  • "Dr Zuniga saw my daughter Alexandra yesterday for her first cancer exam. This is a very scary time for all of us especially my daughter who is only 18 years old. The Dr was so kind and spoke directly to her especially when she had a question. He was very soft spoken and did not treat her as if she was just a kid that would not understand how complex this cancer could be. He explained to her that it is rare and after the MRI we will have more answers. I really believe we made a good choice going there for our first step."
