our radiology dr. was so good. even took time to call back about email questions when he was not at the office. Can't think of name at this minuet. He is no longer there. The team response is very comforting when dealing with your health. We knew it was not just the opinion of one dr. but all did their best to give the best treatment.UofU Patient January 07, 2016
I had no idea on what to ask, I had no experience with cancer before. I am the type of person who don't like surprises. Yet as one health problem diminished another health problem surfaced from the treatment. Unbeknown to me that there was a treatment to diminish the pain or problem suffering for days until my next visit. I am talking about the burns I received after the radiation treatments were finished. They said every patient was different but other cancer patients I have talked to have had similar experiences and I think the Dr. the nurses could of given me a heads up.UofU Patient December 03, 2015
I'm sure Dr. Hitchcock is an excellent doctor, or she would not be at Huntsman. However, Blaine has a serious hearing loss. With his hearing aids, and our efforts, we can usually make ourselves understood. However, he had a very hard time understanding Dr. Hitchcock because of her accent. I don't know if that will affect his confidence in her. She made every effort to communicate with him, but he did not understand a lot of what she said. She also was willing to have her resident restate information for him--that helped.UofU Patient July 31, 2015
Her accent a bit hard to understandUofU Patient July 20, 2015

Alrhough a bit tough to understand her Dr. Hitcock is so helpful in her explanations and so encouraging. she really seems to know what she is doing and instills confindence in her patients that they are on the road to recovery.UofU Patient July 18, 2014
Nothing short of perfection, but perfection done out of a want to help everyone entering the Huntsman Facility from a visitor to someone with the most special of needs (I am certain you get my point)!UofU Patient July 13, 2014
As always, Dr. Hitchcock and her team treat me Professionally, but with personal interest in my care. These and the entire Huntsman staff are world class.UofU Patient July 13, 2014
Dr. Hitchcock could not be any better.UofU Patient May 31, 2014
We have already shared with everyone who asks just how caring everyone at The Huntsman is and what great care we are receiving. We are grateful that we were able to get in.UofU Patient April 06, 2014
I greatly appreciate the compassion & reassurance the staff showed for my situation. Out of state travel is difficult & the doctor was so amiable with me receiving treatment closer to home.UofU Patient December 12, 2013
All good.UofU Patient May 03, 2013
Dr. Hitchcock was excellent. The resident that was working with her the day of our visit needs to pay attention to Dr Hitchcock. He did not want to hear our questions, and infact told us to not ask any questions and just listen to what he had to say. Poor patient interaction with the resident.UofU Patient April 18, 2013
very amazing experienceUofU Patient March 08, 2013
