I went in not sure what I was going to do. Dr. Kiernan was compassionate and understanding and helped me weigh the pros and cons and feel good about my ultimate decision to have the surgery. She take the time to make sure I understood each step of the process and walked me through the risks and research. I am glad she is going to be my surgeon.
