I'm BRCA1 positive. I had ovarian cancer in 2015-16 with 6 rounds of chemo. November 2016 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Dr Echo did my breast reconstruction after my double mastectomy.

I am sorry that you felt that I was not able to provide you with the service that you had hoped for. That is never the goal. I take great pride in my profession and want the best for all of my patients. This includes situations such as yours, where I would not be able to deliver the surgical result/outcome that you were expecting from the photographs that you shown me. Which was the reason I had recommended a few other surgeons in the area, who may have been able to help.

Dr. Echo is a great doctor. I was very emotional through the process of my treatment as I was very scared. He and his staff were very kind to me and took time to explain things to me in a simple language that I could understand. I would highly recommend him. I am very happy with my results.

Dr Echo performed hernia repair, abdominal and breast surgery on me. The treatment I received was outstanding. I'm very happy with how I was dealt with before, during and after surgery. The results are amazing. Dr Echo is highly skilled and professional. I would recommend him to everyone!!
