Patient Story: Susie Hunter

Susie Hunter describes herself as a small-town girl who likes knowing the names of the people behind the counter at stores. Even better is when they know hers.

When she needed treatment for breast cancer, she and her primary care physician felt confident in Surgical Oncologist Kari Rosenkranz, MD, at Dartmouth-Hitchcock, and the physicians at SVMC’s Cancer Center.

The experience with her cancer treatment team, including physicians Matthew Vernon, MD, and now Charlene Ives, MD; the nurses; and lab techs, exceeded her expectations.

“What made me a real convert was the amazingly personal relationships,” Susan said. “I felt all the way along that I was part of the decision-making process.”
