Patient Comments (6)
in Chesapeake, VA |
Was highly recommended by my GP and GYN doctors as the best in the area. Was not disappointed in the time that she took to explain my diagnosis so far, (just beginning to get biopsy results) and feel confident in her opinions. They tell you up front if things may be running a little slower (biopsy day) as they are taking time with each patient and you don't feel rushed. For me, I am less nervous if I know whats ahead instead of letting the mind wander.

Outstanding physician had always heard great things about her. Never thought I would have breast cancer and now I understand first hand how great she is. She is upfront and honest about everything no beating around the bush. Excellent doctor would never dream of going anywhere else for treatment of breast cancer.

I was never able to meet with Dr. Carman. I had a biopsy done elsewhere and was told I had breast cancer and sought her out upon recommendation. When I called to make an appointment to meet with her for treatment options, I was informed that they would not use the biopsy. Without the office giving me any more information, alternatives or allowing me to ask. they said Thank you and hung up!. This is not an office I want to deal with regularly for a serious condition, and have moved on elsewhere.

My first impression of dr carman was I had selected the right doctor to treat my breast cancer. She assured me I would be OK. Of course you still worry but her assurance made me feel better.
