Patient Comments (1)
San Jose, CA |
I was visiting from out of state and needed a transfusion to manage my Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS). I was referred to Dr Galatin at Stanford. Even with orders from my doctor, Galatin initially refused treatment and lectured me on why my treatment modality was incorrect. He hadn't reviewed my records, doesn't specialize in MDS (a rare disease) and hasn't published any research on it. His style was the antithesis of patient-centered care. I definitely won't use Stanford Hospital again.
We are sorry about the frustrations you experienced during your recent visit. Patient care and satisfaction are of the utmost importance to us. We understand that all patients' situations are unique and we always do our best to meet our patients' needs within our control. If you would be willing to call our Cancer Center Director, Patty at (650) 721-4160, we would welcome the opportunity to resolve any outstanding concerns you may have.
