Patient Comments (3)

Exam was thorough, and her medical care appeared good. My compliments end there, however. I felt she was insensitive and unconcerned with bedside manner. Decided not to see her again. Had the impression that fame has gone to her head. Unfortunate, because medically she impressed me well. No trouble with the radiation oncologist, surgeon, techs, nurses, case manager, or business office. She told me I would have to find a medical oncologist outside of her group.. Having records faxed to him.

She was awesome. Her bed side manner was great. She was so honest and helpful. She gave us all options and encouraged the patient to vocalize their treatment desires. I would highly recommend her.
in Henderson, TX |
Dr. V is an awesome doctor. She is honest, caring, and very professional. My first appointment with Dr. V all my family attended the appointment and all immediately fell in love with her. When crossing my oncologist I am so glad God led me to Dr. V. I have recommended to other friends who were diagnosed with breast cancer and they all have been very glad I told them about her.
