Throughout my treatment for lymphoma over the 9 months or so, Dr. Allison Winter has been an excellent doctor. She is extremely knowledgeable, patient and caring. She took the necessary time to explain my condition, test results and treatment and showed genuine concern. From the beginning, I felt that I was in good hands at a very frightening and stressful time. Please continue to allow Dr. Winter to practice in this manner. Too often these days, medical treatment seems very rushed with the doctors being unwilling or unable to spend time with their patients. My experience with Dr. Winter was not like that.
