Dr Foshag did my breast biopsy many years ago. He had excellent beside manner. I took his time and explained everything to me. Two years later after my surgery-- you could barely see any scarring. And I never had to come back. He did a much better job than the first surgeon who had performed the same type of surgery in the other breast. I trust and highly recommend him and he would be my first choice if I ever needed a surgeon again.
