in Leland, NC |
The best of the very best oncologists; kind, brilliant, caring. I've been his patient for 25 years ... still alive and thriving because of his interventions! He sees each patient as the whole person he or she is, and connects easily with each on a personal level. His memory is legendary. A great role model for young physicians.
