Patient Stories

"I was impressed with Massey’s team approach to developing and coordinating my treatment. The entire team of breast cancer experts was in one location working together — my surgeon, oncologist, radiologist, nurses and others. I didn’t have to travel to various specialists all over town and worry whether they were communicating with each other. The personalized experience made me feel like I had a second family at Massey." - Terrell Harrigan, breast cancer survivor
