When I was diagnosed last year with cancer, Dr. Bryne was very patient with the many questions that we had. I wasn't scared to ask any questions. He was kind, patient, and he had such a positive outlook, it made me feel secure that everything was gonna be alright. I never once felt rushed, and still don't after my treatment has ended. I am so Greatful for the fantastic work they provide

The facility and operating units run smoothly with well trained, pleasant personnel Still being treated by elements at this facility'oncology, radiology, urology and each visit is consistently well organized. A defimite high bar is set by the teams at this facility!

Dr Byrne is one of the best Dr's I have ever had . He is caring and takes time to answers any concerns I have had. I've been going to him for a number of years. both as an oncologist and now as a hematologist. He even took time to call me when I was in the hospital when I was concerned about my health problem. I would highly recommend him to everyone if you need a oncologist or hematologist. He is great!!!!
