    Dr. A. J. had a two page diagram of exactly what is normal in a breast and then showed me how the breast works and what I had and how we were going to fix it and kept reassuring me that if all is as the mammagram showed he could go in and remove it but wanted to do an MRI to be sure that things were the way he was seeing it now. Loved that!! He had with him a "navigator" nurse who wrote down everything he said. WHAT A BLESSING. No guessing later when we went home and tried to remember.

    Dr. AJ has a very calming manner. He put me and my husband at ease after discussing my surgery options for breast cancer. During the initial consult he talked "to" me and not "at" me and he made me feel (based on his confident and calming manner) that everything was going to be ok.....I will be 2 years cancer free at the end of this month!!!!
