Dr. Ketchum is my dad's doctor. He is kind, caring, compassionate and empathetic doctor. He does not rush my dad through an appointment; he takes the time to explain current health, next steps, and future outlook. He is wonderful and I appreciate the care he is giving to my dad.

Dr Ketchum is personable, professional and encouraging. Even when things are bad, he puts them in perspective for you. His personnel are top notch and efficient and caring. I would recommend him to anyone who needs an oncologist. He is observant and sees things beyond the cancer. In other words, he's smart and doesn't miss a trick.
