Use your head, not emotions

If you have been referred to Dr. Brose because of your diagnosis, consider yourself fortunate that someone was looking after your best interests. Don' t we worry that we are not doing everything we can? Seeing Dr. Brose is doing everything you can. Look at the drugs that are now available to treat you...her name is on the clinical trials. Look at the future of what may be available to extend your life...her team is working on it. I was alittle frustrated with the other review here. First, it has not been our experience, and, two - their personalities/bedside manners are irrelevant when we are talking about who knows best how to fight my cancer. This is the gold standard in fighting your specific cancer. They are direct, and their sole focus on your rare cancer gives them some authority to tell you how best to fight this. To be honest, tho' very direct at times, Dr. Brose has not been wrong once yet in my treatment. And her staff have almost as many years of focusing just on these rare cancers. Why would you pass on this opportunity? This is a university hospital and Dr. Brose's patients come from across the country. Prepare for a longer than normal wait. Maybe even an hour or more. Bring your computer or book, something to eat and drink. Adapt....and be thankful for this chance.

Clinical, not personal.

Dr. Brose has an initial demeanor that comes off as extremely kind and caring. With time, one realizes that there is a controlling streak behind that demeanor. She works, as she likes to say, with a "team". It's her nurses, interns, assistants, etc. It's clear from the start that the "team" perceives themselves as the "best"; and the attitudes reflect that. Unfortunately, what seems to take priority are the (pharma-funded) clinical studies, and plugging patients into that genre - over the emotional comfort of the patient. If the patient doesn't fit into the "mold", or actually prefers to play a role in their own decision-making for their care - they are eventually treated as "errant students". You feel it from the moment you step off the elevator: clinical, not personal. And though it isn't evident initially from the doctor herself, eventually the controlling streak seeps out in the form of condescension and chastising. Not a stress-free, caring approach - nor the best environment in which to support the immune system. By now, the "Best in Medical Care" should have been aptly educated about how NOT to treat patients as children, and to respect their decisions to play a decisive role in their own care. In the end - even clinical trials are supposed to be about improving the patient's lot, not just lining the Pharma industry's pockets. If you are a patient looking to be led by the hand and not raise any questions about the direction/options for your care - then Dr. Brose is for you. If, on the other hand, you don't want to feel intimidated, condescended to, or you choose to be an active partner in the decision-making part of your care, then I would keep searching. I never truly felt anyone within "the team" cared about me personally. Excellence in the science doesn't automatically translate into Excellence in care.
