Dr. Schiffner and his staff gave my sister the finest of care, while providing a loving and nurturing environment for her. She was undergoing a very difficult treatment for her recurring lymphoma and the physical and emotional support provided by Dr. Schiffner and his staff provided comfort to her - and to me as her primary caregiver. The radiation therapist, nurse and social worker were absolutely wonderful, Dr. Schiffner was so kind and showed extraordinary patience with us - always available to answer questions and calm fears. We feel so blessed to have been in the care of such a wonderful, talented and loving group. Thank you all.
