Philosophy Of Care

Because 100 percent of my practice is dedicated to caring for women with a variety of breast conditions, I can keep current in a rapidly changing field. And while I am a surgeon, not all of my patients require surgery or have breast cancer. Some of my patients have other breast conditions like cysts or abnormal mammograms, and I work closely with my patients to develop the course of treatment that's right for them.
If a patient does require surgery, I am trained as an oncoplastic surgeon, which means I can manipulate and reposition breast tissue following an excisional biopsy or lumpectomy, to maintain the natural contour of the breast. I can help my patients maintain their self esteem, which is so important to me.

It's rewarding for me to develop relationships with my patients. I want each and every one to think of me as a partner, and ultimately, a friend who can help in the decision-making process and throughout the duration of her treatment.

Learning from my patients, seeing their bravery if they're faced with a frightening situation, hearing their stories - it's wonderful to partner with them on every step of their journey.

Dr. Gresik is exceptional! She really takes the time to explain what is happening. Her explanation uses the visual aid of the actual mammogram. She uses language that uses medical terms, but then goes the extra mile to explain what that means. I cannot say enough about her exceptional professionalism and bed side manner. I feel so lucky that I was able to have her as my surgeon during this difficult time.

Dr Gresek reviewed my past tests and compared to current in both mammogram and MRIs. Explained the information gained from each. Reviewed other tests needed and told me how to schedule them. It was very helpful to see how areas of concern light up on the MRI and why a biopsy is needed to determine if it's cancer.
