Stories From Dr. Michaelsen’s Patients
Kisha Lyles, Breast Cancer
Dr. Michaelsen took the time to answer our questions and concerns. At that moment, I realized my life was not going to be the same, and my “new normal” was unfolding. For example, my destination wedding would be postponed, my hair loss was inevitable, and I would have to go through grueling chemotherapy rounds by myself. I am glad I chose Charleston Oncology! Dr. Michaelsen and the Charleston Oncology staff have proven to be my Allstar Team and for that, I am grateful.
Kenneth Porcher, Gastric Cancer
This was something I never thought would happen to me, having been diagnosed with gastric cancers 7 years ago. Thank you to Dr. Michaelsen! I am whole again, and I want to thank God that they [Charleston Oncology] were there to make this smooth transition. Thank you, Charleston Oncology, you are the best!
