Her surgery skills are top-notch and I have complete confidence in her. She always reminds me that I’m a superhero because cancer treatments are no joke hard. I would recommend her to anyone dealing with breast cancer, or any cancer. "

  • "Very pleased with Dr. Hook. From first initial visit, lumpectomy, port placement and all other visits. Even though I’m an RN, she explains all in layman's terms. Great bedside manner. Highly recommend her to anyone needing oncology surgeon. "
  • "My experience with Dr. Hook was outstanding. My lumpectomy, lab results and future diagnostic testing plans were clearly explained. The surgery itself was exactly as she described and one week after removing the mass I can already tell there will be little to no scarring or change in the shape of my breast. Rest assured, Dr. Hook knows her stuff."
