I am writing this on behalf of my aunt who was DX with third stage renal cell carcinoma of her left kidney. She decided to go to Moore's Cancer Center and met with Dr. Derweesh. He was outstandingly professional, caring, and carefully explained the robotic partial nephrectomy procedure to all family present. Operating room staff gave me two updates during her surgery at Jacob Thornton's hospital.. Her recovery took 3 days. Dr. Derweesh saved my aunt's life. The entire experience was positive.
