Meet with Dr. Sokol to discuss treating Basal-and Squamous-Cell Carcinoma with Electron Beam Spray Therapy instead of traditional surgery done by a dermatologist. Dr. Sokol's indicated that the Electron Beam Spray Therapy is well documented, safer, cosmetically natural and less stressful. I was impressed with Dr. Sokol's evaluation, he's very personable and caring.
