    I was diagnosed with breast cancer three years ago after my first mammogram at Elliot. I was originally from the Boston area and was considering going there for treatment. However after seeing Dr Shikhman and Dr Feldman I was convinced I would receive quality care at Elliot as well as personal attention I may not have received in Boston. I decided to have surgery and treatment at Elliot and have never regretted that decision. I received excellent and professional care from Dr Shikhman, Dr Feldman and the entire staff at Elliot Breast Center.

    I had two appt with Dr, in fall 2018 and early summer 2019. She had incorrect info about a serious surgical error made by Elliot Hospital plastic surgeon and the surgical team. I can only assume this Dr. Is too overbooked with patients to hsve time to read patient's full Elliot hospital record. I do not have any confidence in this physician

    My experience with Dr. Shikhman was very positive! She was extremely thorough explaining the initial finding & treatment plan/follow up for my breast cancer. She was very reassuring, comforting to me at a very vulnerable time. I felt quite confident in her knowledge and expertise and would highly recommend her!
