      I was like this with breast cancer. I was scheduled for chemo. Dr. Puhalla found that I had a rare blood disorder, and was able to switch my chemo treatments. If she would've found my rare blood disorder I would've certainly died with the chemo that I was originally supposed to have she saved my life I will be forever grateful. Best doctor you can ever ask for.
