Wonderful!! I was 38 years old when I found out I had cancer, rare blood disorder and an aneurysm with no insurance. One hospital was going to transfer me to cook county which I didn't really know about, I had just moved to Chicago. He took me on as a patient knowing all that and I received the upmost care from him and the staff at Rush University Hospital. I can't thank Dr. Showel, Dr. Lathchemsetty and Dr.Chen enough for all they did for me. Thank you!!
