The Breast Institute Testimonials
We are filled with relief and so much gratitude for the love and support we have received over the past six months. What an important reminder that none of us have to go through anything difficult alone. I can honestly say that I have never experienced such an amazing collaboration of doctors, nurses, healers, and caregivers in one place. I know that Tammy's extraordinary recovery is at least in part the result of the nurturance and top notch care she received at NWH, from the moment we walked through the door to her final exit from the hospital a few days later. As her partner, I was also impressed by the attention paid to myself and our children to ensure that all of our feelings and concerns were meaningfully addressed throughout this difficult process.
I was particularly impressed by the shift in focus towards an aesthetic experience and outcome without compromising the rigour of surgical oncology. The journey of a breast cancer patient is unlikely to ever be easy, but I am certain this journey is much enhanced by the elegant environment, complementary treatments and close collaboration between breast & plasic surgery that the Institute offers. Finally, it is obvious you have a team that is not only highly skilled but who is also very proud to be part of the Institute. This was reflected by the medical, nursing, and administrative staff in their welcoming and warm attitude towards me throughout my visit.
I doubt there is enough room on this form for the kinds of details which deserve to be given the highest of praise. From Dr. Karen Arthur to Dr. Danielle Pytell, the entire staff, the care, skill and compassion which I experienced throughout - from diagnosis to post surgery leave me humbled and thankful.
Dr.Vasile is amazing not only as a surgeon but as a person, and I mean [it when I say] how invaluable the Northern Westchester Hospital experience was for my family and I.My best/favorite nurse Marin has so much compassion, whatever patients get her are in good hands.....kudos to Northern Westchester Hospital!!!!
