She had all the records from my previous oncologist and was prepared for my visit.

Dr. Carr is simply the best of the best. In a lifetime of [healthcare encounters], she is the standout best among all of my many many physicians and surgeons, including being direct, decisive, and, I realize, more limiting than I would like about how much work and travel I should be doing (I would do more of both than is good for me,) but I well recognize that her firm directives, that i do try to follow, are the right thing.
