    Dr. Rashid is by far the most competent, professional, and compassionate physician I have ever encountered. I'm just blown away by the level of care she provided to me during a scary time. Highly skilled and intelligent, knowledgeable, excellent communicator, and patient.

    Dr Rashid is perfect. An expert surgeon with compassion. She corrected the mistakes from my 1st breast cancer surgery and had to take more breast tissue, which is tough in a man, when the cancer came back. She found the best solution using expertise and creativity and minimized the scar. I recommend her to anyone. You can trust her to save your life and care about you through the whole process.
