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 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
*Dr. Hogg explained my upcoming surgery very well, and also the potential risks involved in doing the procedure.
Generated confidence in the up coming procedure.
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.
