Dr.Chae did a great job in the course of transitioning to the role of being my cancer doctor.He took the initiative by doing a close review of a CAT scan he requested. He determined that a PET scan should be done; that scan revealed two areas of concern. His work was of great value to me. Glad we got linked up.
