If one has a progressive disease that gets worse with time. It is of little use to have a physician who has to have you wait a month before you can start your treatment

The DR was willing to come to the hospital if we were not able to make the appointment - didn't need to but the staff facilitated our desire to meet. Cancer is new to us and we had a lot of questions - the DR answered all of them to our satisfaction, showed patience and compassion for the situation.

We were impressed with how much study the doctor had done prior to our visit. There were many files to review and he had done his homework; showed us which ones he used to help make a decision how to treat the lymphoma and was very good at explaining the medical terms and process. We have every confidence in his diagnosis and will follow his guidance to treat the illness.
