    Dr. Yalniz was very thorough. Took the time to draw pictures and explain my husband's disease and the risk associated with his upcoming bone marrow transplant. Loved the way he took time and drew everything out so we could understand what lies ahead. Definitely will recommend him to any one needing his expertise.

      Dr. Hildebrandt was my former oncologist, and was fantastic so the bar is set high. Having said that, Dr. Yalniz is doing a great job and I can't complain at all.
