I probably wouldn't be here able to write this review if I'd continued to follow Dr. Toomey's plan for my recovery of metastasized breast cancer. I did what she advised for nine months and the cancer spread leading me to emergency surgery. At least now I have great doctors at Sloan Kettering who are helping me heal and beat cancer!! With Dr. Jacqueline Bromberg's individualized treatment plan, my cancer markers have dropped from 440 to 130 in just a few months and I feel great!!! I have hope now

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.
