Dr. Cullinane completed my bilateral mastectomy. On our first consultation visit, she spent 90 minutes explaining all of my options as well as explaining my genetic predisposition towards breast cancer. She is kind, caring and her work is impeccable. I would highly recommend Dr. Cullinane to anyone who needs her expertise.
Torrance, CA |
So kind and gentle, took the time to explain all the surgical options. Her sweet and reassuring demeanor, gave me comfort during a scary cancer diagnosis and surgery. Amazing surgical skills. Referred by a plastic surgeon, as she does such a good job, it makes their reconstruction even better.
in New York, NY |
From the office staff to the doctor herself, all were very professional, informative, and accommodating. I highly recommended Dr. Cullinane.
in Venice, CA |
Being diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year was scary and unsettling. Dr. Cullinane has been an angel on the journey. She is kind, patient, and gentle. She answered all my questions thoroughly and professionally. She listened to my fears and concerns and gave me the information I needed to make the decisions I felt were best for me. Her caring bedside manner is matched by her skill as a surgeon. I am beyond please with the results of my surgery and highly recommend her.
