Dr. S is caring for my grandmother who has breast cancer, she has been very gentle but clear in her approach in explaining my grandmothers condition. She is a very proactive Dr. Who Gets things done. My grandmother has switched between 3 oncologist and Dr. S is by far the best care she has received. My grandmother, my family, and I are very pleased with her as our medical care choice.
