“When I was unexpectedly diagnosed with breast cancer after a routine mammogram, the shock and realisation of the journey ahead was without a doubt confronting and scary. Dr Cindy Mak was highly recommended to me and within two days of diagnosis, I was sitting in her waiting room with my head spinning about the unknown. My initial fears were immediately lessened when I met Dr Mak as I knew instantly from her thoughtful words that I was in the hands of an expert oncologist and surgeon.
Her caring succinct explanations of the various stages of my treatment were precise, calm and positive and the post-operative results of her incredible surgical skills were highly praised by all follow up doctors and nurses. I am forever grateful that she has helped me back to full health and I also feel incredibly lucky to be in the ongoing care of such a brilliant physician.”
“The immense fear and stress I felt upon my diagnosis was put at ease upon my first appointment with Dr Cindy Mak. Her calm and professional manner when discussing the approach to my treatment plan made me feel safe and I knew then that she was the right surgeon choice for me. The team of professionals Dr Cindy aligns with are what I referred to as the “A team” during my 18 months of treatment which involved Surgery, Chemo, Radiation and Herceptin.
I will be forever grateful the nurse who ultrasounded me on diagnosis and recommended Dr Cindy, stating “she is known within this hospital to deliver the best surgery results”! I was blessed to have such a terrific experienced team of Doctors looking out for me it made it a lot easier to cope and recover.”
“I was very fortunate to benefit from the incredible care of Dr Cindy Mak after being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2016. Dr Mak combines first class surgical ability with brilliant communication skills – a rare blend. She also has a genuine warmth and deep empathy that I (and my husband) found extremely comforting at a very stressful time.
Being the consummate professional that she is, Dr Mak has wonderful contacts and after she performed a double mastectomy, referred me to an amazing plastic, reconstructive and cosmetic surgeon. I can strongly recommend Dr Mak to anyone who is looking not just for the best in her field, but also wants to be cared for by a kind and compassionate human being.”
“Dr Mak was my first point of contact after receiving my breast cancer diagnosis. It was at a time when my world had just been turned upside down, I didn’t know what it all meant and I didn’t know what the future held. But Dr Mak soon became a great source of stability during such a turbulent time, offering an empathetic, confident and meticulous approach to my surgical treatment.
I took great comfort in this, and particularly Dr Mak’s consideration of my plans for a family, taking the time to explain what her approach meant for me in the short and long term. Dr Mak came highly recommended to me and I am forever grateful for everything she has done.”
