Dr. Willis took great care of my mother. She was 80 when she had Breast cancer. He made her feel great & always was so kind & caring towards her. She loved Dr. Willis & had us take her picture with him. Thanks to Dr. Willis!

Dr Willis has a great bedside manner. He treats you like you're family. He doesn't get upset if you don't do all the things he recommends but he is genuinely concerned about you. You feel it at every visit. He takes time to make sure you understand what's going on and what he recommends you do. His office staff are the best. Everyone there cares about each individual and their care.

Dr. Willis is an angel. He's kind, personable, he doesn't chastising or ridicule decisions you make about your treatment even if they're not his suggesting protocol. He shows concern but doesn't bully. I always feel he's totally present when meeting with him. I never feel as if he's thinking about the next patient waiting.....(this is a rare quality). I would highly recommend him for both his specialties oncology & hematology, the Doc. knows his stuff & you'll love his personality.
