in Youngstown, OH1 |
I was treated by Dr Vivian at Akron General in 1999 for ovarian & peritoneal cancer. In 2007 I had lesions on my liver and was treated by Dr Vivian at University Hospital in Cleveland. Dr is very caring and compassionate and Thanks to her Expertise I am an 18 year cancer Survivor ! I HIGHLY recommend her.

I have been a patient if Dr VonGruenigen's since May 2015. I was very happy with her as a doctor and her knowledge. She performed the surgery for my hysterectomy. I feel great and was pleased with the outcome. I've just recently been advised via mail that she is no longer with the practice at Summa in Akron. Very sad to hear. I would highly recommend her as a Oncology Gynaecologist. I wish I knew where she has movement to. ??
