I believe Dr Ingrid Mayer is the most brilliant compassionate oncologist in the world! She has provided the best possible treatment for me when there was no hope elsewhere. I am very confident in anything she does for my care plan and she is able to do this in an most admirable manner as she is able to combine e my cancer treatment with the utmost in realistic hope and the most comfort possible. That a world- renowned oncologist could take care of my treatment plan while being as kind to me and all of my family as a family friend means that she breathes rare air as a fiirst- rate human being and a one I. A Million physician.
