I am 41 and started getting mammograms while I was in college, due to a lump I found then. So, I've been to many Doctors in the last 20 years. I was referred to Dr. Auda by my OB/GYN after I had her examine a lump in my left breast. Though she didn't know Dr. Auda, she said he was located close to where I live. So, I went. , They found a lump in the left breast and did a Mammogram followed by an Ultra sound followed by another Mammogram, this time a Paddle Mammogram. (all in one day) I was then told to go home and wait for the Radiologist to read the Paddle Mammogram. I was then called and asked to do a Paddle Mammogram. I told the receptionist that I had already done one the week before. so she looked and sure enough it had obviously never been read. So, then they wanted me to come in for a second ultrasound which would then lead up to a Static Biopsy. I went in for the biopsy and was told the lump was no longer there. I wasn't given any information as to why it wasn't there, it just wasn't. I was then billed for the Static biopsy $600 that was never performed. Long story short, the lump is still there, the one they said wasn't and I'm going to another Breast specialist. I felt like the office was very disorganized and overbooked with waiting patients due to the extremely long wait and the communication was horrible and the billing was unethical.

I've been to see several associates in Dr. A's office, as well as Dr. Auda, himself. Eveyone has been professional. I don't know what the changes are, but something is different recently about how the office is run. It is even easier to get in and out of the visit than before. A visit to this kind of doctor is traumatic enough; the people in this office make it easier.

I was referred to Dr. Auda by my gynecologist's office. At the time, I didn't realize how important that referral was. His associate, Dr. Anita Johnson, made the official diagnosis of breast cancer. After chemotherapy, Dr. Auda performed the lumpectomy. Since then, several doctors have told me that I had the best doctor possible. My experience bears out that this is true.
