    Dr. Maurer was very kind & took time to explain my upcoming surgery. I left my appointment feeling much better than when I arrived. There was a medical student (Brittany) & nurse (?) who were also incredibly helpful & kind.

    I was very stressed out and nervous about my whole visit to Huntsman and pending tests. Dr. Maurer immediately put me at ease, carefully explained everything, answered all my questions, and helped me make a decision about my preventative options with which I feel very comfortable now.

    Dr Maurer is upbeat, engaging, knowledgeable, encourages patient questions and provides a health plan at the end of each visit so the patient can adjust or continue their involvement in their recovery. She is empathetic to patient concerns and she puts you at ease even in dire situations. I am so glad to be a patient in her onco practice.
