breast Cancer survivor and medical professional recommended Dr. Spiegel and I am SO happy she did. I am 8 years out from my double Mastectomy and reconstruction. Her staff go above and beyond, including calling me on their vacation day to schedule my surgery sooner. I am Extremely pleased with the reconstruction process and results and would (and have) recommended to many friends and strangers.”


“Though I already knew I would have delayed reconstruction, I first consulted with Dr. Spiegel following my initial dx of inflammatory breast cancer. Dr. Spiegel is very compassionate and I immediately felt I was in the best hands. I told my oncologist that I was consulting with her and he raved about her and called her an artist.”

“Wonderful doctor and staff!!!!”


“Dr Spiegel has helped me not just physically but emotionally as well. She takes her time with you to understand you and your situation and guides you all the way through your procedure with her and her team. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for the best.”


“Dr. Spiegel performed my breast reconstructions after an eventual double mastectomy about ten years ago. The work done was exceptional, as well as the aftercare. A decade later the work is still amazing. During a really rough time of my life she and her staff were so kind, helpful and knowledgeable. I highly recommend, Dr. Spiegel.”


“Having a bilateral mastectomy doesn’t have to disfigure you. In fact, I think I look better than I did before breast cancer. This is all thanks to Dr. Aldona Spiegel. She and her staff treat you like family from the first consultation. I couldn’t be happier with my results. One year later, I am on the other side of things and planning a tropical vacation with my husband. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, Dr. Spiegel.”


“I saw three different physicians in Houston for my breast reconstruction needs. It was clear to me that having Dr. Spiegel do my surgery was the clear choice. I have done my research. She has done more DIEPS than any other surgeon in Houston combined. She really has done more cases than all of them together. I found the other doctors to be more sales like and tell me what i wanted to hear. Dr. Spiegel was honest, caring and truthful. She carefully explained to me all the options and the pros and risks of each type of reconstruction. Her entire staff seems to have the same caring feelings for me that Dr. Spiegel did. There are not enough words to describe how i feel. After 4 days post-op i was back on my feet and six months later I have never felt better. I am back in swimsuit, I am feeling like a women again and there isn’t a doctor in the world that can do what Dr. Spiegel does. I can’t recommend her enough and i would being everyone a dis-service if I didn’t tell the world that if you’re looking for a doctor that understands breast cancer, that understands breast reconstruction and has made it her goal in life to give women the best possible outcomes….you need to go see Dr. Spiegel.”


“When I found out I had DCIS at the age of 35 without any family history of cancer during my very first mammogram, I was shocked and devastated. My breast surgeon referred me to Dr. Spiegel for reconstruction and I was not sure if Dr. Spiegel was the person for the job. She is so young and I didn\’t know if she is experienced enough for me. After researching online and reading up on Dr. Spiegel\’s work, I scheduled a consultation with her. She was very easy to talk to and I felt completely at ease with her. She answered all my questions to my satisfaction and I knew then she would make me complete again. The surgery was very smooth and my recovery was without any hiccups. All my family were very pleased with the surgery and Dr. Spiegel\’s staff are wonderful. 6 weeks after my DIEP flap surgery, I was at the gym doing kickboxing class. My family was amazed at my recovery. I am now 14 months out of the surgery and besides a bit of numbness around the surgery site, I feel great and normal. I am very blessed to have Dr. Spiegel and her team on my side. Thank you for all you have done!!”


“Dr. Spiegel is a rock star to me and so many of her patients! Her skill and expertise combined together to give me a wonderful breast reconstruction result. I have never looked back after trusting Dr. Spiegel and her team!”


“Dr. Spiegel performed a bi-lateral DIEP flap reconstruction immediately following my mastectomy in 2010. I found Dr. Spiegel because two of my friends had previously seen her with great results. Both Dr. Spiegel and everyone in her office showed me a caring attitude, professionalism, a sense of humor, and responsibility to timely do what they said they would do regarding dealing with insurance, labs, etc.I believe Dr. Spiegel to be very skilled at breast reconstruction surgery and I am happy with the results. Sometimes I had to wait a little bit longer than I would have liked, but not too bad, and she spent all the time with me that was needed without rushing out of the room. Her staff is just as great as she is. There is no doubt I would highly recommend Dr. Spiegel to anyone who needed breast reconstruction.”


“Dr.Spiegel is the best in the breast reconstructive field. She performed a DIEP flap procedure to reconstruct my breast using my tummy fat. I am 8 months out of the surgery and I feel great!My new breast looks wonderful. Her staff are also very caring and professional. Dr.Spiegel and her staff understand my needs and I am glad that I have them on my side to face the breast cancer together!”


“My reconstructive surgeries were in 2011. Dr. Spiegel and her staff are very caring, dedicated professionals. She listens to my concerns, and takes them seriously. I am very pleased with the outcome of my surgeries. This included effective reconnection of my nerves in my breast tissue.”


“If you are looking for PERFECTION — look no more– Dr. Spiegel is the “Best of the Best.” After hearing the dreadful and scary diagnosis by the radiologist that no woman ever wants to hear in any shape or form — “I am sorry you have breast cancer”– I knew through all the confusion that I would need to undergo immediate double mastectomies–the underlying question would be “what do I do to feel normal again– is it even possible?” I came into Dr. Spiegel’s office– and everything changed after that– after meeting her and discussing the options for breast reconstruction– I felt so at ease with her– she was exceptionally thorough, she explains everything down to the tiniest detail, and she will expect nothing less than perfect. I chose the Diep Flap stomach reconstruction technique– the results are PERFECTION– in fact, I could not be more pleased with the results. Dr Spiegel is such a superb, caring, compassionate, meticulous physician that I hesitate to go anywhere else for anything else– she is a “one of a kind” doctor and person that is so rarely found– a true gem. Without her and her excellent supportive staff, I would never have been given this wonderful gift of truly remarkable breasts; every single day, I have felt blessed and so very fortunate to have found such a treasure– Dr Spiegel is nothing short of super-spectacular!!”


“DIEP performed in 2006…excellent results .Couldn’t be happier with my new breast.”


“Dr. Spiegel is a perfectionist, she performed a DIEP flap reconstruction using my own stomach tissue, in Sept 07. She also used micro surgery to reconnect my nerves so I have my feeling back. At 52 years old, I feel great, I look great, I am so symmetrical, and the reconstruction looks so good that sometimes, I even forget which one is my original. This summer I went out and bought a bikini and spent a week on the beach. A diagnosis of breast cancer does not have to send you on an emotional roller coaster, Dr. Spiegel and her staff put my life back together again.”

“After bilateral mastectomy and a year and a half nightmare with implants, I was fortunate enough to find Dr. Spiegel. She listened. She cared. And she gave me hope that I could be comfortable in my own body again. She removed the breast implants that were causing me such pain and discomfort, then created breasts for me using DIEP flap surgery. The result is more than I ever imagined possible! Not only am I comfortable in my body again, but I have soft, warm, natural-looking and feeling breasts, that are all me. Sometimes I look at my naked body in the mirror and forget that my breasts are not my originals. Sometimes, I even feel sexy. Dr. Spiegel is a gifted microsurgeon. Because she is so talented, I again feel whole. I’m forever grateful!!”

“Dr. Spiegel and her staff are the most caring compassionate doctors I have ever known even when they’re not on call they will make sure that you were taking care of. She is the best.”

“As a young BRCA1-positive patient with a nasty family history of breast cancer, I felt the need to take control of my health while I was strong and otherwise healthy. Fortunately, I was an OR nurse and I really knew what I wanted in a surgeon. I had the opportunity to see Dr. Spiegel’s work behind the scenes before she knew about my personal struggles with this decision. After seeing her operate and seeing how “normal” and beautiful these women looked after surgery, going to Dr. Spiegel was a no-brainer. She is undoubtedly the most talented breast reconstruction surgeon in Houston, in Texas, and arguably in the entire world, if you ask me. Her entire team radiates compassion, holds your hand, and walks right next to you throughout this journey. Even a 5-star recommendation falls short of what I think about Dr. Spiegel and her team- they simply cannot be topped.”

B.H.


“There are many good doctors in our great city but if you want the BEST select Dr. Spiegel. You owe it to yourself to consult with her. She’s extremely knowledgeable, detailed, professional, compassionate and the results are Awesome! Thank you Dr. Spiege forl making me look and feel like me!”

“To the wonderful Aldona Spiegel MD, thank you for the beautiful reconstruction after my bilateral mastectomies in December 2009. I am forever grateful to God that he put you in my path! after 16 hours of surgery and some bumps along the path, I can say now that yes I am a cancer survivor x 2. You are the real Wonder Woman!

Thank you for everything!”
