Reconstruction After Lumpectomy – Portland, OR
I originally went to a plastic surgeon recommended by a friend. He gasped when he saw my right breast – it felt terrible that he couldn’t hide his disgust. He then blamed my oncologist that he did not warn me that my tissue would shrink and darken the way it did. I told him that my life was the priority, and I was not thinking about how I would look after, and was glad he hadn’t focused on that aspect either. I left in tears. His receptionist saw me and followed me into the hall. She suggested I meet with Dr. Sheldon Cober. I did so and couldn’t have been happier with our initial meeting, his concern, the time he took to answer my questions, the follow up and the work he did in general. In addition, he has a sense of humor and never made me feel ashamed of how I looked, or ashamed that I was choosing a cosmetic treatment. Everyone in his office were also friendly and professional. I have moved on from that dark time in my life, but recommend Dr. Cober very highly to anyone who is looking for a kind and skilled doctor.
