The Heather Zeilstra Story

Amanda FloecknerNews

Faced with Stage 3 invasive ductal carcinoma, Heather Zeilstra was petrified. Her nerves were quickly settled when Dr. Oman explained the plan and shared her own personal journey with cancer.

“Dr. Oman helped me make the most important decision of my life.” –Heather Zeilstra

Island Surgeons physician, Dr. Leah Oman, helped Heather and her family from her first appointment and diagnosis all the way through recovery. She helped get approval from Heather’s insurance company for her diagnostic mammogram. And following Heather’s double
mastectomy, she checked in on Heather and her family regularly; making sure that Heather’s medical needs were being met.
