I would absolutely give Dr. Saraceni a 10! I didn’t initially want chemo but Dr. Saraceni was able to convince me it was the right treatment after a detailed review of my medical history and health needs. Dr. Saraceni is really patient oriented. She doesn’t just give you advice but better care for you. She explains in detail what’s going on; what the procedure for. She explains in detail what you need and what type of care you need. She’s up close and personal. Dr. Saraceni is absolutely amazing! I wouldn’t want anyone else.

Dr. Saraceni is very warm hearted. She’s caring and easy to talk to. She’s very open and willing to talk to me about anything. She’s there for me and says I can “call her anytime.” Mary (the nurse in the infusion area) has been great. She’s been helpful in answering any and all of my questions. Everyone here has been helpful.

The care from the team and Dr. Saraceni is outstanding. I left the oncologist group I was with and Ironwood has been far better in terms of care and the time they spend with me.

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.

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!

The first thing I noticed when I walked in was the giant teddy bear. This is where I want to be. So far everyone we’ve met has been very nice.
