She seemed confident. Came in with a treatment plan that looked good. I had to drag the bad news out of her as this is a terminal situation. Her accent is strong but I think she is a competent physician, which is the main thing. For some reason though she had to refer us and that physician doesn't accept our insurance so we are still without adequate care.

Three weeks after my breast cancer diagnosis, I found myself waiting in an exam room for Dr. Ming Chi. Before she entered, I sat quietly crying. My diagnosis was still raw and the prospect of my upcoming surgery and further treatment frightened me. I was still wiping my eyes when she came into the room. Within just a couple of minutes of meeting, Dr. Chi asked if I was taking anything to manage my emotions. I answered honestly and said I was only three weeks into my diagnosis. While I harbor no judgement around anti-depressants, I felt it was premature and insensitive to suggest that I, a young, newly diagnosed breast cancer patient, needed to better manage my emotions.
After that, we began discussing my diagnosis. Before giving her assessment, she said she didn’t know whether to be direct or “sugarcoat” her opinion for me. This felt cold and uncaring. Of course, I want honesty and surely, I could not be the first breast cancer patient to be emotional about her fate. I asked her to be honest, but also compassionate. Instead, Dr. Chi turned away from me, towards her computer, and barely turned back to make eye contact as she provided her opinion. This made me feel unimportant. I asked questions and raised some concerns. She answered (mostly with her back to me) and after each answer, she would curtly ask, “What else?” Her tone made me feel like she was rushing me through the appointment.
My boyfriend attended the appointment with me. Because I was so stressed, I asked for his opinion of the visit. He agreed her communication style felt totally insensitive and uncaring. Ultimately, I sought treatment elsewhere. I found a medical oncologist with expertise and compassion, both qualities being equally important to me.
