I feel a thousand pounds lighter!!!

After receiving my diagnosis of ovarian cancer nearly a month ago, I have been stressed to the max!!! My mom & I decided to go through Karmanos Cancer institute near downtown Detroit as they pride themselves on providing a “team” of Dr’s and making you feel at ease and that they genuinely care!! NOT EVEN CLOSE!!!! The wait time, every appointment was outrageous! You thought you waited for Dr Hicks????? Dr Morris was very robotic and not very detailed. So, I switched to Karmanos in Mt Clemens Michigan! There I was given Dr Hicks as my surgeon! We met with him on Monday & just as everyone else has said, he’s kind, professional, gives lots of details and is not bothered by all the questions! He’s a riot, don’t get me wrong, but I went from thinking I was dying to skipping out of the office ready to face chemo so I can continue to live my life! THANK YOU Dr Hicks & the entire staff at McLaren for always making me feel important! It goes a LONG WAY❤️

His 2nd opinion saved my life!

I had a biopsy done by my gynecologist who referred me to what I thought was a reputable gynecologic oncologist, that was an incorrect assumption! That 1st oncologist wanted to do a partial vulvectomy, a disfiguring surgery that at 43 years old had me horrified I would no longer be attractive to my husband. I went back to that oncologist days before surgery with last minute questions & concerns but did not feel comfortable with his attitude or post op pain control so I went to Dr. Hicks for a 2nd opinion and am currently recovering from a non disfiguring laser surgery instead of a vulvectomy! Dr. Hicks also found areas that were not diagnosed by the 1st oncologist and we both saw the lab reports didnt reflect cervical lesions the 1st oncologist was going to supposedly treat me for. When my insurance EOB came, I also found he billed for an endoscopy that was not done!!! Dr Hicks literally saved my femininity and my life and I couldnt ask for a specialist with a better bedside manner, he drew pictures so my husband and I understood what we were facing and despite the many tears I have cried over this diagnosis, Dr Hicks actually had me confident and laughing by the time my 1st appointment was over and he got me right in for surgery and his staff was great about getting back to me after surgery when I needed help for pain. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Hicks, his staff and the Alice Gustafson Center, how many dr.'s waiting rooms have staff offering snacks and Starbucks for free while you wait?!? I am so blessed to have met and have continuing treatment from Dr. Hicks, and can't thank him enough for his personality, his understanding and for making the worst possible diagnosis easier to cope with emotionally. Anyone needing a gynecological oncologist I would save your time and go straight to Dr. Hicks.

If you have the time to be treated by an excellent, caring physician, see Dr. Hicks. I have seen some complaints about wait time, however he spends as much time with his patients as they need.
