It’s been as good of an experience as you can expect. I don’t want to be getting cancer treatment but I’m fortunate to be at Ironwood where everything is organized and I’m well cared for.

I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and Ironwood was highly recommended by my surgeon and physician. I came here afraid but was quickly pleased with Ironwood. Cancer is a horrible thing to go experience but Dr. Balandin and his staff at Ironwood in Sun City make it about as comfortable and positive as possible.

I was referred to Dr. Balandin to manage my blood thinners after experiencing a bad motorcycle accident. He is very thorough but more importantly he is a good listener. He has a confidence about him that makes you feel like a team player.

He took plenty of time with me answering questions and recommending follow-up. He was friendly, engaged, and I felt he was concerned for my welfare.
