July 21, 2014

Good

July 20, 2014

Very recommended care to others

July 15, 2014

There is no greater testimony of the tremendous care I received by Dr. Soissen then the fact that I am alive today. No question went unanswered, no fear went unaleaviated, no options went unreaserched. I went to Huntsman because the oncologist I was referred to was not even willing to discuss options. Dr. Siossen explained options in a way that allowed ME to make the choice in how I would be treated. He was honest and compassionate and patient and as far as I and my family are concerned he saved my life. Nothing I say on this survey can ever really express my gratitude for him and for Huntsman.

July 12, 2014

I would strongly recommend the care providers at Huntsman to others.

July 10, 2014

Great staff, thank you all.

June 28, 2014

Very good experience for me. I met with the Dr. and with two interns; I did feel like our conversation was a little restricted because of the presence of so many people. But I understand why they were there and am fine with that.

June 23, 2014

Dr. Sossian is awesome!

June 23, 2014

dr Soisson was very kind and made me feel very comfortable and was thorough in answering all my questions

May 18, 2014

I FELT VERY MUCH AT EASE AND COMFORTABLE WITH MY VISIT, AND GOING FORWARD. I FELT WELL TAKEN CARE OF!

Dr. Soisson is a wonderful doctor. I always look forward to my appointments and being able to visit with Dr. Soisson.

Very concerned about me.

He was very encouraging about my health in future months. Included other health issues as well.

May 13, 2014

Friendly, compassionate, skillful.

May 12, 2014

Many of these questions do not apply. The exam was a yearly follow up to surgery I had 7 yrs ago. As to recommendation, if an individual had uterine cancer, I would recommend this physician. To friends who did not, I would not.

May 06, 2014

I am cancer-free, so not many of the above questions apply. The exam portion of my visit takes very little time. Dr. Soisson and I mostly just visit. : )

April 26, 2014

I could tell the doctor had spent time reviewing my information and knew what recommendations to give me. He listened to my questions and gave me easy to understand explanations.

April 21, 2014

Dr. Soisson was so thorough! He started from the beginning, was very patient, and covered all the bases. I had read a plethora of material before I got there on my condition, he covered everything I had read. He was easy to be around, seemed caring and kind. I really feel like I am not only in good hands, but have the BEST care available.

April 19, 2014

I HAVE ONLY THE VERY BEST FEELING ABOUT THE CARE PROVIDED TO ME!!!

April 17, 2014

I wish Dr. Soisson would have ask me if I had any questions or concerns, and took a little more time with that.

April 09, 2014

good

March 30, 2014

my care provider told me that he would have his office call me the next day to schedule surgery but I never received a phone call

March 30, 2014

This medical team was more than "very good" could describe.

March 30, 2014

Dr. Soisson and staff are wonderful! thank you.

March 18, 2014

Everybody was wonderful!

March 17, 2014

I appreciate input concerning pain management

March 12, 2014

I appreciate that Dr. Soisson comes across as patient while I'm going through my list of questions, and gives me the attention I need to feel comfortable with my condition. I feel like I can ask him anything...

March 03, 2014

This was my first appointment with Dr. Soisson. I was amazed at his level of care for a total stranger.

February 27, 2014

I've never had anyone with any medical degree be as kind, helpful, friendly, & genuinely concerned as your staff was.

February 18, 2014

Dr. Soisson. You are always concerned about doing the best job that you can to keep me healthy. Thank you for referring me to Dr. Hsu for additional care--I see Dr. Hsu this Friday. See you in 3 months.

February 10, 2014

The experience with the entire staff at Huntsman was over and above what I ever would have expected especially given how busy everyone is.

January 25, 2014

Awesome experience

January 23, 2014

The doctor and staff were wonderful...I am completely confident that I will receive the proper diagnosis and care.

January 23, 2014

Awesome as always.

January 20, 2014

I will continue recommending Huntsman to anyone I hear has been diagnosed with Cancer!

January 16, 2014

I love Dr. Soisson. He is a very caring, considerate person and it shows in his work. I have recommended him to anyone who needs his kinds of services.

January 13, 2014

Very friendly and concerned. Seemed to be hurried and did not stop and let ask questions.

January 11, 2014

...care provider "reads" more than medical journals... very impressive!

December 09, 2013

Dr. Soisson has always answered all of my questions, and has helped to "solve" issues relating to my cancer experience. He is a very caring individual, who always takes time with you!!!! Awesome!!!!

December 07, 2013

Dr. Andrew Soisson and Kyle, the resident physician, were kind and thorough with a sensitive topic and exam. they helped put my mind at ease.

November 25, 2013

My husband and I came away from the appoiintment much for informed and confident that we made the right decisiion to come to Hunstman as soon as possible

November 25, 2013

I have always loved Dr. Soisson! I especially appreciate his genuine interest in me as a person. I have never felt like I was just a number, nor that my appointment was just something he had to get through. He is always optimistic and caring, which is deeply appreciated when you're dealing with one of the most frightening of all possible diagnoses.

November 18, 2013

I asked if Dr. Soisson knew I had a blood clot, a side effect of my medication. He said yes. He then went on about some studies that said blood clots were not a side effect of my medication and that it was controversial. There was nothing controversial about my experience. It happened! Yet the doctor seemed to dismiss the importance of my experience. His response was "Take an aspirin." No specifics were given. This may have been good advice, but it seemed like he didn't believe me or that what I had to say was unimportant.

November 11, 2013

Dr. Soisson always listens and answers any questions that I have. Sometimes I don't know what questions to ask, but he always explains so well, that he answers any questions that I could have. Dr. Soisson is always patient and kind.Dr. Soisson also gives hope and reassurance.

November 08, 2013

Dr soisson explained all treatments and before making up my mind about having surgery, he reccomended i talk to a radiologist for his opinion on radiology treatment.

October 29, 2013

I initially saw a resident (Amalia), and she was very friendly and took a good history. I then saw Dr. Soisson who is amazing. His knowledge and obvious cooncern for me were extremely appreciated. His exam was gentle and he put me at ease. He explained what he knew to be going on at the time very clearly and he obviously cared about me as a person as well as a patient.

October 28, 2013

Everyone with whom I came in contact was very caring and professional.

October 22, 2013

Dr Soisson was extremely insightful to my personal feelings for a rest from cancer treatment. I appreciate his suggestion that I talk with Dr Werner for further confirmation. Thank you!

October 21, 2013

good!!

October 21, 2013

He would ask me a question but really wouldn't give me time to answer it

October 15, 2013

Doctor Soisson was exellent

October 14, 2013

Dr Soisson explained my problem to the level in which I understood he also explained the different options of treatments.

October 09, 2013

After several followup visits I am amazed at the memory for insignificant details.

October 08, 2013

Again I cannot complain everything explained clearly thank you all

October 07, 2013

dr. soisson, christina sok, terrie, mary and sarai were very kind and helpful. sarai spent nearly 30 minutes with me explaining things about the hospital, its services, etc. dr. soisson was amazing. he made me feel so comfortable with him and his manner and ease with dr./pt. interaction made the whole frightening experience of facing surgery, so much more bearable. he spent nearly an hour with me explaining and answering all my questions, and terrie walked me through the whole process of what will happen on friday when i come in for the surgery. christina sok further explained her role as the doctor's assistant during the surgery and i am completely confident in their ability to see me through this. everyone at both facilities has made me feel like i am their only patient. i work at two other hospitals in the salt lake area, both in cardiovascular intensive care, and i think every hospital could take lessons from yours regarding customer service. it is the best.

September 27, 2013

cool

September 23, 2013

Dr.Soisson and staff are excelent

September 19, 2013

I loved the enthusaism and professionalism of my care givers. I am so happy to have a team such as they to help me.

September 02, 2013

appreciate the information Dr. Soisson and Dr. Werner provide.

August 29, 2013

Dr. Soissen and his assistant Dr. Howell were amazing every step of the way. They listened to my concerns and took them seriously. They address every possible issue and all my options and let me decide. Also his nurses Mary and Terry were just amazing and kind and patient.

August 27, 2013

The total experience was positive.

August 20, 2013

I would have liked to be able to tell the doctor about some concerns but was afraid it was too small to mention.

August 19, 2013

Well, I can't say enough good stuff about Dr. Soisson and the excellent care that I receive. I met with Dr. Agarwal and Dr. Bragg. Dr. Bragg was excellent and explaining surgery that I will have. Dr. Agarwal is concerned about me and will take care of me. I am so lucky, and blessed to have 3 of the best surgeons in the world. Dr. Lowrance didn't want me to experience too much stress in my exam so he was able to put me under anesthesia the next day (after appointment). He wanted to know exactly what care he would need to be giving, what procedure, and certainly put my mind at rest. Dr. Soisson, you are right! I will be OK. I may have a hard time ahead for a little while, but all will be well. I ran 6 miles this morning. Dr. Soisson, I really appreciate the care that you have given me. Have a great day!

August 15, 2013

very thorough

August 13, 2013

I was very impressed with everyone. It was interesting having

August 13, 2013

I met with Dr. Soisson last week and he scheduled me to meet with Dr. Agarwal and Dr. Lowrance this week--Stephanie helped schedule appointments and is very good at getting me in to see them this week. As usual, Dr. Soisson, you are wonderful and caring and have my well being uppermost in your mind and treat me as if I were your most important patient. Thank you for the care that you give me. Dr. Agarwal and Dr. Bragg were wonderful this morning in explaining procedures/surgery and what to expect in way of surgery and what could go wrong--hernias, etc, --It was especially helpful to know that I shouldn't lift anything heavy after surgery for six weeks. I appreciate all that Dr. Soisson, Dr. Agarwal, Dr. Bragg and Dr. Lowrance will be doing for me to help make my life better. Thank you.

August 12, 2013

Dr. Soisson is a very caring and a professional individual. He makes the patient feel at ease and trusting in his care.

August 10, 2013

Dr. Soisson made me feel at ease. I was confident that I was in good hands and appreciated his help with my medical needs.

August 06, 2013

very dismissive of my concerns and made me feel like I was wasting his time

August 06, 2013

I have only good things to say, very pleased.

July 25, 2013

Dr. Soisson--You are the best, more caring doctor that I have ever had. Thank you for the care and concern that you have for me. Even though you see lots of patients you make me feel like I am the most important patient and you are providing me with the care emotionally and physically that I need. Thank you very much. Also, it was a good idea to have biopsies while sedated--thank you for doing biopsies.

July 24, 2013

Dr. Soisson is my hero. I just wish I could thank him enough. He is always cheery and makes me smile.

July 23, 2013

could not be better

July 17, 2013

procedure was fast, and the surgeon explained the procedure.

July 12, 2013

he is the best

July 09, 2013

The doctor was in a hurry this day. I didn't get to ask my questions.

June 17, 2013

Dr. Soisson and his staff are just excellent. His explanations are concise, to the point, informative, and yet provided in such a friendly manner that I do not feel overwhelmed or stupid.

June 10, 2013

I wish that Dr. Soisson could be cloned -- THAT's what I would recommend to others! Except it's like having an undiscovered vacation paradise and keeping it a secret -- I'd hate it if he got so busy that I'd never have to see him again. Of course, I hope that I never NEED to see him again, so I have some mixed feelings!

June 05, 2013

Good explanations and all questions were given complete validation.

June 04, 2013

he didn't seem in a hurry, which is rare for doctors! seemed very patient and kind.

May 22, 2013

Dr. Soisson is the best! I am very grateful that he is my doctor.

May 21, 2013

I felt like he was in a hurry and not concerned about my concerns. He isn't normally like this.

May 21, 2013

Dr. Soisson was very thorough in explaining my diagnosis, prognosis and treatment options. He was able to answer all of my questions and put me at ease. I trust Dr. Soisson to assist me in making the best possible decisions in my care.

May 10, 2013

I always feel like an old friend with Dr Soisson; I have recommended him to several others

May 06, 2013

Visiting doctors has always been my worse fear. I get a lot of trepidation and hyperventilation whenever I go to see my doctors. But, Doctor Soisson's friendliness and affable manners puts me at ease. He makes me feel that we have known each other for a long time, and he always, explains whatever I need to know in a manner that I understand what he is telling me about my condition and is always very reassuring about my condition. After every examinations that I have, I always go home feeling good knowing that everything is alright with me and that there's no other problem to worry about. I trust his care and opinions.

May 06, 2013

It was all good.

April 29, 2013

Dr. Soissoin is amazing and really takes excellent care of his patients. He goes the extra mile and shows it

April 16, 2013

Dr. Soisson was amazing. he explained my diagnosis in a way I could easily understand. He had thoroughly reviewed my records and we quickly made a plan of action.

April 12, 2013

good

March 26, 2013

I am amazed at the recall of the Dr. regarding my personal life/problems after no visit for 6 months.

March 25, 2013

ALL GOOD

March 25, 2013

I felt everyone was in a hurry. My news is good and I was happy about that. I did have questions and concernsthat I didn't feel I had time to ask.

March 22, 2013

I was very impressed with Dr. Soisson and his assistants. They were very thorough and helpful, answering all my questions.

March 18, 2013

wonderful staff

March 14, 2013

I appreciate all the excellent care I am receiving.

March 07, 2013

Great exprience. Even though my problem is minor compared to other patients I always felt like the most important person there. Dr. Soission is wonderful and he makes a scary experience more comfortable.

March 06, 2013

Thank you for advising a quick response... Sounds important that we move aggressively.

February 26, 2013

I am cancer-free, so our visits are mostly just friendly chats.

February 19, 2013

good

February 13, 2013

Loved our Dr!

February 11, 2013

the dr was very good about explaining about what my options where,& what was going to happen

February 10, 2013

The doctor was so fast, that he was in and out before I realized what was going on and that the appt was over. The nurse (Terrie) was the one who answered most of my questions and she was a dear.

February 04, 2013

my follow-up appointments are VERY short. Not much time for conversation about issues.

February 03, 2013

Dr. was behind and trying to hurry but this was a follow up to check if cancer had returned. I wasn't actively ill. I had one question about my heart that was answered hastily.

February 01, 2013

The doctor I saw took the time to exam, explain and recommend a course of action. Because of his friendly professional manner and experience I trusted this doctor and followed his recommendations. I would definitely recommend him to another and would see him again myself.

January 30, 2013

Again everyone was so wonderful and helped to make me comfortable. I left my appointment relieved and confident that I know I am in good hands.

January 29, 2013

What can I say about Dr. Soissen except he saved my life. I was told, not asked, by another oncologist not with Huntsman that a radical hysterectomy was my only option, but that was not true. Dr. Soissen explained several options and the side effects and cure rate of each. He put me back in charge of my treatment, but made sure I had all the information, good and bad , to make the decision that was best for me.

January 28, 2013

Dr. Soisson explained the medical treatment that I have been receiving to my husband since we are becoming more concerned about my health--Dr. Solisson is doing a great job taking care of me--Dr. Soisson is wonderful, caring and a great doctor--I can't say enough good things about the care that I receive and his concern for me--He makes me feel like I am his only, most important patient. Also he doesn't rush into unnecessary surgery--

January 28, 2013

You can't beat Dr. Soisson!

January 21, 2013

Dr. Soisson is a gem, a true hero to me. He always makes me smile. I can't even imagine my experience of having cancer without him. I trust him completely. He has never once even caused me an ounce of pain or discomfort in any of my visits. He has a gentle, expert touch and a warm bedside manner.

January 14, 2013

The best description is "superb."

January 10, 2013

Both my husband & I were impressed at the thoroughness of my consultation. Neither of us expected the surgeon to spend such time w/us. Very helpful & reassuring.

December 26, 2012

My first impression was that Dr Soisson talked very fast, which had me slightly flustered. During the course of the visit he would leave the room and return (for me to change clothes etc). At one point I was mis-understanding the options being given, but finally understood I needed to say I was okay with the surgery option and why. From that point I felt much better about the communication with Dr. Soisson.

December 18, 2012

I would recommend my Doctor to anyone I ever come in contact with that even thinks that they have the same problems as I. I am very imformed and extermly confident in my Doctor and the care I am receiving.

December 18, 2012

Dr. Soisson is quick but thorough....I love this.

December 18, 2012

Instilled confidence and calmness during the visit. Explained very well what was happening.

December 18, 2012

Dr Soisson has an excellent reputation in the community

December 04, 2012

Overall very informative. Would have liked to be informed of what to expect after surgery, i.e. swelling, bruising, muscle aches, etc.

December 03, 2012

I especially appreciate my doctor's willingness to take time with me and show personal concern. He always asks questions about my life in general as well as talking about my health. I love that he treats me like a real person, and always has.

November 20, 2012

Super

November 19, 2012

I have been to a few hospital in my time and boy I have to say your Doctors are the GREATEST

November 05, 2012

At one point he was talking to me while completing some forms at the counter. I informed him I have a hearing loss and he immediately turned around and said, "I should turn around and talk to you then." I was very impressed that he understood the impact of hearing loss, knew what to do about it and cared enough to make a difference. I wish all doctors understood what hearing loss means. Thank you.

November 02, 2012

I wish every hospital/clinic that I have been to were as friendly, caring, and supportive as what I found here.

October 30, 2012

You can't beat Dr. Soisson, ever!

October 29, 2012

Dr. Soisson is the very BEST. I am 5 years out from my cancer treatment and I never miss a followup appt because he is such a delight to see and gives you so much confidence. The appts are always right on time... never a burden.

October 16, 2012

Dr. Soisson is an excellent provider. He is very encouraging and very good at explaining everything. I appreciated being given copies of my reports for my files without having to ask for them.

October 01, 2012

I was quite nervous to come see Dr Soissen. I could not have been more pleased when I did meet him! From the moment he walked into the examination room he was personable and I felt so comfortable and at ease. He called me by name and his quick exam and assessment of my condition were done painlessly. Because of unexpected surgeries this day, my appointment had been moved twice already. I knew that Dr. Soissen had made room for me in his schedule, because of the distance I had traveled to come. Therefore, I was even more impressed when he took several minutes with me to explain options, even sketching a few pictures to make his presentation more clear to me. His entire bedside manner, his presentation - gave me confidence and trust in him. What a wonderful experience. I will continue my treatment with Dr. Soissen.

September 11, 2012

I am amazed by this care provider, his personal interest and willingness to answer questions, work out appt changes.

September 10, 2012

Loved Dr. Soisson.

August 28, 2012

Dr. Soisson is awesome and very compassionate.

July 31, 2012

All upbeat, listened, discussed, concluded, acted.

July 25, 2012

I felt that the doctor did not fully address my concerns over my abdominal pains. However, he did give my husband and me a lot of confidence in my recovery.

July 23, 2012

We felt so confident in Dr. Soissons care and so appreciated his straight forward answers! His staff was wonderful as well both in the clinic and while l was in the hospital.

July 18, 2012

Dr. Soisson is an amazing person, as well as an amazing Dr. He is so kind, compassionate, and knowledgeable. I'm SO glad he is the Dr. I get to go to.

July 17, 2012

My experience was great. The physician used simplified pictures and terms to make sure we understood exactly what was going on and what to expect. He was calm, which in return, calmed our worries.

July 17, 2012

all good

July 16, 2012

Excluding the worry and concern I had, it was one of the best experiences with a medical facility.

July 04, 2012

Excellent

July 02, 2012

He outlined my options very well and let me decide what I thought was best. I was grateful he offered non surgical options. This gave me real confidence in him and the staff.

June 26, 2012

Good experience - covered everything in detail including disease and meds.

June 19, 2012

all good

June 19, 2012

I already have made referrals for the Huntsman's Cancer Hospital

June 11, 2012

I really like Dr. Soisson, and the way he is w/ patients is amazing. He has always treated me w/ respect and compassionate concern. He is prompt, efficient, yet kind.

June 06, 2012

Considering what a crazy day it was in the clinic, my doctor was calm, relaxed and attentive. I never felt rushed or minimized.

May 19, 2012

i felt confident that all will be well

May 12, 2012

I was scared so I had the tendency to forget things that really were painful for me to remember

May 05, 2012

Grateful for use of "common terms." Advice as to future care appreciated.

April 26, 2012

Dr. Soisson is really good and cares about his patients--he is making sure that I an well and not taking any chances. I will have a PET scan this week--he is the greatest and I really like the care that I am receiving--

April 14, 2012

Did not get a chance to ask questions.

April 12, 2012

He is a VERY compassionate and caring doctor!! He made this horribly scary situation a lot easier on me!!

April 06, 2012

Have not had follow up care yet

March 22, 2012

I really like Dr. Sossian - he is very personable. He shows an interest in me and is very willing to discuss whatever problems I am having.

March 16, 2012

I admire and like Dr. Soisson,

March 09, 2012

I had asked my primary care provider about what to expect prior to my appointment. I had a list of questions for him that I never asked because they were answered before I could ask them. He was very informative and did not use medical terminology I could not understand. I was prepared to get a second opinion. After my appointment my husband and I felt very comfortable with the level of care I would receive from my doctor.

February 29, 2012

I was VERY impressed by the doctor that saw me. Kept eye contact with me the marjority of the time instead of reading the chart while talking to me. They already knew my history and all about what I was referred down there about before coming into my room to talk to me. I loved both the doctor that I saw!

February 22, 2012

Exam was quick and to the point

February 15, 2012

I liked Dr.Sission right away. (I know I'm spelling his name wrong) Sorry.

February 03, 2012

I felt much better after meeting the doctors and nurses at Huntsman.

February 01, 2012

Best oncologist I ever met!! Wonderful man. Even given my horrible circumstances.

February 01, 2012

I have complete confidence in Dr. Soisson and appreciate his attention to detail and sincere concern for my well being. Nancy is an incredibly kind, thoughtful and encouraging type of person. She is knowledgeable and is exactly the person I want to be on my medical team.

January 28, 2012

I am cancer-free and just going through required follow-up visits, so most of the above questions are N/A. There isn't much to say about my condition and just a brief internal exam.

My doctor is one of my favorite people! He is so talented at what he does and he seems to actually enjoy his work. He has a great bedside manner. His staff is all great too.
