I'd never wish anyone to have to see him but if you have to fight for your life be glad he's on your side. He made the hole cancer treatment go very smooth and was nice to have someone be a straight shooter about everything and his team was very helpful with everything that I was going through. I'm glad he was my DR through this life event.
