Renewed Hope - Morristown, NJ

This review is a long time coming and Im so happy...

This review is a long time coming and Im so happy to share my wonderful experience of Dr. Rafizadeh. I came to him in 2013 having been diagnosed with breast cancer in my left breast in 2012. Prior to coming to him, I had undergone a bilateral mastectomy with partial implant reconstruction and 30 treatments of radiation therapy. My main issue was that radiation had compromised the reconstruction to such a degree that I had daily pain due to capsular contracture and malformation of the radiated breast. I was in pain both physically and emotionally, and extremely unhappy with how my breasts looked and felt. Dr. Rafizadeh patiently and thoroughly discussed all surgical treatment options with me and which of those options would benefit me the most. He considered personal body type, skin quality, medical background and healing capabilities due to radiation treatment, as well as my personal expectations. It was more than just choosing a procedure, it was more about the procedure being the very best fit for me to ensure the best surgical outcome. I deeply appreciated his experience in working with breast cancer survivors and his approach to helping me make decisions that were quite overwhelming at times. He did a two step procedure, the first of which was a fat transfer and two months later the old implants were exchanged for new ones which were a better fit for me. He also repaired, beyond my expectations, an area on my left breast which was damaged from radiation. He restored symmetry to my breast and my pain level was dramatically diminished, and today I am totally pain free. He is not only a doctor of extensive skill and experience but he also brings to us as patients his personal qualities of compassion and dedication with a focus on our satisfaction and personal well being. This made all the difference for me. And!! As if all this is not enough, he has the best office staff on the planet, knowledgeable, patient and friendly. Together they made a very difficult time in my life easier so that I could restore some peace to my life. Forever grateful..... Nadine Porter
