I cannot recommend Dr. Nigh, and his entire staff, highly enough. I was referred to him by my breast care surgeon. I had a six week course of radiation therapy and have had one follow-up office visit to date. Apart from his medical expertise, Dr. Nigh communicates a wonderful sense of caring compassion. He also loaned me Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book, which I found so informative, I purchased my own copy! (I would recommend it to any woman, not just those of us diagnosed with breast cancer.)

Dr. Nigh broke the news to me that I had cancer. It was a frightening moment, yet his passion for his patients and his experience in this form of cancer immediately put me at peace at gave me the resolve to follow the treatment plan he and my oncologist recommended. I truly believed that Dr. Nigh wanted to bring me to remission as much as I wanted it. The radiation plan was precise, specific to my tumor and fascinating to learn about. His team is amazing as well. Dr. Nigh is first rate!
