Karen Larousso is the most compassionate doctor I have ever encountered. I met her in the hospital and thought she was so remarkable that I changed doctors. I'm so glad I did!

Horrible My tumors weren't shrinking she ordered surgery! Then I went to another oncologist and they did a re biopsy to the tumor only to find out she was giving me the wrong chemo. My cancer came back within a year! I hate her for not going back and questioning the aggressive cancer I had. If she had she would have known I wasn't HER2 negative but the more aggressive HER2 positive
