A diagnosis of breast cancer sets into motion a whirlwind of appointments, tests, surgeries and possibly chemotherapy and radiation treatment. A new study reviewed the timeline between surgery and initiating chemotherapy for different subtypes of breast cancer and found a survival advantage when chemotherapy was initiated within 30 days of surgery. Although treating within the 30-60 post-surgical window did not show a statistically significant survival advantage, there is a trend towards better outcomes. Exceeding 60 days post treatment had a negative impact on survival. The clinical impact of timing is most relevant for patients with stage II and III breast cancer, triple negative breast cancer and HER2-positive tumors.

Dr. Wahl's approach to discussion is very good. She looks at me, pays attention to what I said, remembers my challenges, and goes back over what she said without hesitation or annoyance if I ask for clarification.

Dr Wahl has my complete confidence in treating [...] and in using state-of-the-art medicines and chemo for my treatment, I am extremely grateful to have her - and her team of nurses and assistants - as my oncologist and care providers.

The provider is a specialist (oncology) so I would only make the recommendation if someone were looking for oncologist. I would make recommendation for the cancer clinic at Swedish-Issaquah.

This is my second round with breast cancer. While dealing with the news of the type of cancer I have, I knew I wanted to be back under Dr. Wahl's care. She is always forthcoming with information, yet is positive and friendly. She is a bright light in the world on oncology.

Completely lost confidence in T. Wahl after her ignoring CT results & even though it didn't change the final outcome it meant I went 18 mo. w/o treatment. Tried another clinic but since they offered the same treatment, I went back Dr. Wald because she is closer.
