very prompt

Appointment was for 12 Noon. Arrived at 11:50AM, didn't get seen initially by the aid for vital recording till 12:45PM, and saw Doctor about 12:55PM. From a business and courtesy perspective, this is unacceptable. Keep on time.

My experience at the Hillman Cancer Center was completely satisfactory from the valet parking to the attention given to my concerns by the staff and doctors. I'm happy with the results and am looking forward to the follow-up procedures which have been prescribed for me.

Dr Pingpank explained test results and what they meant. Explained future changes in department personnel. Future treatment options and what new treatments were on the horizon.

everything was excellent.

This surgeon is the best, and even though he thinks I should not have any pain, he listens to me. When I expressed that certain tests are not as good as others for me he listened and then was going to check before scheduling my next check so he did the best thing.

March 21, 2017

I was referred to Dr pingpank from Dr Edwards. I was very pleased with my first encounter with him and am very confident and satisfied with his knowledge and skills for my upcoming surgery.
