Dr. Aylesworth is of the finest physicians I have ever met (in my 85 years) as patient. Her explanations are clear and very helpful. Her treatment has been very effective. She is very courteous, compassionate and friendly, and at the same time very professional and efficient. She goes beyond her specialty to help a patient. I am fortunate that she is my physician.

I really appreciated Dr. Aylesworth approach with me as I was thinking I was going to need Chemo. She was very helpful in providing me with all the information I needed from data to the actual effects of chemo and when the benefit my not outweigh those effects. She is very caring and pragmatic at the same time, which I found refreshing. Even if I were to choose Chemo, I know she would have my best in mind. She also is a great hugger!

Dr Aylesworth was fantastic for my 88yr old Mom, and possibly saved her from unnecessary surgery. She went above and beyond your typical Dr. and took charge of the situation that was being lead by two other doctors. Dr Aylesworth answered all questions, was truthful, and really cared about my Mom's treatment and follow up. I highly recommend her for your oncologist, or even a second opinion. She is truly a blessing.

Refused, for an entire month, to provide appropriate diagnostic and palliative medical care to my mother who was dying of cancer. She seemed more interested in snubbing the family than taking care of her patient, insisting on being contacted by another physician who had little knowledge of the case. Because of her inaction and disinterest, my mother was permanently paralyzed from the waist down. Physician in the emergency room told us that it was preventable if Dr. A had acted as we had asked.

Dr Aylesworth is not proactive in treatment. She gives a standard set of cocktails for cancer and has a staff that is kind and compassionate but she tends to be matter of fact and on the cold but pseudo reassuring side. If you're looking for assisted termination of life please see her. She won't admit when she has reached her level of incompetency and refer you to another specialty until its too late. I would be very careful about putting my fate in her hands without thorough research first.

Dr. Aylesworth is both compassionate and attentive. She has great bedside manners. She really makes you feel at ease and at the same time she is very straightforward. She took her time to explain everything and she welcomed all of our questions. I can't say enough great things about her.
