Patient Review For Kim Kubick
While I have always greatly appreciated Kim’s commitment to the physical and mental health of all of her patients, the biggest impact she has made for me is, undoubtedly, saving my life. Over the years she has always been supportive of me reaching my health goals, understanding my frustrations with the physical and mental strains of my job, which have worsened with the pandemic, and has always been able to relate to me on a human level, not just practitioner to the patient. Most recently, her gut instinct and willingness to advocate for her patients led me from an unremarkable mammogram to an MRI, which found my breast cancer at an early stage. Located against my chest wall and difficult to find with ultrasound, this impalpable mass would have continued to grow, likely leading to a single or double mastectomy and an unimaginable disruption to my life. Instead, I am currently recovering from a lumpectomy and lymph node dissection, waiting on tests to determine if chemotherapy is necessary, followed by radiation. If all goes well, I should be able to return to my work and my furry patients in a few months. Because of my case, Kim plans to be an even stronger advocate for her patients in regard to their mammogram scores on the Tyrer-Cuzick model. Something I also feel is remarkable, is that when my diagnosis came through Kim was out of the country and tried to call me herself anyway. When she couldn’t reach me she made sure another provider would see me in person right away to tell me the news and give recommendations for a surgical oncologist, further ensuring there was no delay in my treatment. All four of my oncologists and other providers on my cancer team continue to sing her praises. Nearly every appointment I am told how impressed they are, and how lucky I am, that Kim pushed for that MRI. I will be forever grateful to her, whatever the outcome of my diagnosis and treatment because I know that without her, it likely would have been much worse and treatment would be so much more difficult.
