Dr Rosales has been an exceptional doctor to work with in my situation and I feel very fortunate to be under his care. He has been easy to talk to and has answered my questions thoroughly, respectfully and in terms I understood without being condescending. I worked for litigation attorneys for my entire professional career so this was something I appreciated.

This was a bad appointment in that I received news that was of great concern, but the way in which the news was delivered made the experience as good as it could have been, given the circumstances. Dr Rosales was calm and compassionate with me in what was probably a routine, but difficult, appointment. We talked about what the CT had showed and we looked at a comparison of the current scan when compared with the same view a year prior. It was helpful for me to see what we are dealing with. Dr Rosales laid out a plan and as I left I felt I was in good hands. I still feel that way.

I couldn't be more pleased with Dr Rosales. He is remarkably well informed in not only his oncology specialty, but how it may relate to other medical issues or medication. He arrives well updated on my lab results and other factors that make for a clear and efficient appointment, though never appearing rushed.
