It’s been a long, tough journey but they got us through it… there’s no reason to go anywhere else.

John McGlashen, Patient

I initially came to Bronson because I was feeling really ill. I went to the emergency room, and luckily for us Dr. Bartholomew was on duty that day. He explained to me that I had stage four colon cancer and the next day he had me in surgery. A few days later he came into my room and said, “By the way, you’ll be going to the Bronson Battle Creek Cancer Care Center and Dr. Mishra will be your doctor. I already made you an appointment.

Dr. Mishra is the best. She was always there when we really needed her, and she shows you the real human touch when you need her to. I love the fact that we walked in there one day and she said “By the way, there’s this program you qualify for, and we already made you an appointment.” Just like Dr. Bartholomew, “We already made you an appointment.” I love that.

We were here pretty frequently and you never felt bad about coming. You knew it was going to be about as good of an experience as you can get under these circumstances. I had scans done and they were clean, a couple of colonoscopies and they were clean. It’s been a long, tough journey but they got us through it. If you go anywhere else you’re just nuts. There’s no reason to go anywhere else.
