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.

Love Dr. Gresik!

Dr. Gresik is nothing short of amazing. I never feel like she's rushing me out, she explains everything completely and sets my mind at ease. Breast cancer is absolute torture and the fact that she immediately did an ultrasound to make sure I was ok and I could leave knowing I wasn't having a recurrence meant more to me than I can explain. I feared I would leave not knowing anything needing to schedule an ultrasound but she had it there and I left feeling a million pounds lighter. I cried tears of gratefulness all the way back to my car.

I was very happy with the care I was provided. The doctor explained everything in detail, demonstrated genuine concern about my health and provided solution that was in my best interest! This might have been the best doctor visit I had in my entire life. I left with much better understanding of my health issue and I was provided with a plan of future care! I was extremely satisfied with the care of the doctor and I am extremely likely to recommend her to other people!
