"Cancer is the worst thing that’s ever happened to me, but I am so glad Dr. Frakes was my doctor. At cCARE, I always felt like I had their full attention. They are so competent, and they will go the extra mile for you. I see now after working with other cancer patients that not everyone out there gets the same level of care that I received."How Dr. Frakes helped Susan beat breast cancer
