Dr. Cecilia Schmalbach (and her team) was outstanding in every way. She has expertise with my diagnosis that very few doctors have -- and she took the time to explain what I needed to know. She also took the time to collect slides from the biopsy and follow up with me in the future. She is top-notch and I am fortunate to connect with her. I traveled 2.5 hours just to see her and it was definitely worth it. [...]
