Actually, I would like to give a 20 (or even more) for Dr. Matei. I have had a bad experience with my oncologist, which caused me to seek out Dr. Matei. Dr. Matei and her team were very informed/aware of my case and history. I was treated with kindness, gentleness, and honesty. Most importantly, I was given hope and clear information on what my future treatment would be - please know that I walked in to this appointment having very, very little hope and under the impression that I had no treatment options should my cancer return. When you meet with Dr. Matei, it is absolutely clear that she is brilliant and knowledgeable, yet she is kind and gentle. She made direct eye contact with me throughout the appointment and never once looked at a computer. I would like to be the president of the Dr. Matei fan club!
