My husband was a patient of Dr. C both at JCMC and Fresenius. She was an excellent doctor and a very caring compassionate person who cared not only for her patients but for their families as well. She always remembered to ask my husband about my health problems. He passed away last March and we were both saddened to hear of her health problems which led to her being on leave. He would be very sad to hear of her passing but glad to know that she is now pain-free as is he. My deepest sympathy to her family.
