Dr. Chism takes the time to show me results, explain them to me and then discussed courses of action in plain terms. He is a very good doctor.

Dr. Chism is a highly educated person on Kidney cancer and I will admit the treatments and medicines - recommendations are a bit hard to follow in the conversations as he discussions potential solutions on how to attack the cancer that has spread in my body. Typically not 1 answer but a review of options and then he makes his recommendation. We listen and go with his guideance. I feel connected enough with Dr. Chism that if I come up with a question later I can always send it in and he DOES respond. Nice that he does that. Much appreciated.
