mastitis

A patient of hers gave me her name. Online it says she is an expert of breast diseases. When I call for an appointment, I was refused because she doesn't handle chronic mastitis.

Alma (a patient)

Dr. Nella Shapiro is an excellent Breast Surgeon. She genuinely cares about each and everyone of her patients. Her bedside manners are remarkable. I'm very thankful that she is my breast doctor. With so many women being diagnosed with breast cancer, early detection is so important and may potentially safe your life. Please, if you have not had your mammogram or your breast exam recently, don't hesitate to make an appointment with her. I lost my youngest sister at the age of 44 to breast cancer.
