Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I had never felt as comfortable speaking to anyone as I did today with Dr. Bonefas. I felt I knew her all my life. She’s very caring and passionate about woman’s health. She definitely takes her job serious. And I would definitely be seeing her again in the future.

Been going to Dr.B for about 15-20 years for annual check ups. She performed surgery on my Mom about 25 years ago. Never rushed & will spend whatever time needed. And I trust her. That is a biggie for any doctor!

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.
