    The first person we saw, Dr. Holly Chitwood, explained the results of my recent scan in some detail and patiently answered our questions. We were the seen by Dr. Reema Patel who carefully laid out and explained my treatment options. I have worked with Dr. Patel and her team for almost two and a half years and have nothing but praise for them. Dr. Patel is a superb oncologist and an even better person!
