Experience in The New York Eye Cancer Center
My experience in the eye cancer center was excellent. Dr. Finger is an outstanding physician and professor. It is incredible how much I have learned from him only in one month. The people in the office are kind; everyone there helps each other to offer the best care to all the patients. Every patient I saw in the clinic was pleased with the care received by Dr. Finger and his team in ?The Eye Cancer Center.
I would also want to highlight that since my first day at Dr. Finger’s office, he encouraged me to do a challenging study. He has been a great mentor on giving me the tools and showing me the path I needed to follow to develop it, given his vast experience on Research in many fields related to Ocular Oncology.
During my period as a physician in Chile, I noticed there were so many patients with eye cancer. Before coming to the Eye Cancer Center, I did not have all the necessary tools and knowledge to treat properly these patients. I was very surprised with the results of the treatments that Dr. Finger had with his patients and the wide set of alternatives that he was capable of offering them. I am very grateful for having the opportunity to learn from Dr. Finger and his team. This has been my first step into Ocular Oncology and I am looking forward to deepen my knowledge is this field so I can provide the right answers and deploy the best treatments possible for my patients in Chile.
