"Excellent cancer center! The talent of the doctors and the compassion towards each patient is amazing to witness. The team gave me another decade with my mother after she was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. I will be forever grateful."
"The two doctors, Thoracic surgeon and gastroenterologist, who consulted and took care of my husband are absolutely fantastic! Would refer anyone to them!"
"The best staff ever.... They make sure your well taken care of, very compassionate...."
"I went through cancer surgery twice at UMGCC, and also had radiation treatments. Everyone was awesome! I still see Drs. Ord and Suntha every other month for check ups, and they are wonderful!"
"Dr. Baer treated me for Stage IV NHL at Roswell Park in 1996. I am happy to say that, 13+ years later, I couldn't be healthier. Thank you Maria, for my cure and the wonderful, personalized care you gave me. You truly saved my life, in so many ways!"
"My brother Perry had oral cancer surgery performed by Dr. Taylor who is a truly gifted, caring and knowledgeable godsend during my family's time of need. God bless Dr. Taylor, 6th floor staff and 2nd floor PACU recovery staff."
"Dr. Hanna and other staff members have allowed people with abdominal cancer to have hope. I wish the best of luck to a dear friend who will soon receive surgery and hopefully be a survivor!"
"I would like to commend Dr. Young Kwok and his team on a job well done! His whole department was so accommodating and confident, which I think is so important to the recovery of the patient. Being positive and confident really helped me through it."
"Thank you to UMGCC. Last year, my son had a serious illness that was thought to be leukemia. Thankfully, the leukemia results were negative, but being there for a week, the nurses and doctors were amazing in letting me know everything that was going on with my son. They are very caring and really know how to treat people dealing with a crisis. Thank you."
"I first came to UMGCC in 1995 when I was diagnosed with a rare tumor (leiomyosarcoma). From the nurses to the doctors UMGCC was a wonderful place to receive treatment. They never gave up on me. Unfortunately, I had a reoccurrence of the same cancer 3 years later, but thanks again to UMGCC I'm alive today to talk about it. It's been 9 years since my last bout with cancer and I'm doing great! Thanks UMGCC!"
"Thank you all so much for all your hard work. My colleague has just successfully completed a bone marrow transplant, and I am very grateful for all your expertise."
