A review by a patient that verified they have visited Dr. David L Campbell - Posted on April 20th, 2017
My husband was referred to Dr. Campbell for chemo . He had pancreatic cancer Stage !V. The dr. said he could live 5 months without chemo and he didn't know if chemo would help, This was devastating to us . My husband had lost 30 lbs and ha terrible diarrhea. The dr seemed unconcerned and ordered OTC lomitil.. That did't work so he ordered liquid medicine which was toxic and didn't take. We begged him to research another option and after 2 months he prescribed Octreotide Acetate which has to be injected 3X a day after meals. My husband was so debilitated from the diarrhea and weight loss that he could only lie on the couch. We then moved to New York to be with our grown children and to get specific chemotherapy for pancreatic cancer. Now we are getting state of the art treatment. Dr. Campbell took an oath to do no harm and his attitude and unconcern about my husband's health were appalling. He scared us with his dire predictions of such a limited life span-. Our oncologist here in New York at Sloan Kettering is prolonging his life with newer treatments that Dr. Campbell knew nothing about
Worst oncologist I have ever encountered in 30 years

Dr. Campbell not only attended a one-star medical school, which should be warning enough, but he is arrogant, spends no time listening, makes assumptions, is not thorough, throws a few tests your way and then says "you'll live" when they come back negative. I am a five time primary cancer survivor who has been seen and treated by the best, and that is why I am alive today. But Dr. Campbell, who was my only option when I moved here, really needs to be reviewed because I fear for anyone seeking treatment with this cocky, cruel and obviously under-qualified oncologist who is attempting to compensate for his one star medical school degree by treating a well-informed, concerned (and scared) patient like a child asking for candy before dinner. No, worse. First, I don't have to like a doctor in order to trust him/her, because I've learned that bedside manner isn't the primary goal in determining if a physician is good at his/her job or not. But I do feel an obligation to write a review warning others after what I experienced today when I requested his input and coordination with my internist regarding a new diagnosis that is linked to cancer and was simply told over the phone by his staff that "he looked at your blood work and said you don't have cancer." I don't have to explain how much of a joke a statement like that is, but I will say that cancer is not something you can diagnose OR dismiss by skimming limited blood test results ordered by another physician for reasons other than cancer. This is not written as a personal complaint from a point of anger and disgust. This is written as a warning for all patients who may be referred to him as I was, only to discover that he values his his ego more than the oath he took, and that is DANGEROUS. Some cancers are obvious and easily found and treated. Other cancers are less obvious and require testing, repeat testing, and close observation. This doctor does not understand that, and I refuse to ever allow him to mistreat me again. I have a very complicated medical history which has scared off many doctors who simply would not make the time for me. Too many doctors simply do not take the time to read a patient's chart, and this is one of them. A 15 minute session is not sufficient time to communicate, and this doctor always has had one foot out the door. Today, despite my history and my new diagnosis, which is heavily linked to cancer, I was once again simply dismissed with a ridiculous phone call. When I complained about Dr. Campbell's lack of professionalism I was told to have a nice day and hung up on. I have since my last visit the very same skin lesions that have appeared on my body with each and every cancer diagnosis in the past 25 years. I also have a condition that is heavily linked to cancer. I have a right to be concerned and request further diagnostics and repeat diagnostics. After today, I wouldn't let this man hold a door open for me for fear he would let it slam on me.

Dr. Campbell is very caring and an excellent oncologist. I feel that he truly cares about me personally and it shows in his care and the time he spends with me at my appointments.

I can't recommend Dr. Campbell enough! We walked into the Cancer Center frightened and overwhelmed and left feeling relieved to have such a fantastic Doctor on our Team. My husband really liked him right way, and when your as scared as we are, that means alot! He knew about every appointment we had had, the test results, and already had a plan for our next steps. Dr. Campbell is kind and compassionate, thorough and engaged. We make a two hour round trip drive every day to be with them...gladly, for this level of care. Highly recommended.
