    Burke, Dr. Dennis
    I have seen him a couple of times over the last several years but this has been my first surgery with him. He is superb and very responsive. He is very good as a surgeon and I found him to be the best after checking around. I find him to be a first rated surgeon.

    The prep work for breast surgery is brutal.  One undergos a nuclear medicine procedure in which radioactive material is inserted into the body to  identify the lead lymph node that will be removed to see if the cancer has spread.  If it is clean they do not remove additional ones.  Then they insert metal rods in the area that the surgeon will remove followed up with a mammogram.  If you can survive this process you can survive anything.  At the initial appointment the surgeon (part of the Oncology Team) sat down with me and explained the procedures and the what ifs.  She also made  drawings to explain the steps of the surgery.  I view her annual follow-up exams/visits and mammograms  as a bridge to a healthy life.

    Boyd, Christopher G
    My primary care doctor referred me to Dr. Boyd to evaluate body lumps. Dr. Boyd was friendly, on-time, and has a good sense of humor. Following his diagnosis, we arranged to have the lypoma surgically removed at BIDMC in Needham. The Dr. and the staff made the operation go smoothly. During the 1.5 hours while on the table, he joked and led me through the procedure. Later that day, he called to follow-up. A good experience, and surprisingly all went right on schedule.

    Scott, Dr. Shikora
    Excellent skills as a surgeon as well as his bedside manner.  Hopefully, I wont ever have to use him again, but if I do I would certainly only have Dr. Shikora perform surgery on me.He has a very relaxed personality, he explained everything in great detail. and most importantly the surgery went without a hitch!

    Three consult meetings with Dr. Josef Simon over a year to understand expectations and risks of spinal fusion surgery.  Scheduled, then postponed surgery for 6 months to try one last physical therapy option.  Finally, had excellent experience with surgery, hospital stay, and aftercare.  Simon is smart, talented, understanding, human.

    Anne, Dr. Johnson H.
    I felt like she really listened and I really liked her. She was always great! She warned me that it would be a difficult recovery and it was, but she really helped me through it and made it easier for me. She is very respectful.

    Moore, Dr Francis D., Jr.
    Dr. Moore removed my cancerous thyroid and parathyroids in April 2008. My case was unusually complicated because of the extent of the disease. The procedure went very smoothly with only predictable recovery pain. The only negative, in his words: "I'm sorry but I can't make your scar line up with the wrinkle on your neck..." Obviously he and I have the same sense of humor.

    Boston Medical Center
    I see several practitioners in this facility and they have all done an excellent job. I've had surgeries done and so far, everything has been great. It was for ulnar nerve entrapment. Everything was excellent. I had a very difficult surgery with them six years ago but they seem to have gotten their act together now. Regarding availability, I did have to wait. With this kind of surgery, the sooner it's done, the better the outcome and I did have to wait almost two months to be scheduled.

    Peter J. Lydon, M.D., F.A.C.S.
    Went very well, no complications, no drama. Scheduling was easy, and Dr. Lydon could not have been nicer. He took the time to explain the surgery in advance, and sent me home with plenty to read. I was at ease at all times.

    Matthew Hutter MD,MPH
    I didn't meet him until after the surgery, but he spent a lot of time with me explaining things to me. He didn't talk down to me at all and explained things in a way that they could be easily understood. I went in as an emergency patient, which is why I didn't meet with him beforehand.
