Dr. Long is very caring and is always willing to go over your CT pictures with you personally. He is one of the few doctors willing to call and provide information. So dedicated. Been trying to get him to take a vacation but he is too dedicated to his patients. His staff call him Prince Charming which is spot on.

Dr. Long is the best Doctor, as well as the best Oncologist I've ever met. He always listens to any of my concerns & answers any questions, no matter how detailed, & never with his hand on the door or looking at his watch as many doctors do. He makes me feel respected, a part of the team in my own decision making. I can't say enough good things on how he treats patients.He never gives up, even if your case is complicated or unique. He saved my life & is still helping me with new issues.10 stars.
