I have recommended Dr. Magrinat to others and cannot imagine being treated for my cancer by anyone else. He is truly the best! Example, he takes notes while he talks to you and then gives "you" those notes so you can pay 100% attention to what he says during your visit. This is truly an asset and he is the BEST!
