  • Dear Dr. Rothman & Dr. Spies,

    Test_01I endured the most trying time in my life three years ago when you both performed my cancer surgery. I would like to thank you both for being so patient with me during that time, I was a little overwhelmed and very angry. You both made me feel very cared for and genuinely concerned for my well being. Not only was I dealing with a diagnosis of a cancer recurrence I had to deal with the fact that for 6 years I was being treated by an incompetent doctor that I had respected and trusted all that time.

    I want to thank you, Dr. Tothman, for being persisistant with me to have the surgery and respecting my families wishes on, not giving me any of the details. My parents were correct in telling you, that, had I known what I was up against, I would have hopped on the first plane out to Tahaiti!! I know you treated me with “white glove” care and I thank you for that!! I prayed many nights prior to surgery that god would guide your hands with extreme care and “he did”!!! Dr. Rothman, you are truly a wonderful and gifted surgeon and I thank god all the time for bringing you to me and giving you the confidence, guidance and skill you are gifted with!! Thank you for helping to save my life!

    Dr. Spies, I want to thank you for giving me the confidence to want to live my life!! With all the gadgets and scars that my body had to endure I am not sure I would have been able to focus on recovering, if in the back of my mind I didn’t know that no matter what was wrong, you would fix it!!

    I have to admit, before meeting you I really didn’t have much respect for plastic surgeons. I always thought of a plastic Surgeon as a “Barbie doll maker”. You, Dr. Spies, are a problem solver, confidence builder and in my case a miracle worker!! Dr. Spies you are very gifted with your talents and have given me the confidence to live my life as though none o this nightmare happened!! Life to me wasn’t worth living if I was always going to be treated differently than I was before or stared at all the time or even pittied, I only wanted to live normally and I do!!! I don’t believe anyone really notices the scars or my “goofy Neck”! I think you are awesome not only as a doctor but as friend!! You never made me feel ungrateful, vain, or foolish when I wanted to fix some of the scars. Your office staff, Tish and Tammie, have always made me feel special. They love their job and are always willing to help with a smile. During dramatic times in your life every kind word and sincere smile can make a huge difference.

    I want you both to know…People ask me all the time if I am afraid of another cancer recurrence and I am speaking the truth when I tell them “NO”!! I have the best surgeons in the valley on my team and they are guided and gifted by the greatest and most powerful healer of all!! I want to thank you both from the bottom of my heart!! My husband and children wanted me to thank you both also!!

    Your are the best!!

  • Dear Dr. Spies,

    Test_13You are an impressive surgeon with skills of an artist. You nip and tick a little here and there or in my case a large amount and make us beautiful. The surgery was painless as possible and I’m healing well. Your staff has been professional and helpful.

    I’ll have lots of years left to play “red light green light” red rover and mother may I with my grandchildren without that extra skin flopping and becoming uncomfortable…lost of winking to be done with the extra skin you removed from my eyelids, my eye’s feel so light, I hope this makes sense.

    Thank you,

    A patient and fan.

My body has never looked better & my husband is thrilled with the results.

    Very Truly yours,

  • Dr. Spies,

    Test_17The words have not been created to express the profound gratitude I feel for all you have done for me. You took a broken-hearted, “butchered” woman and with your expertise performed a miracle. You have returned me to feeling like a woman again and that is a gift that is pricesless. You have traveled a very difficult journey with me and all the while been patient, kind, compassionate and one of the biggest blessings of my life. I thank god for you, not only as my “miracle” Doctor but as my friend. We will finish this journey and I am a better person because of you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and may God shower you with blessings in abundance.

    Most Respectfully, & In deepest Gratitude,

  • Dr. Spies,

    Test_18I just wanted to let you know that you have forever changed my life for the better. My confidence was very low before meeting you and all the possibilities you provided changed that for me. The surgery you performed on me truly changed my life. I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate what you did for me. August 19, 2002 will be a day that I will never forget. I know this is routine work for you, but nothing is about what you did was routine for me. I am truly appreciative and I wanted to let you know that.


  • Dear Dr. Spies,

    Test_19When you operated on my husband, Terry, in Nov 1999 with Dr. Rothman, we had no way of knowing that months later one could hardly tell that he had such major surgery. The true test was seeing his 90 yr old mother in Florida – she was certain it was a miracle that we looked so good and that the flap worked!

    In the last year of his life Terry was still able to talk and eat (both of which we enjoyed) Thanks to you and Dr. Rothman. I am Truly Grateful.


  • Dear Dr. Spies and Staff,

    Test_20I’ve been wanting to drop you a note for a long time – letting you know that I am very happy with the work you did on decreasing the scar on my head by so much. It’s been since Nov 200 since my last operation with you; my hair has had a chance to grow in around the scar, and I wish you could see the results. Yes, I still have a scar, but it is small & is easily hidden by my hair.

    Just wanted to say thank you for all you did for me. I really appreciate it.


    P.S. In case you’re wondering…Baby #4 here this December!

  • Dear Dr. Spies

    Test_21I am so very greatful that you love what you do, and that you do it so well.
    I want you to know that you gave me more than breast – you have me my life back! A year and a half ago I made a vow that someday cancer would be 2nd in my life not 1st. I have mow come full circle and you were a very important part of my journey and I’m deeply grateful.
    May God Bless you and your family. Please extend my thanks to your very efficient and caring staff – especially Trish- what a treasure!

    E. L.

  • Dear Dr. Spies,

    Test_22This card comes with sincere gratitude for the patience and consideration you showed me during my last two surgeries – as well as the eleven years of listeing and encouragement you gave me.

    I am certainly pleased with the excellent job you did for me and I was the beneficiary of your perfectionism, I wasn’t the best patient – but I just could’t have been the worse!!

    Thank you – Sincerely,

    A very satisfied patient.

  • Dr. Spies

    Test_23Here are some pictures of Wilfred’s head reconstruction not all done yet but looking good we want to thank you ever so much for all you have done.
    Thank you doesn’t seem enough for giving him life for I thought I had lost him.
    Doc you’re The Best God Bless You

    Thank you,

  • I have been a patient of Dr. Spies for more than two years now. I learned of him by word-of-mouth, from a surgical nurse and others whom he did work on. I have seen with my own eyes, how some plastic surgery went bad, and swear that I would never have plastic surgery! Then, I met Dr Spies. Step-by-step, he has restored my eyes, brow, face, neck and tummy. Now, I look absolutely natural and half my age!

    I visited my primary doctor after my eye and brow lift. She was baffled about my youthful appearance. She searched my entire head looking for surgical scars, and was not able to find any! I would not trust another doctor!! I had it. Lost it. Dr. Spies restored it!!

    Dr. Spies should be the surgeon to surgeons. He has great integrity and takes his work seriously. His patient care and well being comes first. He goes the extra mile to make sure that his patients are happy with their procedures and will not stop till they are.

    His work: Excellent. Results: Flawless.

    His staff is loving and kind. They made me feel like family.


  • I am 44 years old with three grown children. I went to Dr. Spies for a breast lift/augmentation. I loved my results so much I decided the next year to go further and do a tummy tuck and liposuction. I absolutely love the results of my new body! Dr. Spies and the women in his office went above and beyond for me. Thank you, Dr. Spies for making me look amazing. Thank you for all you have done!


  • Dear Dr. Spies,

    This letter comes to you long overdue and with many heartfelt thanks. I have debated for the past year on whether or not I should bother sending this letter to you. I didn’t know if you would still remember me or would want to know how a previous patient is doing. However, I thought it was important for you to know what a wonderful thing you did as a physician and continue to do. Not every patient says ‘thank you’ but this one will forever.

    I don’t know where else to begin other than ‘thank you’. It is because of your kind heart and the dedication you show your patients that I have been able to obtain a life that I never knew could exist for me. Things that may seem so trivial and nonchalant to the average sized individual were often difficult or untouchable to me due to the large amount of excess skin that you removed. Your talented skills and thoughtfulness helped improve me to what I am today. For this I will be forever grateful.

    Prior to having the excess skin removed as a result of my gastric bypass in 2002, I still let the weight from the undesirable and uncomfortable excess skin hide me from the rest of the world. Even though I lost the weight, I still felt like a prisoner in a frumpy and oddly uncomfortable body.

    However, Dr. Spies, you were able to change all of that for me. I was able to start enjoying life with my husband, family and friends. Most of all, I no longer watched my life pass before me. I now enjoy going to the beach as often as possible. I am finally beyond the fat and skin that left me feeling uncomfortable and ugly. Thank you for helping release the courageous smile inside that I didn’t know could exist.


  • To whom this may concern,

    I am writing this letter about who I consider the most wonderful plastic surgeon and human being alive. His name is Dr. Robert Spies and I can truly say this man saved my life.

    I met Dr. Spies in what was and still somewhat remains the most horrific time of my life. I had a previous breast implant surgery/breast lift a few months previous to our meeting. The ‘surgeon’ who butchered me had left me high and dry and did not take any responsibility for his part in the destruction he had done to my body. I consequently lost my areolas and nipples and had horrific scarring as a result. My feeling of being a whole woman was forever gone and I was beyond traumatized.

    This is when the man who saved my life entered. Dr. Robert Spies came into my life when I thought there was no hope and he gave me the one thing no one could. HOPE! He has since performed several reconstructive surgeries on my breasts and although I still remain without my areolas and nipples, he has constructed my breasts to be as womanly and whole as possible. I have also had a tummy tuck and liposuction a few years later and he transformed not only my body but my spirit.

    I feel the word has yet to be created to properly thank Dr. Spies for what he has done. Maybe it will never be but I can say this with honesty and my entire heart. I could not be more appreciative and grateful to any other human being on the face of the earth as to what I owe Dr. Spies. He is truly one of a kind and his work is without exception. My only regret is that I did not know him sooner to have performed my original surgery.

    Lastly, the staff Dr. Spies has carefully surrounded himself with have become my family, my sisters if you will. They are always compassionate, offer a shoulder to cry on and always share my victory with my successful surgeries that have been done per Dr. Spies. I love each and every one of them as well as Dr. Spies.

    Sincerely and with an overflowing heart,

    Female: 65 Years Old

    Back in 1971 I had breast implants that over the years had become severely encapsulated. They became hard as rocks. I didn’t know who to go to for a revision. As I searched through the hundreds of “Plastic Surgeons” in the Tucson-Phoenix area, I found one that I and my Husband felt very comfortable with. It wasn’t just the Doctor though, we felt a huge difference in the staff’s welcome to Dr. Spies’s office. From the minute we walked in, it was sincere friendliness and a desire to make us feel comfortable there. They all took the time to assist us with whatever our questions were.

    Dr. Spies, himself is a most professional, kind and a very confident, not arrogant Dr. He made sure that I understood what to expect. He made sure that he understood what I wanted as well. He explained all the steps that would take place and helped me pick a size I would feel comfortable with.

    The staff at the “Surgery Center” were caring, helpful and efficient. They each came into my room and explained what would be happening each step of the way. I wasn’t left hanging around wondering what’s next.

    I am so happy that I picked Dr. Spies and his office to take care of me. I would recommend him to anyone needing Plastic Surgery. Your are the best!!
