Stories From Dr. Orcutt’s Patients

Jimmy Waddell, Melanoma

Jimmy Waddell was diagnosed with Stage 4 Melanoma in 2014. Shortly after, he began treatment with Dr. Orcutt at Charleston Oncology. Jimmy’s wife also became a patient of Dr. Orcutt, “their hero.”

April Garbrick, Breast Cancer

In January 2003 with a 2-month-old baby girl, I (29 years old) was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. Dr. Orcutt and my family soon became “friends.” After six chemo treatments, every other week followed by radiation therapy and of course many, many, many CT scans and nuclear bones scans with a few MRIs thrown in and TONS of prayers… I am a survivor! All along I never thought of myself as a survivor- I was just surviving until the next test or next scan or next appointment. Dr. Orcutt was always cautious always looking out for my best interest. 18 years! Yes, 18 years cancer-free and now with an 18-year-old high school graduate. I told him at my most recent appointment that we had come a long way. This is true!
