Dr. Paessun is knowledgeable, takes her time with you and caring. She explains everything well, supports her course of care with the cancer society's studies and recommendations, and asks if you have questions at each visit. She remembers details of your life-you are a person to her, not a non-entity. I highly recommend her and the staff at the Greater Dayton Cancer Center in Kettering.

by Carolyn Y on Mar 16th, 2016

Dr. Paessun was friendly and willing to answer questions and explain how to deal with different aspects of treatment. Staff was very nice and prompt.

by Tina Reiter on Mar 4th, 2016

Dr. Paessun and her staff were absolutely wonderful throughout my radiation treatment. They were professional, courteous and everyone had a great sense of humor which made the ordeal easier to endure. I had no terrible side effects due to the great advice and instruction received from Dr. Paessun. I would recommend her to all my friends and family.

Staff very friendly, efficient. Doctor..... ( Drive by Doctor) pretty much a waste of time, Quickly says the same lines each visit, Ask you questions but doesn't listen and doesn't know or remember what she is seeing you for unless you correct her or remind her every single Visit. Spends the entire time writing out her notes on your visit so she doesn't have to even think about you after she leaves the room and That work is done...... She will ask how you are..... you might tell her you may be having a little trouble with something...... her answer Every Time will be....... " Not my department" you need to see a Doctor about this. She denies that HER Radiation causes any problems even though they warn you of so many things that radiation can do to your body...... If SHE thinks it doesn't effect her, she has no problem passing the buck., NOT MY PROBLEM, Go AWAY... Good Day..... then always ends your appointment with a HUG..... a quick one.......... Nothing like being Kicked and hugged. Her appointments are pointless for any questions about radiation..... Remember: Radiation knowledge is ABOVE your intelligence. She will breeze you through what she thinks you need to know..... and the rest is pretty much None of Your Business...... and she will tell you when she is through with you and she can do NO MORE for you if your Cancer is still there or returns...... her last words to me, I can't do anymore Radiation if you have cancer or it returns. Thanks Doc.... I am waiting my three months to get the scan that will tell me if the treatments did any good at ridding me of Cancer, trying to put the possibility of it still being there or to returning out of my mind for now so that I don't worry myself sick while I wait . But thanks for your Last comment, You tell me if it's still there.... You can't help me...... No Hope I suppose..... encouragement is just what I need now. Thanks ! Do yourself a BIG FAVOR and interview these people that are supposed to fight your cancer and include you in on the details. If they don't know why your there the first visit... LEAVE...... it's scary

Dr. Paessun was friendly yet professional. She was always concerned with how I was doing and what she could do to make the radiation treatments easier for me. I had radiation treatments 12 years ago with a lot more skin break down and pain. Thank you Dr. Paessun for all you do.

by Pam Lambalot on Oct 22nd, 2015

Dr. Paessun is the best. She explained my radiation treatments accurately and always took time to meet with me and I never felt rushed. Very smart and down to earth physician. Udderly smooth and Aquaphor are your friends for breast radiation.

by A. Williams on Oct 6th, 2015

My experience with Dr. Paessun was totally comfortable. I felt that she was extremely knowledgeable. Everything that she said would happen during my radiation treatments and after happened (even though I thought I would bypass certain side effects). But I followed her directions and came out on top. Great bedside manner! Would recommend her to anyone.

During my 33 treatments, Dr. Paessun or a nurse were always available if I had any questions or concerns. They always kept me up on what to expect next. Great advice on how to take care of any side effects and skin reactions before it happened. I was always in and out quickly but thorough. I also received phone calls at home from the doctor herself .

She doesn't take the time with you. You are always waiting for her! She always late. And if you have large breast, she doesn't understand how it is. I wish I had a better doctor.

Dr. Paessun works incredibly long hours to make sure her patients receive the best care. She has called me personally late in the evening to give me test results, and has squeezed me in early in the morning so that I could get to my job. She is knowledgeable, sincere and caring.

Dr. Paessun went above and beyond in seeing that my entire well being was taken care of. She addressed not only the breast cancer concern but my mental, physical and emotional welfare. I fully believe she was genuinely interested in me as a person. She laid my options on the table and was very direct in presenting the possible outcomes of the choices I could be making. When I had a concern about a staff member, she took care of it immediately. I always felt I was in "good hands"!

I had Dr. Paessun as my radiation oncologist when I was in treatment for breast cancer. She knew exactly what I could expect throughout the process and was great to inform me ahead of time. The treatment she prescribed to care for my skin worked very well and I didn't have any major problems with the radiation burn. She was quick to address any questions or concerns I had.

Receiving a diagnosis of Breast Cancer was devastating to me, and I wanted the best care possible and the best Doctors on my team. I feel as if I got one of the best in Dr. Paessun. Right from the start of my first consult, her cheerfulness and knolwdge put me at ease. Dr. Paessun was very kind, compassionate, and most of, all she was very confident in her knowledge of the radiation process. Once my Radiation treatments started the staff with Dayton Physician's Network was outstanding. They took time with me and my husband to explain every step of the treatments. The CT Staff was excellent and always kind and caring with genuiness that could be felt. The staff that performed the radiation treatments were the same, excellent. We found things in common and it was like visiting with a good friend. While I hope to never visit them at work ever again, I do hope our pathc cross again some day! Thank you Dr. Paessun! I will refer any family member, friend, or work colleague to you!

The most memorable part of my treatment and meeting Dr. Paessun was that she talked to me like a friend not just a number. She also didn't sugar coat things.

Dr.Paessun is wonderful. She made me feel at ease right away with her kindness and understanding. Being a perioperative nurse without a lot of knowledge of radiation therapy, she was very quick to adapt her explanations in such a way that made sense to me. My husband and I were very impressed with her knowledge and her willingness to spend as much time with us as we needed. She showed us my films, explained them to us and always had an answer. I would and have recommended her to anyone in need of this service.

Dr Paessun is a wonderful, caring, competent physician. She explains everything in a clear and thorough manner. This has been one of the hardest experiences in my life and Dr. Paessun certainly made it easier. She is incredibly competent - knowing and understanding her field very well.

She was very encouraging about some of my side issues. I would highly recommend Dr Paessun.

Dr. Paessun took ample time with me each time I saw her and she answered my questions thoroughly. Oftentimes she would locate additional information and took great care to find current research pertinent to my health diagnosis. She is warm, friendly, and a great advocate for those facing serious health problems. My mother and brother-in-law were also her patients and they recommend her highly too.

This doctor keep me waiting 1 1/2 hours on first appointment. She said I needed chemo when my pathology report suggested differently. She spend only a few minutes with me and told me she was having a bad day. Her bedside manner was terrible. I have gone to another doctor, had a special test done to prove I did not need chemo and have moved right on to radiation. I recommend getting a second opinion.

She is truly a life saver. I am so glad I got a second opinion with her. She came highly recommended in the community. My problems were complex, but she spent the time necessary to solve them, unlike the many other doctors involved in my care. She displays genuine compassion.
