Provide a print out of what the sessions will be and how many.

2020

The building was a little difficult to find, I had to drive all around the parking lots until I saw a small sign above the door with my doctor's name. I didn't see a number on the building, or on the sign in front, or the business name anywhere.

2020

Having cancer, surgery, radiation,and on chemo pill is scary and every pain in the breast scares you. Dr Gittleman answers every question and helps to reassure my concerns. One of few doctors who says call me any time you have a question or a concern, and she means it. She is one in a million.

2020

Every person I have met who is connected with this practice is simply fantastic. The one thing that would have improved my experience is to never have cancer again.
