The staff is the best, from the front office to all the ladies in the treatment area. If every office had the people this office does more people would go the doctor.

These ladies made all the difference to me all through the treatment. They all need a raise; they are the best staff I have ever had at any place that I have been to. Dr. Harrison is friendly and knows what he is talking about and not afraid to listen to you and tell you what is what.

The radiation oncology department at HaysMed is wonderful. Dr. Harrison is so calming and makes sure you understand what radiation is and how they are going to help you go through the program. Dr. Harrison’s nurse Susie is also calming and always willing to answer questions and help you. The three radiation technicians, Haley, Andrea and Melissa are very kind, friendly and efficient. Everything is always ready for you so you spend as little time as possible in treatment. They are also very helpful . Andreas even helped me to my car on an icy day. Because of the departments expertise, radiation was not as bad as I had anticipated.

Susie, Andrea, Melissa, Haley, Dr. Harrison and Dr. Rodriguez are such an amazing team. They have made my cancer diagnosis much more bearable and pleasant. They care!!!

I am very pleased with the treatment that I am getting from HaysMed during my time with breast cancer. They doctors, nurses, receptionists, aides and others were extremely competent, helpful and caring. All combined for wonderful care. I am grateful the cancer was found early and treated quickly although I’m confident I would have received the same care had it been more advanced. Thank you HaysMed!

The entire staff at Dreiling Schmidt Cancer Institute Radiation Oncology have made this unfortunate experience something to be dealt with much easier. The smiles help to start my day off on the best foot, even though the treatment for my cancer is a scary situation. Thank you all.

Rhonda – she worked diligently on getting the proper paperwork completed on my treatments. She is a very caring employee. HaysMed is fortunate to have her.

Dr. Hill is a very caring doctor. He is very persistent on making sure the patient gets the treatment they want and need and does not want his patients in pain. We highly recommend Dr. Hill.

How in the world do you expect me to point out exceptional people in an organization when they are all exceptional. Why do I say that? I have never been treated any better at any place than the radiation therapy (Oncology) department at Hays Med. They were all very caring, concerned, hardworking, professional and overall exceptional. They all tried to make me feel comfortable in an uncomfortable situation, and I say they succeeded very well!

My radiation went smooth I am thankful for all the girls back there. Melissa, Beth, there are two others that are back there both great. They are blonde can’t remember their names. Donna at front desk is so helpful. All the girls have been wonderful. Thank you so much for all you have done for me.

The team you have assembled together on the radiological side of treatment is nothing short of AMAZING. They make dealing with this disease a whole lot more tolerable. Brenda, Andrea, Melissa, Suzie and Haley are truly my “Angels”. I Thank God for placing them in my life to treat and overcome prostate cancer!!

The entire staff of Dreiling Schmidt Cancer Institute has treated me very good.

We have felt very blessed by the time we entered the doors until leaving. Each one from the receptionist, nurses, technicians, doctors has been superb. They have each made what could have been a frightening experience into a positive one. We are grateful for this facility to be within driving distance. It is a calming atmosphere to enter.

The doctors and nurses show genuine concern for how the patient is feeling and for their comfort. Every visit I was greeted with a warm welcome. We would like to give a big “Thank You” to HMC, their Doctors, Specialists, Nurses and all supporting staff for the exceptional care given to me with my recent medical issue. I must rate my experience as an A+. Thanks go out to the Doctors Lopez, Prasad and Harrison that helped us make an informed decision for the treatment we selected. Their expertise and guidance was extremely helpful and reassuring. They would take the time to inform me and my wife with every step along the way. Making each of my 33 days of treatment pleasant and comforting started with the friendly smile and sincere welcome in the morning for me and my wife from Brenda at the admissions desk. Passing the nurse’s station was another warm welcome from Suzie. She always took time to engage in friendly conversation and yet maintain her professionalism each Monday for my weekly progress report. When I crossed paths with Leo he was always friendly and genuinely concerned about my wellbeing. The ladies that administered my treatment were exceptional. They always created an atmosphere that was professional, friendly and extremely comforting. They kept me informed and answered any questions that I would ask. Andrea, Melissa and Hayley are the best. Once again “Thank You” to all.

This radiation has been an exceptional experience for me. All three radiologists are
extremely kind. I was very nervous starting this, but their smiles and very caring attitudes to me really made me relax and open up. The receptionist was really cool. She always greeted me very warmly and with a great sense of humor. They turned a bad illness into a great
experience.

Please forgive me for not remembering names but the radiology crew at your center are superb! From the daily morning greeting and departure from Brenda, to the awesome girl in that department who have worked with me so nicely. They have become personal friends and have made my many visits there easy to get through. I loved talking and joking with them especially about the ice cold hands that make me jump! Great gals, not one in
particular but all three of them provided excellent service and care to their patients! Keep up the great work! My experience hence has been very positive! Thank all of you so very much!

I would like to thank everyone in RAD oncology Dept. From the receptionist, to the nurses who treated me to all of the doctors I have met. I have been treated with kindness,
compassion, courtesy and each and everyday everyone was concerned as to how I was feeling each day. And to all the other patients I have met. I want to thank you all very, very much. HaysMed can be thankful for such wonderful staff in their cancer unit.
