    Dr. Raphael was recommended by another patient, and everything about the experience was positive (well, except all the surgical removal of so much cancerous tissue ... but even that was done well, with little pain) I was impressed with how well Dr. Raphael listened and explained everything, including just what to do/instructions to call if any problems developed overnight after each surgery -which they didn't I highly recommend Dr. Raphael.
