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.

I was diagnosed with APL in January, and have since been on the fast track to a full recovery. The treatment I received from Dr. Hool and his staff has been exemplary, and I am forever indebted to them!

six years of relentless support. answers to endless questions from me... success beyond expectations.. satisfaction is an under play on such an important and personal situation when the stakes are this high... I can't rate Dr. Hool highly enough in this system... not nearly enough stars!!

I was diagnosed with late stage lung cancer 3 and 1/2 years ago. Due to Dr. Hool's dedication to his profession, I have received excellent care. I am still able to enjoy life.
