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. Pineda

- in Chicago, IL |

Dr. Pineda is the best in the world for me. I went to see him March 2, 2015 at Northwestern. I honestly thought I was going to die. He explained everything in detail and by the time I left, he had lifted a huge load of my mind. I left after my meeting with him, that I actually felt "Oh my God, I'm going to live! You see, he said to me "I'm not looking to just treat you, I'm looking for a CURE". It's been 3 years and I miss him. Thank you Dr. Pineda. Also I'm going to be a grandmother in Oct 2018

Review of Dr. Kantala

- in Apache Junction |

I have been under the care of Dr. Kantala for 6 years and have found him to be an excellent doctor and very personable. He has taken excellent care or me and answers any questions I might have about my condition. He always goes above and beyond to make sure I am satisfied with my treatments and works closely with my heart doctor to make sure my treatments are not having any bad affects on my heart. He has been wonderful with me. I highly recommend him.

Review of Dr. Kantala

- in Mesa, AZ |

There are a lot of choices for cancer centers but you can only pick one. I don't think that anyone can do any better. Treatment is challenging and Dr. Kanala's staff makes this experience a lot better than it normally is.

Review of Dr. Halbur

- in Apache Junction, AZ |

He's doing a great job. He interacts with us. I once had a difficult time understanding something but he took care of my concerns. I think all of the staff are doing a great job with my care. I think that Dr. Halbur and Ironwood are top notch!

Review of Dr. Halbur

-Mesa, AZ |

Dr Halbur is my oncologist for my stage 4b Nodular Sclerosis Hodgkins Lymphoma. I am now a year out of treatment and in remission. I whole-heartedly believe that Dr. Halbur's attention to detail, and patient care is what has led me to still be here today. I owe my life to him, and all the folks at Ironwood CRC. I feel that he answered all of my questions, in a plain laymen terms way that left me feeling better at the end of the appointments.
