What People Say About Dr. Karen Chee, MD
Reply
Dr. Chee was originally referred to us by our PCP, a great physician, who had seen her for his own issues. My husband has been seeing Dr. Chee for about 6 years. She is a consummate professional, always up to date on her field, and always considers the next step should it be necessary. I cannot imagine a better professional for my husband's care. It's easy for a patent in an advanced stage of any disease to blame the doctor. I understand the frustration. But given the complexity of the problems associated with cancer, Dr. Chee is exceptional in a professional and personal basis.

Dr. Chee seems knowledgable in what she does, but she has done absolutely nothing to help my dad. She showed up to the hospital after his surgery and we discussed trying to get into medical trials at UCSF. She told me to call with any questions, so I called to see what our back-up plan was for his aggressive cancer growth in the meantime. She just passed the buck to UCSF and now we have no guidance, no support, and now no oncologist. We are not in the trial and Chee never checked up again.
