Dr Toomey has been my oncologist since 1985 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. She is extremely compassionate, knowledgeable, and makes you feel as if your concerns are very important to her.

I would recommend Dr Toomey because she is open and friendly, easy to talk to. She is also a good communicator and listener. She has a lot of experience so she uses wise clinical judgement in making treatment decisions. She explains her decisons carefully to make sure the patient understands.
