Extraordinary Service

I find the negative comments about this physician on this site to be very suspect. I spent part of my career evaluating medical practices in studies for the National Academy of Sciences. This one is of the absolute highest quality. She and her resident, Dr. Robert Samstein, were wonderful. They had done their homework on my wife's medical history and were clear, complete, concise, respectful and caring in spending a considerable time explaining our options and their recommendations for radiation oncology treatment. She went out of her way to research at our request a very high quality radiation oncology breast specialist near our home in Virginia. That physician had practiced at Sloan before relocating. As for the online complaints that she is not a good radiation oncologist. At Sloan Kettering. Really? Such opinions are completely without merit. We highly recommend her.

Lack of Patient Care

This "Doctor" lack of concern, lack of any examinations throughout my 4 week radiation period made me feel like I was going radiation treatment alone. I am grateful for the technicians that gave me the information I needed. This Dr. Is void of all qualities a dr. Should have.
