What Our Patients Have To Say

“Dr. Brand is both my surgeon and oncologist. Having access to a doctor of his caliber, with his impressive credentials and medical expertise, has made my experience with cancer much more manageable. He has been an extreme blessing in my life and I know I could not be in better hands.

Two years ago, I was diagnosed with stage III ovarian cancer. At 50 years old, with no family history of breast or ovarian cancer, it was a devastating diagnosis. My level of care was listed as Acute and my future seemed ominous. I was immediately referred to Dr. Brand by the emergency room staff who spoke very highly of his dedication and skill.

I met Dr. Brand the following day and was instantly comforted by his calm and confident demeanor. My treatment has involved two aggressive surgeries, twelve rounds of chemotherapy and the discovery of a harmful gene mutation. It has not been an easy journey, but under the care and supervision of Dr. Brand, I have had a complete response and am now in remission.

Over the course of my treatment I’ve greatly appreciated Dr. Brand’s candor, concern, and compassion for my prognosis, along with the high level of excellence he and his knowledgeable staff provide.

Two years and counting, I am alive, healthy, and vibrant. I am hopeful and optimistic about my future. I know I move forward with complete trust in Dr. Brand’s guidance and with immense gratitude for the work that he does.”

“Medicine is powerful. Surgery can save lives. Nothing can replace trust in your doctor and the power of peace of mind. When I was first diagnosed with ovarian cancer, all I wanted to know was, “what do I need to do, and who is the best doctor?” It has been documented that people get better even when they think they are getting the right treatment. Not only was I getting the right treatment, I knew I was in the right place, with the right doctor getting the very best available for the type of cancer that I had. It is important to me to have all the facts and to be able to talk to my doctor about the best way to treat my illness. Dr. Ely Brand is my Oncologist. I have total faith and complete trust in his ability to give me the best possible chance of survival. Let’s face it, sometimes ovarian cancer wins the battle. I want to go to battle with the best in the business. Dr. Brand and his dedicated staff are my warriors and we have won this war.”
