    I feel like she answered my questions, explained things so I understood, and when she didn't know the exact answer, said she go gather the input and let me know. Which she did a few minutes later.

    As a physician, I don't like being on the receiving end of health care. I really didn't know what to expect, but Dr. Chambers was warm and welcoming. We had a great conversation. She answered all my questions. Glad I chose her.

      I had many questions about why chemotherapy was not being offered. When I attempted to ask questions pertaining to research I had read her demeanor immediately changed. She was visibly upset that I even mentioned it. She declined to discuss any of the research I attempted to provide and said curtly that she did not need to see it. She said that based on the "tiny" size of my cancer she would never recommend chemotherapy. Once again I attempted to get clarification and she just shut me down saying I needed to find another oncologist. She was not empathetic and basically made me feel stupid for asking questions about my "tiny" cancer that had "already been completely removed".

      When I first started coming to UK for health care, the quality of care and wait time were good. The doctor Is always running significantly behind now. She isn't always clear about recommended treatments or the financial cost.

      *Dr. Chambers is fairly detached and does not convey much compassion or interest. She is also ill-informed about my actual treatment plan & follow-up.

      As a long term MBC patient, who while grateful to be alive, has a less is more attitude and cranky about side effects, I appreciate the fact that my oncologist is willing to walk with on this and was there for me when I wanted to take a break from one of my meds. When after 6 months it looked like I had a new metastasis, and I wasn't ready to accept the side affects yet, she understood how important it was to me. She did recommend I restart treatment but honored my wishes. She didn't ever make me feel the target of "I told you so". I am very proactive in my own treatment and she has made several referrals for services that improve my quality of life. I don't know if the return to tx has stopped the progression but she is proceeding in a calm measured way and has made sure I know to make an interim appointment if I am concerned. MBC be a slow grind and part of my emotional survival is anchored in medical providers who listen and tailor therapy to my life and goals. Her "steady as we go" attitude has been invaluable

      *Dr. Chambers explained the on arm shot was because of the 2 week period between treatments. With three weeks between current treatment and Taxol beginning I would not need the shot. So grateful. It is harsh and makes me so sick.
