    Subject:  Lumpectomy MSK
    Comment:  Dr. Pilewski performed my lumpectomy maybe 3 years ago. I found her to be so thoughtful and meticulous in her treatment and care of me that I felt as if I really shouldn't have put in so much worry about the surgical end of things. Believe it or not, I found the biopsy WAY more uncomfortable than the surgery. Even up to a couple of years after the procedure, Dr. Pilewski was still checking on me. She's great and she instills confidence in her ability and the procedure.One thing I wished I had asked ahead of time was for her to make all efforts to leave a very minimal scar if possible at all. At the time, that was the least of my concerns.Another thing that really put me at ease was the MSK facility and staff. It was by far the best hospital experience I've EVER had. They are not robotic or too busy for you; they actually speak to you with kindness and empathy. You're almost thrown off your "fear" game because of it.
