Keep up the good work. Everybody in the radiation group was great. All of you took good pictures for the Hays Daily News on Sunday.

Very helpful and very courteous. I was greeted every time I came in. always answered my questions so I could understand everything. Hopefully the new machines will provide better and faster service. Every person was very helpful and kind.

Dr. Prasad was very kind and always answered questions. All nurses and staff were friendly, especially Andrea.

All the staff with radiation was very nice and when they took blood it was easy and painless.

Andria was very caring.

I feel that every person I have had helping me has been exceptional. I can't thank each and every one of you enough. You are so great!

Really appreciate Dr. Abbereish.  We have a large family with many from out of town.  Dr. A spent 45 minutes or more talking to our family answering questions which made us handle things easier.  We think Dr. A is awesome!

I was in the Dreiling/Schmidt Cancer Institute while a family member was getting chemo.  I am very impressed with the facility and the nurses that work here.  I can't pick out just one particular nurse because they are all great.  Please get them high honors and keep up the good work!

The Oncology Dept here is exceptional!  My husband could not have received better care anywhere.  They were thoughtful and adjusted to any special circumstances we had.  I would like to name a few names that should be praised.  Dr. Prasad, Andrea, Brenda, Camille, and Stephanie.  It's a shame you have to be sick to meet such a nice group of professional people!  Thank You!
