Excellent doctor, very good with patient and family. Answers all questions with an understandable response. She truly cares about her patients and their present and future welfare. She follows up closely on their condition and is accessible. Sometimes you wait awhile because another patient has an issue but since I was one of them I completely understand and wait my turn. I feel very fortunate to have had Dr Lamar as my oncologist.
