I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Conkling. He is thorough and informative. He was interested in my thoughts about my condition, which turned out to be a rare form of leukemia. After identifying this, he suggested that I get a second opinion from a major medical center, however, I was so impressed with his care that I declined that option. When I indicated that I was interested in doing alternative therapies, he was supportive of my decision. He is genuinely caring.
