Testimonial: Mucoepidermoid Carcinoma of the Right Palate

“Upon our first meeting together at your clinic, I immediately felt a connection of trust and confidence.” —PF

January 9th, 2024

Dear Dr. St. John, I have come to the deeper understanding that the definition of Care has many different meanings. Thank God I found you at UCLA. You redefined the term “Care” in the most meaningful way. In being previously diagnosed with Cancer at another health care provider, I was terrified.

The previous level of communications and “Care” were extremely different from what I was blessed in receiving from you and your team. You prioritized my well-being both physically and emotionally. You genuinely listened to my concerns and fears. Your guidance and clear and concise communications were the basis for my family and I developing a sense of hope and future.

Upon our first meeting together at your clinic, I immediately felt a connection of trust and confidence. Your accommodation for follow on Video Conference calls was no less personable than sitting directly in front of you. Your support to make time even when you schedule was busy, made all the difference in calming my fears.

Your coordination with cross platform medical teams at UCLA was critical in the very best outcome for my medical condition. It was evident immediately with each contact at UCLA, that the respect from your peers and teams, that I was in the very best possible hands.

As I sit here and try to compose the most meaningful letter of my life, I can only feel truly blessed by an Angel, one who applies comprehensive Medical expertise in the most significant and consequential time of need for Care in my life.

Forever Grateful, 
PF and Family
