Unlike the stellar reviews here, we've had a not so good experience with Dr. Pesek. I wish her all the best, but hope she is more welcoming and better to those coming to her for help.

I was diagnosied with breast cancer and referred to Dr. Pesek. She spent all the time i needed to the point where we had no questions and stood there almost wondering why they werent kicking us out, she gracuiously spoke to a family member that is a cancer doctor with no hesitation and her staff is top notch, all very kind and willing to answer questions and take time with us. called with appointments and made us feel like we were the most important people there!! A huge thank you and recommend!

Receiving a diagnosis of breast cancer is a very scary event. The first thing I needed once I was diagnosed was to see a breast surgeon. I was referred to the office of Dr. Sarah Pesek. My husband and I had our initial visit with Dr. Pesek, and immediately felt at ease. She took her time with us, explaining all the facts clearly, leaving no stone unturned. I did not feel the need for a second opinion. Her surgical excellence is clear, by the way I am healing.
