Dr. Paletz took very aggressive actions to determine that I had an aggressive form of cancer and that it had not spread. He and his staff worked diligently to quickly get me screened and fought with my insurance company on authorization for the diagnostic procedures. Dr. Paletz also referred me to UCLA for further treatment. Because of the early detection and Dr. Paletz' quick actions, I will have surgery as a curative measure. Thank you, Dr. Paletz.
