Dr Magrinat was amazing throughout my cancer journey. Everyone I encountered at the Cancer Center was kind and compassionate. You have an amazing staff who genuinely cares

Dr Magrinat is the best doctor I have ever received care from. He listens very carefully. Writes down your concerns or questions, and thoroughly explains his response; as well as writing that down too. You have the printed material from your visit when you leave as well as these notes he has made- so crucial since it's hard to remember everything. Especially when you are quite anxious. He's amazing!

He has always been attentive to my every concern and explained both my condition and treatment plan thoroughly in language I could easily understand.
