Great visit

I came to vanderbilt from being in a clinic where calls were not returned, where they were crowded waiting rooms with long weights and a surgeon who seemed impatient and brusque. This is a very scary time because I've been given the diagnosis of kidney cancer and was not getting access to my health providers between visits. So I felt I had to figure this stuff on my own . After meeting with Dr. Beckermann who was in listing a urologist to consult with during my appointment, I felt that I was being listened to and cared for. I felt like I left a lot of weight off at that appointment. She is very warm and compassionate
