Dr. Uribasterra listened to my concerns and discussed all the possible options with me very clearly. He is patient, reassuring and very skilled. (I looked him up on the internet before my operation and found nothing but good things about him. He's done studies in his field and had papers published.) He is a fine surgeon in addition to being a very kind and caring, always professional, physician. He also is a doctor who believes in saving the ovaries if possible, and indeed, in minimizing treatment to what's best for the patient. He also was willing to help me work out a discount plan, as I have no insurance, and had his office staff work out discounts with the hospital and anesthesiologist.
Dr. Uribasterra performed a total abdominal hysterectomy on me after having me on Lupron for 3 months in order to reduce the size of the fibroid and the necessary incision. The surgery went exceptionally well and Dr. Uribasterra spoke to me afterward, explaining how it had gone.
