My Cancer Doctor sent me to Dr. Lamb for something that showed up on my CT Scan. I was so impressed with Dr. Lamb. I was really nervous when I went to him, but he really made me feel at ease and explained everything to me. He is going to do a Bronoscope on me to see what is going on with my lung and lymph nodes. He is the best and I would recommend him to anyone. He is the tops and you are lucky to him at UPMC like I am to have him as my doctor now.
