Oncology reviews in Portola
She is an amazing doctor. She pays attention to the patient. Her focus is entirely on the patient, how the patient is feeling and what is going on with the patient. She has a very patient approach to people. She is very professional at first then she becomes more personable. We never had any problem with her and even if she squeezes us in. We are sticking with her and her services.”
The staff at Highland Oncology Center has made a grueling, scary process bearable through their attitude, concern and professionalism. Everything went well through a series of 15 treatments lasting up to six hours each with only a couple of exceptions. On two occasions the nurses did not correctly access my medication port, causing great pain, and on one other occasion a third nurse bled on my port when taking off his glove because his cut finger was not properly bandaged. All the other visits went very well; the nurses went out of their way to provide comfort and make the procedure as stress-free as possible.”
The first time I met the doctor he seemed ok. He shows me the tools and the screen where I can also watch the procedure and see the inside of my bladder as he goes along. Just a note: a healthy bladder is a beautiful color inside - it looks like another world and it's so amazing.While the scope is looking this way and that - he is explaining what I am seeing - air bubbles, the bladder wall..and then he says, "and you have a cancer tumor right there." WHHAAAAATTT?? I don't expect that news to be delivered like that - just so "matter of factly." Please wait until I am dressed and in an upright position!He removes the scope so I can get dressed and asks me to meet him in his office just next door. I do so, and the next few minutes are a blur - other than it's a small tumor - caught early and will be just a quick removal at an out-patient surgical center. He tells me how the surgery will be performed and I may leave the surgical center with or without a catheter. He asked me if I had any questions (I think) but I just shake my head. He then points to his surgery scheduling folks and says they will take care of me and he leaves.My head is still spinning a little bit but I get my surgical appointment made for Monday ”
The waiting room is spacious, clean, with plenty of light and not too many out of date magizines. The front office staff is personable; always asking how I am doing.
The nurses who draw my blood are highly skilled and excellent at what they do.The nurses know to wrap my arm over the blood draw site with a self sticking bandage and not to use a Band-Aid.
The exam rooms are of a sufficient size as to not feel boxed in.
Sometimes I have to wait for Dr
I highly recomment Dr.
I had this appointment since previous office visit in January. I arrived a little early, was promptly taken from the general waiting room to an examining room, where a staffer handled routine matters such as taking temperature, checking BP, etc. Staffer told me Dr later Dr. ”
He is very good. He is willing to give me references to other doctors. He is a pleasant man, who is interested in your total well being as well as your cancer. His office environment is OK. Sometime the University Health System is too big and serves too many people to be really comfortable. There are pros and cons, they do a good job, if you are prepared to wait to be seen, it is good. You don't get any quickies there. When I needed him, he was very available. I don't need to see him often now because I am three years away from my surgery, so I see his nurse practitioner. The chairs are comfortable, which is nice because you have to sit in them for a long time.”
