Katie Alguire treats me like I am her only patient! She calls me on weekends to check on me and always seems like she has as long as I need her for when I am visiting her in the office. She never seems rushed!

Five Stars

Dr. Alquire is bright, calming and thorough. She has been open about her lack of experience with my cancer (rare, both the cancer and her attitude) and has done her very best to get me information/tests/appointments/referrals. Even though she is young and may exhibit a slight lack of confidence in voice and manner, I believe she will be a future 'goto' oncologist. She is very skilled in performing bone marrow extraction. I highly recommend her to other cancer patients.
