Review of Dr. Ewing


If you are searching for an expert oncologist or a second opinion, please go meet Dr. James Ewing. He is so compassionate, so patient, so gentle. Because he took so much time talking to me and reading my file, he discovered I had been on the wrong medication by my previous oncologist. He’s that good. I have never felt rushed and if I have a melt-down, which is pretty much every appointment, he patiently listens to my concerns and reassures me he will help me through whatever comes my way.

Review of Dr. Bagai

- in Phoenix, AZ |

Dr. Bagai is my #1 doctor. My life is in his hands and I completely trust him. I could have not done this without his expertise and God. Dr. Bagai is one of the most caring doctors that I have ever had. He always makes you feel comfortable and no matter what news you get....he has empathy and also will cheer you on.

Review of Dr. Kaur

- |

For the past two and a half years I have received treatment for Stage IV lung cancer from Dr. Kaur. Her care is exceptional and each time I leave her office I feel assured I am in the best medical hands possible. Her assistant Hinal and partner Dr. Rick Miller have also been an integral part of my treatment for which I am grateful. They return my calls promptly, answer the myriad of questions and make me feel as if I am the only patient they have. Dr. Kaur is a credit to her profession!

Review of Dr. Ambrad

- in Paradise Valley, AZ |

Dr. Ambrad and his entire support staff at Ironwood Scottsdale are amazing. They are technically exceptional and their bedside manner is second to none. Has horrible as it is to experience cancer, Dr. Ambrad and his staff address not only the medical side of cancer but the anxiety and emotional side of cancer. They are amazing.

Review of Dr. Ewing

- in Anthem |

I come to see Dr. Ewing at the Ironwood Glendale office. Everyone here takes many precautions to make sure I’m well taken care of. I had what I thought was a death sentence but pancreatic cancer was treated well with Ironwood. They have been monitoring my iron and everything in my body for several months to make sure the cancer stays out of my body for good. The nurses here will go out of their way to answer my questions.

Review of Dr. Saraceni

- in Buckeye |

I was referred to Ironwood by my primary care doctor that was affecting many areas of my body. They determined the best treatment for my different agressive cancers. Dr. Saraceni and Ironwood at Avondale has been compassionate and caring for me and my family. The care and work they do is very heartfelt. I feel the care that Dr. Saraceni and Matt give is heartfelt and advocates for me. They’ve gone out of their way to advocate for me every day of my care.

Review of Dr. Saraceni

- in Goodyear |

When I first met with Dr.Saraceni, she wrote down everything about my condition and explained my treatment options. She explained what each drug does and made sure I didn’t leave the office without having all of my questions answered. Before coming to Ironwood at Avondale, I went to another company downtown and it was terrible! Going to Ironwood in Avondale with Dr. Saraceni better beyond comparison. Nurse Mary is amazing. She follows up with me and makes sure I’m healthy!
