True patient Testimonials for Dr Serrato:


I feel very blessed to have been in the good care of Dr. Claire Serrato this year and a successful robotic Myomectomy at Mills Peninsula Hospital performed by her in July and wanted to share a testimonial. 
I had been suffering for many years with painful periods and cramping and finally in April 2013 had diagnostic ultrasound and MRI which diagnosed very large fibroids.I was referred to Dr. Serrato for the most effective surgical and treatment plan for my fibroid removal.  Within the week I was scheduled for a diagnostic and consultative visit at Dr. Serrato's office, and was already feeling like I was in good hands even though I was anxious about surgery.
Throughout my treatment timeframe (about 3 months) I received a high level of care and coordination of my health plans and providers with Dr. Serrato.  She explained fully the images during my office visits, various options for my treatment, and the merits and drawbacks for various courses of action for my treatment.   I shared how I was strongly considering egg harvesting prior to surgery, and Dr. Serrato affirmed my thinking and, more importantly, listened.  She facilitated my getting in touch with an excellent Fertility Specialist and answered all of my post visit questions in a timely manner and timed the surgical date after I had gone through this treatment.  I felt in all of our consultations Dr. Serrato helped me make my most informed and best decisions. 
The preparation and surgical visit at Mills Peninsula was also a very seamless process from my end, although it was more difficult for Dr. Serrato.  Her advocacy for me as her patient included multiple attempts to get medications denied by my Insurance carrier in time for the surgery and also ordering a special piece of equipment for the hospital needed to perform the surgery.  Dr. Serrato set the right expectations from estimating surgery time to how long my recovery would be and gave me hope about my longer term health.  I am extremely grateful for her post-operative visit and the true care I felt as her patient.
Because it's the Thanksgiving season and I am feeling good again, I wanted to share how much I appreciate Dr. Serrato and her team for getting me back to health.  I would highly recommend her for any one considering robotic surgery or general Obstetric and Gynecological care.  I would not have delayed my own treatment if I had known of her sooner.     
C S, a grateful patient
