I was diagnosed at age 38 with Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer on 7/14/14. I went from a scary place in my life to feeling blessed & feeling like this was meant to be. I was referred to Dr. Eric Wimmers by my other Breast Surgeon Dr. Enrique Alvarez. The day that I walked in for my first consult with Dr. Wimmers I was calm, felt confident. We discussed the options for Breast Reconstruction. MD took his time explaining each option, he was thorough and answered any question or concerns.
I opted to do B/L DIEP Flap Surgery; recovery was long but it was worth it; if I had to go through DIEP flap surgery again I would do it all over!! I couldn’t be happier with the way I look I’m overjoyed!! When a physician treats you like a team member & embraces the shared decision making process, you have not only trust but friendships & respect for your medical team. I applaud each & every doctor who traveled this journey with me. I’m a patient advocate for other women who are seeking information about breast reconstruction, surgery, healing & recovery. I would not be doing this outreach had I not had a good experience with my breast cancer team. My experience with Dr. Eric Wimmers has been wonderful, he’s fabulous, he has been another angel!! I’m delighted with the way I look & loving my second chance at life! Dr. Eric Wimmers provides Compassionate Care Before, During & After Your Breast Reconstruction Surgery. Thank You Dr. Wimmers I’m so happy with results & that I was referred to you!!
