This review is solely on the nurse Goldie ??? (I believe was her name) who assisted during my Bone Marrow Biopsy. She did not hesitate to pray for me when I asked. She noticed my anxiousness right away, laid her hands over my head and although I don’t remember much except waking up after the procedure... I do remember the angel who cared for me#NurseLove


Ok, having cancer is a major drag, and I mean MAJOR drag, but my experience here was pretty amazing.  I was recently diagnosed with Prostate Cancer and came in here to explore both surgical and radiation options.  Everything is cutting edge here, from the robotic surgery equipment, to the Varian Beam Radiation treatments.  I ended up doing a 40 day radiation treatment protocol with Dr. Peter LaNasa.  They took my insurance, explained everything to me in great detail.  EVERY SINGLE DAY I went in for treatment, I was warmly greeted by his staff by name.  The technicians were fun (and cute), and absolutely made the best out of what could have been a stressful situation.  Can’t say enough about my experience with Dr. LaNasa and Dr. Sheperd (the robotic surgeon who explained that whole process to me).
