I would not recommend this doctor. She has an arrogant edge & attempted to "put me in my place" when I asked questions. She also had a malpractice suit, which she refused to answer questions about, which directly impacts my comfort in trusting her.

She is personable and caring. Explains everything thoroughly and in a manner that is understandable. Also liked her staff, including her medical student, and nurse. Offers whatever support you need. She concurred with my local oncologist regarding my plan of treatment and even stated with my diagnosis of cervical cancer, she would have had the same plan for me. The only reason for 4 stars vs 5, was the long wait time. The Dr was kind enough to apologize for that.
