Care Philosophy

Surgery and management of patients with cancer is very complex and challenging. I enjoy working at Duke because of the breadth and quality of people we have here. I really feel like Im working with the best when Im working with my colleagues. I went into obstetrics and gynecology because I enjoyed working with women patients. Then as a resident I found that oncology patients were among the most gratifying to take care of because they appreciate so much everything you try to do for them. In high school and college I was very interested in science and mathematics and the human body and physiology. In college meeting different types of people I realized that I wanted a profession that gave me the opportunity to interact with all different kinds of people. My wife and I moved here 25 years ago and have never regretted it. Its a great area to live.Read more

All I can say is run from this doctor.
Due to an ovarian cancer scare my husband and I went to Duke to have Dr. Berchuck review my case. He was thorough and made me feel confident in his ability. The setting is actually a very scary place since it is in the Surgical Onocology department at Duke Hospital. There were several women without hair and one who looked like she didn't have much time left. The volunteers who help there are awesome!!! A nurse said patients come to see Dr. Berchuck as far away as California.

    • Settlement (9/21/2015)
    • Nature of Complaint: INCIDENT LOCATION: DURHAM, NC /// PRACTITIONER COMMENTS: Elderly patient treated for cervical cancer with radiation therapy was followed intermittently for nine years. Patient complained of abdominal pain to her primary care physician (who resided in a neighboring state). A CT was ordered and performed in the neighboring state. That radiologist did not have patient's history of pelvic radiation and reported that the findings were concerning for malignancy. Patient was evaluated who reviewed the actual CT scans himself. Based on his years of clinical experience concluded the changes noted on the CT were secondary to uterine scarring due to radiation rather than malignancy. Furthermore, at the time of the CT the patient was asymptomatic for uterine pathology. A little over one year later the patient was diagnosed with uterine cancer.
