Patient Stories

“A routine blood test showed there was too much calcium in my blood. My doctor said this can be an indication of cancer and sent me for a chest X-ray. The test found something unusual, and a bronchoscopy and biopsy showed I had a tumor in the lower lobe of my left lung — even though I don’t smoke.

Doctors were able to remove it in surgery along with samples of lymph nodes, which didn’t have any signs of cancer.

Currently, I’m cancer-free and will follow up with CT scans about every six months.”

“I can’t speak highly enough of my medical team that helped pull me through this ordeal. They were exceptional from the physicians (Drs. Dafcik, Simkovitz, Dressler, Iannuzzi and Berard) to the nurses and support staff.” He even goes further to say that everyone he came in contact with at St. Vincent’s, including “the valet parking, housekeeping and orderly staff, were troopers; all making sure my experience was comfortable and positive.” - See more at: http://www.stvincents.org/medical-services/cancer-care/cancer-testimonials/testimonials-Lous-story#sthash.45XFKAC8.dpuf“I can’t speak highly enough of my medical team that helped pull me through this ordeal.
