This was the first time I met Dr. Yutzie. I was referred to her on an urgent basis for surgery. Every encounter I had with her was great. I felt confident in her and comfortable with her immediately upon meeting her and discussing my surgery to take place urgently the next day. Very happy with her!

Dr. Yutzie is wonderful. This is the second time she has performed a lumpectomy on me. I wouldn't consider having anyone else do it! [...] When she found out that I could have breast cancer again she called me and set up my visit with her. She's the one who gave me my results. After surgery she called me again with the tissue reports and set up my next appt with her. I really love and appreciate her, her talent, her kind and caring attitude, her concern for me and my well being.
