1. The patient comes first.
2. Maximize efficiency and minimize trauma.
3. We can't always control what we are dealt especially with a new cancer diagnoses, but we can do our best to be aggressive, stay up-to-date with technology, follow the standard of care, and initiate an approach maximizing quantity and quality of life for our patients.
4. Surgical education is paramount to patient safety and improving patient outcomes
5. Robotic surgery -- or more apt "computer enhanced surgery" -- is the future.

Dr. Hogg had reviewed her notes from a previous surgery she had performed on me. She was very aware of my situation.
Dr. Hogg spent time taking and explaining question. I never felt that she was in a rush to move to her next patient
Dr Hogg was informative and reassuring, while being completely professional.
*Dr. Hogg did an EXCELLENT job organizing the info concerning my condition. She organized it by overall statistics & then focused on my situation, dividing my situation into "high risk features" and "worrisome features". I admired her organization.
*Dr. Hogg was amazing she spent time with me & explained & showed that to me so that I could understand.
Dr. Hogg is clear, friendly, explains what I need to know. and, she gave me excellent news!!
*Dr. Hogg explained everything in words I could understand. I would definitly recommend this dr. to friends & family.
I felt comfortable talking with Dr Hogg.
Dr.Hogg has been a bright spot in this otherwise dark experience. She explained my cancer to me (which my oncologist had not done) and helped my husband and I understand not only what was happening to me but what all the options are for my type of cancer. She was warm, funny, personable, and I absolutely will recommend her to anyone who has the unfortunate need for her services in the future.
she is the best doctor
