    I have been having sever and constant anxiety attacks, once needing 911 paramedic help since my lung biopsy and seems to be a mechanical event especially with breathing, or movements from a sitting or lying position to a standing position, severe at times. This needs to addressed before my Chemo/Radiation treatments start or it will be a negative effect towards any future treatment. This is a concern I could not seem to get across to the doctors but is a major debilitating concern to myself.

    Dr. John Holland is absolutely one of the best physicians I have had the pleasure of being treated by. He's compassionate and very understanding. Cancer is a very dramatic and life changing event and John makes you feel like he's on your side doing whatever he can to make things better and to help you get well. He also helps you manage what may or could happen during potential outcomes in a way that it makes things ok and that it is possible to get through them, even though they may not be exactly what you wanted. In other words you feel like Dr. Holland goes through the process with you and is not just directing you through the experience. Dr. Holland is one of the biggest reasons that I have had as successful outcome as I have had. Thank you John!

    I say that I would recommend Dr Holland but really I hope that I never have to. I was getting radiation for cancer and I would hope that my family and friends never have to even think about this treatment.
