I became a patient of the Breast Reconstruction Center of New Jersey in February 2014, shortly after I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Originally I was under the care of a breast surgeon in East Windsor, NJ who I really liked, and she referred me to a plastic surgeon she worked with. After meeting with the referral surgeon and seeing pictures of the women he operated on, I left his office in tears. Obviously, I was not at all pleased with what I saw. Being diagnosed with breast cancer was devastating to me and I knew that I had to find a new breast surgeon and plastic surgeon right away. Fortunately, my boss referred me to the Breast Reconstruction Center of New Jersey, where I met with Dr. Elliott of Montclair Breast Center and then Dr. Rosen of The Plastic Surgery Group.
I left my very first visit at BRC feeling extremely confident in their ability to operate on me with great success, and I was right! Everyone at this breast care facility made sure I was fully informed of exactly what my next steps were, beginning with the breast surgery to remove the cancer to the reconstructive surgery that would take place the same day. Everyone at BRC thoroughly answered all of my questions and completely prepared me for my surgery. They scheduled all the scans that were needed, and they made the introduction to my oncologist.
Dr. Elliott and Dr. Rosen are an amazing team and my entire experience was outstanding! Their years of expertise and the way in which they treat their patients gave me such confidence that everything would be fine. I have been to many doctors in my lifetime, but I have never met staff as friendly and helpful as the staff under Dr. Elliott and Dr. Rosen. It was also great not having to be admitted to a hospital. The Breast Reconstruction Center of New Jersey was a wonderful experience from beginning to end, and the ambulatory Surgery Center is spotless, sterile and clean, which was very important to me. I have experienced renowned medical facilities that were not up to this standard.
I don't know how I would have found a team of doctors who cared for me the way BRC did. They got me through such a difficult time in my life. I would refer anyone in need of a breast surgeon or a plastic surgeon to the Breast Reconstruction Center of New Jersey. They are FABULOUS!!!
