"After learning I was BRCA1 +, I began my search for a surgeon to take care of the expanders and reconstruction segment following my bilateral mastectomy. I had visited a couple of Plastic Surgeons before being referred to Dr.Chopra by a close friend. From the moment I met Dr.Chopra, he gave off a very calm and reassuring energy which helped to reduce much of my fear and anticipation. He patiently explained every step of what I was about to go through, drew pictures and answered every question I had about the surgery and the healing process..."
"My life forever changed when I found out that I was BRCA1 positive and had an 87% risk to develop breast cancer. At the time I was a healthy, vibrant 38 year old wife and mother. I wanted to live a long and healthy life with my family so for me it was an easy decision to have a preventive double mastectomy. When I researched breast surgeons and plastic surgeons I was immediately drawn to Dr. Ritu Chopra because of his experience, charisma and energy..."

I had a procedure call “Brachioplasty”. My doctor was Dr. Ritu Chopra and he is AMAZING. Not only is he a fantastic, perfectionistic, meticulous surgeon, but he is SO caring and kind and really makes me feel like we are in “in it together..."
"I am so extremely grateful to have met Dr. Ritu Chopra and feel blessed to have him care for me during this difficult time. After making the hard decision to have a double mastectomy following a breast cancer diagnosis coupled with strong family history, I began the daunting task of choosing a surgeon to entrust with my treatment. I never planned on having surgery outside of my hometown, Seattle, but after a consultation with Dr. Kristi Funk of Pink Lotus Breast Center and a subsequent referral and conversation with Dr. Chopra..."
"During my initial consultation all my options were throughly explained. This also included all the details of insurance coverage and costs. I only had to make one payment to Dr Chopra and his office took care of the remainder and dealt with my insurance company. During this stressful time it was a relief to have them completely take care of the insurance. January 2014 through April, I had appointments in both Beverly Hills and Rancho Mirage offices. Dr Chopra and his entire staff at both locations are kind,flexible and professional..."
