She’s wonderfully communicative to me, treats me as a patient and as a person. And I am always looking forward to seeing her and getting the best help I can for my needs. I couldn’t ask for a better oncologist. Honestly I don’t know what I would do without her. She’s extraordinairy. I’m very blessed to have her as my oncologist. I’d be so very devastated and disappointing if she wasn’t there for me and the other patients.
