Dr Dinner made the time required to thoroughly understand my condition and make recommendations for my AML treatment. I couldn't have asked for more. Because of the severity of my diagnosis she wouldn't let me leave my visit without first taking a blood test in order to verify that I was healthy enough to do so. She was ready to admit me to the hospital if my blood tests indicated that treatment was required immediately.
