Dr. Ficenec is caring and easy to communicate with. He gave me peace about facing breast cancer. He is willing to talk out concerns prior to procedures. I trust him. He has a great staff as well.

Answers questions, explains procedures, and possible complications. Orders necessary tests, schedules surgery quickly. Clean, neat, precise. Very difficult to find in Corpus Christi.

Took my concerns to heart and got right on top of my case. Things could have turned very badly, but he was skilled and able to recognize that there was a problem and it was just a story. I trust this surgeon completely.
