He didn't seem to care much. You are just another check and your feeling and emotional state about the life threatening issue means nothing at all. The answer to most questions about my situation was "I don't know"

I had a breast nodule removed for biopsy, and the scar is barely visible. Dr. Kanter was awesome!
