I had surgery for a partial mastectomy and was very happy with my care, my treatment, the general handling of a very unhappy situation. Dr. Rock was concerned, knowledgeable and explained everything fully. As I was blindsided by this happening at all, it was very nice to have someone take the time and care that he did during the initial visit, the surgery, and the follow up phone call. He definitely had great 'bedside' manner and it was much appreciated by me as I have always been averse to going to see or work with Doctors.

Misdiagnosed. Had he done the biopsy like ordered I could have started treatment sooner. Avoid at all costs. He does not listen and nearly cost me my life.

I went to Dr.Rock after a biopsy came back benign but atypical ductal. He ultrasounded the area that was biopsied and that lump was gone but I mentioned that I had another lump. He said it was either a sweat gland or lymph node which are both normal objects in a persons body and that he would not biopsy it. So I asked him well who would and he said no one. I’m going elsewhere, he’s incorrect. This site notes in his procedures that he does biopsy lymph nodes.

Dr. Rock did not go the extra step to biopsy a lump that was there for two years. Had he just biosped, we would have found the breast cancer earlier. Instead recommended I come back in a year. Now more extensive cancer treatments are needed once a biopsy was done. Would have been a lot easier if with an earlier diagnosis. Also, front office was very rude when trying to make an appt. Told me I could have an appt 1.5 months later. Thankfully, went to a different doctor and now in treatment.
