I have been treated at NM for cancer for the last 5 years. The previous doctors I have dealt with have been competent. Some were very cordial. Today, with Dr. Pollock and his Fellow, I felt like I met doctors that saw me not only as a challenge or an appointment to fulfill, but as a fellow human being. They not only listened. They heard me. Thank you.

I felt uplifted after he took time to discuss reasons for my treatment. He showed me the scans from Friday and compared them to scans from 6 weeks ago. He explained what he looked for and educated me what to look for on the scan. I have tried to take an active role in my treatment. Knowledge is power and may help to minimize fear and stress.
