    Cancer Treatment Centers of America

    The worst

    Overall Experience:

    If you have been diagnosed with cancer, I beg you to go to an ACTUAL cancer treatment facility like Mayo Clinic or M.D. Anderson.

    My wife started going there around a year and a half ago. The chemo she was given infiltrated her whole forearm. She was hospitalized because if this "unfortunate incident" and suffered many side effects including acute kidney failure. The worst part was that she was unable to receive treatment for two months. Dr. Citrin, her oncologist, was surprised how much her cancer progressed in those two months. He didn't even remember what chemo she was previously on. I felt like she was just a number ($). He said "my dear, I will try to do a better job for you in the future."

    Long story short, there was no future. She had fluid build up in her pericardium that eventually took her life. She complained to Citrin about shortness of breath, but he told her not to worry about it because we find a chemo that works, and the shortness of breath will go away. That whole facility was an unprofessional calamity of errors that cost my wife her life.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
