Gynecomastia, a condition that affects men and boys, is characterized by the enlargement of breast tissue. This often leads to self-consciousness and discomfort.

I would like to take a moment to thank Dr. Godinez, Dr. Sim, and the staff at FRC's Breast Diagnostic Center for the excellent healthcare they provided me. In Nov. 2016, Dr. Godinez discovered a small mass after my regular screening mammogram was done. Every time I have thought about my early diagnosis over the past year, I have said a prayer of thanksgiving for him and his expertise.  Because he caught it so early, I have done very well with my treatment, and my prognosis is excellent. I feel like I am a walking advertisement for the benefits of early detection, and I remain very grateful to Dr. Godinez and the wonderful, caring staff at FRC for the healthcare they provided me. That day was a very tough day with a long journey to follow, but Dr. Godinez, Dr. Sim, the nurses, and assistants could not have been more professional, caring and compassionate.  I will always remember each of them for the gift they have been to me and to my family. They are truly saving lives.
