First, I did it because, I wanted me back. But, secondly because I felt that Dr. G was the right doctor for me. And, I was right!
My Doctor: Paul S. Gill, MD
I'm a Breast Cancer Survivor! I had Chemo Therapy and a double Mastectomy several years ago. And, after having gone to several other consultatons with doctor's who specialize in Breast Reconstruction Surgery I went to a consultation with Dr. G. By this time as you might imagine I was really missing looking and feeling like a woman and, I was ready to have the procedure done and, get on with the rest of my life. I felt all of the other doctor's I met with were quite capable but, I also wanted to feel a connection, I wanted to feel like the doctor and his staff really cared for me and about me. When I went for my Consultation, I was greeted by Jennifer (who I had spoken with over the phone to schedule my appt). She is just as sweet as can be and, I instantly felt welcomed. I waited for only a few minutes if that in the lobby and, then the Patient Care Coordinator, Dora introduced herself, and welcomed me to the office and led me to the exam room. We chatted for a few minutes and, I felt like I was talking to a friend. She stepped out to get Dr. G. When Dr. G walked in the room, I instantly felt at ease. He had a warm and compassionate demeanor about him. He also welcomed me to the office and he listened. He listened to me talk about what I'd been through and now that the Cancer was gone I desired to feel and look feminine again. He explained the different breast reconstruction procedures and techniques in terms I could understand. He answered my questions and addressed all of my concerns. He then showed me before and after photos of other ladies in my same circumstance. He examined my chest and let me know what kind of result was possible for me. I felt self-assured in his abilities as well as his warmth, caring and compassion towards his patients.
