      She is wonderful, very thoughtful, very knowledgeable. I have always felt comfortable, it is not an easy thing for women to go through, but I feel safe here. She does a great job! I am always glad when it is over, I have had cancer, and she was very caring, and I appreciate also, that she prepared me for surgery. I also like the fact that she has the latest instrumentation.

      I recently needed an ultrasond to check an abnormal mammogram. Luckily there was an opening the next day at HDH so I didn't have too much time to panic. The technician was very kind,gentle & reassuring & as soon as she was finished said the radiologist would be in to speak to me momentarily. Once again, I didn't have to wait & worry long. Dr Dehart came in promptly & IMMEDIATELY put me at ease. She was kind, comforting & reassuring. Very sensitive to my feelings. I highly recommend her.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. DeHart's Care Philosophy

      I want to treat my patients as I want to be treated.  That means honesty, respect, kindness, and helpfulness.  

      Personally  I despise seeing my doctors.  (no offense Dr. Goode and Dr. Brand!)  I understand how stressful it is for a routine exam. 

      I believe the patient should know everything before they make big decisions.  Medicine is not a cookie cutter answer to every abnormality.

      I am a doctor -  a consultant for breast imaging.    For any of my patients -- I am happy to review your images with you.  I truly feel that no woman should leave our breast center confused or feeling like the doctor was not involved. 

      I truly love my "job" !   Please let me know how I can do it better!

      Dr. DeHart says...

      I am proud that greater than 90% of our patients that codme for biopsy are amazed that it did not hurt etc..

      Dr. DeHart says...

      I prefer to biopsy with ultrasound guidance.  It is a challenge at times.  It is always more comfortable for the patient. 

      I am incredibly fortunate to work with amazing ladies who make every day a pleasure.
