Very smart top expert in the field very active in knowledgeable about the latest trials. I feel safe putting my trust in him and this saves me having to keep up with the latest treatments. Instead I get on with enjoying life! He always explains the options when it is time for a treatment decision and then makes his recommendation - which I invariably follow. I am fortunate to have him looking after me.
