May 29, 2019
Dr Orlawski is one step above all other doctors to me.... You see this man/doctor doesn’t take giving up or putting time on someone’s life. He’s always looking for a new and up coming treatment and in my case he stepped outside the lines and try something new to treat my stage 4 Melanoma, when others gave me months to live he stepped in and said no!!! And tried me on an old drug(not for Melanoma) and my tumors were gone. I’m proud to say this’s a new drug now used to treat Melanoma cancer patients. Although, we may not have the same cancer or the same diagnosis and/or out come rest assured this man makes each day a new challenge to help everyone he possibly can to fight cancer with all he can offer you... THANKS DR “O” for giving me my life back
