Dr Lin was very professional. Answered my questions and answered in a lingo I could understand. However, his staff, particularly the front desk needs to go shopping for personalities. The nurse was also very good

Some people just should not be doctors, especially oncologists. Dr. Halaas is is a text book informed doctor with little to no emotion. Maybe he has lost patience and compassion over the years but I doubt it. Not sure how he sleeps at night.
