"I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1999 and went to another oncologist. In 2001, my breast cancer returned and I wanted a second opinion. I choose CBC and had the honor of meeting Dr Geetha Joseph. She took care of ME. In 2008, I was diagnosed with Leiomyosarcoma and went to Cancer Treatment Centers of America, who specialized in this type of cancer. They treated me good but I missed Dr Joseph and the feeling of safety she gives me, so I returned to CBC. Dr Joseph is the best doctor for me, she listens and cares about ME."
--Janet S., a CBC patient
"Dr. Scullin has a special place in my heart, since he was the doctor who first visited me in the hospital after my breast cancer diagnosis. Even though it's been 14 yrs, I can still see him walking through the door that day. And one other time when I was having problems with chemo, he called Dr. Grimaldi into the exam room with me, and together they brainstormed an alternative that made the world of difference in my nausea/vomiting. I so appreciated their genuine concern and the way they included me in the decision-making process. I truly feel so honored, too, to work here--these docs perform miracles everyday, and impact people's lives in ways I doubt they even comprehend!"
--Carol, a CBC patient and employee
"I'm a new patient at CBC and am probably one of Dr. Code's very first patients here. When I first walked into the office, I could tell this was a special place. I knew that every patient who comes here is probably facing some sort of serious, maybe life-threatening health issues. I wondered immediately what each person's story was and what they were going through. It didn't take long to realize that every staff person I came into contact with at CBC has respect and compassion for the people who are patients there. Everyone is so kind and patient and pleasant. That makes such a difference when you're afraid and uncertain about what the future holds. And Dr. Code is so thorough and patient with me. He listens and spends time and calls me promptly when he has information to share with me. I feel so well cared for in every way by everyone. This is a special place."
--Sharon, a CBC patient
"I'm 52 and was diagnosed with Hemochromotosis by Dr. Webb. This benign genetic condition requires that a pint of blood be drawn every few weeks or so... for the rest of my life! The good news is that the staff and doctors at CBC are always welcoming, friendly and very efficient."
--Tim, a CBC patient
"The horizon for advances in the care of cancer and blood disorders has broadened tremendously and is based on clinical and basic research. This is an exciting field that continues to evolve. The chance to alter the course of a patient's life led me to Hematology and Oncology."
"Patients come here in the first place for a 'cure' and what they find is hope, compassion, warmth and a committed group of medical professionals. They aren't treated as numbers but as real people with real illnesses. Some patients even become like family to the staff."
"There are many who think the work we do is sad and depressing. The truth is the work we do is really what life is all about: helping people make each day count and providing them with the support they need to continue to live their lives as normally as possible; to provide symptom management, which will enable them to have the quality of life they so richly deserve. It is an honor to be a part of this process and this practice."
--CBC Research Nurse
"The doctors here at CBC give their all to their patients and truly devote their lives to them. They do this for employees as well. It is truly an honor and a privilege to work with the doctors of CBC."
"The people I work with here at CBC are genuinely here for the patients. It's not just a job to them. The employees here go out of their way to make a difference to a patient. I have witnessed numerous occasions where employees here devoted their time, money, and compassion to the patients. Personal relationships are developed here every day."
"We get to touch the lives of patients with very serious illnesses and give them hope and the means to cope with their disease."
"I have referred friends and family members to CBC because of my confidence in the outstanding care they would receive. It is a great comfort to know that the people closest to you are receiving the best possible care. Thank you!"
"It is so deeply rewarding for me to be involved with the patients, that it's hard to explain what it means to me. All of our patients are unique and need to be blessed with special attention and tender care. I feel that we (at CBC) are graced with dedicated physicians who have lived by their oath to be honest and hard-working, and offer the best oncology care around. I am so proud to work at CBC. I know and always tell the patients they are in the best hands that God has to offer."
