After Treatment from Finley, the Voice of the Hawkeyes is Loud and Clear

“When I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in May 2011, I wasn’t sure where to turn at first—as the voice of the Hawkeyes, I could have received treatment at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. Instead I got advice from the oncologists there in Iowa City. They said, ‘Stay close to home, Gary. It’s less stress on you, and Finley Hospital has Wendt—a first-rate cancer center.’

“Sure enough, I did receive great care by the Finley Cancer Center and its radiation oncologist, Dr. Bobby Koneru. The care was state-of-the-art, and after 42 treatments—where they gave pinpoint radiation treatments right at the tumor—I am now cancer free. And I never had to stray far from home.
“Getting expert treatment right down the street saved me time away from work and home. Everyone from the radiologists to the nurses and support staff (thank you, Trista, Charlye and Kris!) were professional and very supportive. These folks healed me, and I can’t say enough good things about them. I would recommend the Finley Wendt Regional Cancer Center to anyone needing treatment.”
