Dr. Hogg used visual aids to help me understand the cancer, as well as clear explanations. There were 4 people altogether in the meeting (one with me, two on the phone) and she was very open to this, and to my desire to get a second opinion. I was impressed with her knowledge and clarity, and by the end I felt that I had a lot of knowledge about the cancer and recommended treatment.
My experience was satisfactory and very glad I choose your facility.
She was great!!
Dr. Hogg took all the time I needed to understand the surgical process and what I could expect. After talking with her I have great confidence in her abilities.
There should be a "not applicable" choice for all questions. Like #4 above. In my case there were no decisions to be made
I was very pleased with all aspects of working with *Dr. Hogg from day 1 of my diagnosis through my surgery & hospital stay.
