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!
