My care provider was great. My only issue is in scheduling. You have many patients that need appointments into the next calander year and your "system" is not set up to do that. I was and am frustrated that I could not set up an appointment for 6 months out. My other care providers are able to schedule 1, 2 and 3 years out. I think that it is time to UPDATE your "system" for scheduling.

This provider is an asset to the Kadlec Hematology and Chemotherapy Unit. She is well informed about this portion of my health care, listened to my questions/concerns, asked many more questions that she provided advice on and did so with a personable and professional manner. She is in a supportive roll to the Medical Oncologist I see there and is a compliment to their shared responsibilities towards patients. I was most impressed. It's a scary situation to be in, she understands this and her "bedside" manner is friendly, informative and situationally provides a comfortable atmosphere to speak frankly and honestly with her. I'm glad she is part of my Oncology team.

Karen Dubois was filling in for my regular Dr. whom was out of the office for the entire week. Karen recommended follow-up appointment in 1 week but due to 2 different schedulers, neither put me on the schedule. Had to call multiple times the following week and talk with a couple of people with multiple answers regarding the followup that never happened.
