In 2014, I was diagnosed with Stage 3 colorectal cancer and immediately began to research a surgeon at UCLA. I was really lucky to find Dr. Anne Lin, a compassionate and wonderful surgeon, who took me into the preparation of my surgery at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. Dr. Lin worked together with Dr. Arnold Chin from UCLA Urology to remove my cancerous tumor. I was released shortly after with follow up appointments with Dr. Linn, who helped me gain home care for my surgery wound. I then began chemotherapy with Dr. Michael Rosove, which lasted for about 4 months. Doctors Lin, Chin and the wonderful nurse practitioner, Sarah Reardon, became my UCLA family who helped me to regain my health. In December 2016 I had my first colonoscopy since 2014 with Dr. Christina Ha and the outcome was a "Clean Colon" and no test required for the next 5 years. Thank you, Anne, Arnold and Sarah as I have never felt better thanks to your care. I LOVE MY DOCTORS!
