When I was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 50, I knew I needed to find a surgeon who not only had outstanding clinical skill, but a caring and compassionate bedside manner. I found that in Dr. Preya Ananthakrishnan, Director of Breast Surgery at White Plains Hospital. When I met with her, I got this feeling that came over me—this warm, peaceful, good feeling about this doctor. I walked out of there educated. I knew my decision without being scared out of my mind. I knew I was in the best of hands.
