Patient Comments (1)
in Irvine, ca |
Dr. Curcio performed a colonectomy on me in 2005, prior to her specialization in breast cancer. To put it bluntly, she was part of a chain of wonderful doctors that God put into my life. I am told that she performed my surgery on little sleep and once she started she encountered much more than she expected. She gave me the news later that evening that my stage 3 cancer was actually stage 4. However, she was honest and straightforward in her dealings with me. I highly recommend her
