Best lung cancer oncologist in Los Angeles

Dr. Natale has kept me alive for 8 years. The scope of his knowledge and experience is a marvel. He helped pioneer the miracle drug Iressa and spends some of his practice researching the latest developments. Appointments with him are efficient, caring and productive. When something unpredictable occurrs he has treatment option available immediately. Dr. Natale's remarkable skill as a physician is equally matched with his very generous heart.
