In my opinion, Dr. Daniel Rupley is the best breast radiologist. I have been to other facilities over the years to have mammograms. When I was recommended to Dr. Rupley, I have followed him to each facility that he was affiliated with. Dr. Rupley has been professional, informative, and kept in touch...
