What I Liked most was that all the members oi his staff listened to what I had to say and my choices and how I felt on radiation and other medications. It was not "Doctors Orders" But "Doctors Suggestions" to hisdecisions on how to treat the challenges that I am having. He was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain the procedures and gave me the choice on how I wanted to proceed. Should all Doctors be like him.
