You hope to never need an oncologist, but if you do, then Dr. Vukelja (or Dr. V as most of us call her) is the one you want fighting with you! She will guide you compassionately through your options and provide encouragement and comfort all throughout your treatment. Getting a cancer diagnosis is terrifying - and I chose the most recommended doctor for her excellence in breast cancer treatment. Not only did I get the best doctor, I got the best PERSON to see me through.

I have told anyone that would listen that If and when you are diagnosed that you should choose Dr. Vukelja as your Oncologist. She is amazing, kind and knows what she is doing! She is very thorough and pays attention to what is going on as you go through your treatments. While under her care she discovered that I had a second type of cancer. I would not be alive if it werent for her !!!

Dr. Vukelja is an outstanding physician. Her knowledge and skills surpassed my expectations. I believe she used the tools to save my life and encouraged me to live my best life afterwards. I most certainly would recommend her to anyone needing her as their physician. I actually have given many her name and my thoughts on her.

Absolutely. I first saw Dr. V in 2008 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. She saw me through surgery, chemo and radiation. I had a lumpectomy in the other breast in 2018. I have been seeing her every 6 months while I take Tamoxifen. She has been a pleasure and a blessing to me.
