Patient Comments (3)
in Los Angeles, CA |
In June 2017 I made the difficult decision to have a bilateral mastectomy based on lab results and discussions with Dr. Amy Kusske. I could not be happier with the care that Dr. Kusske and her team at UCLA Santa Monica Breast Center have provided. The treatment provided is nothing short of world-class. Dr. Kusske is an especially caring, considerate and attentive breast cancer expert and is absolutely devoted to delivering the best care and achieving the best possible result for the patient.

Dr. Kasske made a very tough time very easy to go through. She is clearly a master of her craft, both personally and professionally. I will be grateful to her for the work that she did and the careful attention paid not just to my case, but also to me.
in Marina Del Rey, CA |
As a surgeon, Dr. Amy Kusske blends competence with kindness. She explains procedures and goals clearly and readily offers alternatives to procedures when applicable. I couldn't recommend her more highly.
