Dr. Pirkowski and his fine staff are top-notch at every level. I had 45 radiation treatments and not one second of those times were they not encouraging, upbeat, motivational and I could use 100 other adjectives. They are nothing short of sensational. They have everyday problems like all of us, and to be upbeat every second is truly phenomenal.

I just completed 45 days of radiation treatment with Dr. Pirkowski. He and his staff are absolutely the best! I also include the bus drivers Ron and Monica because they also played a role in the total process. Everyone was very courteous, and had an uplifting demeanor about them. When my wife and I asked questions by phone, or in person, our questions were answered in a manner that we could understand the information provided. The ride to Daytona on the bus was pleasant because the drivers did not drive recklessly, and it provided an opportunity to socialize with others, who were going through a similar experience. I am looking forward to my follow-up appointment in 90 days from today. Thanks for everything.
