*Dr. King is an excellent surgeon/doctor. She was pleased with my 6 mo. follow up to my surgery and was very good explaining my most recent mammogram and ultrasound results. There is an area of potential concern and she very thoroughly explained everything including ongoing monitoring and possible future action if needed. I feel very comfortable with her and have complete confidence w/her.
