Dr. Stephanie Valente is absolutely phenomenal. She has been my doctor for three years, thru four surgeries and other procedures. She cares, she listens, she is proactive but not paranoid, she respects me as a person, and she treats me as an individual. I have been treated at the Clinic for about 15 years, including cancer twice, and I think she is one of the best doctors in the whole system.

Dr. Valente is an amazing surgeon, but more importantly she's an amazing person!! She spent a lot of time with me, explaining my condition, my options, the procedure and all the possibilities after surgery. She saw me in the afternoon after doing 3 surgeries and she still was calm and focused on me! I felt so sure about her!

Dr. Valente is amazing! she is kind, caring and she totally treated me as a person. she recognized my anxiety and did what she could to ease the anxiety...ordering further testing even before I left the building and calling me before days end to give me the results. I can now say that in addition to her reputation as an excellent surgeon, we must include her sensitivity and kindness.

always prompt in response to calls. I travel from Arizona and have had to adjust my appointments. Dr Valenti's office took my circumstances with travel into consideration and found a spot for me on her calendar in coordination with my oncologist and radiologist appointments

I traveled from Arizona after having a less than pleasant consultation with a breast surgeon I researched and found Dr Valenti. I have never regretted the decision having her as my physician. she is professional, has a kind and caring bedside manner. I pray to God I never have to have breast cancer surgery again but if this be my path, I would want Dr Valenti to be my surgeon. I trust her implicitly

Even though my pathology results were still pending, Dr Valente was willing to give her time answering questions I had. Dr. Valente fulfilled her promise and oersonallycalled me at home and shared my pathology results with me over the phone. she released my record immediately prior to the call and went through the report with me and guided me through the results to make sure I understood them. Dr. Valente willingly answered all questions I had.
