Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kimmick When people ask me why I became an oncologist it reminds me that Im very lucky to be doing what I do to help people. And when they remind me that it must be very difficult I nod my head because it is -- but it is also incredibly rewarding. We help people during a very difficult time in their life a cancer diagnosis. As one of my professors in medical school said It is a tremendous compliment for someone to come to us for care and I try always to remember that. There arent many places in the world where there is a top-notch multidisciplinary breast clinic with medical oncologists breast surgeons plastic surgeons radiation oncologists radiologists/breast imagers physical therapists nutritionists pharmacists social workers and psychologists nurses and staff working shoulder-to-shoulder to provide the best individualized care for each patient. We are lucky to provide individualized care to each person we see.

Dr. Kimmick is wonderful. She was so compassionate and caring. I always felt that she answered all of my Questions and always spent the appropriate time with me and my family. I always feel "safe" with Dr. Kimmick and trust her wholeheartedly with my health care

I was really quite shocked. I had been a patient at Duke before and had awesome care and Drs. I went to see this bird and left knowing less than when I went in. She seemed tired, lethargic, and uninterested. She and the Dr working with her told me 2 completely different things. It was an awful experience all around and I hope to spare anyone else from having a similar experience.
