Dr. Miltenburg is the best in her field. She knows how to put patient's and patient's family at ease. She is a "Godsend" for my wife and my family. The way she talks to you and explains is very refreshing.

Just saw her yesterday and I couldn't be more impressed. Her office was very comfortable and clean and her office person was very kind, friendly and thorough. It was easy to get an appointment and she took a great deal of time listening to my concerns, helping to ease my fears and even gave me referrals to other doctors (primary care, gynecologist, mammogram 3-d imaging facility) who are closer to my area. 5 Stars all the way! It's still true: Canadians are the friendliest people on earth!

I trust my first Impression on Dr. Miltenburg, and I was totally right! She stood by my side, not only as a doctor, but also as a person who had children. She has a respectable personality, which gave me a relief. I am lucky to see Dr. Miltenburg! Also, I am thankful to her team, Veronica, Naomi and Aminata who encouraged me every time I saw and called them. They tried to remove my anxiety, too. I highly recommend Dr. Miltenburg and her team to everyone who is scared of breast cancer.

Dr. Miltenburg says...

I am a surgeon and I treat all malignant and benign breast disorders. This includes breast cancer, inflammatory breast cancer, locally advanced breast cancer, recurrent breast cancer, metastatic breast cancer. I see patients who have a breast problem that has not been diagnosed yet such a a lump, mass, knot, skin changes, nipple inversion, nipple discharge, swelling or masses in the armpit (axilla). I see patients with abnormal mammograms, breast infections, breast pain. I see women with a family history of breast cancer and/or are BRCA carriers.
