I just finished radiation treatment for stage II prostate cancer. Dr. Garza, his staff and equipment performed very well over 9 weeks of daily doses of radiation. Never a wait, in fact usually was done and back on the road before the scheduled start time.

It was truly my good fortune however, to be referred to medical professionals like Dr. Kocurek and you who clearly explained treatment options and patiently answered the many questions that were troubling me. Thanks to you both, I was able to face my surgery and radiation decisions with confidence. But what made those long weeks of radiation treatments bearable, was the personable and upbeat manner of your nursing staff. THANKS, Angela and Eric and all who were there to assist!! Theo Sanders

I went in very apprehensive for salvage radiation therapy following prostatectomy. Dr. Garza was very knowledgeable and approachable with my questions. The staff were highly professional, friendly and put me at ease. Highly recommend.

One acquires a lot of medical adventures by the time one is in his 70?s and few of them are pleasant. I expected my 45 days of radiation treatment for prostate cancer to be an ordeal. The professionalism, energy, and caring attention of Dr. Garza and his staff made the therapy a positive experience. After the first two visits I actually looked forward to the daily sessions. If you have prostate cancer, as a fellow patient, I wholeheartedly recommend ACFRO to you.
