I feel especially blessed to have Dr. Palchak as my oncologist. He listens to me, respects me, and is one of the most compassionate physicians I have ever met. His staff, Crystal, Karen, Jennifer, Erin, and Phea are extraordinary people. I don't think that I could be in better hands. The atmosphere of the treatment rooms is comfortable. I feel like I am receiving the best possible care and would not hesitate to refer anybody needing cancer treatment. You won't be disappointed!

Dr. Palchak is so knowledgeable and he shares that information. No matter what question I ask he comes up with a way to explain it to me, often with hand drawn illustrations. :) I highly recommend Dr. Palchak and the entire PCR office.
