It's a frightening task to find out you have brain or any type of cancer and then find a doctor who understands the cancer, is experienced, is part of a team that is responsive and will take the time to help you understand what needs to be done. The word "cancer" hits you so hard it takes your breath away. Review your options but include Dr. Alekshun. He's no nonsense, talks to you not over you and takes the time to understand your concerns and then guides you through solutions. In my cancer he is my pilot.
