Huntington Beach, CA |
If you want to wait an hour every time you go in - if you want to be stuffed into the most crowded, unpleasant room for hours at a time for chemotherapy - if you want the incompetent nurse to stab you numerous times before she can find a vein every time you go in - then this is the place for you.
in Playa Del Rey, CA |
I have been a patient for 26 years. Dr. T recommended treatments that were new for that time. Here I am...26 years later. He is the best!!!
in Cerritos, CA |
Dr. T is Gods gift to the world for giving him the wisdom and the excellent skils in treating cancer patients. Three members of our family are still alive and enjoying life because of him. I highly recommend him to all the people in this world. I admire and respect him from the tip of his hair to the tip of his toes.Dr. T. God bless you always. The Navarro family of Beach St. at Cerritos California.
