I think Dr. Esserman is one of the best breast cancer physicians in the world. As i navigate my second diagnosis after 20 years I am grateful to have Dr. Esserman and UCSF as my team.

providing information about what one can and cannot do before the procedure could be helpful. the more walking through the staff can do the more trust is created. also overlong a seditative before biopsy should also be standard care. it's a long and traumatic day to have several aggressive poke and prodes on an already sensitive area of the body.

As noted above I really appreciated Dr. Esserman's review and assessment of my situation. UCSF is not covered by my insurance so I would get long-term care there. I would have to understand if being two hours late and providing no apology or explanation was her common treatment of patients before I would see her again.

She is a very caring Dr. Even though her busy schedule she response to my messages. She is very confident and kind to her patient. Before the surgery she sang a song to made me relax and peaceful and no worry. I was appreciated very much.

Dr Esserman has been amazing and I will continue to send referrals as I have already done. Her care has exceeded all my expectations.

I hadn't realized there would be a male resident in the room during the exam. I would've felt more comfortable being asked permission. I understand it's a teaching hospital and cared that he have the experience so I didn't say anything but it was uncomfortable for me to have a young man there during a breast exam when I hadn't been expecting it and had specifically wanted a female provider.

Laura Esserman is the best there is and having confidence in your doctor is to me the most important thing when going through cancer treatment. For years I have seen [name redacted] and she always gave me the same level of confidence.

What I noticed the most was how Dr. Esserman was able to quickly ask me questions that re-enaged me in making decisions about my surgery. I had assumed based on visits with other doctors that I must have a masectomy. She asked questions and provided information that made it clear to me that I have the choice of a lumpectomy which I now have decided to have. All the way home I was feeling elated and could not keep from bursting into song. WOW what a turn of events! Thank you!!!

I love that Dr. Esserman knows about all the latest research and trials and feel that I am getting the best possible care with her. She also has great interpersonal skills - love that she hugs me and seems to really care about me as a person.
