What People Say About Dr. Melissa Fana, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Dr Fana was an exceptional surgical oncologist for the following reasons: she explained my cancer diagnosis and how it pertained to my care, she discussed breast cancer and my genetic relationship to my cancer at length and in simple terms, she realistically and caringly taught me what I was going to be faced with and, she laid out a plan in which she was going to work together with me to remove cancer from my body and guide me through the post-op process. I had my surgery with her in January 2019 after another surgeon performed a Failed Lumpectomy (after I had requested having the module removed for 8 months), and left positive margins. A dear friend recommended Dr Fana and she was an angel for me. If you want professionalism and a truly caring surgeon go to her. I feel terrific and she was exceptional and helping me feel empowered thorough the daunting diagnosis of breast cancer.

Dr. Fana is absolutely fantastic. Besides being a terrific surgeon she’s one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. I know I’m in good hands and am so thankful I found her. I HIGHLY recommend her to any woman dealing with breast cancer. You will not regret your decision to be in her care. Also her staff is top notch. Everything is scheduled for you so that stress is taken from you. Can’t say enough. She’s the best
