Patient Comments (10)
in Benton City, WA |
Highly recommend Dr. Lawenda for your cancer care needs. His cancer treatment programs and methods are excellent along with he/staff being totally engaged in your treatment and recovery. While undergoing immunotherapy for melanoma, incorporated his holistic approach and integrated oncology processes. I've taken advantage of his full suite of offerings including the integrated oncology website, acupuncture, supplements, Facebook, counseling, and radiation treatments. First class experience.

I can be a difficult patient because as a scientist I tend to take nothing for granted and ask a lot of questions. This Doctor gave me straight, complete answers. He is broadly competent and technically up to date. He uses latest diagnostic methods (e.g., DNA) and designs treatment for each patient. I consider myself very fortunate to have found this Doctor.

Dr Lawenda is clearly a physician who cares - he is very through and brings a such a command of this disease. He will help you through this and will go the extra mile to insure you are comfortable and understand what you need. He is a 'true healer' and his compassion is very evident the minute he walks into the room. I am so blessed and you will be too as Dr. Lawenda will do everything possible to insure you are in good hands and that you will get through this. His staff is very supportive.

I would highly recommend Dr. Lawenda to my friends and family. My Mom is 82 years old and was diagnosed with breast cancer. Dr. Lawenda is the second Radiological Oncologist that we've seen because we wanted a second opinion. Dr. Lawenda had studied my Mom's test results and was prepared to speak to us the minute he entered the room. He cited up to date medical studies, he stays current on new procedures and tests, he answered all of our questions, we weren't rushed. Excellent appointment!
Yakima, WA |
Dr. Lawenda was a breath of fresh air for us. A completely different experience then we've previously had with our local doctors. He already had most of my husbands case (started in 2014) read through and commented on numerous items, he was pretty thorough in his exam of the records and questions asked. He truly appears to have a deep concern for getting his patients on the best care possible for the situation. We left filled with hope!
in Richland, WA |
Dr. Lawenda spent over an hour with me during an integrative medical consultation. He thoroughly reviewed my extensive medical records and history of breast cancer, which currently represents almost 13 years. He is extremely knowledgeable and encompasses a diversified background. He was attentive, listened carefully, and answered all of my questions, which is of utmost importance to me as a patient. He and his entire staff offer exceptional medical care to the Tri-Cities.

Awesome Staff,Great Dr.-Patient relationship.They made a negative situation into a positive one.
in Las Vegas, NV |
Incredibly accurate on time appointments. Starting with the receptionist, the supporting staff, nurse Cynthia, technician Albert, and especially Dr, Lawenda. Each and every member of the staff made me feel comfortable, welcome, and as though I was their only patient. I was well informed and felt my health was in capable hands. The staff encouraged questions and listened when I spoke. Dr. Lawenda is extremely capable and compassionate. I highly, highly recommend this group of professionals.
in Las Vegas, NV |
He gave me the details of the side effects of my treatment. When I finished the series of treatments he offered me an appointment the next week, although he said most patients wait about a month. I made an appointment for the next month.
