Dr Djohan has been treating me since my breast cancer diagnosis in 2020 and 1st of many surgeries In 2021. I've never felt so cared for and listened to by a physician. In my recent post surgery follow up appt he said something I have never heard from a DR. That he "could've done better" when looking over my reconstruction. This act of caring for not only me as a patient but how he cares about patient as a "whole" confirmed that I was in great hands. I'm sure he's heard the same questions and concerns over and over but he listens and answers mine with respect and empathy as if it were the 1st time.
