Board certified in Internal Medicine and Medical Oncology and Hematology
I believe that I have received the highest quality care from Dr. Svahn and Dr. Rahman, and the NPs - Michelle Frankland and Kristen Bowman. The chemo therapy RNs and the radiation therapists are outstanding. In addition to saving my life, everyone was always kind and compassionate to me. I will always be grateful to them all. I could not have received better care anywhere else! Breast Cancer Survivor
