Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Berchuck 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.

Background Check

1 Malpractice Claim
  • 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.

I waited 45 minutes between the nurse leaving and the doctor coming. The doctor was very patronizing and did not listen well.
