A wonderful Doctor and human being.
I was treated by Dr Lopez in 1997 and 1998 for Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Dr Lopez was so kind and treated me with the utmost respect and dignity. I love him to this day for saving my life. I have been cancer free for all of these years and am so grateful to Jesus Christ and Dr Lopez for my longevity. I just turned 70 years young and love my life. Thank you Dr Lopez for playing a part. May God bless you always.

Such a Relief
I had my first appointment with Dr Lopez in June 2020 to evaluate whether or not I would need chemotherapy. After a careful review of the data, we felt comfortable taking a pill for five years with no chemo. I have since only had a blood test and a telephone call re: continuing the treatment and just checking up with me to see that I am doing well. Dr. Lopez is the ONLY oncologist who comes to Los Alamos (M & T) and I am thrilled he is the one. He and his staff go out of their way to accommodate needs and questions. He is terrific, and I highly recommend him..
