I discovered a year and half ago that I was BRCA 1 positive. This important discovery began a long road of difficult decisions that I needed to make concerning my health. Once I decided to go forth with a double mastectomy with reconstruction to give myself the best possible chance of avoiding my breast cancer statistic, I knew the first thing I needed was a good plastic surgeon. Dr. Michael Diaz came into my life upon recommendation by my oncologist. In retrospect, I can?t imagine this journey without Dr. Diaz.
Dr. Diaz is a modern physician with the most up to date plastic surgery skills, combined with an old fashioned genuine concern for his patient?s overall well-being. When I walked into his office I was greeted by my first name and the staff was very caring and also discreet. They were attentive to my needs and happy to do their best in creating a stress-free environment. The patient-doctor communication is superb. How many doctors do you know today that will give you their cell phone number? To me, it felt like a safety net for anytime I felt like things weren?t right with my body. I could just call and be reassured or if need be, see him right away. Dr. Diaz became an important part of my life over the last 8 months and I consider him a trusted friend.
The results of my procedure surpassed my expectation. Dr. Diaz never made any promises accept to do his best work and always keep my end goal in mind. His explanation of procedures, possible complications, and possible results were always real and to the point. For a woman to be facing the loss of her breasts, a most intimate circumstance to be in, you hope and pray for medical professionals that will care enough to provide the best possible outcome for you. I am happy to say that Dr. Diaz created beautiful breasts for me, the next best thing to my own. My cosmetic results from the reconstruction are to be admired, and I highly recommend Dr. Diaz for any of your plastic surgery needs.
