Dr Brown is very good but I also appreciate Dr Hughes.


This provider is very, very busy. Her pager went off repeatedly during our visit, but she handled that well and gave me the time needed to address my questions.


My experience at the WFU Cancer Center have all been excellent. I have been treated kindly and get professionally.


VERY impressed with Dr. Brown and her assistant.


I had questions about side effects of medications. Dr. Brown was very thorough in her answers. I did not feel rushed and felt she was very caring and interested in my follow-up care.


Dr. Doris Brown is a professional who has a good "sense of the situation". She treated me with courtesy and kindness. I also liked the two Residents who, under the guidance of Dr. Brown, worked on my case. Drs. Ryan Hughes and Michael (can not remember his surname).


again, outstanding


This appt was in regard to upcoming radiation therapy for breast cancer.


I already put this comment on another page but I'll put it here too. Dr Brown spent a lot of time with us to explain everything and made us feel much better.


Dr. Brown really eased my mind about my upcoming treatment plan. I did not feel rushed when asking my questions and I felt my treatment plan was structured and individualized for me - not a one-size-fits-all treatment plan.


Dr. Brown is terrific in patient interactions and it appears with mentoring residents and fellows as well. She should be considered for executive roles.


She is compassionate, knowledgeable and friendly. Very approachable. #6. On 4/5.


Dr. Brown is phenomenal.


*Dr. Brown is a very knowledgeable and kind doctor. Very caring and concerned with any issues about my health.
