Dr. Pennanen has a long record as an excellent breast cancer surgeon and specialist, but I did not understand how good she was until I was diagnosed with breast cancer and she performed a double mastectomy on me. The amount of time she spent when she gave me the diagnosis and in the meetings we had leading up to surgery was extraordinary. Her level of caring and consideration was profound. Her attention to detail in the operating room was proven by an excellent outcome (2 yrs all good still) and it was a complicated surgery due to the size of my tumor. I highly recommend her as a top breast cancer surgeon!
This Thanksgiving, I wanted to share my appreciation for all that you do! Thank you, doctor! :)
