I was very impressed with Dr Dana Cardin; I was diagnosed with a more rare kind of cancer,and the advice that one dr gave me differed from the advice of my longtime oncologist @ Sarah Cannon Cancer Center,and I wanted to get a 3rd opinion,and Dr Cardin was extremely helpful,& agreed with my oncologist,Dr Yardley.
