In the spirit of transparency, all patient comments are posted as written by the patient, whether they are positive or negative. We only exclude comments if they are deemed to be slanderous or libelous, contain profanity or vulgar language, or do not relate to the patient's experience with the doctor involved.

"My physician is an exceptional, caring, extremely knowledgeable Oncologist. Before going to the CTCA Phoenix, I was diagnosed with Stage IV Poorly Differentiated Neuroendocrine Cancer - Aggressive and was given at most one year to live. The results of my testing, interpreted by my physician and the CRCA Phoenix team changed my diagnosis from Stage IV to curative! I am so extremely grateful to everyone who works at the Center and to my physician who gave me hope. Thank you all."
