in Raleigh, NC |
Dr Desjardins and her team (especially nurse Rosemary) at Duke are fantastic. She treats her patients with compassionate care and always remains positive while presenting all the facts. She has been treating my moms brain tumor for the last 4 months and I truly believe my mom is in the best care possible. She spends time with us answering questions and does not make us feel rushed. We trust Dr Desjardins 100%!! Highly recommend!

First they performed a horrible surgery, now an oncologist that doesn't answer my questions and is extremely rude?
in Greenville, NC |
Dr. Desjardins introduced her self with confidence and was very well prepared to meet with me. I felt that every moment we met was well used and that she had fully educated herself on my case. She was very forth coming and friendly. For our initial visit she had reviewed my case thouroughly and was well not just peaking her head in to say hello. I am accustom to this level of care and anything less would have left me very disappointed. I was NOT disappointed. I was impressed. I was not rushed.
