I found Dr. Eigelberger to be attentive, listening to my questions and concerns. Answered all of my questions in a professional manner exhibiting her knowledge as a surgeon. Her specialty in breast surgery was especially important for me.
in Brentwood, CA |
Contrary to the last two reviews, my wife and I have found Dr. Eigelberger to be the exact opposite of the person described. She listened, answered questions and was conservative in her approach. If it weren't for her, my wife's discharge would have been delayed a day due to an internal hospital screw up. Altho' we had a surgical referral for a different doc because of the reviews herein, we are sticking with her for elective surgery based upon our experience w/ her and her efforts on our behalf

Like reviewer AM Dr. Eigelberger has zero bedside manners. I felt rushed in the appointments with her and brushed aside when I had any concerns. I won't be going to her again or would recommend her. She failed to tell me the level of concern my biopsy was. Now I'm looking at a possible second surgery due to this. The staff at that office is fantastic, too bad they have to deal with her.
in Walnut Creek, CA |
I would not recommend Dr. Eigelberger because her manner is impatient, rude and condescending. She has no bedside manner. She gets impatient irritated when you ask questions about your health.
