I am very sad to learn about Rodger Pielet's passing. I did not know Rodger, the doctor, although from what I've read he was a very successful and generous one. I knew Rodger, the high school kid and Sunday school classmate. As a matter of fact, when I occasionally hear Stevie Wonder's, “Sir Duke” on the radio, I think of my dorky misfit teenage years in the seventies and the silly lyrics that Rodger and the class wrote to the music as some sort of project.

Although I lived in Aurora, IL, only briefly, following my family's immigration to the United States from Ukraine, I was touched by Rodger's warmth, kindness, humor, and intelligence, and friendship. Rodger and I tried corresponding after my family's move to Pennsylvania in late 1970s and then, as it happens too often with high school friends, lost touch. I am not at all surprised that he had lived such an incredible life and positively impacted so many other lives in the process. My deepest condolences to his partner, Christopher (BTW, many of us high school girls thought Rodger was quite a catch!) his mother Barbara (I still have that cube necklace you gave me for Confirmation,) Dana, John, and Douglas.

Oh my....I just found out about Rodger's passing today, Oct 9th. I first met Rodger in 1980, we were both residents of Phelps House at Tulane. After he took his JYA abroad in England, he returned senior year, I ran into him before classes started, a prior living arrangement fell thru for me and he welcomed me to share what was a converted slave quarters on Octavia Street. I sure had a terrific house-mate my senior year. We had different schedules so we got along! I'm so sorry to hear this and truly feel for all his family and longtime friends. We all know how giving he was as a human being to all people. I'm very shocked and saddened.

My husband and I recently learned about Rodger's passing. We are terribly shocked and deeply saddened. We shared an interest in private aviation with Rodger. Rodger was an expert in his profession and it does not get more successful than that. Our condolences to his partner, his mother and other family members as well as Caryle and the rest of his dedicated staff. Truly a great loss.

I am so sad to hear of Dr. Pielet's passing. I just found out upon calling the office to make an appointment. He was an artist with a heart of gold. I always said "he would never steer you wrong" when it came to making decision for a surgical procedure. I have trusted my life in his hands. He was not only brilliant, but compassionate and always so personable. Always made you feel like part of the family when at his practice. My deepest condolences to his partner, family and friends. This was a great loss. I will miss you Dr. Pielet. Thank you for being such an honest and caring man. This world will not look the same without you....

I'm shocked to hear of Dr. Pielet's passing. I saw him in December and called to make an appointment a couple of months ago and again a few days ago. I should have known something was wrong because I couldn't catch anyone in the office, which was so unusual -- I still can't believe it! My sincere heartfelt condolences to his friends, family and dedicated staff -- business manager Caryle, nurse Sharon and esthetician Isabelle. I'm so sorry...

I was priviledged to have been --not simply treated--but cared for by Dr. Pielet. I can't find the words to adequately express my sorrow and condolences. I hope you can find some solace in knowing how many lives were improved by his work.

My heart goes out to Chris, the love of Rodger's life. Rodger is missed by all those lucky enough to have him grace our paths. I know he is watching out for us all right now. Once a healer, always a healer. When walking past the helicopters, the restaurant at Merrick Park, the park on Key Biscayne I see Rodger in the distance. His spirit and presence is near and will be forever in our hearts.

Besides being an outstanding doctor, Rodger Pielet was kind, caring, and creative. His beautiful office was a pleasure to visit, and he had the best staff - Caryle, his business manager, Sharon his plastic surgery nurse, and Isabelle, his esthetician, are all top notch . Much sympathy to his partner, his family and staff. I will miss him.

My thoughts are with his partner, family, and all the people lucky enough to know him.
He was a great man, a great surgeon.
I made the mistake of silicone injections in my face in the late 90's. Top plastic surgeons in 2001 said "NO..to me can't help you". A friend took me to Dr. Pielet. He said .."I'll try ..we will work at this". Thank god for him. I Always texted him every Feb 13th
(13 my lucky # ..his too:)
"Happy B.D. Dr P". I just said a prayer for him this year.
RIP my friend you were loved by many. I will miss you
