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.

My appointment with Dr. Gresik was my "second opinion" about my breast problem. She was wonderful, much better than my other possible surgeon. She really educated me about my condition and what the surgery would entail. My showing me mine actual mammograms I was able to get a much clearer understanding of my surgery. While the surgery won't be fun, I feel very secure that I am in good hands.
