This is who you want to do your breast cancer surgery . I was diagnosed in October 2012, let's just say I feel your fear! Dr. Edmiston was so thorough in reviewing my test rests. She explained that there are 4 steps to dealing with cancer.1) diagnosis 2) removal of the cancer (her job and by the way, a nurse that works that surgical unit told me, " she always gets the margins!" 3) radiation - she had picked my radiologist 4) oncologist- great referral! Awesome Dr.!
