I was recently diagnosed with stage 4 cancer at Mon Valley Hospital in June 2018 and have been a patient there ever since. The care and compassion of everyone that I have dealt with has been top notch and 2nd to none. One of my nurses, Alaina K., on the 6th floor here at Mon Valley, she was my rock before, during, and after getting the news about my diagnosis. She gave me nothing but the utmost respect, care and compassion that anyone could want when receiving such life altering news. Not to exclude all the other nurses that were absolutely caring, compassionate, and wonderful dealing with me for a whole week while i was given all my testing to try to figure me out. Even the interns they had assisting their nurses were absolutely awesome. Every department I went thru during my stay, such as, x-ray, mri, cat scans, biopsy, everyone was absolutely awesome. The Cancer Center here at Mon Valley Hospital, I can't type enough words to express my gratitude towards how caring and compassionate and knowledgeable and wonderful everyone has been with me and my family in both the Radiation and Oncology Departments. Dr. Isaac and his team in the Radiation Department including Lori, Debbie, the (2)Chris' and way too many other names to type, but all have treated me as they would their own family or friends. Dr. Tonkonow and his Oncology Team including Loretta, Jane, Jessica, again the list is endless of wonderful, knowledgeable, compassionate, people that he has on his staff as well. I'm sure they don't get to hear it enough, and I hope they read this and know they have people out there that they have either treated or they are still currently treating, like myself, that do appreciate how truly awesome they are. And I can tell you from previous bad experiences at other hospitals and the poor quality of care that I have received at these places, I'm trusting my life as it goes forward with these wonderful people at Mon Valley Hospital. So hopefully these kind, wonderful, folks that work there get to see this review because they truly deserve the recognition for giving their patients such great care. And I am also hopeful this helps someone in making a decision where to go to receive the best care for whatever it is they are going through. And by the way, if you are staying for awhile at this hospital, their food is excellent. Kudos to the Hospital's Dietary Department and thanks again to everyone at Mon Valley Hospital that has had a hand in helping me fight my battle with cancer.
