Stories From Dr. Saylors’ Patients
Dr. Saylors & her team provide elite patient-centered care! Amidst COVID-19, I was faced with a life-threatening diagnosis of Metastatic Breast Cancer. Needless to say, at 36 years old, as a wife and mother of a 6-year-old, I was overwhelmed. However, Dr. Saylors responded with urgency. With a consistently calm, yet professional demeanor, she provided a comprehensive treatment plan, reassured me through the process, and helped me to achieve unbelievable progress.
I was diagnosed with breast cancer in September of 2018. It was a scary stressful time. I work full-time as a nurse. I am in my 40’s and I have 4 young children at home. This was a complete shock for myself and my family. Dr. Saylors sat across from me at that first meeting and gave me the information I needed to start fighting and stay hopeful. She and her team have stood by me through this. They have been educators, friends, and medical providers. They have sat with me while I cried in fear and they listened to my panicked husband when my pain was not controlled. The chemo nurses and the front desk staff- everyone made this a little more bearable. And now, on the other side of chemotherapy, they continue to be there- when I get scared and need reassurance or when I get to celebrate- they are still right alongside me through this journey.
Dr. Saylors is so caring and awesome! Going through cancer is just overwhelming. She takes her time and makes sure you understand the diagnosis and the treatment process. Dr. Saylors allows you to ask questions, even if you ask the same question multiple times. She and her staff made such a shocking diagnosis acceptable and manageable. She was a Godsend to me. I feel very fortunate to have her as my oncologist.
