Any recommendation will be appreciated.

Hi Cutie,

My breast surgeon is Lisa Bailey, a kind and highly-regarded doctor in the Bay Area. I had a mastectomy with immediate DIEP reconstruction, and Dr. David Chang, who partners with her to do the reconstruction, was also amazing. I was very happy with my care and the outcome of my surgeries. I still see Dr. Bailey for yearly follow-ups.

Hoping for the best for you!

Kathy

One of the gals in my cancer support group raved about Dr. Bailey. She was very happy with her.

Nima Grisson was my surgeon. I just loved her and she is highly regarded.
