Patient Comments (2)
in Sag Harbor, NY |
I've been a patient of Dr. Jurcic's for about a year now, and I can honestly say that he's one of the best physicians that I've encountered. I hold him in such high esteem prime arily because of his accessibility--a rare trait for an oncologist. Whenever I call the office with an urgent question or concern, it is Dr. J (not a nurse or resident) who returns my call. And if I miss his call, he then calls ALL of my contact numbers until he reaches me! Such devotion to a patient is rare & laudable!

Just know, that when you are dealing with Dr. Jurcic that he is one of the most incredibly talented and knowledgable Leukemia Physicians on the planet. And he is the chief of a practice of other equally amazing doctors, each with their own special sub-specialty. Compassionate, smart, and willing to listen and accommodate to the patient's style and needs. We have spent several months in-patient. And the doctors and staff feel like cherished family members. If you are diagnosed, come here!
