Compassion During Cancer Treatment

Published on: 
Extraordinary Healer®, Extraordinary Healer® Vol. 15, Volume 15,

A patient wrote about the smile and hug he received every time he went for a doctor’s visit, in addition to the wealth of information she provided whenever he had questions related to his cancer.

Joyce Spitz, RN, is the most compassionate medical professional I have ever met. She is knowledgeable, caring and calming. She listens and acknowledges that you are heard. Joyce makes every effort to seek information and direction to solve your problem.

We have been going to Maryland Oncology and Hematology in Columbus, Maryland, for 10 years, and Joyce has never failed to greet us with a warm smile and a hug. This world would definitely benefit from having an infinite number of Joyces in the medical field. Big hugs and many thanks to Joyce.
