Patient Comments (1)
in Santa Monica, CA |
Dr Pianum was my father's surgeon for the removal of his stage 3 rectal tumor. My dad was so nervous about the entire surgery process, before he met Dr Pianim. With her kind demeanor, my father was immediately put at ease. Dr Pianim was so thorough in her explanation of what was going to occur that we all left the pre-op appt feeling much more confident that everything was going to be ok. And, it turned out that everything went great! After a 6 hour surgery, dad became cancer free!
