    I couldn't have asked for a better surgeon to speak with regarding making me feel more calm and that everything is going to be ok ( in my mind). Funny to say, I am looking forward to my surgery and getting this cancer out of my body!! On a lighter note, I am going to miss Dr. Han when this cancer vanishes, because I never want to go thru this again and be seen in a cancer clinic again. The office staff is so wonderful too!!
