I have been blessed to have Dr. Smitha Mennon as my Oncologist for 8 years. She guided me through chemotherapy after an upper lobectomy and after a wedge resection. She speaks clearly about the issues at hand and also has a special ability to relate and demonstrate compassion. And here I am, 8 years after my initial diagnosis. Proof positive of the care exceptional care provided by Froedtert/MCW and the care team led by Dr. Mennon.

Dr. Menon has cared for me for the past two years since I was first diagnosed with Stage 4 non small cell lung cancer. I am a retired nurse ... and very anxious as this is my third separate cancer diagnosed. She listens to my concerns, never hurries me out of the office, is very calm when talking with me and my spouse, is very knowledgeable of the current management of my disease, answers my what if this or that questions, tells me what to expect from my treatment and remains positive of my prognosis in view of the fact that I am two years out and doing well on my current meds. I would recommend her to anyone I knew who needed a thoracic oncologist. Also I can always reach her or her staff during the day during the week and have never needed to contact her or the people who respond to patient concerns on weekends or evenings. As a nurse I like to communicate directly with her so try to do that communication when I know she is available as I know she knows me best.

Dr. Menon went out of the way to answer my questions and, in response to at least one of them, promptly got an opinion from a second radiologist. She called me later in the day with that information.

Dr. Menon has been my Oncologist since 2013. She has always been professional, compassionate and, in my treatments and outcomes, very successful. Dr. Menon is definately a shining star in the firmament of Froedtert Healthcare.

First time visit for a previously diagnosed lung cancer. My primary care doctor is not in the Froedtert system. I sought the care at Froedtert because of its reputation for lung cancer care.
