Dear Team Barbara's Eyes,
As a mother of 4, a New York advertising executive and part-time photographer - my face should certainly show my zeal for life. I have laughed extremely hard, lived rather well, and experienced life's tough blows and throughout it all I have put people at the very top of live's greatest joys and most important beneficiaries of giving back. At 57 I haven't seen a single photograph of my face in the last 25 years that didn't show a genetic predisposition to a heavy-lid usually surrounding an otherwise cheerful expression - if only the Irish eyes were smiling.
I am writing to tell you all that for the very first time in a very long time I can see my hazel eyes smiling without forcing my eyebrows upwards (asking for more botox), or faking some phony expression in an attempt to lift the heavy lid of life. It is with the deepest gratitude that you have all seen me through this arduous process with optimism and support.
Dr. you are a genius, an artist, a brilliant surgeon with the bedside manner of a charm school teacher and your team has even more genuine confidence in you and embodies that confidence in every word uttered in the office.
I am the single happiest and most delighted patient you will ever have and know deep in my shallow heart that without all of you, I would be staring back at my pathetic old self - with fret and angst with the aging process that I must admit would never ever happen to moi.
Thank you for taking care of me from your biggest FAN and your funniest girl.
"Thank you for making me look like a work of art! I sincerely appreciate everything that you’ve done for me."
"I just wanted to thank you for what you did for me. I can’t tell you how amazing and confident I feel! "
"I receive so many compliments on how young I look when people find out my, age and it is due to you. The Botox looks so natural that no one guesses. I always give you credit for your work. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you."
"It has been just about a year since my last visit to your office. Your parting words to me were the gracious “come back if you ever need me.” This may happen, but for now, please know that you and your staff have the eternal gratitude of this ex-patient."
"I LOOK FABULOUS!!!!!! You are an artiste! I want to rush around and call everyone I know and ask them out for coffee so they can see me. The world is a much rosier place right now.
You SO rock! "
"Dr. Passaretti and his staff were all extremely professional and kind. I had a wonderful experience with my surgery and I am so happy with the results! I would recommend anyone to have their plastic surgery with Dr. Passaretti. He is a highly skilled surgeon with a warm and friendly staff to take care of all of your needs."
"I know I say thank you each time I am in your office but I want to tell you that I have truly appreciated your generosity and kindness. Your artistry and giving heart has transformed my life. Yes I lost the weight but I never would have had the confidence that I have, had it not been for you. I truly feel for the 1st time in 25 years that I feel beautiful. The weight loss alone, I think, almost would have made me feel worse. The hanging skin and protruding tummy and wrinkled face all would have contributed to my not feeling better. It was your generosity and talent that brought me to where I am today. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You have truly changed my life for the better. I appreciate all that you have done. Thank you."
"Congratulations on being named a Connecticut Top Doc! Although the events of September 2010 were quite unfortunate, I feel very lucky that I was assigned under your care. Thank you not only for your medical expertise and for “putting me back together again”, but also for your kindness to my husband, son and me."
