I feel I have a very good rapport with Dr. Flaum. She has been my oncologist since I was diagnosed with cancer in July 2016. I have made truly amazing progress since that time, and my quality of life has been very good. With Dr. Flaum and your team's help, I am confident in the future!

I have very high regard for Dr. Flaum for her expertise in her field and her kind and well-informed manner in caring for me. She is explicit about what is recommended by standards of care, willing to answer all of my questions, and patient with my choices whether or not to follow the standard of care in all respects, given the risks and benefits.
