Patient Comments (3)
in Arlington, VA |
It appeared that she had too many patients. The first time she looked at my pathology report was when I came in for my appointment, which meant it took her almost two hours to go over it. Her interactions were rather cold and even for an early stage (stage 1) breast cancer patient she advocated double mastectomy over lumpectomy. I always felt like she was "hanging the black crepe" every time I left her office. I changed oncologists before my third visit. I would not recommend her to anyone.

Quality of care includes respect for patient's time and provide clear guidance. Having a waiting room full of patients, with an average wait time of 2 hours, tells me that the office is not well managed. The doctor and staff were quite defensive and aggressive when the issue was raised. The disjointed review of my test results means having to review them again with my primary physician. I made it clear that I will not use this doctor again.
