What People Say About Dr. Alejandra Perez-Tamayo, MD
Reply
Great, absolutely fantastic. She took my hand from day one and made this horrible journey of being a breast cancer patient to being a breast cancer survivor seem oh so less terrifying. Thank you for your kindness and intelligence when it came to my healthcare. Another wonderful doctor that on a scale of 1 to 10, is a 10+
