Compassionate, leader of cutting edge care for breast cancer at Mayo Clinic, and delivers individualized , resourceful patient centered plans. Dr Northfelt spends good time with his patients, whatever l time needed to answer every question until satisfied. He makes you feel like there is nothing more important than you at this visit. No sugar coating , but appropriate optimism. I've worked along side him as a colleague and now that I have breast cancer, he was my doctor of choice.

Dr. Northfelt accommodated us during an unscheduled visit after a very long day. He treated us with compassion and care. He was very astute, clinically data driven, and took the time to explain his rationale behind his thoughts. We really like & trust him!
