A breast cancer diagnosis can be devastating to the patient and family. Dr. Cocilovo understands. When she was a young girl, Dr. Cocilovo’s mother received this life-changing diagnosis. Dr. Cocilovo brings her experience and empathy to every patient she encounters. In addition to being a brilliant surgeon, Dr. Cocilovo makes a lifetime commitment to her patients. She frequently calls her patients to check on their condition and to inquire about the impact of the experience on family members. It is no wonder her patients esteem and admire her, and are so generous with their philanthropy to help other women and their families overcome the difficulties of breast cancer.
