    How was your appointment with Dr. Lister?

    Jan 23, 2019
    Dr. Lister is a caring genius. I went to him as a second opinion after I was misdiagnosed and treated with chemo at another hospital. I did eventually develop diffuse large b-cell and tcell lymphoma. Without hesitation he attacked the lymphoma with aggressive chemo and arranged for two surgeries. He then performed an allogeneic stem cell transplant. Dr. Lister eliminated the scare. His caring demeanor and his profound expertise cured me. His sense of humor is greatly appreciated.
