Dr. Peled’s skill, experience, compassion and ability to listen and communicate are amazing! She took time with me, answered questions, explained options and provided visual images to help me understand. I felt confident and ready for surgery; everything went extremely well! Follow up was excellent, with visits to manage each stage of healing. Her team was great too! Before I met Dr. Peled, I was very apprehensive about the surgery. I’m so grateful to have found her and highly recommend her!
Dr. Peled's work is wonderful. I am breast cancer free and look almost exactly like I did before. The office procedures are sometimes delayed - such as getting your surgery scheduled and getting responses to questions. I was picking my new breasts out 15 minutes before surgery. However, that seems often the case with a brilliant surgeon, which Dr. Peled is. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Peled's experience, confidence & compassion made my decision to have a preventative double mastectomy unexpectedly easy especially given a newer procedure she recommended where implants were immediate reducing my recovery from 3-4 months to 4-6 weeks and from multiple to one surgery. The procedure went exactly as she explained and at 4 weeks I'm back to 90% mobility, externally my breasts are intact with 75% sensation and improvement continues. She was truly a gift at a very scary time.
