Dr Keeper is direct in answering questions. I can depend on an honest answer.
Chicago, IL |
On our first visit, she hinted at doing our bucket list. She practices very conservative therapy (which I can find spelled out on the internet) and she is condescending when asked about alternative therapy. "Well, what clinical trial do you *want* to be part of?" She's supposed to be the expert... not us. We had no way to evaluate the nuances of different clinical trials. She should know about all of them... that's her job. If you're looking for a fighter... keep looking.

Dr. Leeper has abhorrent bedside manner. As an oncologist one would think that she would be trained to give bad news in a compassionate manner, instead she chooses her language poorly and tosses around words like "paltry" in her description of prognosis to her patients. She is not one to go above and beyond for her patients, there is no alternate doc when she's out of town. She practices bare minimum and conservative therapy and she is condescending when asked about alternative therapies.
