    I have referred patients to them

    "I have been working with Dr de Silva Minor for over 12 years. She is an excellent clinical oncologist whose clinical acumen is balanced by her care for our patients. She takes a comprehensive and holistic approach to patient care. All patients comment how much they appreciate the time and consideration that she gives in spending time with her. From a clinical point of view Dr de Silva Minor is completely up to date with the latest research and new ideas regarding cancer management. Her academic background means she can assess what might be a theoretical advantage in a patient's care against the impact on quality of life for example. This means that she always puts the patient's interests first. With out a doubt, for my patients with breast cancer, I cannot refer to a better informed and more caring oncologist."
