I see Dr. Cross every six months for smoldering myeloma. I like his willingness to answer questions and his ability to teach me more about my condition without making me feel inadequate.

My experience with Dr. Scott Cross started in 2005 when his team removed a carcinoid tumor. In 2014 his diagnosis of MDS led to chemotherapy and bone marrow transplant to clear health in 2106. His handling of my case was in every way professional, thorough and accurate. In September 2019, 44 months after remission, Dr. Cross diagnosed a return of MDS. Again, Dr. Cross prescribed an effective protocol that concluded with remission in January 2021. The treatments, administered by wonderful professionals at VOA, in a comfortable facility, made "going to the doctor" nearly pleasurable. Interviews with Dr. Cross, have always been informative, candid, and handled with dignity. Month after month of vital statistics, year after year of conversations following the business talk, proved to me that Dr. Scott cross is dedicated to his patients and has a well-masked sense of humor. Certainly, I will recommend him to family and friends.

Dr. Cross is always a pleasure to have as a doctor. He is very knowledgeable and does not mind sharing his knowledge. He keeps me informed of the best nutrients, treatment, cancer updates and other questions that I may have. I feel comfortable sharing any concerns with him, even if it doesn't pertain to cancer. He actually listens to my concerns and address them appropriately and without embarrassment. He is easy to talk to, understand and share personable information. I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends; although, I wish they do not need the services.

Scott is a great doctor so far. Explains everything for the most ignorant and stops when he says you understand. Granted my issues have not been resolved yet, I know it will take some time to get there. Definitely like seeing Scott. Although the location was fairly busy and once you are checked it, the waiting times can be greater than normal.

Dr.Cross took care of my husband during his Pancreatic Cancer diagnosis and treatment. Could not have asked for better care: compassionate, timely returned calls and always partnering with us on the best care plan. Recently I had clinical need and again had nothing but great care and service from his care team. An excellent physician who truly cares about his patients and their families.

My mother in law is in a major hospital with a major mass. Dr. Cross took such initiative to make sure our family and her understood every single thing that was going on. Even made a phone call to us later in the evening on a Friday to explain everything. Answered all questions we had. Even said he was going to keep up with her. His bedside manner is so kind and passionate and caring. He knows everyone has different situations and he adheres to those. One of the best drs I’ve ever had to meet. He has a tough job, but makes himself available for it all. Thank You Dr. Cross!!

Dr Cross addresses and treats anything that comes up during and after your treatments. He answers all your questions completely and in layman’s terms. I couldn’t have gotten any luckier than when he showed up in my hospital room. Sometimes the waits are long but I never felt like he was rushing me.

An excellent Oncologist! I've been seeing him for over 10 years. He is very knowledgeable and shares a lot of medical information and research related information with me about my case. I ask a lot of questions... he patiently listens and takes the time to respond. Additionally, he encourages exercise and good diet. Not a lot of doctors do that.
