Hi, I know your post is over a year old, but I was wondering if you ended up going to see Dr. Clavin and what you thought of him, how your experience was. I can't seem to find many patient testimonials for him. Dr. Sarantou also referred me to Dr. Clavin. Any help you could provide would be much appreciated!

Hello ladies,

How are you all doing? I live in Raleigh and I had my initial surgery at UNC and my doctors were Dr. Carey, Dr. Lee and Dr. Gallagher. I now have my follow-up care at the Duke Women's Center in Raleigh where I see a NP who is great, Emily Dill. You all inspire me!!! I can relate about wanting to get our children out of high school. My son will start the 11th grade in the fall. I've been a single mom since 2002.

Hi! I'm from NC (Wilson), but was living in Montana when I was diagnosed and treated. I did return to NC several times (long story) to be seen at Duke (on breast clinic day - wonderful experience, got to see several different experts all on the same day) by Dr. Georgaide (highly recommended PS).

Charlotte here.

PS: Dr. Kulkarni (CMC -- and a female!!!). MO: Dr. Sulai -- but I'm considering checking out UNC and Dr. Carey to discuss long-term endocrine strategy. Not terribly pressing as I'm on Tamox for the time being.

We should get an NC dinner together somewhere/sometime/somehow!

Franklinton here. I go to Duke Breast Center and had surgeries at Duke Raleigh Hospital. BS is Dr. Tolnitch. She is awesome. I’ve been with her for about 6 years (for non-cancerous biopsy prior to this dx) MO is Dr. Smith. He is really a great listener and is so helpful answering my questions. My PS is Dr. Carlino. I don’t know how I got so lucky as to have him. He is patient and kind and I think he does beautiful work. It is a great team and I am so happy to have them all.

I'm in the Greensboro area. My MO is Dr Gudena at Cone Health Cancer Center. Chose to go to New Orleans for BMX & natural tissue recon (DIEP flap) at The Center for Restorative Breast Surgery - BS was Dr Ordoyne, PS was Dr Dellacroce. I've never ever seen recon work like these guys do and so happy we decided to go this route and travel for the surgery. Happy to answer any questions!
