Cheri explains why it is important for patients to know that their doctors are advocating for their health.

I think it’s critical that a patient knows that the doctor and his staff work together as a team in order to advocate for us as patients. At the time I got to Dr. Dahiya’s office, I was very ill, and I was almost too sick to be able to stick up for myself. And they knew how sick I was, and they were able to support me kindly and say, you know, “What do you need and how can we support you to get you through this period of time?” They are very kind-hearted and very warm, loving people, and it’s been just wonderful to be able to have that support and to know that they are fighting for me and for my health, which I choose to still keep fighting for.
