very dissatisfied

This surgeon butchered me during abreast biopsy. He was arrogant and rude and did not answer my questions, and then, he removed most of my breast for a biopsy. Now I don't feel comfortable at all in my clothes.

Compassion and facts when I needed it most.

I was so fortunate to have Dr. Hamling be my referral surgeon. He was a straight shooter but was sympathic and decisive about some complications I had from a breast biopsy. His nurse was fabulous as well.

A Real Blessing

I just reached my 5 year cancer free anniversary. Dr Hamling did my lumpectomy and through the last 5 years Dr Hamling and Janice, his nurse, have been like family to me. They were even there when my daughter had a problem and worked with her like family also. In my opinion, they are the greatest example of what a doctor and nurse should be. I recommend them to everyone!
