Meet Velious, Prostate Cancer Survivor
“In fall 2014, my PSA level jumped to 14. I had a da Vinci prostatectomy, but my numbers began to climb again, so I was treated for Prostate Cancer with Proton Therapy at Ackerman Cancer Center. When I completed proton treatment, my PSA score was undetectable, below 1.0. The quality of treatment I received at Ackerman Cancer Center helped. It’s like a family here. It reflects in the way everybody treats the patients. Dr. Ackerman is always available. Any time you ask, he stops what he’s doing, and he’ll talk to you.”
Meet Ken, Prostate Cancer Survivor
“Excellent doctors. Excellent equipment. Excellent staff.”
Meet James, Prostate Cancer Survivor
“I finished Proton Radiation Therapy treatments in July 2015. The treatments couldn’t have gone better. The entire staff at Ackerman Cancer Center was very professional and very caring. I interacted with many people at the Center. From the office workers, to the nurses, social workers, dietitians, technicians, and doctors—I was always treated with positive attitudes and the feeling that everyone was working just for me. I am very grateful to the Ackerman Cancer Center for my treatment and excellent care. I do not believe that I could have received any better treatment and care anywhere in the world.”
Meet Angelo, Prostate Cancer Survivor
“I can honestly say that I have never been shown [this level of] compassion and care at any medical facility I have ever been to. The entire staff displayed a true feeling of caring for their patients. They made me feel like family!”
