dr Liss explained all of my potential options for treatment moving forward. She also immediately acted to help maintain my recent and new pain associated with my lingering cancer. I am always impressed by how up to speed she is on all of the latest research and new treatments and options. I feel like I could not find a better or more proactive oncologist than Dr. Liss.

I had to wait quite a while to see the doctor. It would have been nice to have one of the receptionists let me know that they didn't forget about me, that the doctor was running late and that I would be seeing her as soon as possible.

I waited in the little room for at least 40 minutes, maybe a little more before Dr. Liss came in. One of the assistants popped their head in the door and told me she would be right in about 25 minutes after my appointment time.

Dr Liss is an excellent oncologist. My experiences through breast cancer the past 3-1/2 years with Dr. Liss has made it much less scary. Legacy has always been professional, caring and I am definitely glad they were on My Team.

Dr. Liss has been my primary doctor and she is a gem to work with and I rely on her for what I have experienced during that period of time. She is very concerned about my condition and I'm very appreciative to have her as my specialist in a disease that could be a lot worse than what it is. She is always in my prayers to remember her in asking God that she be blessed for the good she does in many long days of caring for all of us who are happy to have her as my/our primary doctor in our separate health challenges that we and she face together.

Dr. Liss has always been informative, pleasant, professional, & easy to communicate with. No complaints. Please note that I was late to this appointment which probably messed up their schedule. Usually I am seen within 15 mins. of arrival but not this time thanks to me. Not their fault.

Dr. Liss is very attentive and a pleasure to work with. She explained the results of my bone density test and why it is important to take advice on use of D3 and calcuim. She also was very personable and ordered additional tests as required. I feel like I have a very good partner in my healthcare in regards to breast cancer.

I feel that Dr Liss is not very compassionate, especially for an oncologist. I mentioned that I was very low and was there anything I could do to help that. She shook her head and said no. she didn't even give me any advice on what I might do in the way of my diet. I am very disappointed with her and will probably be going to the a different provider.

I appreciate the time Dr Liss spent with me to patiently explain the complexities of my disease as it relates to protection from Covid-19. Although I had a longer wait than usual, the Dr apologized and explained she was "On Call" that day.I appreciate how personal Dr Liss has always been. She cares about me and my quality of life, giving me honest guidance to keep me safe and well. I trust her.

provider finally, after many appointments, acknowledged that a medication I am on is not working and that the effects of it not working can be miserable; however, her attitude seemed to be one of "that's life" rather than one of trying to come find a solution for this

Dr. Liss is a fabulous physician. She is fully present during our visits. She listens closely and genuinely cares about my wellbeing. She is kind and partners with me on treatment decisions. Her office staff are efficient, which I appreciate; I wish they were friendlier.They don't seem to be very happy.

My regular doctor sent me to have the iron in my blood evaluated. It's a mild hereditary thing. It's not likely that I would send a friend to Dr Liss even though she's excellent.
