As it is during these days of COVID I can no longer shake hands nor see entire faces so its the eyes that have to tell me to trust a total stranger with my life. That Dr Hieken is a surgeon at the Mayo Clinic Cancer Dept; has published or collaborated on nearly 200 cancer related papers and her current research is being partially funded by SU2C should be enough to put my mind at ease. But its the look of empathy in her eyes and the sound of resolve in her voice from the pre-op consult thru surgery and the post-op follow up that assured me I can trust her; no matter what the result.

Tom in Lincoln – Sep 09, 2020
Dr Hieken is a remarkable surgeon! She is definitely a pro and top of her field in doing surgeries and knowing the advanced techniques in her field. She was so kind and considerate in my care and even called me at 7:30 pm on Sunday to see how I was doing and if I had any questions. I highly recommend her and have the utmost respect for her.

Amy B, Michigan – May 19, 2020
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.

Klghanson in Jordan, MN – Mar 20, 2016
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.

Cindy in Rochester, MN – Jan 28, 2016
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.
