Fantastic Surgeon with Great People Skills - Baltimore, MD

Two years ago, before I met Dr R, I had a mastectomy with the amazing team at Johns Hopkins. The cosmetic results were the stuff of dreams -- MUCH better breasts than I had before! The overall experience was so fantastic that I asked my plastic surgeon to give me a face lift. He told me the best person to help me freshen up my looks was Dr R. Dr R listened to me really carefully at every step of the process, and gave me exactly what I wanted. He was attentive and really supportive, answering endless questions and giving me as much (or as little) explanation as I wanted. Like the other doctors I've known at Hopkins, he's not just a great doctor but also a real person, with good people-skills and a commitment to his patients. He made me feel beautiful. My breast cancer days are behind me. I have a whole new lease on life, and a whole new healthy and fresh look as I head into my future. I can't recommend him highly enough.

S-GAP Breast Reconstruction - Baltimore, MD

Dr. R, Johns Hopkins Hospital, was exceptional in every way. Surgically – I have been nothing but thrilled with all aspects of my process. Beginning with my initial consult, the bilateral mastectomies, the optimal care of my expanders, and now my reconstruction surgery, I have been so emotionally strong and well through the entire experience. But more than that, Dr. R has been the utmost in professional, courteous and kind to every one of my family and friends. My two teenage sons and my husband, and my “Team of Advocates” who marched through this process at my side, were always welcome to voice their concerns or anxieties. Dr. R was ALWAYS accessible and responsive to my “teams” needs. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Skillful and Sensitive - Baltimore, MD

I found Dr. R to be extraordinarily responsive, replying to emails promptly with thorough explanations, and in office visits, spending as much time with me as my frequently long lists of questions required. I rarely felt hurried.

Reconstructive Breast Surgery - Fairfax, VA

After being diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer, Dr Rad has been a much respected part of the Oncology team during my treatment. His skills as a Surgeon are unsurpassed and his ability to explain options without overwhelming you when you are feeling lousy from chemo are impressive. He is well respected and liked among his peers and collaborates with them giving me (as the patient) confidence that I am in good hands. I travel 14 hours on a plane to see him and will continue to do so - I have that much trust and respect for him. Dr Rad is also a very fine man, with character and integrity - I respect that the most.

DIEP Flap for Cancer Survivor - Fairfax, BA

Dr. Rad was my plastic surgeon when I had breast cancer and he did a fabulous job with my DIEP flap reconstruction. He is an artist and did a wonderful job matching by reconstructed breast to my natural breast. He was very compassionate and responded to all of my questions and concerns very quickly. It is very rare to find a surgeon that is so talented with such a great bedside manner.
