Great listener. The other doctor was very sweet and took notes for me during the visit. It was a lot of information so I really appreciated having the notes to review.

I am convinced that Dr. Rugo is crucial to my extended survival of Stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. Without her persistence I don't think I would have been correctly diagnosed and treated. Admittedly my case is peculiar and my disease does not behave in a normal fashion so I really lucked out when my daughter found Dr. Rugo for me because I am STILL HERE.

Dr Rugo spent as much time as required to listen to me answer my questions calm my anxieties and advise me of my illness prognosis and choice of treatments. She is a caring and brilliant physician.

Dr. Rugo has been stellar in her medical care since early in our relationship - even prior to my first appointment when I was utterly terrified. She instilled a sense of hope that I needed to simply get through my first few days of diagnosis.

Dr. Rugo has a great way of connecting with patients. She listens and engages the patient in decision making. She had a warm demeanor and demonstrates great knowledge in treating breast cancer.

Dr Rugo personally followed up with my scan results by calling me at home and explaining the results. She is an amazing brilliant and caring physician.

I am always impressed with how Dr. Rugo considers my input. She is so brilliant and yet she incorporagtes what I say into my plan of care. She is an outstanding physician and I feel so blessed to have her as my care provider directing my plan of care.

Rugo is the best. she talks a bit fast sometimes and thinks like a provider which is understandable. she doesn't think like a patient though she is receptive to my concerns. sometimes she throws acronyms around like I'm supposed to know. recently I asked her a question related to how chemo acts in the body and she seemed shocked I didn't already know this. so she is sometimes in her own universe. and she is who she is.

Dr. Rugo is an amazing oncologist. She kept telling me that new new and finally accurate diagnosis was a game changer but actually I think she was the game changer. Her experience and persistence despite her huge caseload has put me on an entirely different treatment plan -- one that I have no doubt will extend my life. It does not get better than that.

I think I'm very fortunate indeed to have had the services of Dr. Rugo and Dr. [name redacted]. I do not believe I could've been better served by any other professionals.

Dr. Hope Rugo is a brilliant oncologist. With me she has been responsive compassionate and responsible. I always feel she provides the best care possible among the options available. I think an integrative treatment approach is the best one to pursue. I will pursue complementary treatments through programs offered at the Osher Center.

I had a few more questions but decided not to ask since Dr. Rugo was already so far behind in her schedule.

I have seen so many different NP'S and you only seen the MD once a year! I do not have a relationship with any Staff member and feel that I was not empowered by anyone to participate in playing a active role in my care!

as I mentioned I am very lucky to have her as my dr. cancer is hard enough to battle but she is a true patient advocate and caring dr. best dr ever.

I feel dr rugo is extremely knowledgeable and experienced so I do feel her assessment of my situation will be thoughtful and thorough.however I often am not quite sure where I stand re prognosis or treatment plan as it has yet to be determined despite the fact that the foundation one results were submitted to her weeks ago. it's very stressful for me to not know what lies ahead after radiation
