Dr. Hancock is the best

Dr. Hancock has been taking care of my husband for the last four years, overseeing numerous oncology issues. He is personable, thorough and astute. He even pointed out symptoms of a neurological disease that my husband's other doctors all missed. Because of this, I believe that we caught the last hurtle early and we are very thankful for Dr. Hancock's ongoing oversight.
