What brought me here is a good friend of mine, who also went through a similar reconstruction, sees another physician here and referred me. And the minute I met Dr. Kobienia, I knew he was the doctor for me. Very conformable setting, he explained everything, and I've been very happy with the decision that I made to have him as part of the team.
Dr. Kobienia is a very relaxed, easy to talk to person. He answers all the questions that you may have. He spends an incredible amount of time with you just to make sure that you're comfortable, and when you leave, you know exactly what to expect. The staff here at the office is wonderful. I've never had any issues with trying to get appointments. They're very complementary in making sure that I have everything I need before I leave the front door, so, great group of people.
The overall experience has been positive. Going through reconstruction in cancer is a very scary situation, especially having it to be such a shock. And Dr. Kobienia and his team of people really took the fear out of it, versus everything from just the surgery to the follow-up visits. So it's been very helpful to have a doctor that you trust and you can rely on. So the experience has been, overall, wonderful.
Breast cancer is such a common thing today, it seems like. Recently since I've gone through it, two other people that I know have gone through it, and I've referred them to Dr. Kobienia, too. So I wouldn't go anywhere else. The results that I've received here far outmet my expectations. Not knowing what to expect, it's kind of a scary situation, but the expectation was high. And Dr. Kobienia and his team of people actually met it. So it's been a great experience.
