[...] Dr. Dong was recommended to me by another retired physician. This was the best advice I could have received. When in cancer treatment, you want the most supportive, helpful and knowledgeable person and I have that now with Dr. Dong. [...] I just don't think I could have been as successful going through my treatment if I had not had him as my physician. He was hones, open, listened to my concerns and discussed options with me throughout my treatment. I feel blessed to have him and I recommend him to anyone i talk to concerning this area.

I have expressed to Dr Dong that I am concerned mostly about my palliative care given that I have an incurable disease. My current treatment plan is adequate for now as we watch and wait for other possible treatments or even a cure. [...] I have confirmed with another hospital and Dr that watching and waiting is a viable option. [...]
