Patient Story3 Minute ReadOct | 22 | 2019
I definitely have a strong emotional connection with Newton-Wellesley. My family has gotten fabulously skilled and compassionate care there for decades.
So, when my mammogram found cancer, I knew I wanted my care at Newton-Wellesley. The doctors at their cancer center — who are Mass General Cancer Center doctors — continuously go above and beyond for their patients. They are bright, hip and powerful. Dr. Comander told me about a great boutique on Newbury Street for my wig. Who cures cancer and is a beauty expert?!
Over time, I’ve witnessed the brilliant doctors and amazing care offered at Newton-Wellesley. Best of all, my team — all miracle workers who supported me in so many ways— made sure I got to be with my daughter on her wedding day.
