What Patients Say About Dr. Mak
“After I was diagnosed with a brain tumor my life came to a shocking halt. I was terrified. After seeing Dr. Mak, my whole experience was turned around in such a positive way. Knowing about the CyberKnife took half of my fears away. The other half went away during treatment. It was painless, relaxed, and the staff was so loving and friendly. I feel I was born again. Thanks so much.”
