Patient Comments (3)

It is worth the wait to be seen by such a caring, intelligent and talented Doctor. She always takes the time to listen to her patients even if it's outside her specialty. She is a remarkable surgeon and takes on the most difficult cases too. I've had friends who had reconstructive-type surgeries...more

The BEST. You won't find a better Surgeon and a wonderful wonderful woman. 5x Throat cancer survivor because of her I am still here. I can't say enough about UC either. Just phenomenal. She saved me. In more ways than one.

Gem of a person and a doctor, always happy to talk and give advise on anything beyond the ENT problem. I am a psychiatrist myself and I always joke to her that she should be a psychiatrist instead of a surgeon.
