"Nothing but praise for Radiation/Oncology Departments at Princess Alexandra Hospital"

About: Princess Alexandra Hospital / Radiology

(as the patient),

I have nothing but praise for these two departments. The care and consideration that I received before and after my two cancer operations has been nothing but exceptional. The operations and the follow up treatment and monitoring that I am receiving now couldn't be better. I believe that the PAH is the best hospital in Australia. I had one kidney removed because of cancer then years later I had my prostate removed also because of cancer. Also I had my gall bladder removed. This operation and after care treatment and professionalism was also the best. I also had a operation performed last year and only waited six months for this operation. Some people might complain that this was an excessive time to wait and maybe in some circumstances it would be but I was quite content with the time frame and with the outcome.

My one kidney is functioning well without it's mate. My prostate is no longer there but my PSA is rising but the Princess Alexandra Hospital is monitoring my progress. The one criticism that I do have, not with any of the above departments but still with the PAH was that I was diagnosed with a tumour which I still have today. It took me a number of years to see a specialist in the Oncology Department.
