Dr. Abu-Rustum is the gold standard. Simply the BEST! I underwent a radical trachelectomy in 2008 and in 2016 had a minimally invasive procedure done by him. He is kind, compassionate and brilliant. ALL of the nurses in MSKCC commented about how amazing he is. He came to visit me BEFORE my procedure to make sure I was okay and to ask if I had any questions. My nurse said that she'd been at MSKCC for over 30 years and he is one of the few surgeons who sees patients before surgery. I trust him implicitly. If you are diagnosed with cancer, and are able to see Dr. Abu-Rustum, you are one of the lucky ones.

Dr. Abu Rustum is everything you could want in a doctor. He is kind and gentle, so you feel at ease in his presence and can relax regarding whatever procedure you have to have done. He is very skilled and knowledgeable, so you know you are in good hands. I'm actually looking forward to seeing him again soon even though cancer is scary, it helps having such a wonderful and kind doctor.

Dr. Abu-Rustum is an amazingly skilled surgeon. He came highly recommended before my surgery. He lived up to his reputation and is a miracle-worker!

If you're lucky enough to be treated by Dr. Abu-Rustum, you're in good hands. He performed surgery on me to remove some endometriosis. Excellent surgeon and doctor.

This is the only doctor I trust. Really talented. If you have gyn/oncology problem - Sloan-Kettering is the only place and try to get Abu-Rustum. Outstanding office and staff as well!

I've met many GYN/ONC in NYC and in Westchester County and I never felt comfortable with any of them. They had me dead by 40 from the BRCA 1 mutation and visiting their offices just added to my stress and increased my anxieties. I am so happy that I met Dr. Abu-Rustum last week. He treated me like a person, cared, took a lot of time with me because I was nervous wreck, and he gave me the stats and info I needed in order to make the right decision about removing my ovaries prophylactically. Brilliant man with awesome bedside manner. I hardly even felt the pelvic exam! When the time is right, I will have surgery with him.

Dr. Abu Rustum is a kind, compassionate doctor and I have no doubts about his surgical skills. But as a person looking for advice because I am high risk for breast/ovarian cancer, he gave me a lot of horror stories and not a lot of statistics. I don't appreciate that.

I had prophylactic ovary removal, with minimally invasive surgery, by this physician last week. I left the hospital the same day. No overnight stay. All pain manageable. He was ralistic with me about rate of recovery. When I went back for my check-up, I was seen on time and out within 20 minutes.
