Dr. Mulcahy is an amazing doctor! When we sought out her help and expertise, it was not because of bedside manner. She is an OUTSTANDING oncologist. My wife and I were looking for someone to keep me alive and well---and that was and is the # 1 goal. We wanted someone honest, straight-forward, and no BS. ALSO, I have experienced her as a doctor who is compassionate and caring knowing that I have a very serious and challenging to treat cancer. She listens, answers questions, does not rush thru appointments, and she gets back to me (and/or her staff) expeditiously. Her nurses, assistants--all top notch and caring and committed individuals as well. I travel from the suburbs to come here every other week knowing that Northwestern is the BEST--and it is the best in cancer treatment due to the doctors they employ. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Mulcahy. You will be in excellent hands.

If you are about to go through Cancer Treatment and you are looking for an oncologist, this is the last place you want to go. They are always behind schedule, once you see them they are not up to date on your file (you feel like it's the first time they've met you every time), they NEVER call to see how you are doing with regard to side effects, symptoms of treatment etc. and they are highly unorganized! Most of all, they lack compassion. They are so desensitized to what the patient is going through on many levels. If being in a cattle call line for this life altering experience meets your expectation, then proceed with this practice. Otherwise, proceed with extreme caution.

DO NOT CHOOSE DR. MULCAHY AS YOUR ONCOLOGIST – Sep 24, 2019

The people giving her high ratings here most likely were diagnosed with stage 1-3 cancers. If you have stage 4, stay far away. She treats you like a statistic and has absolutely no compassion or remorse. I'm sure she's knowledgeable and is respected by her colleagues but she has an incredibly negative demeanor. With stage 4 disease, you need a doctor who makes you feel like they're on your side. There are plenty of doctors with her expertise but will have COMPASSION.

My husband is alive 14 years later, cancer free, and with a great quality of life because of Dr Mary Mulcahey. The 5 year survival rate, at the time of diagnosis, was approx 30%. Jim has been alive to see our son graduate from college, daughter get married, and the birth of 2 grandsons. Both my husband and I are in the healthcare field and we highly recommend this physician.

Excellent physician. Very knowledgeable and compassionate! I am over 10 years cancer free after being given less than 50% chance of survival.
