    Dr. Matar is terrific. She is very thorough in explaining what will happen during radiation. She was well researched on my case and demonstrated a true concern for my immediate past treatments and moving forward to radiation as soon as I was physically ready. She has a super bed-side manner and is very attentive to my comfort level throughout my care path. She is leading the charge for a new/innovative approach to radiation, which is specifically suitable for me. For that, I am very thankful.
