September 2017
Dr. Rosales is great, but I´m still having difficulty understanding the nature of my cancer and the interpretation of my pathology report after surgery. I was disappointed that I had to supply the pathology report from my surgery (done outside of VA Mason) and that he didn´t have it. Lack of full communication between him and my surgeon.
August 2017
Dr. Rosales is FANTASTIC!!! I cannot recommend him highly enough!!!
August 2017
We feel very fortunate to have Dr. Rosales as my oncologist. He spends as much time with me as I need. He answers questions honestly which I would imagine is difficult in his line of practice but I don´t want any sugar coating from my doctor.

Dr Rosales showed real interest in my wellbeing and listened to my concerns. He offered a new medication for me to try to see if it would help my situation with instructions to call in 30 days. I wish Dr Rosales would have been my Oncologist from the very beginning!
