Horrible horrible follow up care. May be a talented technical surgeon but as a compassionate and caring physician she is the worst."your going. To have pain" take Advil. Office personnel are a cluster of incompetent,indifferent and inconsiderate individuals. Screw up upon screw up with follow up tests. The response of the doctor and the staff is "these things happens, not a big deal. When the results afffect the course of your treatment for cancer I find that indifferent attitude appalling. Multiple episodes where needed drainage of painful seromas. Doctor G indifferent to the pain and at one point suggested massage. Radiologist then had to aspirated 3 areas of fluid collection in the breast as well as axilla. Rude and obnoxious treatment of a patent seems to be acceptable behavior for Dr G and her staff. I chose MSK based on its prestigious reputation for the best cancer care. I am sorely disappointed I worked as a RN for 38 years and never saw a patient treated so poorly, rudely and incompetently. The patient was always of paramount importance. Not so with this surgeon and her staff.
I went for a second opinion with this doctor. I found her to be unprepared despite the fact that I sent all my records in 10 days prior. I had no out of network so paid $1400 to hear an overall explanation of all the variables in dcis rather than specifics to my issue. A nurse called me days later with pathology results no follow up from doctor so no questions answered. Additionally I was told the consult would be as long as necessary but the doctor rushed us out of her office telling us that 'other patients were waiting'. She may be good but I found no reason to use her services. Also the entire place is run like a mill you are number
Seven years ago, I was very fortunate to meet Dr. Gemignani, who saved my life. My surgery was very successful and her professional skills are unparalleled. Her compassion for her patients goes a long way, as well. Ten days ago, when I had to have another surgery, she greeted me as if I was a member of her family. The surgery was done very well. I actually felt no pain post-surgery. I referred many women to her care and every one of those women walked away very happy. They were very grateful to Dr. Gemignani. Dr. Gemignani is an excellent specialist of her field and a very kind and compassionate individual. If anyone should ever need a breast oncologist, she is the number-one, go-to specialist. Go to her with confidence.
She saved my life. Caring, compassionate and never discounts what my concerns are; she takes action and deserves huge respect for her knowledge . What an amazing individual. I would highly recommend her.
