"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!"


"UMMC is the place I chose to go for treatment when I was diagnosed with breast cancer almost 2 years ago. From the very first time I met with the doctors, I knew I was in good hands. My surgeon, Dr. Khakpour was an angel in disguise of a doctor. She put my mind at ease and I knew she truly cared what happened to me. She was always there to answer my many questions and to relieve my many doubts. My reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Ed Rodriguez is an absolute miracle worker. His care, empathy and concern for his patients are hard to come by these days. The wonderful doctors and their staff are what made a terrible ordeal much easier to cope with. I wouldn't go any other place. They are truly the best!"


"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!"


"Please let Dr. Ampey know that we are so thankful for him and his knowledge. He helped us so much when he was in Bing, NY and my husband had prostate cancer. Let him know we are thankful for him, and all is still well here."


"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."


"I had AML and was treated by Dr. Gojo. She is a great doctor."


"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!"


"My husband was just diagnosed with a very rare cancer (blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm). He is getting ready to start his third round of chemo, and so far we really like it at UMGCC, especially the nurses/staff on the 9th floor. We're looking forward to being able to post about our success!"


"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."
