          I have been going to him for years. He is very good-and compassionate-caring.

              Have been going to him for years.  Definitely saved my life.  (Don't hold that against him)

                Hi

                He is not my doctor but I have seen him speak many times at melanoma conferences.  He is super bright and seems determined to find a solution.

                  He is not my doctor—I consulted with his colleague (Paul Chapman) a few times.  But I know of someone who sees Wolchok and she adores him.  She has commented that he is very nice and very smart.

                  I saw him speak several months ago at a melanoma  symposium and he did seem very nice and as someone posted above–determined to find an answer to this disease.  Great speaker as well–out of the panel of doctors he was my favorite—speaks to the middle of the crowd.

                  Hope this helps.

                  Regards,

                  Jen
