“I had a panic attack immediately after my mastectomy/reconstruction and her office sent me to the emergency room, where she was in surgery,” the patient explained in her review at Vitals.com. “She came to my room almost immediately and validated my emotions with the most honest answer of 'well you just had an amputation, panicking would be the normal response.' I was embarrassed and she made me feel so comfortable.” The patient further said how safe she felt knowing she was getting the best care.
“She is very honest and will not make your decisions for you, but she will give you all the facts, good and bad, that are necessary to make an informed decision.”
