Dr. Tevar and Ms. Lander, my nurse coordinator, were outstanding . They went above and beyond what I expected. They advocated in my behalf and the doctors' bedside manner and professionalism were exemplary. By far, the best medical staff I have had interacted with. Very caring, understanding, and knowledagble. I can't say enough good things about these individuals except Thank You. From myself, my son, and my family.
