SHC Patient, Mar 2015

I am very impressed with Dr. Frank Stockdale and so pleased to have him for my breast oncologist at Stanford. He is a gifted physician and teacher who is deeply respectful, compassionate, thorough and efficient. He has been instrumental in my healing, is a joy to interact with, and inspires me with his enthusiasm, dedication and commitment to both his research interests and patient care. In the last three years, Dr. Stockdale has helped bring me back to life. In fact, he is such a vital member of my overall health care team that I consider him to be the king in my health care hierarchy. Dr. Stockdale truly represents the very best of Stanford Health Care - always providing the highest level of expert care with compassion and caring. Thank you Dr. Stockdale for excellent care!
