Dr. Healey Saved My Life
Last summer, I had a kidney stone treated by Dr. Healey. In the process of treatment, Dr. Healey performed a couple of tests that he doesn’t normally do (and he says he’s not sure exactly what prompted him to do so). Those tests led to a diagnosis of bladder cancer and subsequent treatment. This morning, Dr. Healey told me I am now cancer free and, despite the need for some maintenance treatments, the cancer is unlikely to return. Whether it was a “hunch” or divine intervention, my cancer was discovered very early and, as a result, the treatment was successful. Dr. Healey saved my life!

Allayed My Fears And Discomfort
After several visits and tests, Dr. Ramos had to give me some bad news. He was kind and straightforward with his information and presented many options for me to pick from for prostate cancer. The prostate biopsy was uncomfortable but Dr. Ramos talked me through it and allayed my fears and discomfort. I am hard of hearing and he was not disturbed when I asked him to repeat words that were not familiar and he would explain any questions. I think I am lucky to have found such a good doctor.
