In August of 2005, I was diagnosed with Renal Cell Carcinoma. The kidney tumor was quite large and Dr. Daniel Curhan, assisted by Dr. Rhodes removed it. It was a painful and long recovery, but the process was made so much easier because of the thorough and expert care of Dr. Daniel Curhan. There were frequent tests and check ups and Dr. Curhan was always patient, kind and informative. The entire staff was also very attentive as well. Then, after enjoying good health for several years, in April 2010 there was an abdominal cancer scare. Thankfully, the mass turned out to be benign. Dr. David Nomeland, assisted by Dr. Hogan removed it and I had a hysterectomy. Dr. Nomeland is an excellent physician, and his caring staff are absolutely superb, and I am so grateful to have such fantastic healthcare! Then, I was diagnosed in October 2010 with breast cancer. I have been treated by an outstanding expert Dr. Blount of the Cancer Center, and a personable and expert surgeon Dr. Latimer initially (who recently retired) and my primary physician Dr. Jeffrey Hadsall. Then, my surgeon has been Dr. James Dunn and my oncologist has been Dr. Mark Abate. I have once again been treated with the best, top notch care possible! Dr. James Dunn has been kind, detail oriented and a top notch surgeon. Dr. Mark Abate is very patient, thorough and outlines in detail my progress and treatment program. Their nursing staff has been so considerate and awesome. I've been very pleased with the treatment I've been given by these expert and caring professionals at the Sansum Clinic and the Cottage Hospital Staff as well! I'm still in treatment, but hope to be in remission once the treatment is done!!
