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.
