Dr. Preston's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Preston "I was born in Tucson and grew up in the Phoenix area. I attended the University of Arizona for both my undergraduate degree and medical school education (go Wildcats!). I then relocated to the Pacific Northwest to complete my general surgery residency at Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle Washington. I went on to complete a minimally invasive surgery fellowship at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland Oregon. I have a special interest in the minimally invasive treatment of foregut diseases including achalasia, heartburn/reflux disease, hiatal hernias, stomach tumors, small bowel tumors and diseases of the spleen and adrenals. In addition I am passionate about robotic hernia repair. When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my family swimming, hiking, running, camping and traveling."

Dr Preston is an extremely confident and knowledgeable professional surgeon. My recovery from laproscopic cholesectomy was speedy, incision sites are barely noticeable after a month, my diet is back to what it was before surgery, and close to zero discomfort. She's awesome! You will literally be in great hands! L Hiller

Dr. Preston is a fine upstanding surgeon. She provided me all the relevant information and facts about my condition and what it take to correct. She was very up front about the recovery process and what I would go through. As well as what to do and what not to do during my recovery process.

Dr. Preston was very patient, kind and really helped me understand surgery- including the procedure and the risk. The surgery was smooth and she has been excellent in follow-up. I'm appreciative of her and feel confident about choosing Dr. Preston for my surgery.
in Chandler, AZ |
As a patient with genetic wound-healing issues, I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Preston to assess for myself her attention to my questions, and concerns. Within a couple minutes of meeting her, I felt comfortable allowing her to perform my needed surgery. Both during the initial office visit, pre and post-op meetings, and followup, Dr. Preston impressed me with her attention to detail, knowledge, and modern-day skill set. I wish I could have Dr. Preston as my primary-care physician!
