Dr. Connelly's compassion for her patients shines through in every interaction. Her graceful and empathetic approach truly reflects her deep understanding of what patients are experiencing. A notable example is her habit of sharing positive news the moment she enters the room. I can't express how many times her enthusiastic delivery of good news has provided an immense sense of relief, setting a positive tone for each appointment. She is genuinely exceptional and truly one-of-a-kind. Froedtert is lucky to have her.
Being scheduled to see Dr. Connelly & her staff members made my afternoon feel (a lot) better. The information from my MRIs taken that day (and all staff members In the MRI room & Hope room) really made me feel a lot better about myself.
Dr. Connelly is brilliant, poised, AND navigates interactions with warmth. There is NO better way than this.
Going to a neuro-oncologist is mentally stressful, but Dr. Connelly put me at ease by making great eye contact to ask her questions and to answer mine. She was thorough, kind, gentle, professional, and caring. I was impressed and relieved that she would be overseeing my treatment plan and care.
