What People Say About Dr. Elizabeth Bonefas, MD
RecentMost Helpful
Reply
I met with Dr. Bonefas to consult on potential treatment options within the context of a medical group that I had worked with before meeting Dr. Donefas on a different medical problem and ultimately decided to pursue treatment options with a different medical provider. Thus said, I give Dr. B. top marks for her listening skills, her compassion, her depth of knowledge, her patience with my complicated backstory. She speaks candidly about the risks of treatment and I respect her for that very much

I have been a patient of Dr. Bonefas for over 15 years. She performed several biopsies for me. When I was diagnosed with cancer in 2012, she continued the excellent care & concern as always. I am forever grateful for her honesty, professionalism and care she has given me.

Cannot say enough great things. Never had surgery before, and everything went smooth and turned out to be less traumatic than I had built up in my head. She listens to all of your concerns and explains things clearly, really easy to talk to.

I first saw her 2005 breast cancer, she is my Guardian Angel. When I am told by a friend they have breast cancer I give them Dr. Bonefas' contact information. She is compassionate, understanding, ethical and will spend as much time with you as necessary. You will not find a better doctor when you are facing breast cancer. My family doctor, Dr. Keith Aldinger, referred me to Dr. Bonefas when a mammogram was negative and I thank God he sent me to the right person.

I have never met the amount of trust and security as I did with Dr. Bonefas. She never rushed, she answered all questions and made me feel so comfortable before and after surgery.
