After finding a lump in my groin (I am a testicular cancer survivor & became alarmed when I found the lump) I was referred to Dr. Rockett by my primary care physician. An ultra sound was done, and he determined the lump was an infected lymph node that could be removed in his office. Once home, I bled out and had to go back to the office so he could repair the cut in my vein. I was diagnosed with a rare & aggressive soft tissue cancer. Dr. cut through the tumor, which half was left inside.
He's calm and funny. He explained everything to me and was very attentive. Most importantly, he cared for me during my recovery and all my follow-up visits- which is why I chose a community hospital even though a large teaching hospital was much closer.
