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.

On the day of my lumpectomy surgery, I had excellent care from all individuals involved, including nuclear medicine, wire placement in mammography, anesthesia and the surgery and recovery. Thank you.

Gresik very knowledgeable, in her field of expertise. Feel like I am in good hands with her.

My only negative is the wait time to see this provider but she always spends enough time with all of her patients to answer their questions so in the end the wait time is worth it. In general, the office area seems a bit cramped compared to other provider's offices.

This was my first visit to *Dr. Gresik's office as my previous doctor, who I had seen for almost 20 yrs., relocated out of state. Although I was apprehensive about seeing a new doctor she was very attentive and understanding and I will gladly see her again when needed!

I received very personal care. I felt that although it was the first time I met Dr Gresik she knew my medical history and the plan for my surgery took that into account along with my new diagnosis. I left with a specific short term plan and an idea of what would follow my surgery based on current information which might change with post surgery new information. Most of all I thought she really cared, something I experience with all doctors and staff at Elmhurst Hospital.
