Tracy from Dr Pohlmans office, unasked, took on the responsibility of scheduling my CT scans plus 2 doctor appointments (one each with both of my oncologists) on the same day I was getting chemo. Who does that? I thought it would be a stressful day but everything went exactly as scheduled. As usual, Dr Pohlman was already prepared to discuss how I was doing, and again as usual, he immediately gave me the good news "no cancer". I love that he doesn't make me wait to hear those beautiful words.

I was concerned about how Zoom would work in this type of communication. Dr Pohlman made it a very positive asset by focusing the camera on his face ONLY. That was all I could see on the screen.....his face. It encouraged me to be very precise in my end of the communication.
