in Mableton, GA |
I did research on NW physicians & found Dr. Bethke's email address online. I sent him an email explaining my case and honestly did not expect a reply. Within 2 hours of sending this email, he replied to me personally, on a Sunday. Next day he had his nurse call me to schedule an appointment. I have never had this type of direct and responsive interaction with a doctor, ever. Dr. Bethke will always be my Oncologist. I've flown to Chicago for several appointments and he is always the greatest.

My experience with Dr. Bethke was exceptional. He is extremely skilled, professional, calm and kind.
