“This facility has cared for two members of my family. My wife had breast cancer and my son had testicular cancer. Dr. Tran and her staff are absolutely the best at what they do!! My wife is now cancer-free for 8 years! My son who has autism was misdiagnosed in the beginning because of his inability to express his pain and symptoms. This led to cancer spreading throughout his body before understanding what it was. Dr. Tran did all she could for him for the first week but his condition worsened. We had to make of making him as comfortable as could be because he was not expected to make it past 6 months. Well…after 5 years in hospice care, he has slowly gotten healthier and healthier and so we decided we needed to have him checked. Dr. Tran said that he looks amazing, seems healthy and there is no reason to be in hospice anymore! We still need to have more detailed tests to see where the cancer is, but WOW! Thank you for everything! This facility is absolutely a great place for care.” – Gene C.
