How likely are you to recommend Dr. Claxton?

(Select your rating)
I have seen Dr. Claxton for the last 3 years for the treatment of my CML and he is my favorite oncologist to date. I have seen 4 other doctors in Chicago and Philadelphia and he is by far the best. His care and expertise have given me confidence in my diagnosis. He is thorough, understanding and warm. I live in Philadelphia and travel 2 hours to see him.
