Patient Comments

    She was upfront with her diagnosis and questioned some findings that didn’t produce answers. She also suggested next steps, treatment options etc: She really did a good job of educating my daughter and myself so we had clarity when we go back to Dr Pham. She was thorough and helped me be productive. ( blood panel+). I am hoping she will be part of my cancer footstep as her knowledge is immense...and up to date. A very good consult.

    My experience with Dr. Borate was absolutely excellent. She listened to what I had to say and she explained things to me, and her nurse Samantha is absolutely wonderful when I call. She answers the questions and, or if she can't she gets them referred to Dr. Borate, and I truly appreciate both of them so much. They're an excellent addition, and I would recommend them both highly.

    Yes, I.... Dr. Bronte is absolutely wonderful. I appreciate the time she spends with me and I know I'm.... I make her late. I apologize, but she's caring. She cares about what I'm talking about, and she listens and that's very important to me because in my past experiences with other doctors, that doesn't happen very often, so cannot thank her enough for being open minded and listening to my thoughts and willing to work with me and my other doctor and I just appreciate her. Thank you.
