Doctor Hool was recommended by my primary care physician, and if I am ever in a position to recommend a Hematologist, Doctor Hool will be the first doctor I recommend. Doctor Hool has been my doctor for 2.5 years with nothing but positive and good experiences. He explains things in simple terms, always follows up with me and shares information on upcoming new treatments that may be available to me. My wife and I are both very happy with Doctor Hool and the entire staff at Cancer Care Assoc.
