There was an assistant that first met w/me. He was so friendly. He then gave *Dr. Rocha the info both he & *Dr. Rocha caem in for consult for Whipple surgery. My son was w/me they answered my questions & his also. My son told my daughter he almost cried because they were so nice & caring. I believe I will be in great hands for the surgery.
