Patient Comments (2)

Switched oncologists after bad care to Dr. Cornelius, upon referral. I owe my life to her. She explained what we needed to do, aggressive treatment for aggressive cancer, but with positivity and confidence. If I could give her--and her entire team--100 stars, I would.

Very happy with the treatment and care I received from Dr. Cornelius. I was disappointed when she left the area of the country where I live!
