Patient Comments (3)
in Staten Island, NY |
Atmosphere of the place was prohibitive and dark. Her assistant is nasty and she is too sober and told me I had an 89% survival rate even though I did not ask her so she scared the crap out of me and prompted me to go toe Sloan Kettering where I met a positive doctor with a bright attitude and office atmosphere that reflected his power to cure. I would not suggest her because she said I needed a port, chemo and radiation When I got to Sloan, I did NOT need a port OR radiation

Very disappointed in her bedside manners. She is treating cancer patients but yet has NO compassion for her patients. She is pretty good at reminding her patients that they are going to die. Highly recommend a patient having another family member or friend at time of visit with her. Good luck getting through on the phone to the office staff. You have to leave a message and someone will "call you back within 24-36 hours" if your lucky.

No bedside manners. Does not make a patient feel comfortable. Gets insulted easy when you mention you want a second opinion!
