While I have seen many doctors in my lifetime with various personalities, he is by far head and shoulders over the others! He is extremely knowledgeable, caring and helps his patients navigate the complex road to recovery. He expertly treats the physical challenges of cancer as well as the mental aspects. I would recommend him to anyone with a blood disorder/lymphoma.
