Dr Sosman was my second opinion doctor. He presented me with five different treatment plans that would help me with my RCC. He explained each one and how they would affect me, and which one he thought was best based on who I am and where I was at physically. I knew I found the right doctor. He is patient, has a sense of humor, but more importantly, he explains everything.
