Not only is this doctor an expert in OBGYN oncology surgery, he is caring and compassionate. Ovarian cancer surgery and the ensuing chemo treatments can be challenging. Having the expertise and genuine care from Dr. Schorge and his team helped me to understand and have confidence in the process. John Schorge is an amazing doctor, a one of a kind caregiver and mentor!of other doctors and an expert in his field. I credit my full recovery to this brilliant surgeon.

I would highly recommend Dr. John Schorge who treated my stage lV Ovarian cancer 10 years ago. Since I’m very able to write this now as a fit and healthy, newly 80 year old, it is obvious that I had exceptional care, given with great skill and much personal warmth.

My son and I spent the summer of 2018 looking for a surgeon we could trust. Some promised horrors, some gave no hope, but when we Met Dr. Schorge, we knew our search was over. The only hard part of our first meeting with the doctor was waiting to see if he felt he could help. We'd already put our faith in him just by listening to him. I will be forever grateful to one of the nicest doctors who was so willing to help me. Can't say enough positive about him and about his team.

Dr. Schorge has a superb bedside manner! He erases that “ white coat syndrome” of doctors! He takes the time to explain everything to you! I was so nervous but he made me feel comfortable. This doctor is a treasure!

I went because I had a large ovarian cyst. My ob/gyn wanted to take out both of my ovaries out no matter what. I went to Mass General to get a second opinion from Dr. Schorge. He told me that post menopausal women live longer with their ovaries because they emit male hormones that cannot be replicated. He told me if the one cyst was benign, he would only take that ovary. Thankfully, it was benign! I loved his personality, his knowledge and his surgery skills.

Getting a diagnosis with the "C" word is unsettling. But starting with scheduling the first consult to surgery to follow up, everything went as smoothly as one could hope for. I had very good care from Wentworth Douglas Hospital nurses, and the surgery went exactly right, any fears allayed. Dr. Schorge was very kind and patient explaining what to expect, and answering questions, before and after. I'd totally recommend him.

I would think that any appointment with gynecological oncologist would include a normal examination of a patient. In order to determine what is going on. Alas, Dr. Schorge doesn’t think so. Apparently, his preferred method is to look at a patient from afar. Twice I saw him as my gynecologist-oncologist , and twice he didn’t bother to examine me. All and all it was the most disappointing experience throughout my cancer journey.
