    Dr. King is a wonderful doctor, who makes her patients top priority. She is kind, compassionate, and so knowledgeable. I will be forever grateful for the treatment and care she provided through my diagnosis and treatment for PPC. Lord willing, next July, I will celebrate 10 years since my diagnosis.

    I was referred to Dr. King by my gyn (who has been friends with her for over 20 years). I had supreme confidence going into surgery that all would go well & it did. Dr. King made me feel as comfortable as possible & continued that with the subsequent visits.

    I would heartily recommend Dr. King to any of my family or friends who experience the same issues (if they didn't have or trust their doctor(s) recommendations). I found out after my appt. was set that Dr. King is the specialist my best friend sees on a regular basis, so she felt relieved that I was seeing someone she trusts much for her medical care/needs.

    [...] As a single mom I am eternally grateful Dr King could squeeze me in for an assessment so swiftly and then perform my surgery so quickly. I am mindful in my follow up appts. that squeezing a new patient in might mean I wait a few minutes or the Dr might not have the ability to chit chat with me for an extended period as she is probably providing more women simply with the opportunity to address and attack their cancer with. the same sense of urgency.
