Every woman's fear...!


Every woman's fear! My gynecologist told me on her exam that I had a lump in my breast. Trying to deal with the shock, my Ob/Gyn suggested to me to see Dr. Lygas. She told me he was an extremely skilled surgeon, and he would be the best breast surgeon for me to go to.

My phone call to his office was met with a caring and understanding receptionist. The appointment was made and the staff patiently worked me through the forms and paperwork needed in visiting a doctor's office.

On the day of my visit to see Dr. Lygas I was so tense but when Dr. Lygas quietly and slowly entered the exam room (not like a whirling dervish as some other doctors who rush into and out of the exam room!) I began to calm down. He actually sat down and listened to what I had to say and did not rush me though my telling him my symptoms. After explaining to me I needed a biopsy and WHY, he arranged for me to have a needle biopsy done by him in the office the next day. The biopsy went smoothly-no pain (as he reassured me it would be) and Dr. Lygas actually encouraged me to do my weekly food shopping on the way home!.Which I did!! '

A few days later, when the results came back, Dr. Lygas spoke to me on the phone and told me the good news. It was benign!!. As he promised, he himself called me, told me the results and answered my questions right there and then. We had a conversation! So often with many other doctors offices or hospitals you only speak to a nurse or medical assistant and go back and forth for days with trying to speak to someone who can definitively answer my questions about the results.

Dr. Lygas and his staff took me through the terrifying process in a calm and caring manner which made this experience as positive as one can possibly hope for given the circumstances.

Thank you, Dr. Lygas
