Patient Comments (2)

Outstanding doctor! In 2012, he and his nurse, Candy saw me through chemo and radiation. Because of their diligence and dedication, today, I am able to enjoy my family, especially my grandson, whom I thought I would not live to see, and now, joyfully await the arrival of another grandson!
