good

October 11, 2016

Dr. Ahrendt treats me with a genuine kindness, concern and compassion. I feel very pleased with the treatment I am receiving. She explains things very well and is sure to answer my questions. A breast cancer diagnosis brings the patient to a unfamiliar journey full of emotion, confusion and concern. I have truly felt valued as a patient, where all of my concerns are being met. I feel confident in having Dr. Ahrendt as my surgeon.

Dr. Ahrendt is the best of the best. She always gives explanations in a focused, caring, intelligent manner. I would and do recommend her to every woman I know who knows someone experiencing breast cancer. Oh yes, and she's an excellent surgeon!

Dr. Ahrendt spent a great deal of time with us explaining my options. And was very sensitive to my concerns regarding my rheumatoid arthritis issues.

Dr. Arendhts was very professional while maintaining her compassion and empathy for me. I never felt like I didn't matter to her than anything other than a human being who needed her help. She never made me feel like just a number, or just another patient. Much appreciation is felt for Dr. Arendhts care!

My experience with Dr. Gretchen Ahrendt was excellent. She spent close to an hour of her time thoroughly explaining my health situation to my husband and myself. We so appreciated her expertise and I look forward to becoming a patient under her care...I feel I will be in excellent hands.
