I've never been to a medical appointment where every single person - from reception to the doctor - are so upbeat, willing to have a conversation, able to stop and explain why certain tests are being run as well as the outcomes.

Dr. Brook took time to cover my issue in detail. Very pleasant and obviously very knowledgeable.

Review for Dr. Goldschmidt

We discussed my need for followup treatment on my lymphoma after reviewing the current scan. We agreed to delay a decision until after stressful activities were completed and followup at that time.
