What People Say About Dr. Melissa Pilewskie, MD
RecentMost Helpful
Reply
Dr. Pilewski was wonderful, both as a surgeon and as a person. She provided me multiple options but also respected my final choice not to have reconstruction. The result was exactly what I asked for, and her calm demeanor helped me get through a very scary time. A year and a half later, I am just as satisfied. The work she did, the care she took--I strongly recommend her.

I feel very lucky to have had Dr. Pilewskie as the surgeon who performed my lumpectomy. She is extremely thorough, patient and had a lovely bedside manner while displaying much confidence and knowledge. ISloan Kettering is an amazing facility with a kind and patient staff.
