I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Ruth Lamar. My husband and I found out we were pregnant on 2/20, on 2/23 he was diagnosed with Stage III Hodgkin's Lymphoma. We were completely blind sided to say the least... She has been so amazing with this terrifying process. Thank you so much to Dr. Lamar and her staff.
