If having breast cancer could have any upside, then I certainly found it with Dr. Margaret Terhar and her staff. My first contact with the office was with a kind, caring receptionist (Laurie) who worked hard to schedule my appointment ASAP. My experience was all very positive from there. During my initial consultation with Dr. Terhar, she showed sincere compassion and kindness. With her incisive explanation of my health situation and her recommendation for a treatment plan, I felt I was at the right place. Maribel, her coordinator, did a great job every step of the way, from giving meticulous pre/post-operative instructions, to coordinating information from my primary care giver and keeping an open line of contact. Thanks to Dr. Terhar’s extraordinary expertise, my surgery went well, with no complications afterwards. There are not enough ways to express all my thanks to Dr. Terhar and her terrific staff. How fortunate that I found such a great breast surgeon that I can trust!

Dr. Tehar is the BEST. She is very knowledgeable, caring, compassionate and straightforward. She did my lumpectomy and I was at ease knowing that she could do it. The procedure was successful, I had a quick recovery time, and my incision is not very noticeable. I do give God all the glory and honor for a successful surgery and I'm thankful that Dr. Tehar was the vessel that He used. Dr. Tehar's staff is great. Very friendly, professional, and sensitive to the patient's needs.

I was referred to Dr Terhar MD for an abnormal mammogram!! I was a little uneasy going to a specialist. My first visit went so smoothly. Dr Terhar was so caring, explained everything that she was going to do. Explained my sisituation in detail, answering any question I may of had!!! She said she needed to do a biopsy and that she could do it that same day. Miracle, one less appointment to have to make and possibly a quicker answer for me. The not knowing is the hardest!!! Love my new Dr!!!!

Dr. Terhar left deep margin of DCIS in me after a lumpectomy. She lied to me about it. I went to her with a very early stage I. Told me tho she didn't meet required margin she was happy with what she got. 2 years later I lost my breast. I called her after mastectomy, asked her why she lied, her voice got VERY high pitched as she said "Oh yes, I'm very sorry about that," then screamed,"Your oncologist & radiologist should have told you, NOT ME!" My 2nd surgeon is furious with her! BEWARE!!!!
