Review for Dr. Gesme

Dr. Gesme followed his gut instinct about me and had me get an MRI of my breasts after I had received a negative mammogram. The MRI showed a cancerous tumor that had not shown on the mammogram. Without his good judgment and instinct I would have had a much different outcome. Thank you, Dr. Gesme
