Have recomended the hospital to several people telling them about my care treatment and miraculous survival with a diagnosis of terminal pancreatic and liver cancer in 2014 still alive and kicking in 2018 thanks to clinical trial and a new drug only available at WFB.


Could not have found a more professional staff anywhere to deal with my condition (stage 4 pancreatic cancer with liver involved) I have been called the miracle man thanks to Wake Forest staff and being enrolled in the clinical trial with Cornerstone Pharmaceutical Company. I am lucky to be alive this long and with the current treatment plan on staying here for a few more years Thanks to everyone involved


After waiting more than 45 minutes, this visit was very short. I felt the information was too brief, no depth.


We have a good relationship with the medical problem but also talk about personal experiences on several different subjects.


*Dr. Rodwige J.Desnoyers & asst. were wonderful.


I think he is very good technically. It is just difficult to speak with him when there is no appointment. It takes days for him to respond to requests, either via or via leaving a message.
