Every now and then, we like to share some of the feedback we receive from our cancer patients....

"I am writing to express my gratitude for the professional, sincere, care I have received during my sessions with Dr. Christina Austin-Valere (Oncology Social Worker).

I am a “Breast/Melanoma Cancer Survivor!” During my “survival period I have been fighting, or attempting to fight for my life. Dr. Christina Austin-Valere has made such a huge difference for me in my plight...Dr. Christina has made me feel more whole as an individual, more capable, and after 76 years on this planet, confident! This is huge since I am endlessly put down! She offers the utmost degree of professional care possible! She is the epitome of professionalism, caring, kindness, ever ready to assist---nothing is too much for her!---this is spite of being involved in a stressful area of care.

I just wanted to share my extraordinary experience---in a trying situation, i.e. breast/melanoma cancer recovery. I could not have asked for more! Please tell her thank You for me, she is wonderful!!!

I thought you would want to know of the professionalism and caring that is generated by your staff. Well done! I feel blessed to have Dr. Christina Austin-Valere giving me her wonderful words of encouragement, and care. Dr. Christina Austin-Valere is the very best!!! She has a true sensitivity and concern for those that she is assisting! I can only hope/pray that other cancer victims are as blessed as I have been."
