Dr Stupp is inconsiderate and lacks empathy. He was 50 minutes late for this appointment and missed my last scheduled appointment completely. Since my first post diagnosis meeting with him he has given me zero time or attention. He is unapologetic about his total disregard for my welfare. During the 10 minutes I spent with him today I found him arrogant and dismissive of my questions.

Dr. Stupp’s knowledge, expertise, and fantastic bedside manner make coming to NM for my four month follow ups as relaxing an experience as it can be. I know that even if the news isn’t going to be good—which has not happened yet, thankfully—Dr. Stupp will not only have a plan, but he will be confident in the next steps, too. I’d also like to acknowledge Karyn Schmidt. She is incredibly conversational in the best possible way. She “gets it.� I always enjoy the time my wife and I get to spend chatting with her. Additionally, anytime concerns have come up and I message her in MyChart, she responds promptly and with great care and consideration. I couldn’t ask for a better care team than the one I have at NM.
