    Problem with doctor

    Oh No

    The plastic surgeon didn't believe I had an issue. A coworker of mine gave me the name of a breast cancer specialist plastic surgeon and we met with him.

    The second plastic surgeon listened to every concern and was supportive and helpful. He made the scars very minimal and the finished reconstruction was amazing. We are so happy now.
