Patient Testimonials

“Dr. Hoekstra and her staff helped me navigate throughout my breast cancer experience. Their kindness and thoughtfulness will be something I will never forget. I can’t thank them enough.”  (Sarah G)


“I am almost speechless, you are better to me than family.  I can’t imagine having care anywhere else.  It was nothing compared to my experience elsewhere 15 yrs. ago.  I can’t imagine having anyone doing a better job.  I’m just eternally grateful you’ve gotten me through it.  Everyone, Dr. Hoekstra, Lindajean, Elizabeth, was so wonderful – you are my band of angels.  Consistently, everyone I’ve dealt with at Mercy has been like being surrounded by a band of angels.” (Tammy T)


“The professionalism, warmth, and welcome I received from the Breast Care Center on all levels lifted my spirits, steadied my nerves, and brought me to the higher sense of the education of what it means to have a cancer diagnosis. The kindness, patience, and respect for the patient is evident in everything they do and I am so grateful to be able to be here through my diagnosis and recovery.”  (Sabrina N)
