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.

This office was so on top of things. I called in the morning because I just had a cancer diagnosis from another provider. They got me in that day on a Friday, so I didn't have to worry all weekend. it was such a blessing. I never met Dr. Gresik before. my neighbor strongly encouraged me to see her and I understood why. I can't say enough positive things about her, her receptionist and nurse navigator. I'm so glad I found her. just wanted to add that the Greeter at Elmhurst is awesome. I never was there before having to get an MRI done. she was the most caring lady. I wish I had her name to put on this survey too.

Dr. Gresik is an amazing doctor. She put me at ease immediately. Explained my situation and set out a course of action for me to follow. Also, this is a cheerful office. For an office which deals whit a serious medical disease this was refreshing.
