Dr. Armstrong is truly an amazingly skilled doctor! My 17 year old daughter was diagnosed with papillary thyroid cancer and naturally we were scared to death. He took the time to educate us on this type of cancer and calmed our fears. He did the surgery on our daughter with amazing results. He kept in mind that she's just 17 and made sure that her scarring was minimal and that she will now have a normal life. I can not express what a Godsend Dr. Armstrong has been through the unsettling time!
