- Gynecologic Oncology
Gynecologic oncologists specialize in cancers that occur in the female reproductive system. This includes ovarian cancer, cervical cancer and endometrial cancer, as well as the less commonly talked about female reproductive cancers like vulvar cancer, vaginal cancer and fallopian tube cancer.
In addition to diagnosing the stage of your cancer and recommending treatment options, they’ll provide care throughout your treatment and help you manage your symptoms. They’ll often work closely with a pathologist and a radiologist to properly diagnose you and determine if your cancer is shrinking or spreading throughout treatment. They’re even trained to administer chemotherapy and to perform surgery to remove cancer when necessary.

I accompanied a friend with a new diagnosis of uterine cancer. Dr. Brown was 2 hours late, with no explanation or apology. We waited in the exam room for another two hours. She spent 10 minutes answering our questions and was curt and abrupt. She made it clear my friend's uterine cancer was not interesting to her and even popped her head in as we were leaving to say "It's OK for you to go to another doctor." We were there from 9:00 am to 1:30 pm.
Dr Brown is phenomenal. I really do not have an adequate adjective to describe her. As a registered nurse, I have worked in many environments with many different physicians over the past 28 years. I have never encountered a physician or a facility that can compare to Dr. Brown or to MSK. I am a difficult person to impress. Where Dr. Brown is concerned, I am beyond impressed. She is what a physician should be. This is how patient care should be delivered. After 28 years I learned from Dr. Brown and MSK that it can be done right. That was an overwhelming realization.
Dr. Brown is compassionate, caring, at the top of her field and overall we found her to be a terrific and thorough surgeon. She truly cares. You will wait sometimes in the office but that is only because she is caring for others who are in great need.
