Lanham, Mary M MD - Ob-Gyn Assoc
(770) 422-8700 72 Plaza Way NW , Marietta, GA
I was referred to Dr. Lanham in late (Nov/Dec) 2001. I was having severe cramping, but not bleeding, every other period. On my first visit, after speaking with me at length, Dr. Lanham said that she didn't think it was anything serious, BUT that she wanted to rule out any serious issues immediately, and she gave me an ultrasound that day. It showed that the lining of my endometrius was way thicker than normal. She scheduled a biopsy for shortly after that, once again to rule OUT cancer, and the biopsy came back as being pre-cancerous. Based on my age (52) she suggested a complete hysterectomy, and decided to call in a gyne-onc JUST IN CASE they found more during the surgery. She referred me to him and he said that, in his opinion, I already had endometrial cancer. Surgery was scheduled for March, 2002, and the biopsy following the hysterectomy confirmed that it was, in deed, cancer. Because it was caught early, I did not have to undergo radiation or chemotherapy.
This March will be my 5 year anniversary with (hopefully!) no recurrence thanks to Dr. Lanham's pro-active care. In addition to being a great, thorough doctor, she was also remarkably easy to talk to and very understanding. While I have not seen her since (I remained under the care of the gyne-onc and then moved to SE Georgia), I can not recommend her highly enough.
