    This was my first contact with Dr. Bose and he was very familiar with my medical history. He had several suggestions for treatment once we get results of some tests.

    I've worked with several cancer care universities including MSKCC and Penn Medicine. UCSF has been a very positive experience for us as we navigate our care plan. I've already mentioned the experience I've had on my online forums in USTOO and ZERO cancer organizations.
