My Superhero MD!!!
Dr Scott Cross is the ultimate best!!! He has been my oncologist/hematologist since 2016!!! Without him I’m not sure I would have made it through my cancer diagnosis, treatment, and continued monitoring. He takes his time to explain things in ways you can actually understand. He takes in consideration your feelings and your wants/needs and gives his advice. He is very understanding and personable. I wouldn’t EVER trade him for another!!!

Competent and caring
Dr. Cross has always been very direct and open is discussing my medical condition. He is kind and obviously cares about my emotional and mental well-being as well as the management of my CLL cancer. He conveys a reassuring competence regarding his knowledge and experience as he explains the results of my biannual blood analysis. Kathleen Sharp, his PA, is also a kind and knowledgeable medical professional who carefully explains my ongoing condition.

Dr Cross called to see how I am doing. He wanted to assure me that although I am in remission I should be aware of any symptoms that might pop up. And if I needed anything from him to please call him. He is always attentive to my concerns and available to answer any questions I might have.
