Unexpectedly, I was transferred from my oncologist for 9 yrs., Dr. Teng, with her warmth, friendliness, and competence, Dr. McLaughlen made what could have been a traumatic experience, a pleasant one.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

I can't say enough good things about Dr. MacLaughlan and her staff. They do excellent care-giving; but I also know, for a fact, that they care about me as a human being and not just a patient.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

Dr. MacLaughlin was very thorough and kind. She explained everything in detail using diagrams, asking questions of me and answering my questions.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

I am sure that she is a very competent surgeon. However, I got the impression that she thought I was ridiculous for wanting a prophylactic oophorectomy, which was recommended by my oncologist. She was polite but it was clear she did not want my case. I felt as though because my ovaries were not cancerous, she did not want to waste her time or talents on me.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

Dr. Maclaughlan is an excellent GYN - oncologist!

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

I wish I lived closer to this area. Dr. MacLaughlan would definitely be my regular dr.

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

Dr. MacLaughlan is VERY good.

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

Although my appointment was a 3 mon. check up/basic - felt a bit rushed. Previous appts felt more normal pace.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

My surgeon was very clear in her explanations to me....she spoke in layman's terms, accompanied by drawings she did.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Dr. Macglauglan-David is an amazing doctor, and I am blessed to have been treated by her. She is sensitive to peoples feelings, she instills confidence in those going through life threatening situations, and she is a very kind hearted individual.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

All my experiences of Stanford are wonderful! I've never been at more wonderful health care facility!

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

For my last visit, I met the provider for the first time. Conservatively speaking, she spent no more than 4.5-5 minutes with me. I left having no idea what she was like as a provider, other than to note she spoke little and seemed disinclined to get to know me. If there were any other available female doctor, I'd switch today. Sadly, Stanford doesn't seem to have replaced the female doctors who left last year.

SHC Patient, Feb 2015

Such a wonderful person. My first doctor ever that I'm not scared to ask questions about my condition. A doctor who's willing to listen.

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

Dear Dr. MacLanghlan, thank you for all your kind, considerate patient care. Your compassion has made an unpleasant experience bearable.

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

Dr. MacLaughlan is THE BEST! Skilled so wonderfully - removed all my CANCER so I am cancer free! She gave me my life back to I've so grateful to her!

SHC Patient, Oct 2014

This dr. saved me from something prescribed by another dr. that I should NOT have.

SHC Patient, Jul 2014

I can not find anything I was not happy with, for both dr. and Co. dr. were both great.

SHC Patient, Apr 2014

Dr. Shannon is an excellent doctor, smart & kind.

SHC Patient, Apr 2014
