Sat in waiting room for 45 mins. Then waited in treatment room for 25 mins before Dr. finally came in. She spent less than 10 mins with me, seemed annoyed with me and dismissed my concerns about abnormal breast tissue and her only advice was to wear a sports bra for 2 weeks straight (only taking it off to shower!?) as a way to help with the pain in my breasts. Walked away feeling embarrassed for "wasting" her time about the concerns I had with my body, did not feel seen or heard and did not get good advice. Ultimately felt like I wasted my time and $ by being referred to her. Would not recommend.

Dr. Dunham was a wonderful surgeon, double mastectomy, she was very professional, very compassionate and compass oncology was also wonderful to deal through. I had no reconstruction and she was able to make a very straight line across the chest, don't laugh i have seen pictures of very bad horizontal lines and that was important to me. Her office has followed up even months after having the procedure. She knows what she is doing, don't hesitate to meet this wonderful person and have her as your surgeon.

Yes, definitely. Dr. Dunham and her staff are all wonderful. Compassionate and very much a team. I felt I could call anytime to get answers to my questions and just plain old support from her well trained staff members. You're not just a number to Dr. Dunham. She's very caring and takes as much time as you need to answer your questions.

Dr. Dunham and team provided seamless coordination for mastectomy. It's helpful that she works regularly with plastic surgeons she was able to recommend for reduction and reconstruction. I felt well-informed and prepared and appreciate that she has experience working on a variety of body types and sizes (which is not true of all surgeons I consulted with). I highly recommend her for breast cancer surgical options. (Location: Rose Quarter Compass Oncology office)
