Visiting an oncologist for the first time was a daunting experience. Dr. McBath was such a source of confidence and support. He asked specific questions as he did my exam, explaining what he was looking for as he moved along. I felt I was in the hands of a competent, highly experienced professional who was also empathetic and friendly, a very welcome combination in a very unwelcome situation.
