When my husband and I interviewed Dr. Passaretti prior to a preventative double mastectomy due to my very high risk of breast cancer, we joked that he looked a little “too perfect.” We had just moved back from Los Angeles, and we regarded him as “very LA.” Then we reflected on my age (40), and how these reconstruction results will hopefully have to last me near half a century. “Let’s go with perfectionism!” we said. 
We couldn’t be happier with the experience. 
First: expertise. My breast surgeon, Dr. Helen Pass, had recommended only two doctors – Dr. Passaretti being one. She had said he performed the best follow-up work, paying extraordinary attention to detail. Accurate, absolutely. Now that I am through the five months of recovery, I feel (and look) merely as though I had opted for a so-called Mommy Makeover. Scars barely visible, symmetrical, you’d never know about the mastectomies.
 Second: patient experience. Dr. Passaretti may look “LA,” but he’s remarkably down to earth, very low key, and funny. His nurse, Shannon, was wonderful and so sweet. Even reception (Kelly) and office manager (Gerri) are lovely – warm and personable. Just the sort of people you’d want guiding you through a process like this. Five stars aren’t enough
