in Gulf Breeze, FL |
The team of Richard Royal MD, Tara Wray, PA, and his nurse Effie are awesome. I've had stage 3 metastatic malignant melanoma in 2010 requiring surgeries and now again have a totally new case of stage 3 metastatic melanoma, and I wouldn't go anywhere else. They are just as great now as they were...more
