Dr. Kartalian, Thank you so much for your help and for your referring me to an orthopaedic oncologist. It was discovered that I had thyroid cancer which was the reason for the lump in my calf and not a running injury. Thank you for being so brilliant since not many physicians believed or thought it possible that thyroid cancer can migrate to the soft tissue in the leg. I am fully recovered from the cancer. Thank you again!” ––Patient

Dr. Kartalian, Thank you for being so kind and helpful to me through all of my visits to the office. I appreciate you.” ––Patient
