Patient Testimonials

I was 29 when I came to Arlington Cancer Center because another place told me to put my affairs in order. I had a two-year-old daughter who I wanted to see graduate from high school. I just celebrated my 50th birthday and my daughter graduates next spring. I am doing fine.- S.H.
The oncologist at the major world-renowned cancer center told me they only had one type of treatment for my prostate cancer. His nurse told me they would make me comfortable when it stopped working in a couple of years. I sought out ACC because it is known for the newest and most aggressive cancer treatments. I am alive and well years after that other center said they would make me comfortable.- D.A.
I am grateful for my individualized treatment plan and the genuine care I receive through the doctors, nurses and staff at ACC.- S.L.
