"Dr. Oza has always known my health and surgical history. He answers my questions and clearly explains results of diagnostic tests and my annual clinical evaluation. He is a very skilled surgeon and a knowledgeable and wise physican. Dr. Oza is also a very good, kind and compassionate man. He is concerned about me as a person, not just a patient who has had cancer."
