Wende Dixon and Dr. Norman Neslin have done an exceptional job for our community. MVEC has always been a leader in diagnosing and treating patients suffering from esophagus, stomach, colon, liver, and pancreatic cancers. Still, now with COVID-19, the Center is ensuring that our patients are proactively evaluating their health while staying vigilant and safe.
