Hello. Kaiser just scheduled an appointment with me for Dr. Anna Leung, breast surgeon at Sunset. One person recommended Dr. Tran at Woodland Hills, but I am looking to hear from anyone that knows of Dr. Leung or of other Kaiser breast surgeons with whom they have had positive experiences.

Thank you in advance for your help!

idkwhatsnext: My breast surgeon was Dr. Kelly Rae Meek at Kaiser South Bay Medical Center. I’ve been very happy with her. She gives you all the time you need to ask questions, and is very personable. Dr. Meek was also my sister’s breast surgeon, and she would highly recommend her as well. Good luck!

Thank you for your help. I wish I was a little closer to the South Bay; but if I can't find doctors that I am comfortable with closer to me, I may commute to there to meet with Dr. Kelly Rae Meek.
