I was diagnosed w/breast cancer & Dr. Gomberawalla was the surgeon who performed my lumpectomy. He was excellent, my surgical scar is hardly noticeable. He has always thoroughly explained what he was doing & why. At one point I asked if a procedure (an uncomfortable MRI) could be skipped and we look at another option. Dr. G said yes and considered another option. When I needed to do some follow up tests, Dr. G remembered that I requested that another option be explored. Dr. G is a skilled surgeon, he is thoughtful & caring. I got through a difficult period in my life without a great deal of anxiety because of Dr. G!
