We are so lucky to have the best Breast Care Center!
I love how the rooms are decorated; makes me feel pampered and special. All of the staff are great but Nicole is one of the nicest and sweetest people I have ever met. I don't mind the drive knowing she is there.
I'd like to thank Dr. Anne O'Dea. She is real, she is thorough, she really does a good job explaining things to me. And the other person is her assistant Nicole. She will sit there and you can ask her any question you want. If it takes you a half hour, 20 minutes, even 45 minutes, she will explain everything to you. Those two are the best. I really have learned a lot from them, things I didn't know and nobody ever told me. If it wasn't for those two, I would not know it today. So I really have enjoyed going there and I thank God every day that they're there.
"They are very caring and make you feel at ease. And they answered any questions that we needed to know and they made me just feel that the procedure was going to go very well.
"Everyone is so compassionate. This place should raise my blood pressure but instead it lowers it. Great Job!"
"Awesome atmosphere and they spent time answering questions!"
"Nicole gave the most thorough breast exam I have ever had. She also listened to artery in neck, which was just part of a good health exam."
