    My experience with Huntsman began in 2021 and I was involved with 3 doctors. My radiation treatment is complete and I now have followup appts with Dr. Fitzgerald, my oncologist. I know some of my questions are varied but Dr. Fitzgerald always takes the time to discuss my health. I have every confidence in her knowledge and skill as a doctor but especially appreciate her personal time in our followup appointments.

    Even though Dr. Fitzgerald has been my doctor for 5 months I have come to respect and listen to what she says and what I need to do. She is the best doctor that I can have.

    Dr. Fitzgerald was amazing to consult with. I wish I could be a close friend as she is to involved with my health and I felt honest to the point she was uncomfortable with giving the diagnoises. May God be with her in her personal life and work.
