Dr. Carol Rapson is a one of a kind doctor. She has more knowledge about the different forms of cancer then any other oncologist. When she meets with you she sits down and makes you believe that you are the most important person in the world to her. I have complete trust in whatever decision she makes. My trust has to be earned and believe me it isn't easy but she earned it after my first long appointment with her. She answered ALL of my questions and there were lots of them. She's a Saint and life saver in my eyes.
