Dr. Sigurdson is not only one of the best in her field but a dedicated professional. I came to her for a second opinion because she was reccomended by a close friend but I stayed with her for my surgery and treatment because I had complete confidence in her ability-she made me feel like a person instead of just another patient. After my surgery I happened to run into another gal who was treated for her BC at another facility. When her cancer recurred, she was referred to Dr. Sigurdson by her previous surgeon. That conversation confirmed I went with the best possilbe surgeon from the beginning!
After finding out about my colon cancer and other medical issues, I needed a Dr. that could answer all my questions about my treatment but was also compassionate. Dr. Sigurdson was that doctor. She informed me that surgery was needed and gave me self-confidence that everything was going to be ok. After my first appointment with Dr. Sigurdson and her team, I left Fox Chase confident that I had the right surgeon to perform my operation.
This Thanksgiving, I wanted to share my appreciation for all that you do! Thank you, doctor! :)
