Sarah Sammons: This is my favorite review ever because it’s honest

Mark Lewis shared an X/Twitter post by Sarah Sammons, an oncologist at the Dana-Farber Breast Oncology Center and an Assistant Prof. at the Harvard Medical School, adding:

“On this note, here’s a remarkable conversation recorded between one of my fellow Mayo Clinic Hematology-Oncology Fellowship alumni Brian Burnette and a patient of his as they clear the air — with respect but candor — around a poorly worded encounter.

We are more than our reviews.”

Quoting Sarah Sammons’ post:

“This is my favorite review ever because it’s honest. Our interactions with patients are complex. We diagnose, comfort, recommend, heal, laugh, cry with patients every day.

The 5 star review has got to go. My value as an oncologist is different than a grade on the same scale.”
