Dr. Rooney serves as my Oncologist. My initial meeting with her was wonderful. She made a sketch of each area regarding my cancer explaining what each one meant in medical terms and making certain that I understood in layman's terms. When I returned to my local doctor, he was quite impressed with what she had done and copied the paper for my local file. I appreciated her professionalism, her expertise, and her very personal bedside manner. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
