I truly believed that Dr. Mesko has been an angel in my life and I am forever grateful to him. I met him in 1995 when I had a nodule on my neck and he had to remove 3 quarters of my thyroid, the resulted as malign. I was devastated. I would never forget his words: "Elba look at me, you are not going to die from this. All you need to do is get your treatment and you will stay with me until you will be released." He was very compassionate with me and the way he treated me, made me feel as if I was part of his family. Twenty Four years later I was faced yet again with another experience this time I developed an atypically lesion on my breast. Dr. Mesko did the surgery a week ago. it was such an amazing experience. Fro Dr. Mesko is very important the well-being of his patients, so he called me 2 days prior to my appointment to tell me that the Biopsy result was benign. Thank you Dr. Mesko for your kindness, for your knowledge and for showing me that you really care. Forever grateful.

Always kind caring with great understanding and support. I am in love with his support and time that he afforded me. I have had three cancer scares over 10 years. His knowledge was far greater than the referring mds. I would highly recommend him.

I was at Mt. Sinai as a new patient seeing a Doctor there and it was determined I required surgery. He suggested Dr. Mesko and his my Doctors Nurse Manager called downstairs and arranged him to see me the same day. This was very helpful and professional as I live in Broward County they saved me an additional trip. Dr. Mesko and Staff were very informative on the surgery and was very pleased with their knowledge and professionalism. We only had to wait about 45 minutes which I thought was great because they added me to the schedule and thought I would have to wait much longer.

As a patient of Dr. Mesko for many years, I am always impressed with the efficiency and professionalism displayed in his office. I have always been seen on time (according to schedule). Dr. Mesko and his staff have been caring, they listen to what I have to say and are always helpful to walk me through scheduling of tests or other assistance I need. As a cancer survivor, I feel I can trust Dr. Mesko and his wonderful staff because I know I am in competent and caring hands.

Dr. Mesko was amazing. 12 years ago, he performed a neck surgery on me, ruling out lymphoma. He went beyond our expectations. I just want to thank him and highly recommend him. Very professional, very caring.

I was seen shortly after arriving, no Ming wait. The doctor immediately examined me and was not hesitant to disagree with the previous diagnosis. He was cautious in making the final diagnosis and sent me for a second MRI. I'm very pleased with his attention and his staff. They are very professional and nice at the same time.

20 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK (at age 42), now 62, Dr. Mesko operated on my very difficult chest wall tumor; referred by an m.d. who said I should go to the BEST (after 5 prior specialists and endless workups). I met Dr Mesko who QUICKLY diagnosed and operated. His brilliant expertise, calm demeanor, and exemplary hospital care, as well as his wonderful team for 7 years followup are unsurpassed anywhere!!! My full Boca Raton family life resumed quickly thereafter! Yes, Dr. Mesko saved my life!!

Dr. Mesko is one of the best doctors I was lucky enough to have taking care of me. I was diagnose w Breast Cancer and was recommended to see him for my surgery. Not only he did an amazing job but prior to the surgery he took the time every consultation to explain what was going to be the procedure, to answer every single question, ease my worries and always with professionalism and good humor. He is one of the best if not the best surgeon in Miami.
