Dr. Maeda was wonderful. She educated me well on my diagnosis and answered all my questions, She was a good listener and patient in listening to me recite my history and symptoms. She did not make the visit feel rushed. I felt very satisfied when I left the clinic that I understood my condition and prognosis. She stated that I or my referring physician could contact her in the future with any questions, which was very reassuring.

The best!! Dr. Lauren Maeda is professional, brilliant & kind. Her explanations of lymphoma CLL were so clear; she had so much information, she answered most of my questions before I had a chance to ask. She gave many options for treatment. We talked about being part of a study at Stanford. Dr. Maeda showed much concern for my care & for my future. I have full confidence in Dr. Maeda & decisions, suggestions & all paths she chooses for my life with lymphoma. I am so very grateful for Dr. Maeda.
I feel very comfortable with the doctor and her staff.
Dr. Natta's thoroughness and expertise made our 4 hr. drive more than worthwhile. I've been under an oncologist's care for over a year and I have never felt as confident of my understanding of my cancer as I was when we left the conversation with her.
