I believe we set out in fall of 2016 regarding a diagnosis of a very aggressive disorder. We had 2 objectives after I had analyzed and your wife's diagnosis and prognosis. She wanted to attend your daughters wedding and see your grandchild born. We achieved both of those circumstances. She walked down the aisle for your daughter's wedding on her account to me. She fought for 9 months with advanced disease, aggressive disease. I am sorry for family's loss.

Dr Wan is treating my colon cancer. He is very personable. He always makes a point to come and see how I am doing during Chemo days and tries very hard to stay on time during clinic. He has a very calming presence. He is very knowledgable. He is patient and listens.

Saw Dr Wan at Rochelle office. This was very convenient. With several changes at Kish hospital. It's been nice to have Dr Wan be so personable, easy to talk to, and kind. He listens and really knows his stuff. I feel very confident and feel well regarding options for care.
