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 a very thorough, caring Doctor. She has even messaged me after hours to give me information or answer my questions.
