Dr Ross has been treating my SO for more than 10 years for Lymphoma. He has keep her cancer in remission and she is over her life expectancy for this disease and still healthy. He is always on time with appointments and his staff is excellent. He takes time with his patients and explains everything thoroughly. He has a very pleasant personality and is always cheerful and friendly. You will not go wrong if you chose him to be your Oncologist.

I have been one of Dr. Ross's patients since October of 1994. He has seen me through to battles with breast cancer - the most recent was in 2007. He is thorough, explains things well, and does not let his patients fall through the cracks which can happen so often to people with multiple serious health issues. With regular followups, I always feel like we are on top of everything. I highly recommend him.
