As a patient, when you hear the words “breast cancer,” your heart stops for a moment and you feel the blood rush from your face.
Not long after receiving that news, I was in Dr. Tenley Lawton’s office. Dr. Lawton was warm yet knowledgeable as we began to discuss reconstructive surgery, options, and the perspectives regarding each option. It was a scary time but talking with her about all the personal details seemed easy. I felt my shoulders come down and I was soon keenly aware that I was in good hands, and with a very talented plastic surgeon.
Dr. Lawton explained all facets of the reconstruction clearly and by the day of the bi-lateral mastectomy, I felt extremely confident in her abilities. I was stunned as the surgery and recuperation were much more manageable than I had anticipated.
The surgeries that followed were absolute successes as well.
Dr. Lawton has an artistic eye coupled with a precision that produces beautiful results and reveals that she is truly a top notch plastic surgeon.
And her staff...
They are compassionate, caring, and always professional, yet I felt as if they were my friends throughout this entire journey. I actually looked forward to my doctor’s appointments!
I thank the entire staff for guiding me through this unforgettable time in my life.
I feel so very lucky to have been under Dr. Lawton’s care.
With much appreciation and warm regard,
