      Dr. Jen Wilkes has been a wonderful oncologist--walking us through our son's new cancer diagnosis and ensuing battle. Her empathy for her patients, compassion, and expertise in her subject matter make her a great ally for parents. She is tireless and passionate in her work and shows great care for the children she treats. We are always happy to meet with her and so glad to have her on our team!

      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.
