    Dr. Cornett is so knowledgeable about her field of Non-Malignant Hematology. She explains things well and is very organized in her thoughts (oral and in writing) about a course of action to help me with my blood issues.

    I can't say one negative thing I felt like it was what I call a (spirit/God) shot that I ended up with Doctor Cornett. I have had a few horrific experiences with doctors and have learned that I really need to be my own advocate. Dr. Cornett assured me that she wanted to hang with me and help walk me thru whatever is going on with me.
