Review for Dr. Lima

I received 9 weeks of radiation from the staff at Southeast Regional Prostate Cancer Treatment Center led by Dr. Kamisnski. I could not be more satisfied with each and every member of the staff. A very professional and caring group.

Constantly talking bad about other doctors and bragging about himself instead of discussing my problem.
