"THANK YOU to the ENTIRE TEAM for changing my life and never leaving my side throughout this this journey!! Due to a genetic mutation (BRCA2) and an extensive family history of cancer, I elected to have a prophylactic mastectomy with immediate DIEP flap reconstruction. Dr. Albright and Katie discussed all options with my husband and I, and realistic expectations were outlined. Together, they listened to my wishes, concerns and fears with patience and respect. I felt safe, relevant and a sense of calm was finally achieved in my life during a very trying time. The results are impressively beautiful and natural. The surgery was meticulous, requiring the highest level of surgical excellence and precision, which Dr. Albright naturally possesses. The brilliance of his work is reflected in my results. I have never felt so guided and cared for by a physician and I am blessed that I found the surgeon for me. One that is with you every step of the way!"
