Patient Comments (1)
in Jersey City, NJ |
Al saved my life. Came in with Stage 4 plus rectal cancer. He diagnosed immediately, put me on the correct chemo, radiation and dosage, and adjusted as I improved. I chose Sloan for surgery, he prescribed additional chemo... correctly... for the interim. He's incredibly knowledgeable. His treatments are precise and to the point. If you are looking for a touchy-feely doctor, Al is not your man. If you are looking to survive, there is none better in the country. Alan B. Shalleck Ph.D.
