Very excellent care and her incisions are so fine that there is barely any scarring. I have already recommended her as she is a wonderful doctor.

Dr. Wasicek has been my surgeon and friend ever since summer 2012 when I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. Her professional, caring demeanor helped me come through with far less side effects than expected for a 77 year old woman. Thank God for such wonderful care providers. She is tops.
