Misdiagnosed my cancer by relying on an inadequate needle biopsy and her own lack of suspicion and hubris. Was also very arrogant about it. Now I'm widely metastatic. I could have had a much better chance.

Phenomenal surgeon!
in Rochester, MN |
Dr. Hieken is a phenomenal surgeon. Very thorough, clearly dedicated. Dr. Hieken was very professional and friendly. Dr. Hieken was easy to talk with and took the time to answer all my questions. My nipple-sparing mastectomy surgery went very well and I was pleased with all my follow up care at Mayo.
I thought she did great in preforming my surgery but I didn't like the follow up. I left very frustrated and upset. Felt like she wasn't listening to mine or my husbands concerns. They way that I responded to the surgery and recovery was not the normal but she treated me like I should've been like everyone else. If my next biopsy comes back malignant, I wouldn't mind having her be my surgeon but I'm not sure if I will go back for post op. Extra star for surgery.
