    in Duncannon, Pa. |
    I was diagnosed with stage 4 throat cancer in January of 2010. After consulting with several doctors in the Philadelphia/South Jersey area, I decided to go with Dr Berk. After 6 weeks of chemotherapy and radiation which granite was grueling but I survived and almost 7 years later I am doing well. Most people after hearing of my diagnosis and treatment and looking at me now are astonished. I now workout 3 times a week, have gained my weight back and am in great shape for being 66 years old.
