    I have a tremendous amount of respect for Dr. Davis and her team. I am so thankful that there are amazing, quality individuals that are willing to pore themselves into a career fraught with disappointment and heartbreak. I would not be able to do what she does. I am well aware that my prognosis is grim. However, I have the utmost confidence that Dr. Davis is providing me with the best options available for my particular diagnosis and personal goals. I always look forward to seeing her and hearing what she has to say, even if the news is tough. Dr. Davis has an ability to break down my situation into manageable portions and allows me to understand the complex issues with clarity and trust in a path forward. This nasty disease had plans to end my life a few years ago. I know that Dr. Davis and her colleagues have given me substantial more quality time to spend with loved ones and pursue adventures than sarcoma had in mind for me. Too bad sarcoma, Dr. Davis had other plans, and my family and I liked those better.

    Hello. Dr. Davis has been my cancer doctor for the last three years, and she has to me been just fantastic. She's very concerned about me, very concerned about my family and she's straightforward, honest, and she is very aggressive and I appreciate that.

    I have seen Dr. Davis for the past roughly year. And she's been a very very good provider. She's very knowledgeable, very compassionate, and has afforded me very good care.

    I have absolute confidence in Dr. Davis. She is amazing. If I ever came across someone with my illness, I would share my story with them and sing praises about Dr Davis and OHSU.

    Not sure I know about all the medications I will be given but given a notebook about the treatment. Don't think I know all that they have planned, know also some is based on my reaction to the treatment.

    Dr. Davis and the entire staff are always very professional, friendly and show concern for my health and well-being. I would go nowhere else for treatment of my cancer.
