Dr. Mina Ma and Dr. Leena Nathan helped me catch cancer early

By diana b

I often report symptoms of various kinds to my longtime internist, Dr. Mina Ma. She has a great ability to determine what should be of concern. Fourteen years ago, she decided I should seek further help for some odd spotting. Because she knew when to be concerned, I went to Dr. Leena Nathan who after some testing, immediately sent me to a busy, outstanding surgeon and got me in quickly. UCLA surgeon Dr. Robin Farias-Eisner, completed the job with a hysterectomy. It was endometrial cancer in its earliest stage. No further treatment was needed as the cancer was confined. The expertise of these doctors , who worked incredibly quickly to get a diagnosis, prevented what might have become a major , life-threatening problem. I will be forever grateful.
