Dr. Sharfman just starting treating my father for late stage cancer. In our meetings with him, he was not only incredibly informative and knowledgeable, but he was also very kind. He really takes the time to explain options and is very clear with his recommendations. We don't know what the future may hold, but we feel better having Dr. Sharfman leading the charge.
