20/08/09 5 4 5 5 Today was my 6 month post bilateral mastectomy surgery check up with Dr. Paz. He is truly amazing. What I love about him is that he is interested in not just treating Cancer, but to empowering Women to "Live Well." It is not just about surviving and keeping it from coming back, but I'm I "Living Well."? We are all going to die at some point, don't live your life to Survive, live your life to Live Well. Enjoy Life. What am I doing to make a difference? How have I changed my life? From diet to exercise to peace of mind and joy. It was such a great conversation, and I left feeling so incredibly good. From this day forward I will live my life well, and be grateful for every day that I'm here!

05/01/09 5 5 5 5 Dr. Paz is the most caring and knowledgeable surgeon by whom I could have ever hoped of being cared for. He takes so much time to explain exactly what is going on and has the bedside manner of an angel. One can tell he loves his job, as his "work hours" are not limited to 8-5. He even made a 2 am hospital room visit to see how I was doing after his surgery was completed for the night. He saved my life and I will be sure to recommend him to ANYONE who is diagnosed with breast cancer.
