LIED on my official medical records! While doing ultrasound on my breast, (and without giving a reason) stopped & said: "Can I stick a needle in it?" I said 'no'. I later asked for a copy of my records- and within them he had stated that "he had given me a long reason for 'the needle', and that I acknowledged the possible risk to my health by denying it".

Dr. Gesme followed his gut instinct about me and had me get an MRI of my breasts after I had received a negative mammogram. The MRI showed a cancerous tumor that had not shown on the mammogram. Without his good judgment and instinct I would have had a much different outcome. Thank you, Dr. Gesme
