Listens to what the patient has to say. Explains test results and medical procedures clearly and concisely. Talks TO the patient not AT the patient. Friendly, caring, great sense of humor. I feel blessed to have him as my oncologist. Great doctor! Would recommend him without reservations. He's the best!
