I received amazing care and treatment. I've referred friends to WCI and,unfortunately, a friend's father was too far to go to Winship and passed away from a brain tumor that I was treated for by the staff at Winship. I'm 42 and I had a brain tumor diagnosis at 38. I have a 13 year old son that I missed his entire 4th grade year from going to Emory for surgery and rehab therapy but I will be there for the rest of his life because of the amazing Physicians that cared for me. I live in a small town in SC and the Neurologist that saw me at my local hospital said my tumor was inoperable unless I wanted to go to Duke or Emory. Since my parents lived in Atlanta, I went home with my dad and 3 days later I saw a Neurologist at Emory that admitted me to Emory Midtown the same day. The next morning, I had surgery and I'm going through therapy now in my hometown in SC, reunited with my son. After surgery to remove the tumor, radiation therapy and chemotherapy to ensure it will not return, I'm happy to say I've been having MRI results showing no signs of the cancer trying to return! I do and will continue to refer anyone I know that needs cancer treatment to Winship because they saved my life and so many others!! They are the best!!

My mother went in for joint pain, and was diagnosed with acute kidney failure and multiple myeloma. Was told that she could expect a full recovery after attending a trial, after two rounds of chemo and dialysis three times a week, my mother ultimately died of starvation. Despite my repeated cries for help, early on, they refused to give her a feeding tube. In a matter of 5 months, she dropped 100 pounds and no one cared. She died and I received no condolences from anyone at Emory clinic, nor Emory dialysis despite our time that was spent together during this horrible time. After her results weren't favorable enough to be counted in the trial, she was thrown away like yesterday's trash. I guess grant money is more important. Winship can look very forward to me being as vocal as possible, to anyone that'll listen!

I have been treated over the last 1 1/2 years. I have had no problems with treatment, clinicians or clerical staff. I have always felt like the providers cared. No difficulties noted with phone or appointment staff. My only concern was the wait time. Frequently waited for labs passed my appointment time which on turn caused significant wait with the provider. One visit I wasn't seen for nearly 3 hours passed my appointment time.

My family member is beginning treatment at Emory University's Winship Cancer Center. The doctor is very good and her nurse as well. Very detailed and experienced. I am troubled by the staff who answer the phones etc. It's hit or miss with them. They are not properly trained and tend to get defensive when stretched beyond their script. We have only been dealing with them the past few weeks and already I am frustrated. Major test results are taking two painfully long weeks and because the doctor is on vacation, no one seems to be able to give an answer. The frustration level is rising even more as you can imagine. If that's isn't enough, we got a call stating that she was scheduled to see a pulmonologist - at the same time she is scheduled for her first infusion. We have not been told the reason she needs to see a pulmonologist. I am having some serious regrets. The doctor, her nurse and some of the staff are good, but the support outside of that office leaves much to be desired. I hope they plan to fix this customer non-service piece or find a better trained call-center with folks who leave their attitudes at home.

Its a comedy of errors with my husbands life. We went down in Oct, met with a surgical doctor and an oncologist, all was good. Went for two treatments of a new trial in Snellville. Another petscan was done in early Dec. We didn't hear from anyone the Dr in Snellville called down and was told they never received the scan. WE drove it down Jan 5th. HAND CARRIED it to the receptionist on their floor, per there instructions. Still no response. Husband called and made a Dr appt. Day before DR appt we got a call asking us to get a copy of the scan and send it down. NO we took and handed it to the Dr at our appt on 1/21. Was told we would receive a call Wed night at the latest. Nothing. . Finally a call back saying it had been to long from the petscan and he needed another. So we get to pay again due to their mix up???? Then we were told they would call on Monday 2/1 to schedule the scan. We received the scan back from them (the one 1/5) that they never received. We called again Monday afternoon. Finally nurse called back and had no idea what petscan needed to be scheduled.....You cant even get a person to complain to. We are checking out other avenues. This is there job, and my husbands life. He was diagnosed with aggressive nodular melanoma and all this time has been lost, because of them.

I am a voice for my mother who was a Cancer patient here at Emory. I witnessed this place kill my mother and tell me she was going to die eventually from cancer....WHAT! My mother was in ICU room 7 and had contracted several infections during her stay here she was filthy. I got a call she needed to be placed on life support the day after she arrived. When I got there they had her hooked up to the machines and before I could find out her status they were rushing me to make a decision to pull the plug..REALLY! I am head decision maker for my mothers will so I told them I wanted to wait for other family members before making a huge decision like that and what do they do as I am grieving and trying to spend time with my mother?? Come and ask me every 2 minutes if I am ready to make a decision. Finally when my family arrives we make the decision to send her to hospice. While sitting in the room the doctor asked if she goes out do you want us to resuscitate her I answered yes about one minute later the nurse comes back in the room snatching away cords from my mothers body I watched her heart rate rise up and down and then flatline all while I am asking the nurse what she is doing and she never answers me. Once my mother flatlined they just watch her and call the doctor in to call the time of death. I asked them why are you not resuscitating her and the doctor turned to me and said "i thought you said not to" I never signed a DHR and damn sure never told him that...within 4 minutes of her passing they came back in and said you only have 10 minutes before we take her to the morgue so could we hurry up...my whole family was grieving they did not care...they were more concerned with wasting time, medicine and money on a elderly patient then treating everyone equal. When I got my mothers death certificate it said she died from septic shock and not to mention the doctor in the ICU unit was still training smh This place is murdering patients and they should not be getting away with this..

A once-in-a-lifetime coincidence! The alliance of Winship and President Carter, both proven as world champion progressives, and now allied: [1] to gain for us all perhaps a decade or two more of Jimmy's and Rosalyn's labors of love; and [2] to help them both to learn about, and "spread the good word" about, an old old truth that we modern medics have long long ago opted to forget: Most tumors contain massive amounts of acid loving fungus -- fungus that grows on all forms of sugars, and shrinks as we abstain more and more from consuming sugars, and shrinks vastly quicker as we consume 2 to 8 quarter teaspoons of acid neutralizing baking soda per day. Hey, can't hurt, right? And might help, right? And along with generous doses of the fresh wheat grass juice that our immune systems love, and along with following the below advice***, Winship just might save our blessed Jimmy's happy life by the very same forward thinking that saved my wife's life. *** [Advice from our North Woods' very own W.T. Johnson, circa 1882] "Eat like a rabbit, and exercise like a rabbit, but DON'T do romance like a rabbit." Many thanks to Winship -- for life saving help to us in the past, and for all of your progressive ways in the future. Tikkun Olam Ren Thelp, Frank Johnson, and "Slim" Pickins

My family member started treatment at Emory University's Winship Cancer Center. To say I have been disapointed with our experience is an understatement. We spent seven hours one day seeing three doctors as the doctors were running behind. The staff that greet you and answer phones are not well trained and spend more time chatting to one another than helping you. They do not seem to care or are not trained correctly. It is very frustrating dealing with them when you need help. Phone calls are not returned, drugs are not ordered as promised, and we are in a life or death situation. We have been waiting for two weeks for the chemo drug to be called into the pharmacy. We were told it was an oversight by a staff member. Really? There is no back-up individual to double check to make certain these kind of things do not happen? I always heard Winship was a top notch facility and am actually sad to realize it is not. Sad for the patients, for Atlanta, and of course, for my family.
