Dr Karsif made a very difficult time in my life much easier. Very easy to talk to. Really cares about her patients. Wonderful-I can not say enough good things about her
in Suffern, NY |
Researched breast/plastic surgeons in:Columbia,Sloan K, Mt Sinai. Dr Karsif & her team were only ones who welcomed questions & didn't frighten/bully me into a treatment.Not one could offer the surgery she & her team expertly accomplished:mastectomy,cancer free,nipple/skin saved,abdominal tissue used to reconstruct w little pain or scarring,no muscle compromise,no radiation & top hospital care.Her compassion & skills are extraordinary. U will NOT EVER find another doctor like this one!
Warm and caring, always makes you feel special, Good sense of humor, down to earth
