I SIMPLY WOULD NOT TRUST MY LIFE TO ANOTHER PERSON. SHE IS BEYOND AMAZING. SHE IS GENEROUS WITH HER TIME AND HEART. SHE IS BRILLIANT! HER AND HER STAFF ARE ALL ANGELS ON EARTH. THEY ALL REALLY CARE AND I HAVE HAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE WITH EVERY DEPARTMENT

I have been a patient of Dr. Laurie Frakes for 11 years, since I was diagnosed by a doctor in Los Angeles with infiltrating ductal carcinoma, Triple Negative, with a tumor size of 4.5 cm. I decided to have my treatment in Encinitas, closer to home. Dr. Frakes and her staff’s professionalism, kindness, and knowledge is what allowed me to not only physically survive the disease itself, but also allowed me to psychologically survive what I call “the year of inconvenience.”

When diagnosed you are terrified. This Dr. put me at ease, joked with me as well as being bold and serious when need be. She is professional, kind, caring and I have recommended her to many f my friends who have suffered the diagnosis. She is also responsible for finding other medical conditions during my scans that I am now being treated for. When needing an Oncologist you need someone who is thoughtful and thorough , she is that and so much more.
Bad communication between her staff and patient. Unable to get clear direction on what to do next. She is difficult to talk if you have questions very busy.
