Personal Statement: “I’ve been here since 1997, and I’ve seen Markey grow in terms of its size and complexity. I’ve seen the technologies change, I’ve seen the evolution of our department, and I have participated in its growth. I understand where our patients come from, and I understand their limitations. I’ve learned to understand their culture, their feelings, and how they think and look at life. And we have all learned to incorporate all those things into what we do here at Markey and in our radiation oncology department.”

    He/They were GREAT! They did not beat around the bush. He told me everything. Good as well as bad news. In terms I could understand. Not all medical mumbo jumbo.
