MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

I had two mastectomy's, Had a rough go with a few serious infections. I had decided that I was going to pass on reconstruction. Til my home care nurse told me to at least go meet Dr. Ford. As I wanted the surgery I just didn't want anymore issues with infections and JP issues, I was pretty much mindset I was NOT having reconstruction with expanders. When my husband & I walked into his office it was much more like being invited into someones beautiful home. I had a really hard time with each mastectomy the left side was taken Oct 5th 2010 & the right followed on Dec 7th 2010. They were both a mess and were not cared for at the hospital & surgeon that did them, I had to go to my family Dr. or the hospital to the emerg Dr's. After that whole experience I was dead set I was NOT having any more surgery. That was until I meet Dr. Ford. After speaking to Dr. Ford for only a few minutes I had completely changed my mind. His knowledge is incredible. His work is done with care. His bedside manner is amazing. Always willing to answer any question. Even didn't mind when I accidentally call his cell number while he was on holiday out of the country. He even called back to make sure I was on the proper antibiotic & dose. I have never had a Dr. show that much compassion for a patient. He is a Dr. that enjoys being a Dr. to help people.
