What People Say About Dr. Joanne Kurtzberg, MD
Dr. Kurtzberg has been treating me for my entire life. I was born with an extremely rare cancer and was given 2 weeks at the most to live. Dr. K has helped me with the side effects of the 8 chemotherapies and maximum amount of radiation one person can receive in their lifetime. I truly praise God for Dr. Kurtzberg.
