Janet Curran Perlman
Recently my 13 year-old twin children wrote a letter to Dr. Sirkin thanking him for saving my life. He and his team did painstakingly put me back together after a horrendous auto accident, but equally important he gave me hope. “By the time of your last visit” he said “you will walk through that door” and so I did. I call him my hero and so he is. His good humor and caring lessened the pain of a dreadful time.
There was a welcoming service and the staff was very helpful. Dr. Neal and the PA were very informative and answered every question. They were very pleasant.
Dr. Rossman is an excellent doctor. He took the time to listen and evaluate me. I felt very comfortable as if I have known him for years. I would and will be recommending Dr. Rossman to all my bariatric friends.

I am Gershom Durant’s grandmother. I would like to recognize Dr. Sanjeev Sabharwal for his distinguished treatment and expertise in his medical field with Gershom Durant. He assured us that Gershom will be whole again and we would like everyone to know how special Dr. Sanjeev Sabharwal is in every way.
I was diagnosed with osteosarcoma at 17yrs old. As a senior in high school I was looking forward to graduation, prom and deciding on college. All of a sudden, all these things were no longer important.
My first reaction was “I was too young, I thought cancer only happens to old people.” Looking around me at the time, I was one of the oldest people at the clinic, most of the other patients were much younger (2-13yrs old). That made me realize how blessed I am to have lived and laugh for the first 17yrs of my life. I believed this diagnosis was a disappointment but I refused to let that destroy my many pending blessings.
I believe my cancer outcome is based on my spiritual beliefs, my support system and my team of doctors. At the time I was diagnosed, my tumor was well advanced and metastasized to part of my lungs. The doctors were not too sure about my prognosis either. All we had was faith and belief to trust God to guide my doctors. The treatment was a long journey, lots of crying and ups and downs. The only constant was the support of my family.
My appreciation to Dr. Brenda Sison, my oncologist, and the United hospital “Valeria fund cancer clinic” nurses and staff for all their support and hard work in putting together the right treatment plan; Dr. Joseph Benevenia, my surgeon, and the rest of the surgical team for their meticulous hard work in removing all the tumors. Despite some setbacks, Dr. Benevenia’s persistence and goal for perfection saved my leg and my life, I will forever be grateful.
Here we are 25yrs later, still cancer free (I can’t believe I am cured) and I am still hoping for a longer recovery to enjoy my 3 girls and watch them grow into beautiful women.
God may bless your hands. My life before surgery was filled of pain and sadness but thanks to the hands of Dr. Vives my life changed completely. I cannot thank you enough for your quality of care, professionalism and concern that was demonstrated by all of the staff. Anyone reading this, I highly recommend Dr. M. Vives, he will not disappoint you.

I Gilberto Perez certify that Dr. Michael Vives performed my spinal surgery. I feel it was a blessing from God because he saved my life. Each and every day I feel better. I thank him for the treatment he’s given me.
I was diagnosed with sarcoma in 1994. I had a recurrence in 2000. I had two more recurrences in 2015, where I met Dr. Beebe in the emergency room for another condition. She found the recurrence of my sarcoma and has been treating me ever since. She is a phenomenal doctor and she saved my life.
[Dr. Benevenia] Nice, calm, and collected manner of presentation of the findings. Very reassuring and encouraging. Concerned for the patients’ well-being in post operation stages of treatment.
Today my son had an appointment with Dr. Benevenia and had a great experience. He was very warm and caring, answered all my questions, and put my concerns at ease. Great staff also, very professional.
