Brief Answer: I dont have any direct reference Detailed Answer: Hi Would like to help you, but I don't know these oncologists personally. It's through other friends who told me about them. You can contact 0000 for appointments with cmc oncology. I think the whole team is excellent. You just need to meet someone. They are well organised and all patients will be under excellent care.
