Here are kind words from others
When my sister was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer, we were referred to Dr. Ruemu Birhiray by her surgeon. What a blessing! Actually, one of our family's greatest blessings in life! I have never met a more wonderful person and I have high standards for character.
From the first appointment, he was extremely professional and compassionate. He gives you all the time you need for questions about your condition or issues you may have and thoroughly explains your treatment and drugs. He always makes his patients feel like they are the most important person in the world. I have met dozens of his patients and everyone feels the same way. We drove two and one half hours each way for my sister to be treated by Dr. Birhiray and we would have traveled any distance to be under his care.
He has a smile that lights up when he sees his patients which lifts their spirits and makes them feel loved and cared about as a human being, not just a number or a chart. When you are a patient of Dr. B, you become his friend.
I have been a patient of Dr. Birhiray and staff for over three years now. I have been treated with the utmost care and respect. The professionalism and heartfelt love that they express every visit is commendable to say the least. I would and have referred this office many times over the last few years. I came to see Dr. Birhiray after being diagnosed with Rectal Cancer, stage 4, Dr. Birhiray broke the news to me that the cancer had spread to my liver. A very difficult day and I thank God everyday that he was the one who broke this to me. What a genuine and caring soul he is. The nurses that work in this office I would say to be at the top of their game also. They are knowledgeable and helpful, caring and compassionate. As they say, what happens at the top trickles down and it most certainly does in this office. Dr. Birhiray is well educated in his field and I trust him impeccably with my life!!
The day before Thanksgiving of 2002 I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Mantle Cell Lymphoma. My prognosis was very poor. Since then I have had an autologous Stem Cell Transplant and a reoccurence of my Lymphoma. Dr. Birhiray with God's help has given me 10 more years of life. He listens when I talk to him. He has invited me to call him at home if I have any questions. When I was hositalized he has come to the hospital on weekends and holidays when he was not on call to be sure I was OK. He is not only a very skilled oncologist he is a very caring person. He has a busy practice but he always takes whatever time is necessary for my complete care. He is a very pleasant person as well .I always look forward to our follow up appointments . He is truly a blessing to our community.
I am a physician who was mostly a symptomatic at age 64 when I learned I had Mantle Cell Lymphoma with a leukemia presentation. I feared for my life but chose to be treated by Dr. B since I had known him for 2 years. He was extremely kind and caring whe giving me the facts. We have had a superb doctor- patient relationship of trust and truth. I recommend him to anyone I know who is diagnosed. His staff make the infusion process comfortable and not unpleasant. I know he is always there for me. Because of my background we have honest discussions and I have faith I am getting the very best Rx.
When you are referred to an oncologist, it is a scary time. Dr. Birhiray answered our questions and provided a very thoughtful approach to my treatent and one which was specifically tailored to my diganosis and my age. Despite having to discuss very serious diagnoses, Dr. Birhiray has an excellent "bedside manner" and we always felt hopeful. We know many other patients who feel the same about Dr. Birhiray, including a close-family member of ours who had a cancer diagnosis which was difficult to figure out.
Dr. Birhiray is the most compationate, attentive, and kind doctor that we've ever encountered. His commitment to ensuring comfort and the best possible treatment to help our family member is a true testatment to the dedication to his profession. Even though it was a difficult time for our family, his spirit and postivity were contagious. He went above and beyond to help us navigate through many decisions. We would recommend him with the highest regard...
