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 was incredibly thorough. I saw her for a second opinion, and her consultation was by far more comprehensive. She spent an hour explaining my situation and her proposed treatment. The first surgeon I consulted with covered maybe 10% of what Dr Gresik told me. I had no question I would be in good hands under her care.

Overall, my care providers are wonderful. It was the extended wait time that was frustrating.

Even though I had to wait for a bit, I didn't care because from the time Christine walked into the room, til the time she left, I DID NOT FEEL NEGLECTED in ANY WAY! She's AMAZING and yes. I have a girl crush on her, and I don't mind saying that! Lol

Dr. Gresik sealed for me that Elmhurst is where I belong now after 40 years at ... and she said absolutely nothing inappropriate. It was her bedside manner of patience, treatment options, explanations for my present management, and conclusions based on reviewing my history. She was impressive. Not all physicians take the time to get a short story line on their new patient prior to seeing them. It was just a great experience with her.

The doctor was awesome. She is extremely thorough and made me extremely comfortable. She explained everything and I walked away feeling very confident about the plans for my treatment.

I always have an enjoyable experience with Dr. Gresik. She takes her time, makes me feel as if I'm her only patient, listens attentively and informs me to not hesitate to contact her office if I believe something feels wrong or off. She always provide what I should be looking or feeling for so that I understand how to stay healthy and not ignore what I think may be minor. She's one of the best doctors I've worked with and always addresses concerns and provide options.
