Salem, VA |
Dr. Heath was substituting for my father in law's radiation oncologist. He was very insightful, thoughtful, informative and caring. Considerable time was spent by him with my father in law addressing his medical needs. He was very concerned about my father in law's welfare.

I found him very rude, condescending, arrogant. He didn't examine me and said I had a 60% chance of surviving. That was 2 years ago after UVA cured my cancer. No bedside manner or no way to talk to patients,especially,cancer patients.
