He filled the entire criterion...

I suffer from the "big city white coat syndrome". When I felt I had a lump in my breast, I thought I would only get the best of care at big "cancer centers" or hospital centers, so off I went. However, I rarely got to see my assigned doctor and found I was bounced from residents, to nurse navigators, to "Fellows" and a bunch of staff members. All the time I felt I was just another case to be treated, not a real person. But of course I was getting the best care, wasn't I? My case was presented at conferences and was discussed by people who never have seen me, examined me, or questioned me. They even wanted to put me into "clinical trials" that had no proven results. With so many already proven positive treatment methods, I started to wonder about being a so called guinea pig for something new that had no proven results. It sounded impressive but made me wonder if I was getting the "best" care.

After I lot of thought and research I decided that it was not for me. I searched in our area for a breast surgeon that practices university level care with proven therapies and would be up to date on the latest technology. I also wanted a doctor l-could talk to and relate to and had a high level is specialized knowledge. I found Dr. Theodore Lygas. My research showed he filled the entire criterion I (established) in breast surgery and had a lot of experience with breast diseases of all types.

So I called. It was a pleasure to get right thru, (without prompts or voicemail) to a caring phone receptionist. She listened to my problem and I soon had my appointment and knew what I needed to bring with me. When Dr. Lygas entered the room, he exuded a quiet, reassuring confidence as he warmly looked me in the eye and began to ask me questions. I interjected with my long list of questions and challenges. He patiently answered all of my questions, often citing the latest research and statistics. He told me that he consistently goes to conferences with the top people and researchers in the world in the field. He asked me about my family and even my dogs. (He too loves his dogs and family). It was no wonder to me why thousands of women have gone to him with their breast problems. Of course, after all my research, I chose Dr. Lygas and I am glad I did.

I definitely had a skilled, knowledgeable university level surgeon without the hassle I had gotten from the hospitals and big groups.
