My confidence in Dr. Ancel is great. I trust her and truly believe I would not be alive today if not for her. She keeps my spirits up

DR. Ancel is a very caring and compassionate Doctor. She ALWAYS takes time with me to explain the results of the tests and labs that were taken. If the results are not back or confirmed by the radiologist, she will call with the results before the day is over. She has been just the doctor I needed as I went through chemotherapy (She was very cautious that the medicine contained NONE of the preservatives that I am highly allergic to.) and now that I am on the other side of the lung cancer. She was also the one who got me immediate attention when the cancer spread to my brain. My whole family respects and appreciates all that Dr. Ancel has done and continues to do for me. She has become my/our friend.

Doctor was a little unsure of protocol regarding follow up test times for the trial drug I had take but she did follow up once she had time to review the protocols, I told her I was pretty sure scans were required every 3 months, no 6 months.
