    Dr Shirley was heartfelt and caring during my sister's severe medical issues with cancer. However, after my sister's passing, there was no call, note, or anything additional to show what I thought was sincerity. I understand doctors are not obligated to do anything above medical care, but Dr Shirley led myself and my family to believe she was different from the rest. Great doctor for oversight but very disappointed with follow up.

    Dr Carmen Shirley is the epitome of a caring, compassionate professional. She was very responsive to the needs of her patient and positively interacted with the family. Dr Carmen was able to break down the care plan into a simple, easy to understand format. I highly recommend her to any friend or family member. Thanks for being there, Dr. Shirley.

    I HAVE HAD THE PLEASURE OF DEALING WITH DR. SHIRLEY FOR THE 4 TIMES MY DAD HAS HAD TO GO TO THE WESTSIDE REGIONAL HOSPITAL WITHIN A MONTH AND A HALF. SHE IS A VERY CONSIDERATE DR. SHE NOT ONLY TREATS THE PATIENT, BUT IS THERE FOR THE FAMILY, TAKING THE TIME TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE AND NOT TAKING THE TIME NECESSARY TO HELP YOU. SHE IS VERY LOVING AND COMPASIONATE. ITS WONDERFUL TO FIND DRS. WHO HAVENT LOST THEIR HUMANITY AND SHOW CARING FOR ALL.
