    You are not a number, you are a person to Dr. Axelrod. She cares about you, and your family members. If you want to complain about the wait time- then find another doctor with a revolving door. Deborah spends time with you to ease your fears and listen to your concerns.

    When I met Dr. Axelrod I was newly diagnosed with breast cancer. I had finished taking care of my mother for five years at cancer ravaged her body. I was numb. Dr Axelrod explained, patiently, the results of each of my pre-tests. After surgery, there was confusion about the test results on my tumor. She diligently followed the testing-reteting-final-reteting process. She journeyed with me as I transitioned into oncology. Three years later she still takes each of my emails & calls.
