Late stage breast cancer thanks to her. TERRIBLE communicator with a "I'm brilliant - you are an idiot - I don't have time to explain to you" attitude. I went in with a large mass to get a referral for an **MRI**. I explained very high risk factors, and that I was told never to bother w/mamms. NO EXPLANATION, she shook her head, took out needle w/o full explanation. Mamm missed tumor. One year later, advanced & metastatic. I've lost everything.

Don't use Dr. Hamad if you have United Healthcare! Hamad is covered under UHC, but the pathology lab that she will send your sample to is NOT covered under UHC. She will not tell you this. You will realize this after getting a $200+ bill from Raleigh Pathology Lab Associates. Dr. Hamad is not trustworthy.

I had an ultrasound on one breast last year and was told it was fine, the "margins" of the area of suspicion looked good so no need to biopsy. went to Dr. Hamad for a separate problem but she honed in on the place that I'd had the ultrasound 9 months previously. She recommended a fine needle aspiration and it came back clean. then a core biopsy procedure, also came back clear. Went for my routine mamo and was told, "there is nothing to biopsy"! So she charged me thousands of $ for nothing!

I went in to have a concern checked out but instead I had a minor procedure done. She was absolutely horrible at explaining what was going on. Then when she asked if I understood I said no and she just continued with what she was doing. She didn't ask for my permission to do the procedure at all. I will be finding a new dr right away! Oh and one more thing when I was explaining when I first felt my concern and how I found it she kept Interupting and not listening at all!

Dr. Hamad has a style like no other doctor I have ever encountered. She is AWESOME! Although I haven't seen her in years, I still recommend her highly.
