I've been under Dr Lukas' care for 2 years, after being told by another neuro oncologist that I only had 3 months to live. Although the same diagnosis, Dr. Lukas presented my plan of care from a more positive and enthusiastic perspective and thanks to that I pursued treatment and have had two more years to live.
