“Dear Staff: My husband and I would like to thank you for your wonderful way of caring for your patients. For the past six weeks that E. has been coming to you, he always tells me how great you have taken care of him, and always with smiles on your faces. I know that each one of you has had something to do with his recovery. God bless you and keep up the good work.” (patient letter)

Keep up the good work. I want to thank you for all the things you did for me when I was feeling down. You guys pick me up. You’ll always be special to me and I will keep in touch.” (patient letter)

“Giving the Very Best Care” (a letter to the editor of The Journal News)
I am writing to say what a wonderful experience I had at Advanced ROS. I was there for 30 radiation treatments following surgery for breast cancer. The facilities are new, light and comfortable and easily accessed without going through the hospital, with a parking lot right by the door. I was greeted by name when I arrived and offered a cup of tea. I never had to wait and was usually in and out within 10 minutes. The staff was extraordinary, obviously well-trained to use their new, what looked like science fiction equipment. They certainly have a great reputation. Dr. Margaret Torrey supervised my treatment carefully and kindly, checking my progress weekly and she was always available for questions. The radiation therapists were friendly and gentle as well as thoroughly capable. In fact, although I am happy to have finished my treatment, I will really miss seeing everyone there.” (G.K. Palisades, NY)


“Dear Dr. Torrey & Staff:
Day 33
Has finally come to be!
As we travel along life’s way,
we take many paths for varying lengths of stay.
My visits here were helped by all,
a memorable way to spend the Fall!
Many thanks for all you do,
Many thanks to all of you.”
(patient poem)

“This is the best medical office I have ever been in.” (patient survey)

“Dear Dr. Gerstley: Over the last few years I’ve had to deal with many doctors. Some good, some not so good. I want to thank you for being exceptional. Your office is well organized and friendly. But most of all you kept us informed and were always available to answer our questions. A special thanks to your wonderful staff.” (patient letter)

“To Everyone: I’m walking away. Hooray! Thanks to everyone for your care, kindness and patience. You made a scary time easier with your smiles and friendship.” (patient letter)
