Wonderful, kind, caring physician. Diagnosed my husband w/NHL quickly and began chemotherapy. Excellent bedside manner, spends lots of time explaining options and answering questions. Sad to hear that she is leaving our local area (Yakima, WA). My husband and I are thankful for her thoughtful, compassionate, expert care.
