I was recently diagnosed with lung cancer at PCH and they told me at that time that I would be seeing Dr. Chambers. Her rep precedes her, that she is at once "rude" and "the best". Here's what I experienced: Straightforward. Maybe brutally honest, and maybe some people just want kind and gentle words. Give me honesty and truth any day. When I told her that I'd smoked for 50 years, she chewed me out but good. And I deserved it. I caused it. For the next few days, she had me put through an unbelievable battery of tests that I don't think would have happened anywhere else. Then she came to my room and told me I need to get my affairs in order. Tough news to be sure. But the real truth. Made me choke up. And really get serious. Our insurance companies don't do business, but she referred me to a highly respected colleague. In subsequent visits I felt her level of care and compassion to be superior. I don't really need to be coddled, I need the truth. And she certainly delivers.

The office staff at this facility are beyond rude and insulting. They are unwilling to assist anybody and feel it is appropriate to laugh at and insult people attempting to deal with their facility. Ed and Amanda are possibly the most unprofessional, rude and unqualified individuals I have ever had the misfortune of meeting.
