in Westchester County, NY |
Dr Pass is both direct and warm. She answered all of my questions during an extremely harrowing time. When searching for a doctor I was working in Stamford and heard "she was the one to go to". She also has a great team in her office. They were kind and helpful during a horribly upsetting time, and that includes a day when I was on the verge of tears.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer 5/19/17. I had heard of Dr Pass from my daughter-in-law and because of her experience with Dr Pass decided to have her as my surgeon. Dr Pass is the BEST and I strongly recommend her. She is very direct, very professional and very kind to her patients at such an emotional time of their lives. AND must important to all she is a faaaabulous surgeon. She is available to you and has an amazing staff all of whom care about you the way Dr Pass does. Get Dr Pass!

Dr. Pass and her team at Stamford Hospital are truly a well-oiled machine. Every single employee I had the pleasure of dealing with treated me with respect, kindness, and dignity. My questions were answered completely and explained to me in terms I was able to comprehend (not having a medical background) and I left feeling like an active participant in my care instead of a patient.

Dr. Pass did my mastectomy last year and before the surgery she made me feel so at ease with the procedure and what was to follow. She's compassionate and knowledgeable. I'm so happy to have had her as my surgeon.
