Dr McMasters helped me feel comfortable and more calm about my cancer diagnosis than I had been in weeks. He sat with me and my family, took the time to go over my numbers/stats, and clearly explained his treatment plan. He made the experience a comfortable one during a scary time for me and I'm thankful for that.
