When I went for my first chemo session, I was scared and didn’t know what to expect. But everyone was wonderful. They saw me as an individual not a number. From the nurses to the volunteers—all were so kind and gentle. Nobody enjoys having cancer, but they made me feel special. And Dr. McBee! The man is a saint!

When I was first diagnosed with breast cancer, Dr. Saunders was my oncologist and Dr. Heiskell was my surgeon. I had 20 wonderful cancer-free years. Recently the disease recurred, but there was never a question about where I would go for treatment: I went right back to Dr. Saunders and Dr. Heiskell. I was pleased to learn that Dr. Saunder’s nurse, Jean, was still working with him. Fortunately, there are many new treatment options now available. I have only positive comments about Mon General!
Breast Cancer Patient
I truly panicked when I heard I must have surgery, but Dr. McBee and the staff at Zelda Weiss Cancer Center made every effort to assist me dealing with this diagnosis. The nurses working in the infusion center were especially considerate. Many times they took time to explain each step involved, as I had not been in the hospital or had any procedures since I had my tonsils out when I was a little girl. I praise the Lord for all the great folks at the cancer center and for my healing.

I really appreciate the private rooms in the infusion center. I bring my computer, and I get a lot of work done while I’m getting my treatment! You walk into the center, and they know you by name. Everyone is so pleasant – and competent. Dr. Saunders and his team, as well as the infusion team, has helped me get through this.
