I have been receiving care from Dr. Doerr for about 8 years now for tongue cancer (2x). He is a great surgeon (remarkable reconstruction for my first tongue resection/radical neck dissection!!) and I believe he will do the same for my 2nd cancer surgery/reconstruction. It took some time, but the 'doctor-patient fit' has become better as time has progressed. I believe he has become more comfortable with me as a patient who benefits from true patient-centered care: collaborative assessment of my symptoms (active listening to my concerns) and collaborative decision-making about treatment. I am not your 'average' patient. I am well educated (Ph.D., BCBA) scientist-practitioner with over 30 years of experience in research, patient care, and service program development and quality improvement [...]. Moreover, I am a downstate NYer and as such have no problem advocating for what I believe is the best fit for me as patient (of course with the doctor's expert knowledge). Dr. Doerr is a 'keeper' for me and I am glad for the unique 'doctor-patient' relationship that we have gotten to.
