Dr. Dumanian is the rare surgeon who is not only an excellent technician, but a warm and compassionate human being. During my reconstruction after a double mastectomy, Dr. Dumanian provided excellent advice on the procedure that was best suited to me, and then executed on the reconstruction to give me an outstanding result. This path has not been without setbacks, but through many months of interaction, he has listened carefully, given me honest and empathetic guidance and ultimately the absolute best surgical result I could have hoped for.

I would have liked for him to show me the closure, and the healing progress of the closure. Not a lot of interaction, but maybe not necessary. Never got a difinitive answer about wearing the neck brace. Or, if I can take a complete shower. Maybe I'll call back or wait to talk to the PA.
