Doctor Dost took the time to answer my questions and did not rush through the visit. I feel confident in her ability to manage my care and would recommend her as a care provider.

Dr. Dost is an excellent doctor. I was just disappointed that no one explained that there would be a delay.

I hope I don't need to recommend Dr. Dost to anyone, purely due to what she specializes in (breast cancer); however, I would highly recommend her. She has been an amazing doctor, in that she's professional and knowledgeable but also empathetic, caring, involved and accessible. Dr. Dost is an excellent doctor who supported me throughout my cancer journey.
