I was called by Kristen the next day with all of the dates and times of my pre-op and post-op appointments as well as the date for my double mastectomy!!
My next appointment was my pre-op that was handled by his nurse, Hayley. This was another spectacular experience. Hayley and my husband are both from St. Louis, MO so we formed a special personal connection with her! She patiently explained everything that would happen with Dr. Piazza during my surgery. She took the time to explain things I would feel, and what not to do after surgery. Hayley made me feel that everyone at The Piazza Center was definitely on my team. It may sound cliché, but the team makes you feel safe, secure and confident. They make you feel totally at ease.
When the day of surgery finally arrived, I came to St. David’s Medical Center. I was greeted by Dr. Piazza and my breast surgeon. They both explained again what would happen. I never felt like I was just “another” surgery. A few moments later, I was whisked away.
