"I am grateful every day that Dr. Mia Talmor is my reconstruction surgeon. I have had two surgeries with her, a double nipple sparing mastectomy and a touch up surgery and her work is incredible. I have had lots of physicians tell me how lucky I am to have the result I have and I respond that I chose well! She cares deeply about her patients, is very personable and compassionate and also professional and a brilliant surgeon. You can tell she loves what she does and is proud of her work. She is responsive on email and takes time to answer your questions. Meagan and Catherine, who work in her office, are outstanding and so helpful every step of the way."
