  • Patient Testimonials

    • Kaci Port Angeles, WA 12.05.23

      We will be forever grateful for Dr. Lamble. He, and his team, were transparent and compassionate throughout the entire treatment of our 3.5 year old daughter with Stage 4 Lymphoma. Having a child diagnosed with cancer is incredibly draining on an emotional, physical, and mental level. He is exactly the person you want taking care of you and your family during a difficult time. THANK YOU, DR. LAMBLE!
