Patient Stories from Our Cancer Treatment Clinics in Arizona

Dear Dr. Grado:

Thank you for your excellent care of my prostate cancer. I have been remiss in not telling you that you are an outstanding doctor. Not only do you "know your stuff", but your willingness to answer all my many questions over the years shows your respect for me as both a patient and a person.

My wife has been with me on most of the office visits and shares my esteem. We both have faced doctors who bring little credit to their profession, and you are a welcome and refreshing example of what a good doctor should be.

We have also received good treatment from the others in your office. They are a credit to you.

The road from Las Cruces, New Mexico, is a long and tiring drive. However, the drive is worthwhile because of the meaningful office visits with you and your staff.

Dr. Grado and staff, you saved the life of an acquaintance of mine. You are honest, in your face up front, and sincere. From the moment you walk in you see that this is not a typical office. You care about your patients and it shows! Your referral was the best possible who shares the same work ethics and love for their patients as yourself. I could not have asked for a better physician and staff. Long drive but WELL WORTH IT! You saved their life with you honesty even though it was not what they wanted to hear. The time you spent with them made all the difference in the world with this person. THE BEST OF THE BEST ALL THE WAY AROUND! Thank You!!!!!

I have never felt more confident or optimistic than I have under Dr. Grado' care and his entire staff! You are not just a number here, Dr. Grado treats you like you're his only patient!

I was so fortunate to find Dr. Grado and his excellent team to treat my breast cancer. Since I was "Triple Negative" and chemotherapy is not always successful with the assistance of my surgeon (the amazing Dr. Christa Corn) and Dr. Grado I elected to treat my cancer with surgery and radiation. It was a complete success! Three years later I am cancer free.

My experience with Southwest Oncology couldn't have been better. I ask many, many questions about my medical treatments and Dr. Grado patiently answered them all, never talked down to me, always treated me as a partner on the journey. His team members were compassionate, skilled and conscious of my privacy. I highly recommend this provider!
