    How was your appointment with Dr. McDermott?

    Jan 07, 2022
    My primary care doctor recommended seeing Dr. McDermott after sharing concerns about a lump on my breast. I am so thankful to have met her; from that moment on, every decision she and I made about my care was crucial to my survival chances. She kept doing tests until she found cancer, even beyond negative mammograms and MRIs. She believed my concerns, and I always trusted her because of her assertiveness and expertise. After surgery, she quickly helped me put my oncologist care team together and even shared my case, so my doctors were always on the same page. In less than ten months, I had surgery, chemo, and radiation therapy, all in the hands of experts she introduced me to. Yes, she is direct and to the point, but when you are dealing with a critical illness, you need honesty, short to the point, quick, and intelligent Doctors just like Dr. McDermott. She always made me comfortable and in the right hands. I would highly recommend her; she is excellent.
