Dr. Favret is very experienced, professional and courteous. She took her time and explained to me the treatment plan in detail in a way that reassured me and I felt that I was in good hands. Now it is almost one year into it and I am blessed and thankful. The staff are also great and Jayne the nurse navigator has been awesome!!

Caring physician who had clearly taken the time to do a thorough review of my records. She seemed very knowledgeable and communicated very clearly. I do not need an oncologist at this time, but she will be at the top of my list if I do.
