Ratings for Dr. Whitfield B. Growdon
I love Whit and his team.From the shock of learning I had ovarian cancer to my post op three month bloods I have been deeply cared for. The support staff in the front are cheery, kind, patient and professional. The nursing staff (that's you Katie) is easy to talk to and make you feel informed at every treatment appointment. I was surprised to see that someone found the office to be disorganized. It's a cancer center, for God's sake: not a car wash. I always expect to wait because I know the team won't rush me and want to make certain I understand what's going on with my treatment. As for begging for an appointment: huh? Scheduling surgery is like choreography. Do you know how hard it is to schedule major surgery? Obviously, you don't. No whining.
This is one experienced and talented surgeon. He performed excellent surgery on me for endometrial cancer. I trusted him 100%. His Mass General office was disorganized and I basically had to beg and plead for a surgery date.. and his use of MD residents is to be expected in the environment that he is expected to perform in .."the Harvard training environment". Test results were very iffy. Not his fault but be very proactive if you are a cancer patient with Mass General...communication between departments is terrible. Bottom line trust him 100% for surgery but remember he is part of the system ( cancer big bucks and disorganization ) when you go for follow-up..trust your instincts. He is an honest guy..but a Harvard MD most likely working for Pharma companies in research. A great surgeon none the less.
Dr.Growdon is the best in his field . I had surgery just last week Dr. Growdon made me feel so at ease that together whatever he found if anything he would take care of. He spoke to me before surgery to see if I any questions for him just seeing him before surgery made me feel that I couldn't be in any better hands than his. Thank God surgeons like him still exist in this world and his compassion shows through.
There can never be another Whitfield Growdon. His surgical prowess, his total commitment to his patients, his compassion, his ability to deliver not so good news and yet one is able to leave his office with a hopeful heart. He is a magician who weaves a magic spell and somehow you are renewed despite dire circumstances. I cannot say enough about this great, great man. Although he is young, he is skilled and wise beyond his years. Having been his patient for the past two years, I would have it no other way and travel from New Jersey to Boston to continue in his care.
I have been a patient of Doctor Whitfield Growdon since i was 23 years of age... i am now 28 and i truly believe he is an angel in doctors clothing! He is the most wonderful doctor i could have ever asked for! He is very careful, caring, and a true joy to talk to even if its about something not so joyful. He makes you feel very calm and at ease and his nurses are amazing as well. There has been only one time in 5 years that he was running late; and it was only because he was called into an emergency surgery. Dr. Growdon is the best of the best and i am a very lucky young lady to have a doctor as wonderful as him!
Dr. Growdon came to my help when I desperately needed a Doctor. He has qualities I have yet to see in others. Always upbeat, positive and takes the time to explain everything. I trust him with my life. Dr Growdon saved my life and he genuinely cares about his patients. Constantly brag that I have the best Dr in thr world.
Cannot possibly imagine a kinder, attentive and more genuine doctor. He has the best bedside manner you could ever hope to have and you can tell that this must be his calling in life. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have some one like Dr. Growdon in my life - I honestly cannot say enough wonderful things about him!!!
Excellent communicator; energy level combined with gravitas allowed for complete trust. As a patient, Dr. growdon makes you feel as if you are his priority; never rushed, always takes the time to make sure you have all of your questions answered.
