During a routine visit to Dr. Brown at Gerry Medical Center in Monticello, Dr. Brown noticed my PSA levels were elevated. He referred me to Dr. Quinif, a Urologist, who did a biopsy which determined that I had prostate cancer.

My family and I were uncertain and afraid when we learned the diagnosis, but Dr. Quinif explained that I had T1C early stage cancer. He explained my treatment options—surgery or radiation therapy.

Dr. Quinif recommended that I see Dr. Johnson at the Lewis Hall Singletary Oncology Center.

Dr. Johnson was very understanding and expressed himself well. He explained that radiation treatment was his recommendation. He made me feel very comfortable. 

Dr. Johnson’s nurse, the oncology workers and the patients were very nice and helpful. Everyone was all smiles and they answered any questions that I had.

My radiation therapy was with the Trilogy machine. It’s amazing. I’ve never seen anything like it. The room it’s in makes you feel calm because it doesn’t look like you’re in a doctor’s office.

I would recommend Archbold to anyone. You meet the nicest people from the front desk to the people who clean up. Mrs. Tina Jackson, the social worker, and Archbold have worked with me on my hospital bills, so I didn’t have to worry about them while I was going through treatment.

For all those who worked with me at Archbold, thank you from the goodness of my heart.
