When it comes to dealing with cancer, you want someone you can trust. I trust Dr Seema. She is logical, thorough and walks you through all your options. She takes time to explain things in a way that makes sense. She does not claim to have all the answers and will collaborate with experts to make sure she is providing the best possible care. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone dealing with a cancer diagnosis.
