My consultation today with Dr. Angela Caffrey regarding my decision to have my ovaries removed as opposed to shutting them down chemically led to an hour and a half discussion of my whole health history of breast cancer and other related problems beginning six years ago. I am so grateful to Dr. Caffrey for not just using the "wait until a patient asks a question and then answer it" approach. Instead, she literally sketched out (using a pencil and paper) my whole health history, weaving in details that even I couldn't remember, and answered questions before I could even think of them. In this way, she then came up with a comprehensive plan for me that I could trust. Among all the doctors: oncologists, surgeons, and nurse practitioners, Dr. Caffrey is the doctor whom I wish I had met years ago. She is a perfectionist, intent on making sure that I could understand her as she discussed my treatment options, while allowing room for me to ask her questions, and also to examine how I was feeling at any given moment. I give Dr. Caffrey the highest rating possible for the peace she has given me, as her council was amazingly thorough and comprehensive. For once I will not have to leave after talking to a doctor only to discover that I have more question to worry about, second-guess and research, which happens when a doctor falls short of explaining his or her answers. Thank you Dr.Caffrey for treating me as an equal partner in my health treatment plan. Sincerely, Ann Walker

Dr. Caffrey's care and concern exceeded any experience I had ever had with a Doctor before, she took the time to explain the effects of ovarian cancer, the treatment and the side effects, she took the time to make sure I understood and made me feel comfortable during my journey and through recovery.The wait time in the office just meant she was concerned about all of her patients.Thank you Dr. Caffrey for saving my life...
