Academic Title: Acting Assistant Professor

    • James Stanwood, WA 06.21.17

      Dr. Wilkes has been my daughter's primary oncologist since shortly after her diagnosis, 7 months ago. She has a tremendous amount of knowledge and has always been extremely patient with us through out the whole process. She has guided through a difficult diagnosis and a long treatment path. All the information that she gave us was very clear and concise, and she has made herself available when we need her. Dr. Wilkes also shows a sense of empathy that i find to be rare in the medical field. I highly recommend anyone considering her care.
