At Northwestern Medicine, our patient’s feedback is important to us. While different care providers have their own unique strengths, we strive to be as transparent as possible with our quality of care.
Dr. Mulcahy is very thorough and direct. Answers all questions and gets back to you if she consults with another doctor the same day whenever possible. If I have questions I forgot to ask at my appointment I call or send a message and she gets back to me within 24-36 hours. Very pleased with her patient care...
Dr Mulcahy was so knowledgeable and at the same time very compassionate to my story.She put together a plan for action for me and I feel confident that I am in good hands for the rest of my treatment plan. Looking forward to developing a long relationship with dr Mulcahy.
Gave them in my last text but think I sent it too soon. Not only very knowledgeable but nice. Never felt rushed by either Dr Mulcahy or Amanda. And felt like I knew a lot more about my cancer when I left
She follows through on arranging for tests and medications. She listens carefully and asks questions to make sure she understands the needs of the individual. She is always positive and has encouraging words for each situation. She is kind and shows concern for the individual.
Dr. Mulcahy is clearly knowledgeable and a good doctor. My only complaint is that all the waiting times (to be called back, then waiting in a consultation room, then in an exam room, then for a nurse, and then for the doctor) were ridiculously long, and no one apologized or explained the reason for any of the waiting periods. What should have been a maximum one-hour appointment took three hours just because of all the waiting. That's not easy or comfortable for a cancer patient to endure.
Efficiency, expediency, expertise......I have been very fortunate to have excellent oncology care. Dr. Mulcahy was a second opinion back in 2019 for me as I started my journey as she is an expert in my unusual cancer. She agreed with the protocol of my chemo. All has been good until just recently when on a follow up some of my markers are up though my scans seem to look good. My oncologist in Barrington, Dr. Chawla suggested I see Dr. Mulcahy again. She has ordered additional testing for me and I feel I am in expert hands.
Dr. Mulcahey was thorough, patient, and knowledgeable. She explained things to me in a meaningful way and also gave advice that was valuable i.e., to get a bone density exam prior to starting radiation treatment.
Dr Mulcahy is clearly caring and intelligent. Attention to detail and delivery of information are her hallmarks. Her least invasive treatment plan for me is working. I am grateful for this modern care.
Dr. Mulcahy explain thoroughly so you can understand, she have your health best interest and she listen to you. Dr. Mulcahy does not rush to get to her next patient until she have answers all of my questions.
Dr.Mulcahy is one of the most competent, caring and brilliant doctors around. Since I've become a patient of hers, I feel like it was a game changing moment on how my care has been and currently is being managed. I always leave her office with a feeling of calm...
Dr Mulcahy clearly has a wealth of professional experience and qualifications. But she was also careful to walk me through treatment alternatives, using hard data to back up her recomendatins. Very reassuring approach.
Mary F. Mulcahy seems laser focused on knowing about and delivering the best possible treatments in the area of oncology. My health has benefited from her dedication to this field of expertise, and I am highly confident in her care & guidance.
