    This was my first time seeing Dr. Mitri (my 4th oncologist at OHSU) and we had a very favorable first impression. It's just that, since it was the first time, it's too early to recommend. He knew my history, had a nice demeanor, let me know what I needed to know, and I even learned a couple new things, which is amazing after 14 years of mbc. I hope we have a long & strong relationship.
