Hearing those three little words, “you have cancer” literally turned my world upside down. I felt that I, nor my life, would never be the same…that I would be encased in a fog of fear and sadness forever. The day I walked into Dr. Danielle Le Blanc’s office that fog started to lift. Her office staff was incredibly kind and seemed truly sensitive to what I was going through as a breast cancer patient. I asked if my family could come with me to the exam room, and the answer was, “OF COURSE!” accompanied by a big smile. I breathed a sigh of relief – it’s the little things during the journey that mean so much. We got settled in the room, and there was a knock at the door. The most precious person with the warmest smile popped her head in to ask if I was ready, and from that very moment on, Dr. Le Blanc has been on my “BEST FRIENDS FOREVER” list. Honestly, I consider her part of my family.
She immediately put me (and my family) at ease and comforted us that day in a way that is hard to put into words. Her expertise, empathy, and professionalism combined with her down to earth, kind, and witty personality made for the perfect first appointment! As she educated us about reconstruction and what to expect on the road ahead, we ALL knew we were in the right place with the right person! We left that appointment very different than when we walked in…the fear and the sadness were replaced with smiles and relief.
Dr. Le Blanc is an artist inside AND outside of the operating room…check out her amazing drawing in her waiting room. I had a bilateral mastectomy followed by expander to implant reconstruction along with nipple reconstruction and tattooing of the nipples and areolas. I LOVE my reconstructed breasts! I could not be happier with the results! Dr. Le Blanc gave me back (an even better version of) what cancer took away.
Since my surgery, if there has ever been anything causing me to worry, Dr. Le Blanc and her staff have always been so kind to talk me through it or even have me come in the office to put my mind at ease. I ALWAYS feel valued and loved as a patient of Dr. Le Blanc’s. It has been almost seven years since I was diagnosed, and I seriously look so forward to going to my follow up appointments to see her and her sweet staff!
Thank you, Dr. Le Blanc, for being so much more than just my doctor! Thank you for being an incredible surgeon, an amazing human being, a precious friend, and for helping me through one of the biggest challenges of my life!
In a dirty fight with breast cancer, Dr Le Blanc made me look and feel beautiful. While working to conquer fears of the unknown, she encouraged me to be strong, confident and empowered! I am not the only one who knows what a unique find she is, amidst an overwhelming arena of doctors – ask around! A powerful combination of talent & empathy, intelligence & understanding, patience & passion, her devotion to her patients far exceeds any standard of care. Her huge heart is not only reflected in her work and personal guidance, but also in her after hours advocacy. If you’re looking for a doctor with integrity, you’ve found her!
