I was diagnosed in 2009. Dr. Pietrocola did the lumpectomy. Following this procedure I went for a 2nd opinion at Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston. The surgeon who reviewed my case there raved about how well she performed given my diagnosis and markers. She has been an amazing support since then. One of AMC's greatest assets!!

My own experience with her was remarkable. 2016 I saw Doctor Pietrocola after receiving my diagnosis. She was one of the best doctors I have ever had. Explained all in great detail. Made me totally comfortable with what was happening. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone with full confidence that there is none better. If I needed to see someone again it would be her!

Made me feel very at ease with my great surgery and followed up with the same wonderful bedside manner. I think this is a very rare quality for a surgeon.
