    I was very disappointed. He did not give me the chance to ask my questions, he cut me off, made me feel inferior and basically "dismissed" me. I felt very mistreated, upset and frustrated. My respect for Drs in the U.S has diminished drastically after this visit.
    Thank you for your feedback. At Virginia Cancer Specialists, we want to provide exceptional care to every patient, and we take complaints very seriously. Individuals with issues or concerns are advised to please contact our Executive Director at (703) 280-5390 so we can work to resolve your concerns.

    He is very nice, he takes his time with you, let's you know everything about your health and his plans to how he is going to help you. There are few times where we just walked in and he was kind enough to see us. I am so glad he is taking care of my dad.
