Dr. Contessa Metcalfe Decides to Undergo a Double Mastectomy

Dr. Contessa Metcalfe has a whole new business up her sleeve! The Married to Medicine cast member is already a doctor, real estate entrepreneur, and restaurant owner, but she has recently added another venture to her resume. On an episode of Sister Circle TV, she opened up about her latest business, and how it has been inspired by her own experiences as a patient. 

How to Watch

Watch Married to Medicine now streaming on Peacock and the Bravo App.

“It’s about public health and preventive medicine. Last year, that mastectomy really changed my whole view of medicine. And one thing I learned, that I already knew, is that doctors are not magicians. There’s no magic pill that I can give you,” she explained. “But I can help you understand how to take control of your own health, things that you can do yourself.” 

“So, integrative medicine, nutrition, how to take care of you,” she continued. When you come in, you just gotta let me know what’s happening, and we can manage so you can get back to taking care of you again. We don’t get to learn how to do that.”

Contessa opened up about her decision to undergo a double mastectomy during Season 6 of Married to Medicine, noting her family history of breast cancer. 

“I have had abnormal mammograms for at least 10 years. And my mom died from breast cancer, and I want to do whatever it takes to make sure that that same thing doesn’t happen to me,” she said in the clip above. “I had two sick parents growing up. Almost weekly in doctors offices, and hospitals and clinics. My family seems to be cursed. I feel like my whole life has been preparing for the moment that I’m going to get sick, too.”
