SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Very good experience.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

I value Dr Rockson's opinion so went to him as a non-surgical 'opinion'. He is clearly an expert in the area of lymphedema and appreciate his interest in my case given his busy schedule.

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

Dr. Rockson was very nice, wish we could have spent more time discussing my case.

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

I would see Dr. Rockson again without question. He is a wonderful practitioner. I wish I lived closer to Palo Alto to have him as my physician.
