She goes above and beyond expectations. When I had surgery in 2020, when she discovered my internal organs werent where they were supposed to be, rather than cutting my entire left side open to get to my kidney, she took an extra 1 1/2 hrs. to position me so she could robotically perform the less invasive procedure. She had been doing surgeries all day and she wasnt finished with mine until 8:30 PM...and she had another one after that. My surgery was supposed to take 3-4 hours and instead took 5-6 due to having to completely reposition me on the table in order to do the robotic procedure which was much easier for me to recover from. A lot of doctors would not have done that after such a long day. Shes the best!!!
