My husband and I have nothing but gratitude for Dr Fink. Caring, informative, easy to talk to. Made sure we understood his treatments, answered all our questions, and she and her staff are very professional. I would recommend Dr Fink to anyone needing an oncologist.

I couldn't get a word in edgewise wise with the receptionist. She would not make an appointment even though my Mom was referred to her by Another doctor. Told me that Dr Fink only sees patients after surgery and even then Dr Fink may or may not take my Mom. Then she basically hung up on me!

I saw her after I was diagnosed with GBM. She was frank; said I had 12-15 months. I would go home, get aspiration pneumonia and die. My family was devastated. I remember the ride home to East Texas. The silent crying was deafening. She said I could give MD Anderson a shot but doubted they could do...more
