I am patient of Piedmont Cancer Center. Dr.Ballard is my local oncologist. He is a good, old friend of Dr. Kemeny from MSKCC. They cooperate and exchange patients to make treatment as convenient as possible. I am being seen by both Dr. Ballard and Dr. Kemeny.
The nurses are all nice, warm. They have been my cheerleaders and friends during chemo. When I come back for pump flash I feel always welcome.
