I wish I could give him 0 votes, for, my opinion. I don't think he handled his condition seriously. Therefore, my husband no longer with us.

Dr. Ryan after examining me and looking at a CT scan of my lungs which was read as possible LUNG CANCER recommended some blood tests and repeat the scan in 6 MONTHS even though the radiologist wanted it in 1 month. In less than one month I had a Non-smokers lung cancer as well as the entire right upper lobe of my lung removed. Had I accepted his advice the tumor would most likely have been too large to remove and I likely would be terminal. SEEK CARE ELSEWHERE I am a retired cancer surgeon!
